Using Hashtags on Social Media

thread
Using Hashtags on Social Media

What are hashtags?

Let's start there - it is a word or phrase that begins with a hash/pound symbol (#). It is something you have undoubtedly seen, or maybe even used on social media.

But what is it for?

Great question! Hashtags are clickable links that allow one to categorize their content to make it discoverable. If you include a hashtag in your social media post, and somebody sees and clicks it - they will find other posts that also include that hashtag.

Tips for effective hashtag use

  • Make sure your account is public, otherwise people outside of your sphere of followers will not see your posts.

  • Use a mix of very common and more niche/specific hashtags on your posts. If you use only common hashtags, you are going to compete with a TON of other content, use only niche hashtags, and not enough people will ever find your post. Using a blend gives you the right balance, but make sure you...

  • Don’t use too many hashtags. Your posts will come across looking spammy, which isn’t great.

  • Research your hashtags! Twitter will actually show you which hashtags are trending, so if you see something that fits your post - include it. Instagram is a bit different, but if you search for a specific hashtag you can see how many people are using it to help you gauge its effectiveness.

Social media engagement

Why you should use hashtags

Promote your business

Using hashtags allows you to possibly expand who sees your posts. It is a way to get more eyes on your posts/products/content outside of your existing followers.

Increased engagement

When you include a trending hashtag you are actively taking part in a popular conversation. This encourages others to respond to your posts, helping to make them more visible/popular, in turn - getting more eyes on your brand.

Support a cause

The ability to stay connected and help support those that are struggling is so important. Especially in the socially distanced pandemic life that we have all been living. You can use a hashtag to spread awareness and help others.

This is something we are actively doing right now with our Restaurants Are Back promotion. We wanted to support restaurants that are struggling due to the restrictions of Covid-19. One way we are doing this is by offering free and heavily discounted software solutions to restaurants. The other way we are doing this is by spreading awareness through the use of the hashtag #RestaurantsAreBack.
Woman eating pizza
We are encouraging dining enthusiasts to post their dishes, include the hashtag #RestaurantsAreBack, as well as tag and/or mention the name of the restaurant they are getting their food from. Now people can use the hashtag to discover new restaurants and it allows the restaurants to get added exposure and generate more business!

Do you have any questions?

If you have any questions or comments about hashtags, please contact us. And for more information on Restaurants Are Back you can visit our informational site, or search the hashtag on Twitter or Instagram!
If you are using the hashtag #RestaurantsAreBack, share your post with us! We would love to see what delicious food you are eating and shout you out for supporting a good cause!

How to backup your WordPress website

thread
How to backup your WordPre...
Your WordPress website consists of files, images, and a database. Your database contains all of the content within your website. This includes every post, every link, and every comment. If your database gets corrupted, you could lose everything without a backup. Backing up your WordPress website regularly will ensure peace of mind.

Automated WordPress Backup Plugins

To automatically backup your WordPress website, you will need to install a plugin. One highly rated plugin is the UpdraftPlus WordPress Backup Plugin. In your WordPress admin, click on Plugins -> Add New. Under search keyword, type in Updraft.

UpdraftPlus WordPress plugin install


Click Install Now, then Activate. Once activated, you can find UpdraftPlus under Settings -> UpdraftPlus Backups.

UpdraftPlus WordPress settings screen


The first thing you will want to do is to click on the Settings tab and set up your backup schedules. Weekly backups should suffice for most websites. However, if you make frequent daily updates, you may opt for daily backups.

UpdraftPlus WordPress backup selection screen


By default, backups are saved locally for your website. You should choose a remote storage option so your backups are safe from drive crashes. Plus saving backups locally could fill up your disk quota for your website, giving you less space to work with. UpdraftPlus Backups let you choose from a wide selection of remote storage options. Select the option that works for you.

Manual Backups

We recommend that you make a manual backup prior to making a large update to your WordPress website. This way if you make a mistake, or installed a plugin/theme that breaks your website, you can easily revert your changes.

UpdraftPlus WordPress manual backups


Click on Backup Now on the main UpdraftPlus page. If something happens after a large update, and you wish to revert your site to a prior state, select the backup you wish to restore to and click on Restore.

Tip: Upgrading your WordPress version and plugins is critical to maintaining security, but it does come with risks to what it does to your website’s look and functionality. Contact PSPinc if you want help updating your WordPress installation. We will test the upgrade in advance and take a backup of your website before we perform the upgrade.

Keep Your WordPress Install Secure

For complete peace of mind, you should look to securing your WordPress website in addition to making backups. Read our comprehensive article on how to secure your WordPress website for assistance.

PSPinc What’s New Newsletter Vol. 52 "Mail V5"

thread
PSPinc What’s N...

Vol. 52


Dreamersi, the email hosting service of Pacific Software Publishing, Inc., is getting a new mail server. The mail server currently used for dreamersi.com hosting was originally developed as mail hosting software for Windows Server under the code name ST Mail. Since its initial release, it has been upgraded over time.

The next release of our mail software will be a POP/IMAP server developed from scratch by PSPinc on Linux OS. This version has been in development for more than two years. It has been tested and has operated as the mail server for PSPinc for the past year, and bugs have been fixed to make it more complete. We are now ready to release it as dreamersi.com's mail service.

