Art Z design is a very popular web development service.
We had over 15,000 visitors in April of 2011. We averaged over 500 unique visits per day. We had about 500 referrers from Google, and over 2000 visits from the Googlebot.
See for your self.
Increase you chances of getting Listed on Google
The Googlebot visits Art Z design several times per day, following every link in our site. If we design your site, it will be listed on our site, with a link. As a result, it will be visited by the Googlebot soon after being listed. This translates to more visitor traffic sooner. Without this link, it can take up to 1 year to get the Googlebot to visit your site, and without a Googlebot visit, a listing on Google is highly unlikely.
Most of the other search engine robots visit daily also, so it doesn't take long to get your site listed where your clients can find it.
The only way to get a link on Art Z design is for us to design your site. If we didn't design your site, please don't ask.

How Not to Get Hooked by a Phishing Scam
May 5, 2011
Don't get caught in the most devious scam to take advantage of unsuspecting internet users.
I receive at least four phishing scam email per day. These bogus messages, claimed to be from well known banks, Ebay or Pay Pal. See a sample below. They use the companies actual logo, and make the scam look like a page from the web site they are spoofing.
Bottom line, never give out personal or financial information at the request of any email. Even if it looks legitimate, call the company to verify that the request is authentic.
The following article describes the phishing scam.
I've also included a screen grab from an actual phishing scam email, and a link to the FTC web sites phishing article.
On the Internet, phishing (sometimes called carding or brand spoofing) is a scam where the perpetrator sends out legitimate-looking e-mails appearing to come from some of the Web's biggest sites, including eBay, PayPal, MSN, Yahoo, BestBuy, and America Online, in an effort to phish (prounounced "fish") for personal and financial information from the recipient.
Phishers use any number of different social engineering and e-mail spoofing ploys to try to trick their victims. In a recent case before the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), a 17-year-old male sent out messages purporting to be from America Online that said there had been a billing problem with recipients' AOL accounts. The perpetrator's e-mail used AOL logos and contained legitimate links. If recipients clicked on the "AOL Billing Center" link, however, they were taken to a spoofed AOL Web page that asked for personal information, including credit card numbers, personal identification numbers (PINs), social security numbers, banking numbers, and passwords.
Phishing is a variation on the word fishing: fishers (and phishers) set out hooks, knowing that although most of their prey won't take the bait, they just might entice some to bite. The FTC warns users to be suspicious of any official-looking e-mail message that asks for updates on personal or financial information and urges recipients to go directly to the Web site of the company to find out whether the request is legitimate. If you suspect you have been phished, forward the e-mail to email@example.com or call the FTC help line, 1-877-FTC-HELP.

These are actual phishing scam email message. PayPal assured me that they would never ask for personal or financial account information in this way.
Fraudulent emails and spoofing, formerly known as phishing.
What is a fraudulent email? (spoofing)
A fraudulent (spoof) email pretends to be from a well-known company, such as PayPal or eBay, in an attempt to get personal information from you. People who send spoof emails hope to use your information - such as credit and debit card numbers or account passwords - to commit identity theft.
You can prevent spoof from affecting you
Spoof, or "phishing," emails - and the spoof websites often associated with them - are deceptive in appearance. However, they contain content that reveals they're fake. The most important thing to do to protect yourself is be able to spot this misleading content.
