Keys to a Better Website

From Navigation to Site Design

A primary implication of a well-organized website is the fact the end user keeps coming back. A website is created for a purpose unless created for personal use. An example of this would be a portfolio website where you would want the end user to view the amazing work that you have created.

Five Rules to Follow in Web Design

Placement Awareness & Navigation

Extra attention should always be paid to every minute detail of your website to optimally serve its purpose. This is a major pet peeve of mine. I, at times, spend so much effort on the tiniest of details that I can become carried away. In the end, though, the finished product always goes beyond my expectations.

Wonderful CSS Tools

Web Fonts & CSS Fixer Uppers

All web designers and developers should strive to simplify and code better CSS. Simplifying the code means faster load times and less bandwidth use. Imagine you are a large company that has to pay for each individual byte of bandwidth used. By simplifying the code involved and getting rid of the white space, the company could save hundreds of thousands, if not millions of dollars a year. That's big money, even if it goes to the pockets of the CEO, less money 'wasted'.

Good and Bad in Flash World

The Known & Unknown Dangers

Flash based sites were the rave at one time or another. Luckily with new technology such as HTML5, they will soon to be non-existent. Here is a quick rundown on the good and bad of Flash-based websites and why they failed.

On the other hand, when it comes to the internet we have numerous options to generate traffic to our websites without having to spend any money in the process.

Five Ways to Keep Them Coming Back

A lot of successful websites depend on returning visitors to account for a major part of their traffic. Returning visitors are easier to convert into paying customers because the more often they return to a site, the more trust they have in that site.

Good Web Design Practices

From Scripting to the W3C

Your website is where your business resides... in these days it is your online calling card. This makes it an important part of practicing good design to make certain your site reaches the largest amount of visitors and sells to as many people as possible.

Great Ways to Increase Traffic

Trading Links & Forums

Internet. Business. Profit. To fully integrate all of these words into a successful merging you will need another word. Traffic. Every article you will find about making your site or company successful would always include the importance of generating traffic.

Elements to Avoid on Your Website

Don't Do It

Being a web designer, I design my websites to give my visitors the greatest use of ease, the best impression, and a welcoming experience. It matters not if the product or message is a phenomenal thing, changing the end users life forever. If the websites I design were poorly done, I wouldn't be able to sell my message or product as the end user would be driven off by the poor design. First impressions are everything.

Choosing a Hosting Company

Where to Begin

With thousands of web hosting companies in the market it can be difficult if not impossible to know which website hosting companies truly provide an excellent hosting solution at an excellent price. When you have an established domain name with a good web hosting company, you can get reports on your traffic and which of your pages your customers are visiting most often, as well as many other statistics.

How to Improve Website Usability


Usability is one of the main factors in designing a website. In fact... it is the main factor for anything technology based. The world is becoming more and more simple minded as the days pass by and to keep up with this we need an easier usability construct to allow others to join in the fun.

Make it Easy to Purchase


Convincing the end user of your website to purchase your product can be a hard thing to master... but what if the end user is convinced to buy but doesn't know how to buy? No matter how good you may be at convincing, the end user's purchase will still be lost if they find the process cumbersome.

Must Have Website Features


Some things we have to have within our websites. Knowing what they are is an essential part of designing. Knowing how to utilize them to the best of our ability is even better.

Sitemap Importance


Site-maps. These have often been considered redundant within the process of website creation. This is even truer today as the search engines have found more interesting ways to categorize websites.

Keywords in Page Titles


It is recommended to use keywords in page titles itself. This title tag is different from a Meta tag, but it's worth considering it in relation to them. Whatever text one places in the title tag (between the and portions) will appear in the title bar of browsers when they view the web page. Some browsers also append whatever you put in the title tag by adding their own name, as for example Microsoft's Internet Explorer or OPERA.

Improving Sales Through Your Website


Those that have had marketing experience online know that the lifeblood of an online business is the traffic it receives. The more end users you have visiting your site, the more sales you will gain. Below are some ways to tweak your website to improve sales without the need of traffic to your website.

Importance of Search Engines


It is the search engines that finally bring your website to the notice of the prospective customers. When a topic is typed for search, nearly instantly, the search engine will sift through the millions of pages it has indexed about and present you with ones that match your topic. The searched matches are also ranked so that the most relevant ones come first.

Joomla 1.6 and SEO


After the release of Joomla! 1.6 we have 2 new SEO options under the - Site - Global Configuration menu. The options that are present are as follows... Search Engine Friendly URLs, Use Apache mod_rewrite, Adds Suffix to URL, Unicode Aliases, and Include Site Name in Page Titles. Each of these options can affect your search engine rankings. This blog post will give you the best options to either enable or disable with a detailed reason as to why each option should be chosen.

Make Pages Search Engine Friendly


It is pointless to build a website that is lacking search engine optimization. Your site will be on page 23 of the search engine listings and you will never have any solid visitors. Read on to have a greater understanding as to why we need search engine optimization.

Things to Consider Before You Build


The vast majority of people who follow the latest trends, be it fashion, sports, or the kind of car one drives. Websites in this day and age have become a necessity to most everyone. Businesses and individuals, even young adults have created websites with their respective purposes, be it for profit, or for entertainment.

CSS3 and the Future


We happen to be at a very exciting time in web design history. CSS3 has now been implemented and the majority of our web browsers are utilizing all the creativity it brings to the table. We won't be adept to use everything that CSS3 has to offer for a couple of years but it is important to be aware of what the future brings and be ready to start implementing the programming into our websites for those that utilize the Web Standard browsers (i.e. Firefox, Safari, Google Chrome).

Why Hire a Website Designer?


Most online business owners start with limited funds or none at all. They wind up having to do everything on their own like the prep of the product, the building of the website to cater to their marketing needs, and the development of a marketing strategy. As time goes by and the business expands, they may find that what they had created may not cover all sides of the equation, and may have to take some time to get the site up to date within current technology.

Good Planning Means Revenue


With a well thought out web design, you can build a site that creates multiple streams of revenue. Many websites turn into online wastelands because the planning was never put into the design from the beginning. In time, the webmaster becomes unmotivated to update these sites and they become lost in... cyberspace.

Importance of Good Design


In this day and age your website is your online calling card. It is a virtual representation of you, your business ethics, and your professionalism. When an end user wants to do business with you online, they do not have the connection they would have if they were at your local shop. This is where good design comes into play.

Website Customization


Customizing a website to fit to the standards of today can be a cumbersome task. The amount of technology available on the internet is tremendous and to stay up the current times is not as easy as it used to be. Here are a few things to look out for when designing a website to look professional.

Good SEO Versus Bad SEO


More people are using the internet to develop businesses. By using the internet you can create and allow people to know about the things you have to offer. But in order to run a business successfully you will need to increase traffic to your website. This is where search engine optimization comes into play.

Know Your Audience


Understanding the types of people who visit your site is a rather important task. This information can help you enhance your site to suit the needs of your visitors. By enhancing your site, you gain more returning visitors and their loyalty.

The Right Time to Redesign


Technology has come a long way over the years and that is no different when it comes to website design. If you think it is time to re-design your site then read below. It may or may not be.

HTML5 & Forms


It has been 12 long years since the core language of the world wide web is finally undergoing a huge revision with the release of HTML5. Although still in beta; HTML 5 has web designers and programmers alike squirming in their seats to get a hold of the new features it provides.
