Phil Whitting – FalTech GPS

    My main issue will be supply (importing from Finland mainly) so Brexit may affect lead times, customs fees and exchange rates. Not a lot to be done until the new year starts, and we see how it pans out, but a couple of friends of mine in similar situations are bulk-buying in December. I will do the same in a more modest way, so at least I can…[Read more]

  • I attended a webinar through FSB, called “Quick, Free & Simple SEO Wins for Your Small Business”.
    It was presented by someone from http://www.hikeseo.co, they have a useful explainer video on their home page.

    Very interesting, as all the same aspects of SEO that we are familiar with were covered, and Hike SEO have managed to automate that process to a…[Read more]

    • Thank you for sharing this, Phil. SEO is a big subject, isn’t it. On the one hand, it helps if you understand the technical side of it. However, the big issue is finding the time to write on a regular basis.

  • Hi Nigel,
    I have been approached with an offer to buy the domain name faltech.com

    As you know FalTech Ltd is the company legal name, and I trade as FalTech GPS,
    Is there any benefit in buying this, if only to prevent someone else from using it?

    Price is obviously a factor, I don’t know what they want for it yet.

    The offer came from a HK-based…[Read more]

    • I suggest that you ask what the price would be, Phil. It could be virtually anything. If the price is reasonable, then, yes, I think that you should purchase it – because this would help to protect your brand name.

  • Hi Nigel,
    I am planning to write a blog post for my website, detailing a new product that I think will go down well in the GPS community. I can take care of the blog post quite easily; my question is how best to promote it via LinkedIn.
    In the past I have created a short headline and linked to the blog post, so that readers can click through to…[Read more]

    • Thanks for asking this, Phil. Think of it from the customer’s perspective. If you were in their shoes, what would catch your eye? Given that Faltech GPS are specialists in the provision of GPS satellite signals inside any indoor space where they wouldn’t normally be available – if the new product is something to do with this – then I would talk a…[Read more]

    Nigel, in yesterday’s excellent SEO session, you mentioned how to get yourself a Google snippet. Are you able to elucidate please?

    • Hi Phil, To start with, choose a keyword phrase which generates a question type search query. Search for it. If you find a Google Featured Snippet, click through and make a note of what they have done on their page.
      Look at the results in the “People also ask” box, as this is helpful.
      Oh, and it helps if your page is position 1 on Google. 🙂

    Known Yoast issue – I wrote this note to my web hosting company:

    I just noticed something different – the SEO and readability traffic lights can still be seen in page list view, but when in page edit mode there is no SEO status box on the right hand side bar.

    You can still see the status on the tabs when scrolling down the page; has there been…[Read more]

    After much faffing about I came to the conclusion that Yoast sees the world through a different set of lenses than Google,
    With this in mind, I take hints from Yoast but don’t always treat what is says in a black-and-white, right-or-wrong way.

    If it says “you don’t have your keyword in an H2 heading” I would take that seriously.
    The advice about…[Read more]

    Thanks Nigel, I’m glad I’m not alone in the tabs struggle – is this a commonly known issue in the WP/Yoast/Google/SEO community?

  • Phil Whitting – FalTech GPS posted a new activity comment 3 months ago

    Timely – I have ground my teeth down to stumps these last 2 days while updating pages on my site.
    Yoast in particular is causing some angst.
    I have one particular page that was “awarded” green lights for readability and SEO by Yoast.
    Then I introduced some tabs using a built-in shortcode called SU-TABS – this serves to sort the information horizon…[Read more]

    Google just credited my Ads account with a £65 goodwill gesture.

    “We know that businesses of all sizes have been facing unique challenges as a result of COVID-19, and we also understand that many of these businesses continue to rely on Google Ads to help them reach their customers As a gesture of support, we’ve funded eligible accounts with an ad…[Read more]

    • Yes, I received the same message (although I do not use AdWords, but I have an account). Every little helps….

  • Hi Nigel,
    After starting the process of reducing the amount of capital letters on my web pages, I am looking at the overall design of the solutions pages in particular.
    Most have simple line drawings, but I am wondering if the pages should be updated with more “real-life” pictures (as well as, or in addition to) the sketches.
    Here’s an example…[Read more]

    • Hi Phil, Yes, I like the idea of product photographs on their own and also photographs showing the product in use. The latter could be taken at the time of installation or it might be possible to ask some friendly customers to do this for you.
      It would be helpful to have an everyday object, such as a biro, placed alongside the…[Read more]

    You’re welcome Chris, always happy to (chocolate) chip in where I can hopefully add a little to the proceedings.

    I’ll get my coat…..

    Roy, was that with STC at New Southgate? I was there with Nortel, the STC successor, approx ’99 – ’02. Great campus, with Canada geese everywhere (Nortel was HQ’d in Canada)

    Great minds think alike, I did just that,
    Thanks

    Broken link test run last night – no broken links.
    Product page deleted
    Menu link deleted

    There is a blog post that links (linked) internally to the removed page, and of course that link doesn’t work any more.

    There’s a local company that my wife has shares in (well, she should have!) called Trenance Chocolates.
    Not fudge, I know, but their packaging is very nice – simple but effective.
    https://www.trenancechocolate.co.uk/Shop/Boxed_Chocolates

    Might be useful for reference.

  • Good idea, thanks Nigel,
    It’s not like I have a gazillion pages, so that method would work.

  • Hi Chris,
    I wondered if your fudge is available in “corporate gift” format.
    I recently saw an article about Hotel Chocolat getting a deal to supply premium choccies in nice packaging for some corporate entity or other, possibly in the conferencing industry.
    Maybe fudge is a little more “rustic” than fine chocolate, so would appeal to a different…[Read more]

  • Nigel, I need to delete a web page that refers to a soon-to-be obsolete product.
    I’m sure there are a few other pages within the site that link to the page due to be deleted.
    Does WP have a tool that lists all incoming links to a product page?
    Thank you
    Phil

  • And here’s one what I tweaked https://www.gps-repeaters.com/solutions/gps-l1-repeater-kits/

    So I’ll be working my way through and changing a few pages to get the best effect, then possibly changing the style sheet so that the effect becomes global, i.e. all pages similarly affected.
