Get Facebook Graph Search Without Waiting

Written by Fraser Hannah on Tuesday, 22 July 2014. Posted in Search Engine Marketing


How to access Facebook Graph Search now!

Facebook Graph Search appears to be rolling out frustratingly slowly in the UK, with some user waiting for several months before gaining access. If you can’t wait that long, don’t worry you can easily register and get Facebook Graph Search without waiting.

Graph Search rolled to English speakers in the US and is now immediately available to them when they sign up. In order to get Facebook Graph Search now you will need to make it appear that you are located in the US. Using a free proxy service such as Hide My Ass, which will make it look like you are located in the US, and allows you to register for a US, based Facebook account.

Responsive Website Design

on Thursday, 06 June 2013. Posted in Web Design


Now a requirement not an option!

Web design has always been a fast paced medium constantly changing as technology evolves. In the last couple of years we have seen this process quicken as tablets and smart phone flood onto the market. Initially designers focused on building separate mobile sites but as screen sizes expanded this quickly became impractical.

In response developers switched to a responsive approach where websites became flexible, adjusting to fit the screen they were being viewed on. Instead of having to pinch and zoom images and content blocks stacked neatly allowing users to easily scroll through the content.

The benefits of using a local web design provider

Written by William Craig on Thursday, 14 March 2013. Posted in Web Design


When any business, large or small decides to improve their online presence through web design or online marketing there are plenty of options available to them in the market. It can be a difficult decision, from that company you saw with TV adverts to that friend of a friend who's a web designer and everything in between. It's important not to rush into any decisions as it's something you're going to want to get right first time!

So how do you decide?

Well I work for a small design agency so I'm always going to be bias towards choosing a local web design company, but that doesn't necessarily mean I'm not right. Your website is going to be a huge investment for your firm and is a great opportunity for you to increase your market share. No matter what decision you make, no web designer is going to know your business as well as you do so the most important thing is communication and building a relationship with those who are going to create the face of your company online.

6 Reasons to use a mate rather than a web designer!

on Monday, 22 October 2012. Posted in Web Design


1. They are cheaper and if family free

Good web design costs money! Web designers spend years studying all aspects of web design. We have premise, insurance, legitimate software and up to date computer to purchase before we start. Your mate down the road has no overheads as he is most likely working out of this bedroom.

2. They will provides unlimited revisions

It's true that we would normally only do a couple of revisions at the most, and in general we get it right first time. But if revisions are your thing then you will be in good hands.

My time at Wombat so far

Written by Nadene Gemson on Friday, 03 August 2012. Posted in Latest News


As I've only been here for nearly a month, my knowledge on how to build websites is ever increasing and becoming more complex. Starting from simple tasks on understanding all the technical terms and tags, to installing the more crafty gadgets that appear within a site.
