Who We Are

USC was started in January 2005 by Ed Cooper & Chuck Simmons. The two realized that there was a large demand by Unifour individuals & businesses for professional web and computer solutions. We have been serving the Hickory, Conover & Newton, North Carolina area for over 15 years. Chuck left the company in 2012 to pursue other opportunities.

Ed had a stroke in 2017. His stroke was in his cerebellum which controls movement and speech. He's in a wheelchair and doesn't speak clearly. He communicates with clients primarily through texts and email. His hemispheres (the parts of the brain responsible for cognition) were not affected. In 2018 friends and family relocated the contents of his office on Union Square to his house under a mile and a half away. He still works on computers. He has three people that do work for him. Regrettably he no longer makes service calls or gives voice support though. His people make service calls on his behalf. He moves slower than he did prior to his stroke but charges what he did when he was more able-bodied. Contact us for a free quote.

Search Engine Optimization

Search Engine Optimization

Search Engine Ranking Position (or SERPs) are influenced by a variety of factors: the age of the domain name, how many sites link to yours, the quality of HTML code on your site and most importantly the content on the web page. Search Engine Optimization is the art of leveraging your online strengths and eliminating your weaknesses so that search engines and customers can better hear your message.

Web Analytics

Web Analytics

So you have a website - great! Do you know if and when people are coming to your site? A simple javascript counter won't tell you what your most and least favorite pages on your website are. Without access to website analytics you are operating blindly without the opportunity to create a better experience for your website visitors.

Domain Name Registration

Domain Name Registration

Whether you choose Union Square Computers to design your website or not we advise you to register your own domain name. Your domain name is your internet DBA. When you let someone else register your domain name you are letting that person control your online business identity. If your webmaster were to go out of business, change jobs, disappear or die your domain name has a very real risk of being lost to cybersquatters.

Our FAQ Frequently Asked Questions

Please email your computer's make and model and a description of what your computer is or isn't doing. If it's a Mac please send your Apple's Serial Number. Apple hardware is very specific. A serial allows us to see "what's under the hood".

We operate under the "no fix, no charge" philosophy so only charge for solutions, not for trying hard.

Please email us. Most of the time we can schedule an appointment within 24 hours.

There's little chance the owner can get out there but he can dispatch an employee. Please email us and let us know when you'd like to schedule and description of your issue so the right person is sent.

Weekends can be dicey as far as dispatching someone.
