He has won fans across the country with his unique talent at the keyboard. His style of world class musicianship combined with an engaging stage presence sparks an immediate rapport between Mr. Jordan and his audiences. Terry has performed for Presidents, Governors, Astronauts, and foreign dignitaries. He has also shared the stage with numerous celebrities.

We used the parallax effect through out the site. Parallax (not displayed on mobile devices) scrolls background images at different rates of speed, giving an almost 3D effect.

A mis-conception exists as to which type of access (computer or mobile) a typical website visitor uses. Most people that I come in contact with believe that the majority of website visitors come to a site via mobile device (phones). That is not generally the case as demographics (age, gender, interests, etc.) seems to be the main determinant. For instance I recently ran the stats for the Grove Dental Associates website and found that 66% of the site visitors came via desktop computer.

This doesn’t mean that a web designer can ignore the mobile display. In April 2015 Google issued a paper stating that websites that were not responsive (mobile friendly) would see their search ranking decrease. Mobile friendly meant that the user should not have to pinch and zoom his phone display to view content. Consequently, responsive design ensures that all content (text, photos, etc.) collapse from right to left into a single column for easy viewing on a phone display.

All of the sites that we have built since April 2015 are responsive and the majority of our client pre 2015 websites have been upgraded to be responsive. Google provides a site for testing mobile responsiveness.

Secure Encrypted Websites

Knowing that Google is now giving a search preference to secure encrypted websites (HTTPS) we converted our site to be fully HTTPS compliant and we are certified.

Certification is a way to show that your site doesn’t contain malware, phishing, or exploit codes that will harm your customers. A phishing email is an email sent by a criminal who tries to impersonate your website. The email usually includes a link to their own website or uses a man-in-the-middle attack to use your own domain name. Because it is very difficult for these cyber criminals to receive a proper SSL certificate, they can't perfectly impersonate your site. This means that your users will be far less likely to fall for a phishing attack because they will be looking for the trust indicators in their browser, such as a green address bar, and they won’t see it.
