    Posted on November 20, 2017

    As part of its latest move, microblogging site Twitter has suggested that it is in the process of reviewing its authentication system, and as a result could

  • Is social media changing our brains?

    Posted on November 17, 2017

    There’s no doubt that sites like Facebook and Twitter have revolutionised the way we communicate, but is social media actually making us think differently, and changing the dynamics of our minds? Two recent articles have suggested that the big two social media sites are creating challenges for our brains, forcing them to alter the way […]

  • Does Google hate WordPress websites?

    Posted on November 16, 2017

    Last week, I received a call from a lady who was concerned about the performance of her website. It was an ecommerce website, and she wasn’t receiving as many orders as she would have liked, nor as many as one of her competitors who she

  • Three bizarre things Facebook has banned

    Posted on November 15, 2017

    Facebook, considering the power and authority it has in today’s world, is not always great at making decisions. A classic case of this was picked up on by almost every major newspaper earlier this week, with artist Jackie Charley bafflingly having her festive painting of a robin blocked by the social media site for its […]

  • 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 […]

  • What happens online stays online

    Posted on March 11, 2016

    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 […]

  • How did our favourite websites get their names?

    Posted on October 18, 2017

    For many of us, a day doesn’t go by where we don’t visit one of our beloved search engines or social media sites, and their names have therefore become second nature to us, but it wasn’t always that way. Until not long ago, I had

  • Is Bing becoming a serious rival for Google?

    Posted on October 4, 2017

    Google has become so synonymous with internet searches that we often use the word as a verb (though Google would rather we didn’t), but there are signs that its Microsoft-owned competitor is gaining ground on the California

  • Brew Cards Infographic, updated rules

    Posted on October 22, 2014

    Two years ago we produced our first ‘brew cards’ infographic, to help explain the complex rules we have here at Engage Web for brew making in the office. Over time our rules have evolved and grown, partly to make the selection process more exciting and partly to counter for the rule-bending shown by our project […]

  • The growing importance of infographics

    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 […]

  • Content Engagement Infographic – how people engage with your website

    Posted on August 12, 2013

    As a result of the many different ways people can engage with your website we decided to produce this (slightly disturbing) infographic showing how your website can stimulate the ‘share cortex’ of the brain. Social media is such an important part of Internet marketing these days you need to take advantage of it to make […]

  • The zips don’t lie – Engage Web Team Building Day 2017

    Posted on July 31, 2017

    An action-packed July for the Engage Web team came to an adrenaline-pumping end last Thursday when we made the trip to Snowdonia. After last year’s impressive performance from the team at Escape Rooms, an altogether different team building challenge this year would be whooshing (or dangling) over some breathtaking North Wales landscapes at Zip World.

  • Why I’ve signed up for Prostate Cancer UK’s March for Men

    Posted on March 31, 2017

    I’m not sure whether I’m classed as ‘Generation Y’ or a millennial, but it’s fair to say that people like me who were born in the early to mid-1980s get a fair bit of criticism, and those who are a bit younger perhaps even
