As I write, a massive worldwide hacking campaign is underway against websites running the Joomla CMS.

A little over a week ago, a critical security hole was discovered in all versions of Joomla. An upgrade was very quickly released for the latest versions of Joomla, and a patch was released for all previous versions.

But if you haven't installed these, it's probably only a matter of time before your website is hacked.

Following on from the success of the LinkedIn group, we've just launched a new Facebook group, Gloucestershire E-commerce, to help local companies to share tips and advice for improving sales in their online shops.

Design is critically import for your online shop, but what actually makes a good design?

It's not about being different, or having a fancy, impressive design. Quite the opposite in fact.

A lot of companies like to explain about what they do that's "different". Some even go as far as explaining "how" they do things that makes them different.

But I thought I'd take it a bit further and explain WHY we're different. What drives us, and what's our passion?

Have you noticed those adverts that seem to know exactly what you've been looking at?

You look at some products online, and a few hours or days later, you notice adverts for those exact products at the exact same online shops that you were visiting. It's scary when you first see it.

So how does it work? And how can you use it in your online marketing?
