A+ | iNet+ | Master CIW Designer

Hi, I'm Chris your instructor.

Certified in  A+, i-Net+ and having acquired my Master CIW Designer designation I love the InternetWebsite Design, SEO, Social Media, Product Photography and Video Productions—are all part of what I do.

I have been building websites for business owners for over 10 years.  I now specialize in WordPress Development.

Search Engine Optimization should be part of everyone's tool-set. SEO needs to be considered in any project at the design stage. SEO has changed a lot over the past 15 years. The Google 'Panda' update in 2011 and 'Penguin' in 2012 made major improvements to search results. Now it is becoming more about authorship and social media interactions. With the recent 'Possum' update in 2016 to the 'Pigeon' algorithm, Google is providing a more accurate local search.

I believe the internet will continue to grow in the direction of information shared by all for the benefit of all.  I love teaching and I am presently working on my CTT+ (certified technical trainer) designation.
