Google has added the ability to watch your site's visitors as it happens, live. You can watch location, page views, time on site and more. The real time view can be accessed only on the new layout version on your new "Home" page.

Top 5 Reasons We Changed Our Name http://www.blueskywebworx.com/web-design-company-blog/top-5-reasons-we-changed-our-name.html http://www.blueskywebworx.com/web-design-company-blog/top-5-reasons-we-changed-our-name.html Top 5 Reasons We Changed Our Name
With all of the excitement going on around the office of Blue Sky Web Worx regarding our name change, we wanted to take a second and explain why changed our name.

So, here's our Top 5 Reasons we changed our name from Big Blue Sky Marketing:
  1. Removed the word “big” to stop people from asking if we’re over-compensating for something. Whatever that means...
  2. To remove two extra sylables from our name.
  3. Stop our hands from cramping up while writing out our old long company name.
  4. Adding a “X” to the end of "Worx" just looks pretty darn cool.

  5. And the number one reason we changed our name...

  6. To better describe what we do.

Get Closer To Your Customers With Google+ Pages

Google+ has just launched pages that can be used for a local business or place, product or brand, company, institution or organization. The advantage for businesses is that by creating a Google+ page you increase your online visibility, increase your customer interaction potential and Google is also including Google+ business pages into their results.

"People search on Google billions of times a day, and very often, they're looking for businesses and brands," Google Senior Vice President of Engineering Vic Gundotra wrote. "Today's launch of Google+ Pages can help people transform their queries into meaningful connections, so we're rolling out two ways to add pages to circles from Google search."
