We’ve all seen them. They pop up whenever we type in a web address incorrectly or have a broken link on a site. Hitting the Error 404 page can cause the confused and annoyed visitor to bounce immediately.

But through customized Error 404 pages, you can keep your visitors engaged and informed that maybe they just need to try again, or contact the company if the problem persists. It’s a nice perk to have an Error 404 page that glues visitors to your site—and perhaps even keeps them entertained.

Once your company’s website is designed by Fahrenheit Marketing, you can be sure that your visitors will never want to leave it, no matter if they hit an Error 404 page or not. To learn more about our customer converting website designs, you should contact Fahrenheit Marketing today.


The Google Doodle Story

If you love Google search as much as we do, you may have noticed the recent flurry of Google doodles during the Olympics. Every day highlighted a different sport, from Archery on July 28th to Rhythm Gymnastics on August 10th. A few of the best, such as Soccer, Basketball and Slalom Canoe were even interactive.

All the doodling from the Google team got us wondering how the Google doodle got started. And who exactly is doodling these days?

Turns out that the doodle originated in 1998, when Google’s founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin toyed with the logo to indicate that they were headed to the Burning Man festival in Nevada. They placed a stick figure behind the 2nd “o” in the word Google and thus the doodle was born.

In 2000, the founders asked Dennis Hwang, an intern at the time, to design a doodle for Bastille Day. The doodle was so successful that Hwang was promoted to chief doodler and is still with the company today.

These days it isn’t interns handling the Google doodle. Instead it’s a team of illustrators and engineers who occasionally work with guest artists. Recently, Google also sponsored a contest for school-aged kids to design a doodle. Judges of the contest included singers Katy Perry and Jordin Sparks.

SERPs analyzed more than 400 SEO websites across the United States’ largest markets and chose Fahrenheit Marketing to make the cut into the selective top 10.

According to the SERPs blog post announcing the top 10, the voters were swayed by user-friendly design and ease of communication, in addition to Fahrenheit Marketing’s portfolio and credentials.

Since Fahrenheit Marketing began in 2008, we have always been involved in PR. But now we have stepped it up even more through our partnership with PR Web, which provides online press release syndication—plus, we recently hired, Julianne, a PR expert, to head up our PR department.

Fahrenheit chose to offer this new service because it’s a high quality resource that returns exceptional results. Through writing one press release our clients’ Google rankings are being improved by 20 or more spots for the keywords they choose. This of course is increasing the profile of their companies as major news outlets such as Yahoo! News, Topix,  Scottrade.com, StreetInsider, International Business Times, etc., share about their companies’ successes.

These press releases build back links in a quarter of the time it takes with lower quality link-building options. Through working with Fahrenheit, your press release is distributed to more than 250,000 PRWeb news subscribers and 30,000+ journalists and bloggers.

The more permanent high-quality links you have pointing to your site, the higher your company will move up in search engines. These views result in increased traffic on your website, more conversions and higher profits.

But you don’t have to do anything. We do the work for you so you can just focus on your business. We are now building back links for our clients like never before, and are excited about what this means for our clients’ success.

We now offer full-service online public relations to all our clients, as well as a la carte public relations option to those who only want PR. To learn more about our PR services, contact Fahrenheit Marketing today.


Fahrenheit Makes the Top Ten SEO Agency Sites and Reaches PR5

Last week we were looking at our Twitter feed when we saw our name mentioned in a SERPs.com tweet:

“What?! Really?” we all said after clicking on the link and reading the article. SERPs.com analyzed over 400 SEO agency websites across the largest markets in the U.S., and we made the selective cut into the top 10.

SERPs.com enjoyed the user-friendly aspects of our site, how we make fun designs without flash, and our unobtrusive chat box. Our favorite line of the review was:

“When I enter this site I feel like a welcomed long lost relative, and the employees of Fahrenheit definitely show their southern hospitality by showing the love to their clients, according to their impressive credentials and portfolio.”

We recently re-launched our website after many hours of intense work from our web designers, web developers and content writers. Our goal is for the site to function as our portfolio piece, so our potential clients can see what we can do for them. It was encouraging that all our hard work was noticed.

If that wasn’t exciting enough, we also found out this morning that our website is now a PR5, or has a Google PageRank of 5.

For those who aren’t sure what in the world that means, PageRank measures a web page’s importance. A web page that has a lot of links pointing towards it has a higher rank because people tend to link to relevant content.

PageRank is one factor that affects where a web page shows up in search result rankings. It is measured on a scale of 1-10, with one being the lowest. Since it is set on a logarithmic scale, it is much harder to move from a PR4 to a PR5 than from a PR1 to a PR2.

The best way to increase PageRank is through quality content that others would want to link to from their sites
