Horsham Bikes

“My skill set does not include building websites, so it was really good to be able to brief Horsham Web Design on what I wanted, and have him produce what I needed. With regular consultations and some training on how to use my site, I am very happy. Many people have complimented the look and functionality of the site. The service that Web Design Horsham offers is good value, personal and I believe a “must have” for any business. Oh, and he also got me an awesome domain name!!” Simon – www.HorshamBikes.co.uk

Guy Sherlock Photography – Horsham Wedding Photographer

The brief was to create a new image for Horsham Wedding Photographer, Guy Sherlock. It needed to be crisp, clean and contemporary and be able to demonstrate his awesome photographic skills. In addition the site needed to achieve a first page ranking for the keywords wedding photographer horsham and wedding photography horsham. In addition the keywords family portrait photography horsham and family portrait photographer horsham needed to land on the front page.

Although the site is far from complete it is already on the Google’s front page for all the above keywords.

Outrage over app that trawls Facebook for ‘sexy pics’

Badabing, a £1.49 iPhone app lets users find and share pictures of friends in skimpy outfits, has been criticised as ‘intrusive and unnecessary’.

A new iPhone app that crawls through your Facebook friends’ pictures to find pictures of them in skimpy outfits has sparked concern among civil liberties groups and internet users.

The Badabing! app uses object detection technology to identify pictures of friends in revealing outfits, then lists them as thumbnails, allowing users to bookmark and share their favourites.

The service is currently only available for iPhone, at a cost of £1.49, but a statement on the website says that the company is “still working” on a web app.

Billing itself as “The only social image recognition app”, Badabing!’s homepage states that it helps you find your friends’ “sexy pics” in seconds.

Civil liberties campaign group Big Brother Watch said that the app was “intrusive” and highlighted the risks of uploading photos and information to the internet.

In addition 88% of the self-generated, sexually explicit online images and videos of young people their analysts encountered had been taken from their original location and uploaded onto other websites.

Young people may lose control over their images and videos once they are uploaded

88% of the self-generated, sexually explicit online images and videos of young people their analysts encountered had been taken from their original location and uploaded onto other websites.

The study, which was carried out using data collected throughout September 2012 by IWF Internet Content Analysts, aimed to establish a snapshot of how many self-generated, sexually explicit images and videos of young people there are online.

It also sought to discover how much of this content was copied from its original source and put on other websites.

In less than 48 working hours, IWF analysts encountered more than 12,000 such images and videos spread over 68 websites.

Most of the images and videos (88%) appeared on ‘parasite websites’, meaning they were taken from the original area where they were uploaded and made public on other websites.

These parasite websites had often been created for the sole purpose of offering sexually explicit images and videos of young people and therefore contained large amounts of sexually explicit content.

On yer bike!

Simon asked if I could build him a new site for his bike servicing and repair business. No problem but what about a better domain name? After a few minutes searching and much discussion later, the HorshamBikes.co.uk domain was secured and the business name changed to match. Hard to believe it was available!

No 1 on Google

The owner of Primaveris gave me the “simple” brief to get them on the first page of Google. It took a lot of hard work but as the MD said ” I can’t believe it! You got us there in just two months, amazing!”

You know you can have a great looking website and pay a lot of money for it but what’s the point if no-one can find you?
