Week 63 @ywd tweets weekly roundup
This past week: At YWD we completed a lot of upgrades and introduce a few new features - all to help our clients succeed online. As you may know we are constantly evaluating the new technologies and trends out there so we can integrate them into your YWD website. One example is Mobile Website, not only does it come (out the box) with every YWD website, but I believe it is the best mobile website solution out there. One great feature is that in YWD both Mobile and Desktop websites run under the same URL/Address, helping the SEO for both, another great feature is the image resizing for mobile displays (mentioned below in a tweet), you don’t have to maintain two sets of images anymore. Those great pictures you add to your website will display well on a mobile device because they will be resized on the fly to fit the viewer screen. Getting back to this week’s collection of tweets, I gathered the best tweets from this week that I think have great content to help the small business move ahead in the online world.
