Jodi Knows Homes visits Casanova | SEO | Web Design 

Jodi Heifner-Divierto of “Jodi Knows Homes” visited Casanova last week. We had an extensive conversation about realestate, SEO, and web design. We even discussed some new technological developments in the Augmented Reality space and how that will affect the realestate market. 

Check out Jodi’s website at: http://www.jodiknowshomes.com
Augmented reality provides many visual aids and supplemental information for realtors to provide to potential buyers. Imagine holding your phone up to a beautiful cabinet in a home and getting a video or other information on the cabinet. Or even holding your phone up to a yard sign and watching a 360 video and tour of the inside of the home!

We also discussed SEO and how important it is to the real estate market. Contracting a seo marketing company provides any business owner, especially a realesate agent, the ability to get their information in front of their customers online. 

It appears to be a seller’s market in the Naperville-Plainfield-Oswego and Will county area. If you are looking to sell your home contact Jodi at her website:

Women in Technology

Although there has been a recent trend in people choosing to go into tech-based careers, women seem to be largely missing from the field. As a woman, I wonder why more of us do not choose this industry. The opportunities are tremendous and are only growing.

According to a 2012 report by the National Science Foundation, women make up only 18% of engineering, 18% of computer science and 19% of physics majors at the college-level.

Surprisingly enough, the same study showed that STEM-based electives at the high-school level had roughly the equal amount of women and men enrolled. As a woman in the technology field, I saw some of those disturbing statistics first-hand.

In my very first college-level scripting course, I was the ONLY female in a class of roughly 25. Imagine being the only woman in a class of 18-25 year old men. Strange, awkward, socially-inept, mouth-breathing men.

Ladies, where are you? Careers in these fields can be extremely rewarding. Seeing the website you just developed show up in a Google search, selling thousands of copies of that app you worked tirelessly on, hearing that the database you created for that Fortune500 company is error-free… The rewards are gratifying.

Although recent numbers show the trend heading upwards in our favor, we need to do better! Help break that stigma of mothers in Silicon Valley (or Shorewood, IL, as it is in my case).

Age Old Virus Scam, Beware!

There have been many Internet users who have fallen victim to virus scams recently. The virus that is the most scary is the fishing virus, which takes control of your computer and holds it hostage. It then asks you if you would like remote IT support. The unsuspecting individual will then proceed to give their financial and network information to the scammers. The scammers purport to fix the issues on your computer. However, just like with most scams, the scammer continues to squeeze the victim for every penny. A few weeks, months, etc. down the line, and they will be back to ask for more money. The virus was never removed from your computer. It’s still there, ready to be used when the scammer wants more money. Beware! If you run into these issues, call a professional.

One of the best investments that a business can make is in it’s digital real estate. SEO not only improves search rankings, but it also improves usability of a site, along with functionality and design. An SEO’s insistence on search and page rankings allow for a more concise site that it is readable by the search engines, and thus, more readable by the human engines. To create a website specifically for business and without utilizing SEO can be damaging to the business.

PC Gaming Now!!!

PC gaming had been around for a very long time. But for many it has been a niche. The console has dominated for decades as the platform for your average gamer. Price point is a huge inhibitor. To really get into PC gaming you need at least a GTX 960 which costs about $200 bucks. A nice set of headphones, a decent gaming keyboard and mouse, a decent monitor – here GamingBuff recommends Asus, Acer, AOC and BenQ, Windows license, XBox PC controller, and you’re at at least at $1000. However, while the barrier to entry is high, the rewards are even higher. Your experience will be more complete as you will have access to far more games than what the console provides. You also have a full blown computer at your disposal which can give you access to more content and more productivity than you’d get on the current generation of consoles. If considered were any better, they’d just be computers. The current consoles are locked down computers as they are.

If you haven’t done so already, get yourself a gaming computer.
