The Internet holds a plethora of information for just about anything that you seek.  However, sometimes actually finding the desired information can be a challenge.  Below are some popular techniques for actually digging into search engines and finding the information you desire.

These techniques are usually the same for all search engines, but some may use different more, or less, advanced techniques. If in doubt, click on the link for Help or for the Advanced Search on the search engine’s main page to determine what your usage options are for that particular search engine.

When we started Connect 2 Clubs two years ago we had the intention of growing our “Connect 2” family of offerings within the first six months.  Well, Connect 2 Clubs exploded and we got a lot more business than we expected.  This is a good thing! 

We added Connect 2 Kin, websites for families, about a year ago. 

Now we’re proud to welcome Connect 2 Websites to our family.  Connect 2 Websites focuses on the online marketing needs of small businesses.  According to recent statistics 82% of consumers that are searching for a particular local business will start that search in the Internet.  Another astonishing statistic is that only 44% of small businesses have websites.

Your website would be pretty dull without images or illustrations.  Finding the right images can sometimes be a daunting task.  Many people think that they can just surf the web and find photos or graphics and then do a quick “right click” to copy and save the image.  Their thinking is that if the graphic is already on the web, it’s probably “free game” for anyone to use.  WRONG! 

The Internet is full of photos and they may seem to be freely available, but mostly it is illegal and unethical to copy and reuse these photos.

If you were to open, say, ten websites at random you’d see ten different layout patterns and probably three times that many font sizes and styles. 

Perhaps the most uncomplicated way to make any page easier to read is by using your keyboard.  If you press Ctrl and the + (plus) and - (minus) keys, the size of text and usually images on the page will increase and decrease. If you are browsing by mouse, press Ctrl and spin the scroll wheel back and forth to change the size of a web page's elements. There are also zoom-in and zoom-out options on the View menu in Firefox, IE, and Opera, and on Chrome's Tools menu.

If you want to view a page in full screen mode, simply press F11 or select ‘Full Screen’ from the ‘View’ menu, within your browser. Press F11 again to return to the normal view. In Chrome, select the Tools icon in the top-right corner to choose the Full Screen mode.

We live in a rural area on a beautiful lake in central Texas.  Our electricity, phone and internet services are provided by somewhat large regional companies, but our water comes from a very small company in northern Texas.  We’ve had no complaints with them other than the fact that they don’t have a website!!!  Whenever we need to contact them for anything we have to shuffle through scads of old bills just to find their phone number.  It’s hard to believe in today’s competitive business world that any business that expects to stay in business would NOT have a website.  Sheesh!

Well, this got me to thinking about small businesses and the importance that a website plays in their growth and success.  Our Connect 2 Clubs website is like a member of the family.  We check its vital statistics (number of hits, rank, page popularity, etc.) daily.   Of course, we’re in the website business and get most of our clients via the web.  But, other small businesses need to realize that if they don't have a professional website, they are missing out on exposure and sales. Furthermore, even with a great website, if they don't know how to promote it, they will still miss out on business.

There are two basic steps to getting your site online. Purchasing and registering/reserving a domain name is the first.

A domain name makes up the address of your site and can end in .com, .net, .org, .info, .us, .biz, .tv and more.

Once you have registered your name, you will select a web host (2nd step). Connect 2 Clubs is a web host. Your web host is the the home location of any website, because this is where you create and publish your pages and essentially "park" your website.
