website development design is a broad term covering many different skills and disciplines that are used in the production and maintenance of websites. The different areas of web design include; web graphic design, interface design, authoring; including standardised code and proprietary software, user experience design and search engine optimization. Often many individuals will work in teams covering different aspects of the design process, although some designers will cover them all. The term web design is normally used to describe the design process relating to the front-end (client side) design of a website including writing mark up, but this is a grey area as this is also covered by web development. Web designers are expected to have an awareness of usability and if their role involves creating mark up then they are also expected to be up to date with web accessibility guidelines.
Search Engines change they way they do business all the time. Major changes in SE algorithms can really give website owners a headache. One day a major product category is placing well on page 1 and the next day it may be buried on page 5. The good news? search engine marketing comes in two forms: Organic (blog post coming soon) and Pay-Per-Click Ads (PPC). A PPC campaign is one that generates website traffic through purchasing specific search terms. These terms are listed prominently so your ad will be seen by lots of potential customers. Today, the biggest player is Google AdWords, however Bing/Yahoo! also has PPC capability. Facebook and now, Twitter are also jumping into the paid-search field.

modular buildings and modular homes are sectional prefabricated buildings, or houses, that consist of multiple sections called modules. The modules are six sided boxes constructed in a remote facility, then delivered to their intended site of use. Using a crane, the modules are set onto the building's foundation and joined together to make a single residential, or commercial, building. The modules can be placed side-by-side, end-to-end, or stacked up to 4 stories in height, allowing a wide variety of configurations and styles in the building layout.
