The latest release of Concrete5 is now public. From Concrete5:
"concrete5 5.6.0 introduces a completely rearchitected advanced permissions system that is better in every way. 5.6.0 also adds a new workflow system (which uses these permissions), an updated UI, and over a hundred other bug fixes and feature improvements. Read on for a video of the new permissions and workflow systems."
Our recommendation is if your Concrete5 website is version 4.2.2 or older that there would be some real advantages to upgrading your website now.
There is now a beta release for Concrete5 version 5.6 now available. This new release includes a total revamp for how the Advanced Permission System works and we like it. The full release of version 5.6 is scheduled for August 28th.
Local vs. National SEO
Many businesses find that they are small fish in a big pond with it comes to search engine optimization (SEO). Do a search for the type of business you are in on Google and you are likely to find that you are competing with 1 million national websites for 10 positions on page one of Google. If you aren’t on page one than more than likely you aren’t being found. What many website owners don’t know is that you can localize your search engine optimization to reduce the size of the pond and be found on Google. Even if you are selling your products nationally you can localize to get into many smaller ponds so that you can rank highly in the search results for specific keywords on a local level.
