90 FREE Days of Eggcellent Analytics with CrazyEgg

90 Days Free CrazyEgg Subscription!

Usually, the first thing that comes to mind when you hear “web analytics” is streams of data and SEO. That's because everyone is concerned about getting traffic. But traffic is just the first step towards building a successful website. One of the most important aspects of any website is whether visitors actually do what you want them to do. Does your website design manage to guide users to the right information, so that they don't leave? Do they click on the action buttons? And more importantly, would your website perform better in its goals, if you made even minor structure and design changes. CrazyEgg is the simple heat map tool that gives you the answers to all these questions.

Getting Aboard the SiteGround Ship!

SiteGround Team Building on the Beach 2013

Ahoy, mateys! After spending three days with my new co-workers at the beach (hence the sailor speak), I am making my debut on the company blog, to share what it is like to get started at SiteGround. A boatful of new crew members has recently joined the company. More than 15 people, with me being one of them, have been recently hired by SiteGround to enlarge the customer service team and the marketing department. And before you got the wrong idea, our training was not held on the beach and was a little longer than three days. However, it was followed by the annual SG team building, which was a great finish to our initiation.

Serious Joomla Vulnerability found but we’ve got you Covered!

security

It is mid-summer now but security issues take no vacation. Actually they find the most inappropriate time to appear and make our lives more interesting, to say the least. On Thursday, 25 July the Joomla! Project announced the availability of Joomla 3.1.4/2.5.13 and many users upgraded their websites because the new releases provide tons of useful new features and bug fixes. One will think: job well done, it is time to hit the beach! But… On Thursday, 01 August, the Joomla! Project surprisingly  announced the immediate availability of Joomla! 3.1.5/2.5.14. Apparently not much time to sip exotic summer cocktails was allowed. The reason for this extremely short period between the two versions was that a critical level security issue was discovered just after the previous release and it had the potential to affect all Joomla! CMS versions. Yes, that's correct  - we are talking about all the Joomla! sites out there. All versions are affected - 1.5, 1.6, 1.7, 2.5 and 3. Sounds scary, right? Not if you're hosted on SiteGround servers!
