13 Myths and Misconceptions of SEO

Posted on July 11, 2017 by

Search Engine Optimisation is one of the most talked about, searched for, and read about topics for internet entrepreneurs.

Myth 1: SEO is a Scam

Due to the nature of the internet it is very easy for anyone to claim that they are an SEO ‘guru’. This has made many webmasters skeptical of bringing an SEO into their employ for fear of being ripped off, or worse having their site blacklisted from Google.

The Future of Virtual Reality

Conventionally, virtual reality headsets have been incredibly expensive – costing well into the hundreds of pounds. Not only is the headset itself expensive you also need a computer powerful enough to run games smoothly, potentially adding thousands of pounds onto your bill. Unfortunately, this high cost of entry presents a barrier to many people who are looking to get into the world of VR. Fortunately, PlayStation has jumped onto the VR bandwagon with the upcoming release of PlayStation VR – a somewhat more affordable alternative.

Apple Pay

What is it?

Apple Pay for eCommerce websites is here. This month sees the release of macOS Sierra and iOS 10, bringing with it many new features. The most interesting, in our opinion, being the availability of Apple Pay on the web. This opens an interesting new dimension to online shopping and eCommerce. Customers can now order items with the touch of a button by using Touch ID on their iPhone, iPad or Apple Watch. This presents a great opportunity for shop owners that use an eCommerce platform.

Using a UHD 4K TV as a Monitor

4K TV as a Monitor

Web-Feet Hits the Big Screen

With the advent of 4K monitors and TVs, the world now has access to ultra high definition content. For others however, 4K has opened a door to greatly improved productivity. This is especially true for those who rely upon extended screen real estate such as developers. The 4K form factor allows for the equivalent of four full HD (1080P) monitors, that puts most conventional dual screen set-ups to shame. Unfortunately, many PC and monitor manufacturers are yet to adopt this newly found productivity and instead are continuing to produce screens of a more conservative nature, therefore targeting smaller “retina” displays with higher pixel densities. The problem therefore lies with the fact that you cannot comfortably use a 27 inch monitor at ultra HD resolution without scaling.

CloudFlare Page Speed Experiment

CloudFlare Logo

Here at Web-Feet we have recently been experimenting with CloudFlare, a content delivery network (CDN) and domain name server (DNS) provider. CloudFlare offers a number of optimisations such as the ability to asynchronously load all JavaScript based resources to improve load times via RocketScript. Other optimisations include on the fly minification of HTML, JS and CSS resources to reduce the page size of a document. If you then wish for even more optimisations you can opt in for the Pro package which includes a lazy loading like feature known as Mirage, the Polish feature optimises images by stripping out unnecessary metadata and optionally losslessly compressing images.

Thoughts on the Leap Motion Controller

Posted on September 23, 2015 by

We have recently acquired a Leap Motion Controller from Leap Motion, a device that has enabled us to use hand gestures to control various actions on a computer. Such actions include swiping your hand side to side to switch between virtual desktops, and moving your hand up and down to simulate scrolling through windows. We did however find scrolling to be slightly unreliable in that it often prevented us from using other gestures. The Leap Motion also features its very own app store, in which users can download a plethora of different programs from games utilising the Leap Motion’s gesture controls to many different desktop based productivity apps. The Leap Motion also has a rather cool playground app out of the box that shows off some of the motion controller’s best features.
