PSPINC What's New Newsletter Vol. 92 "Password Management"

thread
PSPINC What's New Newslette...
At Pacific Software Publishing, Inc. we are developing a state-of-the-art password management system with all of the technology currently available to us. This password management system not only encrypts and stores passwords but also uses 2FA (two-factor authentication) to require authentication with a cellphone when accessing passwords. This way, even if the password for the password management system is exposed, data cannot be seen without authentication using the registered cellphone.

In addition to the single-user system, this password management service that we are currently developing can also manage passwords for groups. Beyond managing individual passwords for a family or a company, you will be able to have passwords that can be shared by the group.

Currently, it is free to use, but we plan to set the price at $20/year per user after the release. It's a cloud-based password manager, so you can view your passwords from any device that can connect to the Internet. How do you manage your passwords? Please register during the free trial period and let us know what you think.

Useful Google Chrome extensions for building a website

thread
Useful Google Chrome extensio...
Every day we surf the Internet we rely on web browsers to serve us content both reliably and quickly. Like all things involving technology, they are constantly evolving and improving. The question is, are you getting the most out of your web browser? If you are not using browser extensions (sometimes referred to as add-ons) you may not be.

What are browser extensions?

A browser extension is a software module that runs within the web browser that customizes that instance of the web browser specifically for you.

Useful extensions for building a website

Today we are going to talk about extensions for Google Chrome, as it is “king of the mountain” when it comes to global market share. However, all major web browsers offer extensions to make your browsing experience easier, more efficient and customized to your needs.

Below is a list of just a few of the useful browser extensions that will help you as you look to build your website. These are helpful not only to Web Development professionals but to savvy business owners that want to go the DIY route (we have a tool for that).

GoFullPage - Full Page Screen Capture
When it comes to building your website, sometimes you may want to capture screenshots of your progress to send to other internal stakeholders. This plugin adds a simple camera icon to your browser. Click the icon once and it will capture the entire page (what you see and what you can’t). From there you can download it in .png, .jpg, or .pdf formats.

Grammarly for Chrome
When it comes to preparing content for your website, it is important you provide professional and well-written content. The Grammarly plugin will look at the text you have written within the browser and point out misspellings and offer grammar suggestions.

Fun fact: We use Grammarly every week when it comes to proofing and editing this blog.

Resolution Test
When it comes to testing your website it’s important you consider your users. People will view your website on all types of devices with different screen resolutions. With this add-on, you can click a button and choose various screen resolutions. It will open a unique browser window for each resolution, allowing you to see how your site looks to those users.



These are just a few browser extensions available through Chrome. There are thousands of extensions for all purposes available in the Chrome Web Store. When it comes to choosing between similar extensions we recommend looking at their rating and how frequently they update to ensure you are using the best of the best.

PSPINC What's New Newsletter Vol. 91 "SEO"

thread
PSPINC What's New Newslette...

At Pacific Software Publishing, Inc. we offer several products and services. Each product or service has a domain name. Each of these domains have unique PR activities to attract visitors. However, this is not enough to attract all of the visitors to one place. So we decided to place all of our products and services on https://pspinc.com.


For example, the service https://clickitaudio.com will continue to operate under its unique domain, but information about the service will be presented at https://www.pspinc.com/click-it-audio. By doing this, we can increase the SEO effect by gathering traffic that was previously distributed among individual products and services and channeling that all into https://pspinc.com.


If you are running multiple sites on multiple domains, modifying your site to attract traffic to a single location will have a synergistic effect on your site's SEO. If you have any questions about SEO, please feel free to contact us.

3 tips for a better mobile website

thread
3 tips for a better mobile webs...

We often spout the virtues of mobile web design. With approximately half of all web traffic being viewed on mobile devices, we cannot afford to ignore the mobile experience of our customers and website visitors.


Below are 3 tips for providing a better mobile web experience for people who are on your website.


#1 Have a well organized mobile navigation


There is nothing worse than being on a mobile device and having to pinch and zoom to click on a link to a pay you wish to visit.


PSPINC site navigation

A fairly traditional approach is to include what is affectionately referred to as a “hamburger menu” in the top corner. Clicking this will then expand out the full navigation with large, clear click areas.


#2 Make sure your site loads fast


Mobile devices are often using cellular data service rather than a super fast wifi signal. The slower your site loads, the more likely they are to click that back button and select a different link.


Make sure you are using images scaled and optimized for the web and try to avoid too many external resource-heavy effects.


Single column site

#3 Create a clean, single-column layout


If you attempt to have multiple column, complex layout on a smartphone - you are not thinking about your mobile users. Anything extending outside of the view space of a mobile device will be cut off and hidden. This forces the user to not only scroll up and down to view your content, but left and right as well.


This is not only unintuitive but it is hugely inconvenient. Ultimately, it is encouraging your users to abandon your site and seek information elsewhere.



When it comes time to refresh or update your website, please consider the mobile web experience. If you have any questions or want us to audit your existing site - please let us know. We have Designers and Developers on staff to help make your mobile experience the best it can be.

PSPINC What's New Newsletter Vol. 90 "Password Management Service"

thread
PSPINC What's New Newslette...
Pacific Software Publishing, Inc. is pleased to announce the free beta release of Pass Wizard, a password management service that has been available in beta since November 4th, 2021. It is free of charge to use, so please try it out. The setup requires user authentication with a cell phone. Also, even if you have access to your account with your login credentials, there are optional security setting enhancements to require authentication with your cell phone to gain access.

The free beta release is a two-user version (admin account and regular user). A great feature of Pass Wizard is that it allows group subscriptions and the ability to share passwords within a group. For example, you can keep your passwords to yourself, but share things like your company's WiFi login, or other shared passwords, with the group to access files or accounts.

I don't want to explain all of the features of Pass Wizard here because you will understand them once you use it. As for the price, we are planning to keep it under $20 per account per year even after the beta. If you would like to try it for free, please click the link below.

Things to consider when deleting web pages

thread
Things to consider when deleti...
Web builder tools like WordPress and WebdeXpress are powerful. They grant website owners the power to make website updates themselves without the need of a Web Developer. As a great man once said - “with great power comes great responsibility.”

Adding or editing content and pages is one thing, but what happens when you need to remove pages from your website? You just press the delete button and poof it's gone - right?

Yes, but did you consider the consequences of removing content?

Remember, SEO (search engine optimization) is based on providing good quality content. Search engines are actively crawling websites and web pages for new content to serve users who make specific searches.

When you remove web pages, you have now removed a valid link to useful content on your website. What this means for users, is they won’t be provided with content relevant to their search. For search engines, they see that you are serving them a broken link, which will hinder your SEO efforts.

What should you do when you need to remove content from your website?

Deleting pages from your website is fine, and inevitable over time as you look to update and make changes. A website is never “finished,” it’s an ongoing and evolving element, like your business itself. To properly remove pages from your website you should set up 301 redirects.

According to Wikipedia, a 301 redirect is defined as follows:

The HTTP response status code 301 Moved Permanently is used for permanent redirecting, meaning that links or records returning this response should be updated. The new URL should be provided in the Location field, included with the response.


To summarize, when you remove a web page, you must update a configuration file on your webserver to ‘permanently redirect’ any traffic that comes to the removed page to a different relevant page. Over time, as search engines continue to crawl your website, they will recognize that a page has been removed, and no longer provide it as a search result.

While the exact format of your redirect will vary from site to site and server to server, the principle will remain the same. You can always consult the Web Developer for your website should you have questions.



If you have a website that needs updating and you don’t know where to start, let us know. We have experience not only in designing and developing websites, but we can help make sure the changes made are SEO-friendly.
