Fascinated by internet search.

I am Chris Jones and my main activity is controlling and developing the promotional products website CrazyDavePromo.com in a way that allows Google to recognise that visitors love it. We also have a Euro denominated site Custom Logo Tech.

I used to give occasional advice on the search engine performance of websites and I manage Google Adwords accounts for one or two businesses.

It is a satisfying paradox that since I am busy with the Crazy Dave website I have no interest in my own website being found on search engines. Strange but true.

My background

Originally an electronics engineer I spent many years in database application programming as a consultant analyst programmer in telecoms, banking and commercial business. Now I concentrate on one database called Google Search and I enjoy seeing my affect on its data.

I don’t design websites, I help them

I look at web design as being made up of two main elements: visual design and functional design.

A lot of techies who call themselves web designers actually lack visual design skills and the result is visually unappealing and that leads to poor user engagement which Google picks up on.

On the other hand talented visual designers can produce beautiful websites that are often inherently poor at giving Google the information it needs.

I’m no good at visual design (but of course I know what I like!) but I know a thing or two about functional design. That is the technical aspect and some of the “psychological” stuff that makes visitors stick around and send the right signals to Google.

Other interests

I occasionally write on my blog DiabetesFirsthand.com – being fairly well qualified from a user perspective. Trust me I’m a patient.
