Reflections on Using Google AdWords

I've just written a brief introduction and description of our experience of using Google Adwords and added it to our site.

We've been using both Google AdWords and Google AdSense on several projects over the past few years and it seemed a good time to distill the insights and understanding we've gained through using them.

  • AdWords is the bit where you pay Google to display your ads.
  • AdSense is the bit where Google pays you to display their ads.

As with all Google offerings they are both deceptively simple to use, and exceptionally tricky to master. Both require ongoing work to optimise their use and monitor their performance and to make sure that they are giving you what you need.

New Website For Osmington Village Hall

We’re pleased to announce that we have just launched a NEW website for Osmington Village Hall. Osmington Village Hall came to us needing a brand new website as the old one had been taken offline. We built the website from the ground up taking a fresh new approach alongside Osmington Village Hall.

Relaunch Of Weymouth And Portland Info Website

We’re excited to announce that we have relaunched the Weymouth and Portland Information website. The website is an internal project of ours and one that’s needed attention for a while. The main aim of the redesign was to make the website responsive and easier for users to navigate around.

New Website For R-em Therapies

We have just launched a new website for Emma at R-EM Therapies. R-EM Therapies is a new client of Alacrify’s that we’ve thoroughly enjoyed working with. R-EM came to us needing a new website as the old site was starting to show its age. The old site also wasn’t responsive and was also unsecure which negatively impacted the site's search engine rankings as well as being hard for users to access on their mobiles and tablets.

New Website For Ecs Special Projects

We have just launched a new website for ECS Special Projects. This is another website of ours that we originally built many years ago. The old site stood the test of time and still performed very well in Google searches, but the time had come for the look and feel to be updated in line with more contemporary design approaches.
