Marketing Your Website

What's New ?
    Do It Yourself

Many people want to maintain and update their websites themselves. Some are good at it, others are, well lets just say some are good at it. The people that are good at it tend to update regularly and stay with a consistent theme through out their website. Others don't stick to a regular schedule, in some cases it is hard to tell if they have ever updated at all. And then there are the few cases where they not only don't update regularly, but they also seem to want to sabotage their own website.

They use big, bold print with alternating colors, graphics that don't match the look of the site at all and at least six months out of date at all times. Trust me, it happens. Why would they do this? I have come to the conclusion that either they are aesthetically impaired or they wanted the update to stand out so why not make it big and gaudy.

Very few things damage a site more than out of date content but an inconsistent look runs a close second. Combining the worst elements of website maintenance can only lead to one thing, and that is a website that drives visitors away.

If you maintain your own website stay within the boundaries set by the look and feel of the original layout and update your content regularly. A website designer isn't always necessary to maintain your site. It is however important to take the same professional approach.

Password Padding

You can make passwords memorable and secure by using password padding according to Steve Gibson of Gibson Research Corp. (GRC). I will attempt to summarize but please read more about the topic at the Gibson Research Corporation web page.

Since hackers almost always have to "guess" what your password is using dictionary or brute force attacks, padding your password with numbers, capital letters and special characters can make all the difference.

The fastest method tested with the Password “Search Space” Calculator on the GRC site would take only 1.47 seconds to figure out a password like (passamazon), not using the parenthesis. Add a capital letter and some numbers like this (passAmazon78 ) and the time needed increases to 1.04 years. Now try adding some special characters ({*}passAmazon78{*}) and the time needed is 1.28 trillion centuries.

As it states on the GRC website you will need to come up with your own padding formula that makes your passwords easy for you to remember but difficult for hackers to decipher.
