• Some websites just cannot be optimised for Google

    Posted on January 18, 2019

    I spoke with someone recently who wanted to achieve more from their website. They’ve had site for almost two years, but over that time have received very little from it in

  • Why spelling mistakes sell you short

    Posted on January 17, 2019

    In business, no matter how good your product or service might be, nothing lets it down like poor spelling and grammar. To illustrate this, when you receive one of those phishing emails telling you to pay your TV licence, provide your details to your bank or settle your outstanding Netflix bill, what tends to be […]

    Posted on January 16, 2019

    The record for the most-liked post of all time on social media site Instagram has recently been broken, with reality star Kylie Jenner’s previous total being surpassed. When you think of what

  • Three search terms that peak in January

    Posted on January 15, 2019

    Once Christmas and New Year have come and gone, January can feel like a month where not a lot happens. Clearly, though, there are certain subjects on our minds at this time of year, and a look at Google Trends suggests that some industries should be aware of what’s going on in the world of […]

  • What motivates you to get out of bed in the morning?

    Posted on June 8, 2018

    At a recent networking event, I gave a talk about discovering ‘why’ people do what they do with regards to business. This is something I’ve been thinking a lot about over the

  • 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 can we learn from the new most retweeted tweet?

    Posted on January 9, 2019

    When American teenager Carter Wilkerson achieved the goal of getting the most retweets ever for his 2017 tweet attempting to get a year’s supply of chicken nuggets from Wendy’s, it could have been seen as either a romantic story, or a sign of how dull and brainless social media can sometimes be. I saw it […]

  • Sudan the latest African nation to block social media

    Posted on January 8, 2019

    The last six to eight months have seen several countries in Africa impose restrictions on social media and the internet, usually in an effort to curtail protests and criticism. The most recent of these is Sudan, where the last few weeks have seen regular demonstrations against long-serving president Omar al-Bashir. With politicians in the East […]

  • What did the UK search for on Christmas Day?

    Posted on January 3, 2019

    Christmas is the one day that almost all of us spend indoors, and although it should be a time for socialising and spreading goodwill, it’s perhaps not surprising that many Brits end up on their computer or smartphone. A bit of yuletide Googling is becoming as much of a UK December 25th tradition as the […]

  • 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 […]

    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 […]

    Yesterday morning had a sense of ‘back to reality’ for many people, who woke up to an overcast, drizzly start to the day for the first time in weeks, coupled with the realisation that England had gone out of the World Cup, albeit a bit later than they usually do. For the team at Engage […]

    Yesterday, some of us at Engage Web attended the European Search Conference 2018. Held at the Exhibition Centre Liverpool and forming part of the city’s International Business Festival, the event goes some way to replacing SAScon, which was held for the last time in Manchester last year. The event was certainly well staged – probably […]
