Excerpts from: Do You Make These Mistakes With Your Web Site?

“… no web site is absolutely perfect… But there are some basic web site mistakes …
- Not enough content. - …minimal information along with their contact information on their web sites … today's web visitors are looking for … lots of good quality content … build credibility for your business.
- Old or outdated content. - If you want visitors and search engines to pay attention to your web site, you need to keep adding new content and updating the existing information....
- Not being search engine friendly. - … in order to be included in the search engine databases.
- Not monitoring your site in the search engines. - … Monitoring your web site means that you can react to changes and take appropriate steps to make sure your site shows up in the search results and that web traffic keeps flowing.
- The site is built using Frames or Flash. - Not too many web sites still make this mistake…
Making your web site the best it can be is a very effective and affordable marketing option for most small businesses. Of all the other types of advertising and marketing that you do each year, your web site has the potential to be seen by more customers, can continue to promote your company perpetually through links, is always accessible to customers, and can instantly reflect changes and provide fresh information to draw people in….”

3. Wiki Biased Editing Exposed

Has your company been the victim of derogatory Wikipedia postings?

Says “The credibility of the online encyclopedia Wikipedia has taken another dive after a newly developed software program exposed how the CIA, corporations like Diebold and others routinely edit entries to bury criticism and manipulate the truth . . . Now a CalTech graduate student has developed a software tool that threatens to slam the final nail in the coffin of any credibility Wikipedia had left… Wikipedia Scanner -- the brainchild of CalTech computation and neural-systems graduate student Virgil Griffith -- offers users a searchable database that ties millions of anonymous Wikipedia edits to organizations where those edits apparently originated, by cross-referencing the edits with data on who owns the associated block of internet IP addresses," reports Wired News.”

"The Wikipedia Scanner ( also allows users to type in an IP range and find out which organizations are editing what pages on Wikipedia."

Adds PrisonPlanet: "Though Wikipedia's raison d'etre is obviously based around allowing users to edit the content, the checks to prevent abuse and organized partisan attack campaigns against certain subjects or ideas are non-existent and the absence of any kind of reasonable moderation is destroying Wiki's reputation. ... Wikipedia is fast becoming a complete anathema to reliable research and will see its wavering reputation as a trustworthy source for information quickly evaporate if it continues to allow itself to be abused by intelligence agencies, corporations and dedicated trolls."

Over the past two years we've noted that attempts to put positive postings on Wikipedia about alternative healthcare and natural nutrients has been met with attacks by "Quackwatch" types, even as the "official" Quackwatch sites and founders have been found by courts to be untrustworthy of belief. Will see over the next few months if Wikipedia is capable of reforming itself to regain its credibility.
