Finding The Right Search Engine Optimization (SEO) Company

Over 90 percent of all web surfers use search engines to find what they are looking for. If visitors are not finding your site, you may need search engine optimization (SEO) – whether you hire a company or do it yourself.

Keeping a website at the top of the search engines has become a science. The best search engines frequently modify the way their databases list websites, and constantly change the search criteria used to find and present web pages.

You may have already been approached by SEO companies promising #1 rankings and instant success. How do you know which company to believe and which are not being upfront?

Tip Of The Month

Saving Images in Different Formats

If you have an image in a TIFF format and want to save it as a JPEG, or maybe you have a BMP and you want to turn it into a GIF, the process is usually very easy.

First, open the original image in your favourite imaging program. Now click on the File Menu, Save As. Most programs will have a drop box full of various formats you can save your file as. Simply pick the one you want - with one exception—GIFs.

GIF files are not the best format for saving actual photographs, but it works great for images like screen shots and drawings. In some programs, you can just directly save as a GIF, in others, you'll need to choose to Export, As GIF. Still others want you to "Save for web" (Photoshop CS, for instance). Regardless, you'll find that many programs just don't have GIF as an option to "Save As", so you may need to hunt around for it a bit (still should be under the File menu).

If your program is really picky, you may even need to convert the image mode to "Index Color" before you can save it. There's usually an option for "Mode" or "Image Mode" under an Image or Edit menu.

Now, if you’re going from a GIF to another format, you may be faced with the reverse problem—you can't directly save the GIF as a JPEG for instance. In this case, going to that Image Mode menu is your solution. Just change from Index Color to RGB and you'll be all set.

"We wish to thank Sue Chepelsky (aka Sue Studios) for her artistic talents in creating our website. Sue has been patient with our procrastination, while quickly responding to all of our requests and questions. With her experienced suggestions and attention to detail, we have watched our website metamorphasize from photos and scribbled notes to a website that we have received many compliments on.

We are planning yet another website and look forward to having Sue work her magic on this one as well. We definately recommend Sue and her abilities for any website, be it large or small, be it new, or for updating an old one.

Congratulations on your award Sue, much earned and well deserved!"
