Posted by Mark Kenneth B. Herrero on Sep 13, 2018 8:30:00 AM

The prospect of AI ruling over humanity isn't a new one. However, with today's artificial intelligence technology becoming more and more... intelligent and widespread; could it be time to start worrying?


What is Artificial Intelligence?

AI gives a machine the ability to imitate intelligent human behavior. The concept of AI is based on the idea of building a machine capable of thinking, acting, and learning like humans.

With enough input (like historical data and user data), advanced hardware, and software systems combined, AI is a force to be reckoned with.

3 Best Online Reservation Systems to Boost Restaurant Revenue

Posted by Mark Kenneth B. Herrero on Aug 9, 2018 8:30:00 AM

If your restaurant accepts reservations and has a website or any form of online presence, then you need to have at least one online reservation system in place!

Why, you ask? One reason is simply because they're just worth it for all the benefits they can bring to the table.

If a website is essentially a free round-the-clock sales person for your business, then an online reservation system is the host/hostess version of that. They will save your staff time by essentially taking a task off of everyone's workload. Someone wants to walks in your restaurant for a reservation? Your staff themselves can use the online system in place. Easy. And with most people going online to find places to eat, it's actually a must to have these channels in place.

Even your brand perception can get a boost. A restaurant with no website or online reservation system can easily give a "behind the times" vibe.

Single-Page vs. Multi-Page Websites: Who Wins in SEO?

Posted by Mark Kenneth B. Herrero on Aug 2, 2018 8:30:00 AM

When it comes to deciding whether your next website should be a single-page or a multi-page one, there can be a lot of subtle and not-so-subtle factors to consider. One of, if not the biggest not-so-subtle factor is, you guessed it: SEO. Below we'll be covering what the differences are between these two and how they can ultimately make or break your website as a whole.

What Exactly Is A Single-Page And A Multi-Page Website?

If you are unfamiliar with this trend (you shouldn't be!), here are some examples of single-page websites to get you started. Essentially, they are websites with all of their information dumped into a single page; the homepage. Sure, they may have one or two extra pages, but the idea is that everything you need to know is on one page. A sort of "quick and easy" version of your standard website.

10 of the Best Ways to Increase Website Traffic

Posted by Mark Kenneth B. Herrero on Jul 10, 2018 8:30:00 AM

Having an awesome website is like paying once for an employee that never stops working. An employee that can act as the face of your business, provide information without needing to talk to a human and even generate sales! On the flip side, having a bad website is like paying for an employee that doesn't come in to work at all. Basically a waste of money.

In theory this makes a lot of sense, but not everything can be as simple in the real world! A high-quality website needs one crucial thing to actually show results: traffic! If no one visits  your website, then it can only be as good as a bad one.

11 Helpful Ways How to Improve & Reduce Website Bounce Rate

Posted by Mark Kenneth B. Herrero on May 10, 2018 8:30:00 AM

It's common knowledge that reducing bounce rates for your website is a standard part of the SEO process; and that a high bounce rate for your website is bad.

While this is generally true for a lot of sites, there's actually a lot more to work to it.

Or perhaps you suspect there is a misconfiguration in your analytics code and you're getting junk data.

Once you know whether your bounce rate is good or not, read on below to find 11 ways to reduce website bounce rate.
