API Integrations

Make Your Website Work for You

An API is a software-to-software interface, presented as a set of programming instructions and standards for accessing a Web-based software application or Web tool.

How do I use API’s

I use API’s all the time. Currently when I post a picture on Instagram, I have Instagram the App send the photo to my Personal Facebook. It is nice that Instagram has a built in API to common social networks so I can easily pick and choose which ones I want on my personal Facebook. But in the background I also have my posts go to my Business Facebook and Twitter using Facebook’s and Twitters API’s which posting to multiple accounts in Instagram is not built into the App. From there I use Instagram’s API to automatically add my new Instagram Posts to my website. So with one post it fills up all my social media and I can do this with one click of a button. Lastly I also use API’s to integrate online forms with a payment processor, which in turn creates a spreadsheet in Google Sheets, then sends me an email notification and adds the payment to my cloud accounting software. So I don’t have to do anything. I call it, turning your website into a 24/7 employee.

Google’s Biggest Penalty Yet

Build Websites Responsively

Web design for Mobile Friendly Sites

As the owner of a business in Marin County or Sonoma County, you already know how important it is to have a strong online presence. After all, people in the local area generally check online before heading to nearby stores or businesses. In fact, 81 percent of consumers check to see if there is a website for that particular company before making any purchases. Just a few years ago, the majority of these potential customers accessed the Internet via desktop computers and laptops. According to comScore, the balance has tipped; more people now access the Internet via mobile devices. On April 21, Google drove this point home by updating the algorithms to make mobile-friendliness a strong factor in the search engine ranking structure. What does it mean for your site? Well, if it’s not mobile-friendly, it will not rank as well as another site that maybe is mobile friendly.

Test Your Site to see if its Responsive

Responsive Web Design

You can use Bootstrap two different ways. The way I like to use it is a little more difficult to install.

The easy way…

You will want to find your main theme.php file and copy the below code to the head of this file:

<!-- Latest compiled and minified CSS -->
<link rel="stylesheet" href="//maxcdn.bootstrapcdn.com/bootstrap/3.2.0/css/bootstrap.min.css">

<!-- Optional theme -->
<link rel="stylesheet" href="//maxcdn.bootstrapcdn.com/bootstrap/3.2.0/css/bootstrap-theme.min.css">

<!-- Latest compiled and minified JavaScript -->
<script src="//maxcdn.bootstrapcdn.com/bootstrap/3.2.0/js/bootstrap.min.js"></script>
