Tablet Set to Replace Desktop Explains Birmingham SEO Agency

Birmingham, UK (PRWEB UK) 31 March 2014

Since Google launched its mobile device reporting in Analytics last year, Birmingham SEO Agency, Essential Marketer, has seen tablet devices gain more ground over its desktop and mobile cousins.

Explains Essential Marketer Managing Director, Steve Feeney: Since Google introduced its separate mobile reporting weve seen a consistent rise in our clients Analytics showing tablets gaining higher percentages of usage over desktop and mobile.

So many people have been focused on converting their sites for mobile rather than tablet, and as a result they could be missing out on thousands in lost revenue.

Everybody wants to make the jump to make sure their site is mobile friendly without looking at whos actually visiting their site and through which device, when really they should be designing their site for tablet users over mobile.

Before mobile tracking was separated out, it was assumed that the share of the traffic was between desktop and mobile with tablet being a mere afterthought. Much research has been carried out in the last six months which has started to highlight the importance of tablet users. This, combined with Essential Marketers own findings seeks to highlight the importance of tablet devices.

As a lifestyle phenomenon sofa searching has been completely underestimated by a lot of marketers; our statistics prove that sofa searching brings more conversions than mobile searching. The team at Essential has analysed many of their clients and found that, not only is there a high percentage of traffic coming from tablets, but this is accompanied with a higher percentage in conversion rates than for mobile and in some instances desktop showing significant increases in revenue.

Native advertising has had its role to play on the way marketers have tried to make content fit across all platforms; the result is that it just doesnt work.

When a new client comes to us we look at conversion across all devices and, if a client has an ecommerce site, getting the site optimised for tablet devices is a given.

With evidence from our clients showing revenue increases of up to 50% all sites, in particular ecommerce sites can no longer afford to overlook this vital marketing tool, concludes Steve.

Los Angeles is Home to Indie Film From Around The World on April 19th at NFMLA

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) April 15, 2014

This month NewFilmmakers LA film festival will demonstrate its focus as a platform for independent filmmakers by showcasing a feature film created by a production team based out of Oklahoma.

With a micro budget, this film directed by Oklahoma native Mickey Reece has already been accepted to 7 film festivals including the Uptown Film Festival in Michigan where Mickey Reece received an award for Best Director and star Rebecca Cox took home the Best Actress award. Tarsus also won the Platinum Reel Award at the Nevada Film Festival.

It stars Adam Harrington who can be seen on shows such as Its Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Parenthood, and Scrubs.

Old animals that would have normally been put down are given a chance to live out the rest of their lives – but they must also endure the trials of aging. Through the struggles of a blind shepherding dog, and a wheelchair-bound Chihuahua, difficult questions come to the fore: were these elderly, disabled animals meant to live?

Through this documentary film Elizabeth Lo hopes to evoke questions about what it means to induce death or prolong life. Besides directing Elizabeth has also produced various television documentary series including OWNs Our America with Lisa Ling.

LUNA Director Antonio Perez

In a remote, desolate town, a cold-blooded serial killer invades a family’s quiet home. The sole survivor of his latest crime is a young girl, who does everything she can to escape before the mysterious stranger finds her.

ChixSC Towels Proven More Effective than Cotton for Foodservice Sanitizing

Charlotte, NC (PRWEB) March 31, 2014

New third-party test results released by Chicopee, a PGI company, shows that ChixSC Sanitizer Compatible Foodservice Towels consistently outperformed cotton and paper towels by 200 percent when measuring the strength of sanitizer they absorb and release onto food preparation surfaces.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, half of the 48 million cases of food-borne illnesses in the United States each year are linked to restaurant and food establishments. In addition, costs associated with foodborne illnesses range from $ 12-$ 25 billion annually and an outbreak could run into millions of dollars for a single foodservice operation.

Despite faithful compliance with cleaning and sanitization protocols, restaurants may still be exposing customers to bacteria that cause foodborne illnesses by using cotton or paper towels, which diminish the germ-fighting power of standard quat- and chlorine-based sanitizers. Up to 40% of the potency from the solution in sanitizer buckets can be locked up in cotton towels due to a chemical bond that forms between the towel and the sanitizer.

Made with a proprietary blend of nonwoven synthetic fibers, ChixSC towels release the sanitizer at full-potency. Because ChixSC towels are compatible with both quat- and chlorine-based sanitizers, they simplify the sanitizing process and make training staff easier. Available in white, blue, yellow and red, CHIX SC sanitizer compatible foodservice towels also support color-coded zone cleaning protocols.

Foodservice operators can visit to view a demonstration of the sanitizer depletion/compatibility phenomenon. Visitors to the site can also order free test kits at and make a direct comparison between the performance of their current towel and ChixSC.

Author K.R. Lugo Unveils a Mind-Blowing Mystery Thriller in New Fiction

Spanish Springs, Nev. (PRWEB) February 18, 2014

Society is in a complete shambles, leaving behind a bloodthirsty world that practically worships pain and suffering. Sitting at the helm is Marcus Powers, the most powerful individual the world has ever known and the person controlling so many aspects of life with his tremendous financial influence. Hes the impetus behind the popular Games, a highly publicized, fight-to-the-death drama that pits prison inmates against one another for the sake of entertainment.

Even so, Powers influence is not enough; he wants to be president, the keeper of the people, leading the citizens of the United States into new territory. This man, filled with evil and bemused by mans pathetic antics, has a plan, and he dares anyone to challenge his desire to mold a new world in his own image. But a small congregation of pious men and women recognize and understand the prophetic signs of each broken seal reflected by the sorry state of the society. With a Bible clutched in his right hand and an automatic weapon in his left, excommunicated priest Father OBannion and his tiny band of devout parishioners will risk everything to save the world from evil.

Prey for the Soulless (published by iUniverse) by K. R. Lugo is an action-packed struggle between good and evil, where men and women are trained as gladiators and tossed into a modern-day arena to fight one another in a game of death to entertain the wagering world. Miraculously blessed with the gift of inner-sight, an excommunicated priest identifies the ultimate villaina charismatic deceiver whose supernatural power and wealth are unmatchedand leads his parishioners on a spiritual quest to meet Marcus Powers in the den of iniquity and conquer both him and his demonic spawn.
