Quick, Sherman set the ‘way back’ machine to December 2012 (anyone get that?). Two events happened almost simultaneously- me sending a request to our web page developer to move Supreme Gecko to be a mobile app and our site hacked 2 times in one month! We switched ISPs, lost the old site, and started on what would be a disaster and take 10 months of development work to get about 75% of the site back! Gone are some articles, some photos, EVERY comment on the site, all SEO traffic metrics (if you know what this means, you know how bad this was), and mine and my wife’s personal pages. Gone! Bug after Bug after Bug on the site has been fixed, and I am still finding them today. There, I’ve ranted and feel better (no, no I really don’t).
As some of you know, I try to be as positive as I can be. However, this really put a strain on me and especially on Supreme Gecko. Animals still bred, sales still occurred, but it was like watching a runner run a race and from the starting gun all the way to the finish line, stumble and almost fall, but, never fall. While that finish line is still a distant vision, I feel I’m at least not tripping over my own feet, and finally completing LAP 1. The web page is up and running and I am finally adding new content (and new animals).
New for Now
Articles-Blog Entries The value of the Supreme Gecko web site is not the For Sale section (although please visit at your earliest convenience), it is the information that is provided in the articles and blog entries- especially our features like FAQ, Most Underrated Gecko, and others. Today, I’ve added 5 new entries, including a tribute to a great graphics artist, and newest advertiser on the page- Bobby Delaney. Enjoy.
|I will be creating a new 'Learning' video series next year!|
Videos – I know, I know. I’ve heard it many many times. “Wally you need to add more videos!” Well, be careful of what you wish for. I’ve added a couple and will add 6 more in the next few weeks. What do you think? Any suggestions for additional videos? Leave your suggestion below please.
Animals For Sales over 50 new geckos added! I cannot tell you how many inquiries I’ve received in the past 6 months- “When are you adding new animals?” With this update, I’ve included some rare geckos, chahouas, leos, crested (including Females!), and gargoyles. Something for everyone.
New products – I’ve added (and organized) a few new supplies. We will ALWAYS feature products that work for OUR geckos, I believe in, and that will work for YOUR geckos. Want to see different products, leave a comment below. Wait until you see what we add in the next couple weeks!!!
Coming in the Future
More More More- I will be adding more articles/blog entries/videos/animals more often, and more consistently. I am in the process of creating a content schedule to Feature regular articles/posts/videos. I heard a lot of positive feedback on the Most Underrated Geckos series. I intend to keep this going with another similar series, including a learning series or two. This may begin as soon as January 1st as I will spend the next couple of months creating the content and getting things ready.
So much time, so little to do. Strike that, reverse it (one of my fav lines- anyone know the movie, comment below).