As a multi-domain mail server running on Windows Server, ST Mail  (which we have been using until now) is still several times more powerful than what other companies offer. Our new mail server has proven to have processing power and stability that surpasses it. We will continue to provide more stable services on Dreamersi - we hope you enjoy it!

Email V5 is the current code name, and we are still looking for a product name. If you have a good name, please let us know.

A quick guide to typography for the web

thread
A quick guide to typography fo...
Typography is one of the most important aspects of web design, yet also perhaps one of the most overlooked. Anybody can choose a typeface, but choosing the right typeface and then displaying it correctly can be a crucial step to reaching your users. Here are some tips for enhancing your website’s typography:

Choosing the right typeface.

First of all, yes it’s called a typeface, not a font. Without getting into too many details, Helvetica is a typeface, 18pt Helvetica Light is a font. Moving on. Generally, when choosing a typeface for your website, the choice often comes down to serif vs sans-serif. There’s not necessarily a right or wrong answer here, but some people feel very strongly one way or the other. Recent studies have found that sans-serif may be slightly more readable than serif, but the margin is very slim and ultimately comes down to preference, and what you’re used to reading. Display fonts are fine for headers, but avoid using anything other than a basic serif or sans-serif for your body copy.


Font size and line-height.

The next step is deciding the right size and spacing for your chosen type. These values will need to change based on device type and screen size (see image below), but in regards to font sizing for a desktop the common rule is to choose something in the 16-21px range. Your line spacing (line-height) should be in the range of 130%-170% of your font size. For instance, if you have a font size of 16px, a line-height of 150% would equal 24px.

Font Size

Line Length for maximum readability.

Another important aspect to typography for the web is setting a reasonable line length. There have been many studies on this, which all find that the ideal line length for maximum readability is somewhere in the range of 45-80 characters. This is probably one of the most easily overlooked topics of typography, but critical to retaining user attention. See the image below for examples of various character lengths.

Line length

A couple more things.

Anyone who has ever tried to read yellow text on a white background has experienced the importance of a proper contrast between your type and background color. A general rule is to shoot for a contrast of at least 4.5:1 between type and background, but this varies depending on the weight of your font. Finally, make sure to establish an appropriate visual hierarchy between headers and body copy. This will allow users to scan your content as needed to find what they’re looking for.


If you’d like some help figuring out the perfect way to reach your users by creating a beautiful, easily readable and scannable website, don’t hesitate to reach out. Let our design team help you out with that.

Vol. 51


The industries that have been hit the hardest by the spread of the coronavirus are travel and restaurants. Now that the vaccine is being administered, the number of newly infected people seems to be decreasing a bit. Under such circumstances, travel and restaurant industries are showing some signs of recovery. To support these industries, Pacific Software Publishing, Inc. is launching the Restaurants are Back campaign.

Restaurants are Back is an effort to provide PSPinc developed products to restaurant operators free of charge. PSPinc has been purchasing take-out lunches from local restaurants every day since March of last year for staff coming to the office. We hope to be able to help many more restaurants with this campaign.

If you have a service that you would like to offer, we would be happy to introduce it on our campaign website. For more information, please visit Restaurants Are Back.

Impact of Website SEO with Search Engines: Page Speed

thread
Impact of Website SEO with Se...
Last time we spoke about the impact of keywords on your website SEO. If you didn’t get a chance to read that article, we encourage you to go back and check it out.

Today we are going to discuss the role page speed plays in SEO. Often, people put less value on the page speed of their website compared with the content, keywords, and design. However, if your page loads really slow, it will affect your search ranking.
 

What’s going to happen if my page speed is slow?

Users are looking to get information immediately when they click a link. If the page takes too long to load, they will most likely leave your website. This will increase your “Bounce Rate”, Google may also grade your reputation as bad for lack of usability. Google research in 2018 showed that if your page takes more than 2 seconds to load, the “Bounce Rate” would increase by up to 32%.
 

How can I improve my page speed?



Image file compression

Large file sizes of images make websites load slowly and will cause a negative user experience. Image compression is the process of using compression algorithms to reduce the file size of an image file. There are a number of tools online for compressing images that you can find by searching for ‘online image compressing tools’. Professional programs like Adobe Photoshop are also more than capable of handling advanced image compression.
 

Browser caching

A web browser’s cache is what web browsers use to save data such as images that are needed to view your website. Saving this data allows the browser to load your website faster and more efficiently. When building a website if you define a longer cache for your assets that don’t change frequently, your web browser will store the information longer and further enhance your browser’s loading speed.


Lazy load images

Another solution is to delay loading images using JavaScript. Lazy loading images means you load images on your website asynchronously. After the above-the-fold content is fully loaded, the remaining images will only be loaded when they come into your browser’s viewport. This means that if users don’t scroll all of the ways down, images placed at the bottom of the page won’t be loaded. This lowers the time it takes for your page to initially load

Use fewer images and resource-heavy assets

The more images, videos, and 3rd party scripts/plugins you use, the longer it will take for your page to load. Try to have your website operate as leanly as possible. Using CSS to style text-based buttons instead of relying on images is an example of things you can do to make your site not only more accessible but run faster!

These are just a few tips for making your page load faster. A lot of these are best handled by professional Web Designers & Developers, so don’t be discouraged if these terms seem overly technical. At PSPinc, we have professional Designers and Developers who are knowledgeable of SEO and sophisticated web design! If you need help building a new website or updating an existing one, please let us know. We would love to talk to you about it further!
