Microsoft is celebrating the death of version 6 of its Internet Explorer web browser by baking a cake. As usage levels in the US drop to below 1% and that trend mirrored in UK and Europe, we can finally celebrate the end of what some have rated as the worst technology product of all time.
From the user’s perspective, using IE6 to browse the web leaves a computer vulnerable to viruses and malware that steal personal data etc. From a web developer’s point of view, IE6 often interprets a web page coded to industry standards differently from other browsers which means a lot of messy additional layout code and extra testing to ensure a web page displays correctly.
The only country bucking this trend is China where usage levels are falling but still around 25%.
Unlike only a few years ago when IE was dominant, there are now three main browsers that your websites should be compatible:
The market is moving to a position where no one browser is dominant, however the good news is that, apart from a few quirks with IE7, they tend to work the same way and no major adjustments are needed to get proper cross-browser compatibility for a website.
Everyone wants their website to rank higher on Google. By appearing higher up the Search Engine Results Pages (SERPS), your website will get more visitors and you will generate more business.
Potentially it’s a massive subject, but we have boiled the process down into the key steps:
Step 1 – Research
We’re not advocating months of exhaustive analysis of market trends and positioning but whatever your business size, you should be able to answer these questions:
- How many visitors does my website get?
- How many orders or enquiries does my website generate?
- What keywords should people use to find my website, are there more popular alternatives?
- What are my competitors doing regarding their website, social media, email newsletter and other advertising?
- Where am I looking for new customers, are they local, national, international, do they enquire or look for your services at certain times e.g. office hours, evenings, weekends etc?
Google provides a number of free tools such Google Analytics, Google Webmaster Tools and Google Keyword selector tool to help analyse your own website. You should also look closely at what your competitors are up to: what they are doing well, how they are ranking for certain key phrases, are they using Google AdWords, other advertising etc.
This vital first step helps you prioritise and identify what to do next – Action!
Step 2 – Action
The Actions you take should be informed and shaped by what you find out in the Research step, but could include the following:
The final choice of Actions will be dependent on your business, your budget and time.
Step 3 – Check
Is what you’ve done working? Check all your available data, website traffic, number of orders, number of enquiries, website position in SERPS etc. Use that information to adjust your actions and research further relevant options for boosting your website.
