In this video by Google's number one spam cop Matt Cutts, he first denies and then basically confirms straight after that part of Google's algorithm to determine the quality of a page looks at spelling and grammar of the information on the page.
Whether the algorithm actually picks up that the spelling and grammar is incorrect as part of the page rank or if it's in combination with the user engagement of the page and time spent, it's a good reminder to run everything through a quick spell check. Tip: Before publishing your content walk away from the computer for an hour and come back with fresh eyes to proof read if you are worried about there being mistakes.
What are your thoughts on incorrect spelling and Grammar on a site? Does it matter to you?

Sex sells and the sexier you are, the more you sell. It’s been proven in multiple studies. Check out the video above to find out why this is true and the biggest mistake that businesses owners make when getting a website.
Now one scientific study done by Dr. Daniel Hammermesh found that the average good looking person will earn $250,000 more than their less attractive colleagues over time. Again reported in the journal of economic psychology, that good looking people sell more. How does this relate to your website?
Well your website is a salesperson too!
Indeed your website is a salesperson that works 24/7 and the thing is that just like the homosapien type, you can get the hard to manage, slow and poor performing websites that don’t get out there and bring in sales and you can also get the ones that are easy to manage, get out there, flaunt their stuff and bring in more business that you can handle.
We at Think Big Online only build the latter type because we are an online marketing agency and not just web designers. We understand how to build you websites that don’t just look good and converts visitors into phone calls.
Too many web design companies build sites that look good but don’t make sales. We use a proven formula to make you look like a champion and have phone calls, emails and sales pouring in. You see contrary to popular belief, having a site design is not about having the prettiest design or having it at the cheapest price possible. It’s about building a machine that looks good, easy to use, works on mobile devices, search engine friendly and converts visitors to leads and sales.
Now let us share with you the most costly mistake that most people make when getting a site but before we do, we just want you to know about some of the great things that you can expect out of our web design and web development services:
Now you may be wondering, what sort of sites do we actually build? Well we build business websites from small 10 page sites to thousands of pages eCommerce sites and everything in between. What’s more is that we offer a full 30 days tech support to make sure that everything is running smoothly and the site is exactly what you want. If you require any further support, our friendly team are always here to help.
A fair warning - other companies build your site but you don’t have control over it and you can’t move it away from their platform. Best case when you can move it, they’ll slug you with thousands just for the right to take it. We don’t buggerise with shenanigans like these.
we build your site so that you have full control over it and if you decide to move the hosting somewhere else, go for it! We don’t have any fine print or nasty exit fees to move which means that you have 100% control and ownership over you site as well as full training videos and documentation for you to have at your fingertips!
Would you like to discover the fastest way to drive streams of highly targeted buyers to your website in the next 24 hours and have the phone ringing like a smoke alarm in an Aussie barbecue?
Just before I get into that, we want to let you in on a little secret – websites don’t make money. It’s not about the sausage, it’s about the sizzle and it’s not about the website, it’s about the visitors you get to your website.
Now you’ve probably heard of Google Adwords and you know that you can setup a campaign yourself or you can send one of your staff to attend courses on how to effectively run your campaign. We can tell you now that around 96 percent of all people that come to us for Adwords management that have an existing campaign have been doing it wrong and wasting fistful of money every day.
It’s not about how many visitors you get to your website but rather it’s about getting highly targeted leads that will be more likely to buy your product or service. Sure we can send 2 million visitors to your website tomorrow but if no one buys that would be a waste of time and money so we would rather send 200 targeted visitors to your website tomorrow and have 100 of them pick up the phone, send you an e-mail or buy something giving you better returns on your marketing dollar and make more profit.
So how do you get more targeted visitors to actually pick up the phone, e-mail or buy from you? It all starts with tracking and this is where 99 percent of Adwords managers drop the proverbial ball. Think Big Online is the only company in Australia that has developed a state of the art tracking system that tracks every visitor on your website so that you know which types of people actually convert into sales. Once we know this, we start targeting more of these people to increase your return of investment.
Now you may be wondering, why is tracking so important? Well It’s because you can’t improve something that you’re not measuring. If you are running an Adwords campaign and not measuring which keywords and ads turn into phone calls, then you are burning money - money that you could be spending on a holiday in Bali, ski trip to France or a shiny new car.
You see that is where we are different - aside from driving floods of visitors to your website, we track everything so it’s simple for you to see that you are making money on everything we do.
Imagine when you get reports at the end of the month and you can see that for every $1,000 you invest outwards, you get $10,000 back in sales. How many thousands of dollars would you invest? Think Big Online offers you all that and more!

The growing popularity of social networking sites such as Facebook and Twitter is altering the communication model followed by big and small companies when it comes to online marketing. While emails and newsletters were once the buzzword in digital marketing, they seem almost archaic now in comparison to various social media platforms available today.
One digital marketing company that has been quick to perceive the winds of change in this sphere is Trinidad and Tobago based Caribbean Ideas Limited. It recently organized the Caribbean Digital Expo 2011 to get prominent industry players to throw light on the latest trend that is most likely to shape the future of marketing strategy adopted by companies to bolster their online presence.

This platform offers an equal opportunity for small and micro enterprises in the industry as well as the leading market players. Businesses can compete for consumer attention irrespective of the marketing budgets that they have.
In today’s tech savvy world, social media serves as an excellent point of contact for customers. However, this is a dynamic forum and online marketing experts agree that companies need to take maximum advantage of social media platforms by developing a three-line marketing strategy or using multiple formats to stay connected such as making announcements on the official website, posting updates on Facebook, tweeting about promotional offers and sending emails, newsletters and BBM messages.
However, companies need to create specific strategies for the use of various social media sites to increase their customer base and to get a high ROI.

Realizing that customers are more likely to buy products from companies that they feel acquainted with, marketers need to promote their business as well as their merchandise. There is no longer a limit to the availability of information concerning corporate activities.

Social media marketing is more than just throwing an advertisement up in front of a large crowd of people. This strategy is about generating a buzz around a company brand that will attract a crowd and potentially more customers.
This is precisely what is taking place in social media platforms like Facebook. Rather than reaching out to demographics with a sales pitch, successful marketers are creating a Facebook presence and promoting their brand. Once this occurs, the dynamic of the social network does the rest.
The traditional approach to marketing is had evolved with the advent of social media. As people confirm the popularity of a brand or product by becoming a part of a company’s network, more people tend to follow. It is necessary for marketers to utilize this approach to satisfy existing customers and to gain new customers.
