  • Three ways Bing still misses the beat

    Posted on December 7, 2018

    It’s very cool to dislike Microsoft these days. Among web developers and general internet addicts, the company is often seen as a ‘hanger-on’ that has outlived its usefulness. While Bill Gates’ empire once changed the interface of computing by moving us from dull black DOS backgrounds and cryptic commands, to the highly visual Windows interface, […]

  • 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 […]

    As was noted in a recent blog by our Technical Director Darren, there are plenty of ways in which social media posts from years ago can come back to bite people, and many employers are now reviewing applicants’ Facebook, Twitter and Instagram accounts before offering them a job. The world of football, which is always […]

  • 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 […]

    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.
