You need to change your website content. Doing a search on Google and your website doesn't appear. Looking at your website and there is a lot of content on there however no text that says applicant tracking software, only an image.Look at what people are searching when coming across your website and your competitors. login to your cpanel and look at the visitor stats and traffic. Where are people coming from and what searches are they doing in Google. Pay for adwords for a month to get an idea of what keywords people are using. Look at your competitors websites and see what content they have. If you want to hit the front page of Google content will get you there. No need to spend a lot of money paying someone to do it for you unless you don't have the time. Content is the only thing I do to get my websites on the front page. Another way to get and retain good ranking is news articles. The more high value domains that link back to you the higher your ranking will be. First thing I would do is look at content though. That makes a massive difference!

First, redesign your web pages into SEO friendly. Means add the keywords at the first phrase in the paragraph, heading tags. These are the 2nd and important step which search engines capture.Next, apply meta tags to introduce the website to search engines. What your company name, what you do and what are the keywords best describe your or your company.At last pay for advertising on search engines.

Are you sure it was automatic or client error ? If automatic how do others safeguard from this from happening? Many things break and issues occur when upgrading operating systems, particularly if your business is dependent on older more specialised Windows software.
Hi Marty, I wouldn't recommend rolling back.Could cause even more problems. See if they can try fix the problems they have, that would be best. I have had good and bad feedback from Microsoft Support. Perhaps your friend might want to give them a call to see if they can help. It's very hard to offer any other advice without seeing the computer. Have they got a good backup system in place? I would recommend finding a good technician to help if they are serious about rolling back. Keep in mind Microsoft don't support Windows 7 anymore. Microsoft only provides security updates. I would recommend anyone with Windows 7 that is eligible for the free Windows 10 upgrade, take it up soon as it ends in July.

I haven't even tried :)!! I'm a creature of habit and haven't yet felt the need to upgrade. I've used iOS 7 previously and it's beautiful except I'm still a little confused by it and not high priority.  Maybe you can try downloading at wee hours of the night where not many people are awake - say 3am? or maybe at a time Uni students will be sleeping haha say 6am :)

Assuming you want to continue trading while you make the transition as quickly as possible, I suggest the following steps: 1. Register the new name at ASIC; register domain ​2. Prepare new identity – logo, stationery etc 3. Create interim website – something that will suffice while ongoing development takes place 4. Select change-over date 5. Send out message to customers advising of change 6. Change signage 7. Reopen the following day Hope this helps. On the other hand, if all you want to do is transfer the name and assets of one business to another, register the new name and talk to your accountant.

I really think a good answer to this kind of question requires a "wish list" of the features/processes you would like in an ideal system. Otherwise, all you're likely to get are lots of different opinions from people about systems they like, that may be perfect for their situations, but not so for yours.And then, if there are none out there that people can recommend, or any that meet all your requirements, you can talk to someone like me to help put something together that will meet every single one of your specific needs.

Roland I agree wholeheartedly with Mike Hall's comments about fine wine. There are about 400 different CRM products on the market, which range from simple contact management products such as Act!!! to large enterprise solutions that are highly specialised for one or a few industries and cost several tens of thousands of dollars per person for the licence alone.  Just like with wine, all have their place and their advocates.  Many of them also have people who would not go near them again. However, before asking about specific technologies, if a business wants their project to be successful, they need to invest time in understanding their requirements and being realistic about their budget.  When we look at those projects which fail it is rarely because the incorrect technology was selected, but for much more human reasons, often relating to the scoping of the project. I am a Microsoft Dynamics CRM expert, and I would be happy to talk to any of your clients.  Microsoft is both cloud and on-premise, and is highly configurable.  There are also many overlays and add-ons which add specific functionality.  Given that it works from inside Outlook and leverages other areas of Microsoft Office, it is usually easier for the users to adopt.  From a price perspective it is exceptionally good value for money, not cheap, but immensely good value for functionality delivered.  However, also like wine it needs to be implemented (or served) correctly.  Imagine a cheap wine served in good glasses compared to a really good wine served in paper cups.  The implementation will make or break the project.
