The Internet Marketing Ladder

Building Up Your Business Online
By: Jim Warholic

Marketing for the twenty-first century requires an understanding of the Internet both from the B2B and B2C perspective, as well as an understanding of the challenges facing businesses online today.

A business presence online today requires much more than just the website presence. It requires telling your marketing message in more ways than one, and in various marketing and advertising channels. The Web days of simply putting up a website and thinking you are going to get thousands of visitors are long gone. Yes, it is possible to attain world wide Internet recognition, but you will most likely have to climb a ladder with lots of hard work to get there.

Get your business found online with Internet marketing services from Professional Web Services today.

Centered Internet Marketing Online With CSS

Special Website Projects Require Special CSS Programming

One would think it would be easy to center a single object like a picture or graphic image in the center of a web page using Cascading Style Sheets, CSS div tag and no tables. There are many ways of centering text or objects in a horizontal mode but not in both the vertical and horizontal modes at the same time, that works completely across most all brands of Web browsers.

I spent a couple of hours using the search engines for research on a special project that I thought would be easy. Finally after looking at maybe 50 websites and doing special searches I finally hit pay dirt.

For those of you that want to dig right in, here is the code I found from an old archive at CSS – Vertical and Horizontal Centering.

I did a few modifications to the original html code in the header section

<style title="Default" media="screen" type="text/css">
#center {
width: 200px;
height: 300px;
position: absolute;
top: 50%;
left: 50%;
margin: -150px auto auto -100px;
border: 4px double black;
background-color: white;
text-align: center;
body {
font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
font-size: 12px;
font-weight: bold;
background-image: url('your image');
#center p {
margin-top: 2px;
margin-bottom: 2px;

The div code in the body would look like this:

<div id="center">Professional Web Services</div>

Internet Marketing Center

Here is a link to Jim Warholic, Centered Online Internet Marketing web page. Change the window size and notice the picture and text inside the predefined area, always remains centered in the middle of the browser window both horizontally and vertically.

Some of the CSS keys are: first define the box size in width and height measurements, then you position it absolute 50% from the top and 50% from the left, then you set your margins for the top, right, bottom, and left to be: top = -1/2 height, right = auto, bottom = auto, and left = -1/2 width.

Other CSS styles can be added for flavor.

Have fun.
