In the last quarter century the way we get information has drastically changed. In the 80s you had to go to the library to research something you wanted more information about. Or you had to find someone who had the information you needed.

In the last quarter century the way we get information has drastically changed. In the 80s you had to go to the library to research something you wanted more information about. Or you had to find someone who had the information you needed. This is they way information has been passed along for centuries.

In the early 90s something called the Internet was created. There were other small internet like networks mainly known as bulletin board systems before this, but this was the first commercialized network that was open to the public. At the time there was a company called AOL that splashed into homes all across America and around the world. During this time it was the most popular internet provider around. It often had problems due to the volume of users trying to use the internet at once. AOL is now a thing of the past. Since then many internet providers have come and gone.

Many companies started to use the Internet to market there business. The more sites that were put up the harder it became to search the web. By 1999 there were a couple search engines. The biggest one at the time was the Yahoo search engine still in its primitive stages. Google came on to the market that same year it was also in its infancy stages. The way Google looked at web pages changed the face of the search engines. Slowly thru out the early 2000’s Google started to take its place among the big dogs in the search engine market. Today Google owns the market. Roughly 91% of the search queries go thru Google.

Instead of going to the library and getting the information you need, you Google it. Google it has now become the new form of getting the information you need. You can find anything and everything you want to online. You can shop, you can do research, you can find phone numbers and address, you can find the people you went high school with, you can download music, and there are millions and millions of videos on everything you can imagine. The Internet and Google has changed the way business is conducted. All of this is even available on cell phones and other hand held devices. Everything can be purchased online; services and products alike. There is no longer a geographical barrier for companies.

The Internet and Google have propelled our society to the next level. Everything is now available to every one that has an internet connection or a mobile device. It is hard to imagine how it will get any better in the future. I guess we will have to stay tuned to see what is to come.

Branded Website - June 2016

When I met Gabe and the rest of the team at Ringer I really felt like they could bring my site to the next level. They brought plenty of ideas to the table in our first consultation. That never stopped throughout the process of building the site out. That’s why we ended up with such a great website, custom to us. I’M HAPPY I HIRED A RINGER.
