So What’s New?

As mentioned last week, our new website is up and running and although it may appear the same for you, there’s lots going on in the background that we figured we’d share with you.

Firstly there are some noticeable changes: the tutorials section is now a lot better looking when navigating…

We also have a nice little box in the top right that let’s you better navigate your user account…

Finally users’ profile pages are now a lot nicer than before…

Security

The website security has increased majorly since our first site. The main problem was that you could have as many attempts to log into HobbyGenius as you liked. As a result we got hacked and then had some malicious code that didn’t seem to go away, you may have noticed that my Profile got hacked…

and as a result, we had this appearing in our Google results…

This made me sad :( but since the update there should be no more glaring vulnerabilities…

Better SEO

Finally in our big update is our SEO (search engine optimisation). HobbyGenius now looks very sexy on Google…

Google Search

Authors of posts will now have a little link to their Google+ profile, the description in the search is more accurate than the Googlebot’s understanding of the results and on the whole it all just looks nicer. This is thanks to Rich Snippets that have been implemented in the background of each page.

Links to HobbyGenius on Twitter also come out a lot tidier…

So there you go. As we said before it’ll take some time to re-upload the tutorials but this should be finished in a few weeks.
