You may have read on the DNA Blog that we said goodbye to our web programmer, Chris Keeley a few months ago. He’s gone to further his career in software development. So now it’s time to introduce his replacement, Rob Barfield.
Rob joined us recently from local firm Integralvision where he and Simon Farrow, our Web Development Manager, were colleagues for four years. Rob’s background is in computer technology and he’s been interested in what goes on ‘under the hood’ since his schooldays. This led him to study Internet Technology & Networks at university before launching into a career in web programming.
So what skills does he bring to DNA? As well as being a nice guy (so he fits in really well here…), Rob’s proven ability to create bespoke websites will help us to offer even more complex web solutions than before. Content Management Systems, e-Commerce and payment gateways, integration with Google applications… all these skills and more come neatly packaged in our new colleague!
Rob says: “I’ll build whatever the customer needs, whether it’s a back end system or any other kind of interaction with the web”.
Having built more than 80 websites, Rob has the ideal skill set to help us up our game in the fast-moving world of web solutions. Here’s an example of his most recent work, carried out in conjunction with designer colleagues:

Rob also has the distinction of being the only member of DNA’s staff to live within walking distance of the office. Welcome aboard, Rob!

I’ve recently set up a new online e-commerce business from scratch and have researched various unorthodox ways of short-cutting to better performance in the Search Engines. There’s a lot of debate about whether or not you can buy a domain name with a page rank and use it to get a head start, but nobody seems to provide a succinct answer. The truth of the matter is as follows (please correct me if I’m wrong):

You can buy a domain with a page rank from various websites. Just Google it and you’ll find them. Some of these page ranks seem to be legitimate and some appear to be falsified, so please beware. Once you direct the domain at your own server and give it your own content, it is likely that Google will reclassify the page rank as PR0. However, if the domain you bought performs well in existing online searches and already has numerous inbound links in place (which you can check before you buy), it is likely that you will achieve a better page rank far more quickly than if you set up a site from scratch with an entirely new domain.

If you want straightforward, professional advice on marketing your website – including whether or not Twitter and other social media will deliver a return on your investment – please give us a call.

According to a survey commissioned by ClickandBuy, a leading internet payment system, it seems that online merchants are losing business by not offering a sufficiently wide choice of internet payment methods.  The survey of 2000 online British adults, which was carried out by independent survey firm YouGov, found that half (50 per cent) of those who regularly shop online said that if their preferred payment method is not available, they will cancel the purchase.   

Supporting this statistic is that over one third (40 per cent) of all adults surveyed said that they would feel more comfortable purchasing from a retailer who offers a wide range of payment methods than a retailer who only offers one payment option.
