Amid the tragedy of the Christchurch Earthquake, I was shocked to find this website. The (clearly un-medicated) owner has hidden their identification but the website is hosted by BlueHost.com. As you can see from my discussion with Blue Host customer support (below), their management have decided not to remove the website and are hiding behind the excuse of needing legal direction from a court before they can do anything. This is clearly unnecessary and the cynic in me thinks that they are hoping to generate some media attention from it. Either that or their company management is utterly spineless.
Christchurch Earthquake list of useful websites and contact phone numbers. I will update this as I gain further information. Please feel free to send me any more links you think may be useful. The Christchurch city centre is inaccessible and the roads should be kept free for essential traffic only. Trains are not running. There is substantial damage to all utility services. Water should be conserved. Much of the phone network is running off battery backup power. If possible, text rather than call to conserve power.
With search engines getting smarter, there are some SEO tricks that should definitely be avoided. I still see websites making use of these and they wonder why they’re not on the front page of Google.Make sure you get good advice from someone who can show you successful websites that they’ve done SEO work on and explain how they did it.
Google Analytics is a free online website statistics service that shows you how viewers found your website, what they looked at and even how they found you. At it’s most basic level, you can check how many visitors your website is getting but it really comes into it’s own in the way that it allows you to see what is working and what isn’t. Simply “counting visitors” doesn’t really tell you much.
