In today’s world, the way in which people access the Internet is vastly different from just ten years ago. We have become a society on the go-go-go, and we like our Internet the same way. In America today, nearly half of all adults have a smart-phone; around 25% use smart-phones as their primary means of access to the Internet.
So what does this mean for your business in this ever changing Internet landscape? To put it bluntly, you need a mobile presence on the web, and you need it now. Luckily, Millennium can help you sort through the options.

At the recent 2012 Maryland Tourism & Travel Summit, the Howard County Tourism & Promotion website, visithowardcounty.com, was voted Best Web Site.

In the broadest terms, Structured Data is information that has been organized in a certain way to be interpreted by someone or something. Accounting information stored in a spreadsheet or website content stored in an online database are both examples of Structure Data.
When it comes to SEO, Structured Data refers to organizing information on a webpage using data attributes (schemas) applied to specific elements that allow search engines to understand that information better. Listings of events, information about a blog author, or product reviews are examples of elements that can benefit from Structured Data.
