What’s up with that website score badge thingy

You may have noticed the new badge over on the sidebar. That is hibbittsconsulting.com’s web marketing score as calculated by HubSpot’s Website Grader. From the site: “Website Grader is a free SEO tool that measures the marketing effectiveness of a website. It provides a score that incorporates things like website traffic, SEO, social popularity and other technical factors. It also provides some basic advice on how the website can be improved from a marketing perspective.”

So, basically what the badge says is that hibbittsconsulting.com ranks in the top 26% of all websites on the internet in terms of its marketing effectiveness. That’s right, out of the more than 182 billion websites on the internet1, hibbittsconsulting.com is better at gaining access to potential new customers than 74% of them.

It takes a lot of skill, imagination & hard work to build a website that can reach out to new clients, and generate new customers. But that’s what you’ll get when you contact me to help you manage your internet marketing efforts.

Here’s to new customers!
