Article Body:
The Internet has been around for sometime but its popularity started a little more than five years ago as more
people gains access to public domain. As more Americans engage in online activities such as gaming,
surfing, communicating with relatives and friends, and stock brokering, new companies are created. Now
you have companies offering web design, web development, website hosting and SEO services. Aside from
this, our age is growing up to careers like graphic design and web designers, types of work, which were
inconceivable a decade ago.
Now you may be asking: What sort of work do these new companies engage in? Web development is the
general term used to refer to all the activities I mentioned about. Any activity related to the creation of a
website can be categorized under this term. Some professionals, however, insists that web development
refers more to the technical side such as coding and networking.
Webdesign services are involved with the layout of a website. The web design is the first thing people notice
when they visit a page. It is also one of the major factors considered by repeat visitors. There are four
aspects of design: the content (basically this is the information on the site), the usability (the functions and
features of the website), the appearance (should be enticing to readers0 and lastly, the visibility (people must
be able to find your site!). The main goal of a good website designer is to make information readily
available to his readers in a form that is very easy to understand.
SEO services are basically a marketing strategy used by sites to get more traffic, or in laymen's terms, to get
people to visit their sites. Say for example a person goes to Google and types in SEO, they should be able to
find sites relating to search engine optimization and the those sites at the top of the list has the highest page
rank, meaning, these are the sites which is visited most often. There are other websites which are not
indexed or listed in Google, MSN or Yahoo. This means that unless you know the website's name, no one
will get to visit that site. To make your site popular, you need to build links to your site, and this is what
companies engaged in SEO does.
Now, let's talk about something less technical. Did you know that more people are spending more time with
the internet than watching TV, reading the papers and listening to the radio? For one, you can do all these
three things while sitting in front of your laptop. Now you no longer need a Tivo or a subscription to the
local paper because now, you can get anything from the web for free! You can now do your shopping
online; you can even gamble or take out loans from the internet. Aside from this, work is no longer confined
to the office. When you need to beat a deadline, the internet gives best solution – bring your work home and
let your VPN put you right back to work!
Surely, we are entering a new world – one where everything has its virtual counterpart. From teachers to
bankers, friends and dates, everything we need is now online. But how has this affected our society today?
In a study of 4,000 respondents, it was reported that internet usage was averaging at 2-5 hours a week while
those in the extremes spend more than 10 hours in front of their computers. This has caused the 15% decline
in social activities and another 25% who are spending lesser hours in talking to their friends or their
families. Truly, this world has become a digital world of conveniences, and a world where people are losing
contact with their social environment.
