Hey guys…and Julia again today!!

Lisa Monks

Julia, but she’s not coming to Australia? smile

Lisa Monks
Guest

It is sooooo close to Australia haha

Ian Anderson Gray
Guest

So near, yet so far! wink

Mark Orr

Voice search is an area that I’m not sure about yet for websites!!

Ian Anderson Gray
Guest

I think it will come.

Mark Orr
Guest

I’ve seen a few marketers pushing tools to add it to websites especially with Alexa etc becoming more popular!!

Ian Anderson Gray
Guest

Interesting, Mark. I’ve not seen anyone talking about it recently. I’ll need to do some more research.

Voice search is not much good for deaf and hard of hearing

Ian Anderson Gray
Guest

Great point. I’m not overly convinced by it!

Mark Orr

Guttenburg the new wordpress editor, I use Beaver Builder, so haven’t used it

Ian Anderson Gray
Guest

I am exactly the same!

Lisa Monks
Guest

I love Beaver Builder

Ian Anderson Gray
Guest

Me too! smile

Mark Orr
Guest

Lastpass saves my frustration like Julia’s from logging in to websites etc.

Ian Anderson Gray
Guest

I couldn’t do without it!

Mark Orr
Guest

Me neither Ian :0

The trade off between usabilty and security is always gonna be hard, like 2 factor authentication that I already have set up on lots of accounts

Ian Anderson Gray
Guest

Very true. But at the moment – good security is just too difficult for the average user. It shouldn’t need to be that difficult.

Mark Orr

What about this recent Gogle slap for slow loading websites?

Ian Anderson Gray
Guest

Great question!

Lisa Monks
Guest

I’m with you Julia, really don’t like pop ups that appear as soon as you land on the page

Ian Anderson Gray
Guest

Yes, I can see both sides. I don’t like them either as a visitor – unless they are subtle and load as I am leaving maybe?

Mark Orr
Guest

If a service business website doesn’t have live chat, then I tend to avoid it…

Lisa Monks
Guest

One of the ones that annoy me the most is SME – as soon as you land on their page you get the free Social media Marketing Industry Report that takes up the entire screen on mobile

Ian Anderson Gray
Guest

I think testing pop ups on mobile is so important!

Mark Orr
Guest

Someone from Microsoft I hink it was, recently said that facial recognition can’t identify women and black peoples faces correctly…say what!!

Ian Anderson Gray
Guest

Oh dear, that’s not good. It obviously needs A LOT more work!

Lisa Monks
Guest

I have put a live chat bot on a customers website and get a great deal of enquiries

Ian Anderson Gray
Guest

Great idea!

Lisa Monks
Guest

HAHA I love Social Media Examiner and the content they share BUT that particular pop up really annoys me

Ian Anderson Gray
Guest

Yep, I know what you mean! I’m in two minds. As a user I hate those kinds of pop ups, but as a web site owner I’ve seen that they can work.

Mark Orr
Guest

Ian your sound effects aren’t coming through!!

Ian Anderson Gray
Guest

Uggh, I can now see why. My sound output changed after I updated to the latest version of Ecamm Live. Thanks for letting me know. I probably wouldn’t have known otherwise!

Mark Orr
Guest

Thanks as always guys!!

Ian Anderson Gray
Guest

Thanks so much for watching us live! Really appreciated your thoughts!

Lisa Monks
Guest

Good night from me, have a great day to you both! smile

Ian Anderson Gray
Guest

I can’t believe how late you were!

Hi Robert. Thanks for joining us – sorry you just caught us at the end!
