At Amherst Partners we don't believe in hidden fees or charging extra for services we feel are standard, not optional. Our philosophy is that when you hire us to build a website you get a complete website that is ready for both people and the search engines. This article outlines all of the technical and service components that are included in our proposal when we develop a quote. And, since there are always legitimate optional services that can be provided, it also provides a partial list of the additional technologies and services that Amherst Partners can provide.

"The Social, Local and Mobile (SoLoMo) revolution – fueled particularly by the rapid adoption of the tablet -- now dominates the search landscape, according to the newly released Localeze/15miles Fifth Annual comScore Local Search Usage Study. The most significant findings revealed that as consumers rapidly adopt new devices and new methods to access local business information, online local listings are the most relevant and trusted search results. The data was presented today during a special joint SMX West presentation from Localeze, a Neustar service and the trusted business listings identity management provider for local search, and 15miles, a leader in local, mobile and social marketing solutions."

Early last year Amherst Partners established an affiliate relationship with Localeze, a provider of "certified" business data to more than 100 local search providers across the Internet. Since that time, the importance of claiming and maintaining your business data as it appears in these local search providers has continued to increase. With this exponential increase in mobile searches, making certain your business information is accurate couldn't be more important.
Most mobile searches are done with the intention of immediately contacting a business or service being searched for. Think about it, a person that is on the road using their in-vehicle GPS or their smart-phone to search for a business or service is typically looking to visit that business or service within the next few hours - or sooner. If your business information isn't in these local search providers' databases, you loose a potential customer.

Performing regular periodic backups of your critical data is probably one of the most important things you can do to protect yourself against disaster. It is also an activity that is commonly overlooked, postponed, or simply ignored. There are also cases where a backup procedure and capability is in place but not operating correctly due to oversight or lack of time.
Amherst Partners is pleased to announce that we are partnering with Carroll-Net, Inc. to offer their Healthy Server backup solution. This service is not limited to our existing clients. Anyone can take advantage of this service.

You may, or may not, have heard about the Protect-IP (PIPA) and the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) currently under consideration in Congress. If passed, one of the many things SOPA requires is that Web hosting companies police websites in order to prevent them from communicating copyrighted information on the Internet. Consequently, I would like to take this opportunity make sure you are aware of Amherst Partner's position on SOPA.

Every year around the holidays as both brick & mortar and online sales increase so does the occurrence of various online scams. I've probably received at least 2 dozen scam email messages over the past few weeks informing me about my winning free items of all sorts - all I have to do is "click here" to receive my prize. Have you ever heard the saying - if it sounds too good to be true it usually is? Well this is most certainly the case here - DON'T click on any of those links - 99.9% of the time they are scams.
