What Is Invisible Gold?
Invisible Gold enables you to have a new type of web site that is fast, secure, and most important: you can easily update the content. It is commonly considered a Content Management System. These products are used to manage content for very large organizations and their web sites. Invisible Gold brings the features of these big expensive products to the small business and individual users.
How Do I Update My Site?
Updating the content of your site is simple. You simply log in and edit pages using just your browser. You can add and remove pages, edit text, and add and remove images. There is no need to use FTP to upload new versions of pages like with an HTML editor, and you don't need to worry about breaking the navigation.
What About a Shopping Cart?
Invisible Gold let's you manage products on an ecommerce site just as easily as you create and edit pages. The shopping cart can automatically calculate tax, shipping, handling, discounts, and more. All traffic is safe and secure. Orders can be handled right in Invisible Gold, or exported to common databases.
What about Search Engines?
A recent report found that 499 out of 500 sites on the Internet are invisible to the search engines. (The common term is "Invisible Web") These are primarily database-backed and editable sites and the problem is in the way they use addresses.
Search engines shy away from addresses with question marks and thus these sites just won't show up. If this is important to you, understand that Invisible Gold was designed from the start to avoid this common problem and work well with Search Engines.
OK, so what does Invisible Gold mean?
Northern Nevada was the site of a huge gold strike in the 1980s. The amount of gold was staggering. However, the particles were small enough to be virtually invisible. The cost to extract the gold definitely outweighed the reward. However, modern alchemists discovered a simple solution using zinc and cyanide, and a modern gold rush was born.
The same sort of change is underway on the internet. Websites used to be out of reach for ordinary people, or you had to pay an expert for every little change. Products like Invisible Gold are enabling a new gold rush. Couldn't you use an inexpensive and easy way to sell products and reach new customers?
