BlogVault In - Termageddon Out

BlogVault In, Termageddon Out

I looked over Termageddon and another competitor and for now I am going to continue creating basic Privacy Policy and Terms of Service pages myself. While I am not an attorney, I care about our website visitors. I found that Termageddon provided very thin and obscure information and that other plugins are overwhelming in their legalese. There are legal criteria for these terms and policies that include notifying users about the information you are...

Analytics

New Website Analytics

The liability landscape for privacy and tracking has been unstable for a while now and will continue to be for some time. As a result, we have had a zero-collection policy for anything that could be identifiable or personal information and have strong notification and agreement protections in place for form submissions. Unfortunately, this left us ditching Google Analytics, and since then, we have been using a plugin with less capability, WP-Statistics. However, that...

Hosting

Hosting & Security

We are moving from GoDaddy hosting to WP Engine Secure WordPress Hosting on a dedicated server. Having a dedicated server means that your website will not share computer hardware space with other websites as it does now. Instead, we will have dedicated resources, and as a result, your website will not experience a slowdown due to the resource usage of your neighbors. We have been using GoDaddy shared hosting since we began, from cPanel,...

Business Listing Updates for 2022

Bing Places and Bing Webmaster tools were hobbled with dysfunction until the middle of this past year and were not available for reliable functionality. Now Bing Webmaster Tools has had a significant facelift and is as useful as Google Search Console for diagnosing potential SEO and performance improvements. We sent emails about looking for your Bing postcard in the mail. The postcard will have a PIN that we need to complete verification to manage...

Email Upgrade

Email Upgrade

We recently upgraded all email accounts from Rackspace Email to Rackspace Email Plus, which allows our clients to use ActiveSync to access their accounts. We did this because some clients had issues adding the email to their device(s) otherwise. This service has the additional benefit of allowing clients to synchronize contacts and calendars on top of email services. Currently, clients also have access to cloud storage and documents, which is where we begin talking...

Privacy Policy and Terms of Service

Privacy & The Law

I could have titled this "The Inconsistency of Online Privacy Law." Unfortunately, that is the problem, we need a clear legal outline that is a matter of steps to follow. However, currently, these laws are all over the place between nations and states, some are so strict they eliminate the possibility of targeted marketing to nonexistent. Up to this point, we have minimized exposure by simply not collecting any personal or identifiable information aside...

The Great Revamp of 2022

Over the next few months, we plan to adopt services and technologies that we have been keeping an eye on since shortly after we began our journey. We have already taken advantage of advancements made by the software vendors that we already work with, such as new features from SiteOrigin that allow us to create an entirely different layout for individual page sections for mobile and desktop devices. We also added visual enhancements such...
