  • Why nothing is important online

    Posted on January 16, 2018

    With today being Nothing Day, it’s the perfect opportunity to do something that some people might say I do very well – talk about nothing. But this is a bit different. I don’t mean that I’m going to talk about no specific thing. Instead I’m going to talk specifically about nothing. The concept of nothing, […]

  • Has the internet killed satire?

    Posted on November 25, 2016

    I love a good bit of satire. Whether it’s old episodes of Spitting Image, Aristophanes’ ‘The Frogs’ or a bit of the Daily Mash – nothing beats good satire. The problem is, does satire remain as satire when too many people believe it? For instance, the spoof news website BFN was originally set up with […]

  • So you think you don’t need a website?

    Posted on August 26, 2016

    Before I start this post, I must first apologise for the vitriol that is about to spew forth. John, our Content Team Leader, will have attempted to edit much of the hatred and anger from this but, if he’s caught all of it, the word count won’t be sufficient for a blog and you won’t […]

    You may have heard the phrase ‘what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas’ at some point in your life. The phrase refers to Las Vegas, the gambling capital of the world, which is also known as Sin City. The notion that what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas means that you’re guaranteed anonymity by the […]

  • Three search terms that rocket on Fridays

    Posted on January 12, 2018

    Today is Friday, and that means we often do things differently. You might be someone for whom the arrival of the weekend means getting ready to go out and party, or maybe you’d rather settle down to an evening of A Question of Sport and Would I Lie to You? In either case, your behaviour […]

  • Eight facts about Google for its 20th year

    Posted on January 4, 2018

    Google, the go-to search engine and provider of all kinds of high-tech services we couldn’t do without, was founded in September 1998. Now that the calendars have turned to 2018, it means that the Californian superpower will celebrate its 20th birthday later this year.

    Posted on August 30, 2013

    In a world saturated with adverts, stories and statistics, and with the internet only a mere click away, there is a real danger of consumers being overloaded – trawling through so much information can be monotonous. A well-designed infographic, however, can set companies apart from their competitors and should also enhance brand awareness. So many […]

    An action-packed July for the Engage Web team came to an adrenaline-pumping end last Thursday when we made the trip to Snowdonia.
