How can taking a selfie make a difference? We answered that question yesterday when we volunteered at Day 3 of Denver Gives week.

Armed with our cellphones and some KIND bars to give away, we headed to the 16th Street Mall to help promote the #GiveofyourSELFIE campaign, which encourages people everywhere to raise awareness of causes or charities they support.

How do multiple domains affect search engine ranking?

How many domain names do you need for an online business? One? Three? Twelve?

We asked exactly that question in a recent survey conducted on Who.is. According to the results, 41.3% of survey takers believe that businesses need 2 to 4 domain names.

How a New Domain can help you land your next job

how a New Domain can help you land your next job

The way we search for and apply to jobs has changed dramatically over the past few decades. And while it’s not quite time to toss the traditional cover letter and resume, it is time to change the way you present yourself to employers.

The Huffington Post reports that 80% of employers Google potential employees before inviting them to an interview. Yep, that’s right. All of your embarrassing Instagram selfies and Twitter rants will appear right before a hiring manager’s eyes the moment they click Search.

So instead of waiting for a potential employer to stumble across disastrous photos of Spring Break ’08, why not create a standout website with a memorable New Domain?

Hack the Dot Seattle was the toast of the town

Hack the Dot came to Seattle last week to bring lots of nerdy goodness to The Emerald City. About 60 people—designers, devs, marketers, bloggers, and a few wayward souls yet to be defined by professional labels—dove into the task of creating a functional web product for a domain name revealed at the start of the event: sandwich.news.

Armed with free pizza and beer, it seemed like participants could accomplish anything … and they did. The teams created everything from an animated talking sandwich to a horoscope that aligns your sign with the sandwich that’s right for you. There was even a Chrome plugin to soften the news with sandwich-related nouns (Cecil the Lion was shot with a pickle, for example).
