Soon, Google is going to make the web a safer place. Well, not exactly, but they are going to let you know which sites are not secure.
On July 24th, 2018, the web giants are going to be marking sites without an SSL Certificate as "Not secure" with the release of Google Chrome 68. Here's an example of what that will look like:
Why the change?
SSL Certificates help protect you from cybercriminals. Hi-tech thieves look for unsecured websites that have vulnerabilities in their network.

Here at BlueTone Media, we love being a part of a small coastal town. We are surrounded by so many wonderful restaurants, coffee shops, and small businesses, that truly offer something unique to the community. At least once a week we leave the office for lunch and go on an adventure to see if we can find something new, and more often than not we do. This got me to think about the differences between how local businesses and national companies approach online advertising.

If you are running a website and are noticing drops in traffic and fewer conversions, it may be time to consider a redesign. Technology changes fast, and an upgrade with a fresh look may just be the boost that your business or brand needs. Here are six reasons to redesign your site.
The Site is Outdated
If your site has been online for at least three years, it likely needs a new design. Studies have shown that visitors will judge your website within .05 seconds of loading and will leave within 10 seconds if the purpose of your business is not clear. In addition, 75 percent of visitors will use the site design as a measurement of your credibility. This is why a modern and well-maintained website is so important.
It has been a busy few months here at BlueTone Media, the team has been working hard to launch our last batch of responsive websites.
The Albert J Ellis Airport located in Jacksonville, NC is our latest redesign. We started by developing a new responsive design to assist mobile users that visit the website. The next step was to add more pages that thoroughly describe all of the services the airport offers, and that also help travelers plan their flights. We topped off the design by adding an Instagram feed to keep visitors up to date with what is happening only a daily basis. Fly OAJ provides direct flights to Atlanta, Charlotte, and beyond.
