    Beware Emails Asking for Payments!

    Scammers have now moved away from sending emails from Nigerian Princes saying they need to move their money abroad. Now they are impersonating peoples Bosses, Wife’s, Husbands or Friends.Beware Emails Requesting Money

    The scammers do a lot of research to make sure the email looks identical to the company’s normal emails and they either fake the email headers or change the email address by substituting a couple of letters (e.g. yourboss@gmail.com to yourboss@gmali.com) so its actually appears to be from them.

    They then say something along the lines that they need to get an urgent payment to a new supplier or the company will loose a big contract. The Employee then sends the money not wanting to question their boss, and all is ok until they are fired for loosing their company’s money.

    There is also a similar email scam where companies are emailed supposedly from one of their suppliers saying their bank details have changed, and all future payments should go to their new bank details. As i am sure you can guess the email is from a scammer and the bank details are theirs and not your suppliers.

    If you ever get an email out of the blue asking for an urgent payment or someone saying their bank details had changed, you should always phone them first on a number you trust (not one in the email) and check that the email is genuine. As its better to appear over zealous than loosing your employers or your own money.

    The BBC have recently done an article talking about these scams, click the below link to check out the full article.

    Why Your Web Sites Speed Matters

    The BBC have released a very interesting article based on the research from Dynatrace.

    Website speed

    The article states that “A page load time of 2.5 seconds or below strikes the right balance between functionality and speed.” and any movement above 3 seconds then has a relative quantitative effect of the number of customers leaving the website.

    According to the research website are actually getting slower, rather than quicker. This is due to amount of interactivity, images and videos that are now a requisite of the modern web site. But one of the biggest speed killers is the number of external connections / data sources / websites that are being integrated into websites. e.g. connections to Google, Facebook and Twitter.

    How can i block Google Analytics from my PC?

    If you are using Google Analytics on your website then you will want to know whether the visitors being counted are genuine external visitors to your site or if you and your colleagues are being included in the count. This can be especially important if you frequently visit your own site for updates, fill in forms, update databases etc.

    But luckily Google have made it fairly straight forward to block visits being counted from selected machines or networksHow can i block Google Analytics from my PC?.

    1) I have a fixed “static” IP address!

    If you have a static IP address then it is quite straight forward to block your PC from registering your visits you just need to setup a filter within Google Analytics.

    • login to your Google Analytics account.
    • Click Admin on the top right of the screen.
    • You will now see a list of your accounts, select the account you want to block.
    • Select the “filters” TAB.
    • Click “Add New”.
    • You will now see the below form
      • Enter a name.
      • Select “pre defined”.
      • Select “exclude”.
      • Select “traffic from the IP addresses”.
      • Select “that are equal to”.
      • Enter the your external IP address
    • Google Analytics FilterClick Save.
    • Thats it….

    Note this will block all machines that register as using the selected IP Address externally e.g. it will block all machines on your internal network.

    2 ) I don’t have a fixed “static” IP address!

    If you don’t have a static ip address you can download an add on from Google for your web browser, this will have the effect of blocking all your visits.  Note this is a universal tool so it will block all your visits to all sites using Google Analytics and not just your own. It is available for Microsoft Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Apple Safari and Opera.

    Can content be duplicated across Twitter and Facebook? 

    Can content be duplicated across social networks?

    Typically duplicating content is not a problem as most people will only actively use one network, but you should not only post duplicate content. Having said that the content on twitter should be an abbreviated version of the Facebook content as you are limited to 140 characters.

    With twitter you can/should repeat content as people normally view their twitter content on a constantly scrolling screen so they may not even see your post unless it is repeated.

    Facebook content should not be duplicated.

    If someone comments on your post on Facebook or twitter always try to reply, even if it’s just an acknowledgment.
