Our sweet Rachel has passed away

Rachel Eileen von Tungeln, 16.

May 18, 2000 – April 8th, 2017

Rachel von Tungeln was the daughter of Kat Wasabi, owner of Geek Media.

Rachel passed away on Saturday night at home under the kind care of Denver Hospice as a result of complications of Juvenile Batten Disease. Rachel was diagnosed in 2009.

With the help of our customers and customers of The Good Geeks, we held 3 Road Races (Team Rachel Race 4 A Cure) and raised over $100,000 for Batten Disease Research. Rachel is forever free of her disease, blindness, and her wheelchair.

Rachel is survived by her Mom, sister Julie, and brothers, London and Boston. We miss her terribly.

A memorial fundraiser has been set-up through a close family friend.

WordPress 4.6 Upgrade Imminent

Just wanted to give a heads up to our customers that many sites are being upgraded to Wordpress 4.6 within the next couple of days.  Wordpress 4.6 is the latest and most stable version of Wordpress to date.  It is very important to keep your Wordpress websites up to date to prevent potential site hacks or attacks.  We've been cleaning up several sites that have outdated plugins and Wordpress versions which have not only inserted malicious code but deleted and modified files.

Give us a shout if you have any questions or need help cleaning your site up.

Google Adwords Custom Scheduling

Geek Media decided to put together a mini series of short articles to give you some of the highlights of the awesome features that Google Adwords has to offer.

We decided to start with custom ad scheduling because it's very effective and a money saver for clients with a smaller budget. Google Adwords automatically sets your ads to run 24/7 and will spend your budget until it runs out. With ad scheduling you can specify that certain ads only run certain days of the week or certain times of the day or only your during business hours. Letting your ads run 24/7 is okay for businesses who have giant ad budgets but scheduling ads can be a great tool for many reasons:
