CBU TECH MINUTE Samsung announced a plethora of new products at its Unpacked event in San Francisco this week, so you can imagine what’s being discussed on today’s Vergecast. The much-anticipated Fortnite World Cup is finally happening this summer — and there’s going to be a lot of money up for grabs. Developer Epic detailed the upcoming e-sports event, which will culminate in a final tournament at an undisclosed location in New York from July 26th to the 28th. Photoshopping a meme is easy. But hunting through thrift stores, finding the perfect action figure to Frankenstein with another toy, designing and packaging it into a slightly off but believable product, and sneaking it onto a store shelf takes a little bit more work. Since 2015, Jeff Wysaski has been making fake signs and toys and leaving them out in the real world for people to find. Two-factor authentication is a good way to add an extra layer of security to online accounts. It requires the use of your smartphone, however, which is not only inconvenient, but it can be a problem if your phone is lost or breached. Hardware security keys can offer an extra layer of security to password-protected online accounts and, in turn, your identity. Security keys connect to your system using USB-A, USB-C, or Bluetooth, and they are small enough to be carried on a keychain (with the exception of Yubico’s USB-C nano key, which is so small that it’s safest when kept in your computer’s USB port).

Do you own a business in Fayette?

Many Fayette businesses advertise in local newspapers, and other publications, and some of them advertise online in various formats. Let's face it... We live in a rather small town. The likelyhood of any of our websites performing on the level of some of the fortune 500's is impossible. Our advertising ring hopes to help that problem, even if in a small way.

These ads don't only advertise our respective businesses to would-be customers, but also helps improve our overall SEO, and page-rank.

Why do I want backlinks?
Your website is what is known to web professionals as the "Money Site". In order for your website to perform better on search engines, as well as on pages that provide page-rank services, you need to have the most "Web-presence" possible. You could have the coolest website in the world, but if nobody links to it anywhere, then only the people who already know about it will find it.


What is a backlink?When a website gets a link from another site, it is counted as one backlink or inbound link for that website. For example, you just shared your business's URL in a post on a blog. If you had never published that link on that blog site before, you now have 1 backlink. If you are published on Facebook, you have 1 more backlink. For every major site, with a minimum of 1 link to you on their page, you get 1 more backlink in your score.


Backlinks are very useful to get a good rank in SERPs, if they are available with good "equity" or "link juice". This means that if a prominent site links to you (ie., Facebook, Twitter, etc.), you get a better score then you do if Joe Schmoe from down the street posts a link to your site, on his also little-known site.


Search engines and page-rank services alike look at how many backlinks you have, and what their value is. Our goal with this ad-ring is to mimic the "Link-Wheel" method for backlinks.
