Improve Your Site

E-mail Marketing
Use HTML to give your emails a professional look. Use customizable templates to reduce your work effort. Alternatively, you can hire e-mail marketing services or even web designers to create interesting emails for you. Add a concise and appealing subject line to your emails and double check them for spelling and grammar mistakes.

To keep customers coming back to your site, make your emails attractive in appearance and content. Do not go overboard with lengthy messages. Just add short messages with interesting content. Add a ‘tip of the week’ or discount offer in your emails to ensure that subscribers read them instead of simply putting them in trash.

Design for Multiple Web Browsers
Your site should appeal to customers, irrespective of the web browser they use to access it. Make sure that your site works well in popular web browsers like Firefox and Internet Explorer. To make it work consistently across multiple browsers you may just have to tweak a bit for each browser.

Get Linked Up From Other Sites
Design a website that attracts other website owners to link up with you.

Responsive Website Design

When you hire a web design company for responsive website design needs, you should check whether your service provider follows the industry’s best practices while designing responsive websites. With touch sensitive devices, people are not going to be using pointing devices like mouse or touch pads for clicking actions. Here, the links or the buttons should therefore be big enough so that it is easy for the users to make their selections using their fingers without touching the adjacent buttons or links. Designing responsive websites is more about designing websites that are user friendly.

One of the reasons why we are going for responsive websites is due to the fact that internet users access the web using the following types of devices:

  1. Regular desktops and laptops without touch sensitive displays.
  2. Touch sensitive devices like tablets, laptops and desktops.
  3. Touch sensitive devices like iPhones, PDAs, etc., that have very small display.

In other words, there is great diversity in the nature of the devices used and most of the devices today have touch sensitive displays. Your focus here should therefore be on creating optimum browsing experience for your users that

UX Design

The easiest way to approach the planning phase for UX projects is to determine the approach you think ought to be taken for a project, then examine the constraints and amend the approach based on these constraints. This should enable you to determine budgets and timescales if they weren’t given to you by your potential client beforehand. UX projects that are well planned are easier to execute and offer a higher chance of succeeding than those that are managed on an ad-hoc basis For designers working in the ever-changing field of user experience, it’s always important to consider the fundamental principles of design. At many levels, the nature of the work that we do constantly shifts and evolves-whether we’re designing for new technologies or different contexts, ranging from apps for personal use to cross-channel experiences. When we’re called upon to solve design problems that we haven’t solved before, design principles provide a sound basis for devising innovative solutions. All of these trends have required us to look at design afresh and come up with new interaction models, design patterns,

EDU Links

As these pages are hosted by universities, the topics they have can span the gambit from sports to academics. Most professors will have a page that will list their classes and research. Their will be web pages for many classes as well as pages for the different departments and levels of administration. Everyone on campus from the bursar to the gym will get their own page that has a section with contact information and hours. Many universities will have a human resource section that includes a trusted source of suppliers who have promised to give discounts to community members. It may be useful to check your local university to see if you can get a link from their trusted resource page. In fact, trusted resources are often a giveaway. So many people know about this strategy that it’s value is often not that high from a Search Engine Marketing (SEM) perspective. At the same time, the price could not be better: free. For this reason, many companies that are targeting their local area, as opposed to Internet businesses, love to get promotions from their local university.

There are several other strategies for finding ways to get links

Website Design Software

There are numerous website design software packages that are available for purchase or that can be downloaded for free from the internet. Many argue that some free downloads will rival the best website design package that you can buy so a little research is necessary to determine which will best fit your need.

When choosing web design software, make certain that it will assist you in optimizing your website for search engine optimization (SEO). Choose website design software that will link your pages together internally so your visitors can navigate the site easily. This linking design in the website design software can also boost your website’s ranking.

The web design software package that you choose should assist you in the use of Meta Tags. Using the right keywords in the Meta Tags will also boost your website’s ranking. It is not always necessary to pay and SEO expert to optimize your website. There are many products that you can purchase to help you but if your website was designed for SEO you should see organic growth on most search engines. There are a number of directories that you can submit your website to which also helps

Web Design Mistakes

  1. Garish Colours

I would like to think that web developers have learned a lot about colour theory in the past 20 years, and for the most part, they have. The use of complimentary colours, often subtle or pastel hues that help add a visual flair to a design is now the norm.

Then there’s websites that think colour is the most important aspect of a website, more so than content. These websites then go and shove it in your face. Websites with bright red or garish green layouts. These websites are a visual nightmare and no web design expert would make these choices, so we can only hope they are caused by pushy clients.

  1. Too Many Fonts

The right choice of font can do a lot for a piece of text. It can be presented in a professional manner (Arial), perhaps with more character (Papyrus) or it can be cartoony to appeal to children (Comic Sans), whilst Sans Serif fonts are theoretically easier to read on-screens.

With all these possibilities it can be difficult to know which to choose. And what if you want a different meaning for each piece of text

Link Building Simplified

1. Know What Keywords to target

From your keyword research have your top 5 or 10 keyword phrases ready to use these in your link anchor text

(you have done keyword research, right? If not stop link building and go back a step or 3 … do your keyword research!  )

So for example I would use Web Design Australia as a link rather than (say) the straight URL webdesignspecialist.com.au or even the company name Web Design Specialist. Yes you want to rank well for your company name but unless its something that you know people are going to search for you’re better off concentrate on the keyphrases instead.

2. Focus your link building strategy

There’s a LOT of ways to build back-links.  Some of these are

  1. BLOGGING. (my favourite)
  2. directory submission (Dmoz, Yahoo Directory, etc)
  3. article submission (- like this one !!)
  4. press releases (PRWeb.com)
  5. social media outlets (FaceBook, Linked In)
  6. bookmarking sites (Digg, Reddit, Furl)
  7. Forums (niche forums)

 If time is limited (isn’t it always!) pick one or two from the list and really work at it. Focus on those 1 or 2 areas and build up an expertise in them.  (For me I find blogging gives the best return ). The key it

About Basics of Link Building

Relevant – If you want strong links to your site then you need relevant links from web pages that contain content which is relevant to your own website. For example you do not want to build links to a logo design website from a page about wooden fences! This is a bad move. You need links from relevant and authentic web pages, it’s that simple.

Keywords – The most important thing you need before beginning any seo / link building journey is a list of relevant keywords / search terms that people use to find websites such as your own. If you created your list of keywords / search terms in a matter of minutes you probably did it wrong. Many people make the mistake of picking the most obvious search terms / keywords but these terms usually have many competitors all fighting to get to the top of the Google and Yahoo listings. A new website stands little chance of building a strong online presence when they try to compete with the bigger websites that have been online for years. You need to be realistic about your chances of obtaining a position in the search engines

Design Links

Description on the Link: Use specific and relevant description on the link. The link description should brief all the information of the contents in it or the pages. This is very important, as the users will not waste their time clicking links after links to get the information they need. If you are using embedded link make sure that the link description helps them to predict about the destination the link corresponds.

Underlining Links: Underlining links can be avoided at some cases. It is true that the underlined links in color always states that it is clickable link. However, it is not important to have all the links underlined on the web pages. In case you have a web page with a list of menu, where clicking each title will take you to its corresponding destination. In these cases, you can avoid the links, as it will look too odd to find so many underlines on the web page.

Colors for Links: This is most important factor considering links. It is important that you have separate colors for visited and unvisited links on the website. The simple method to get this done is changing the contrast

Remove Footer Links in WordPress

1. Some Templates are simple. Footer Links can be found easily on footer.php ( I assumed you know how to locate your footer.php). Just delete the annoying Links inserted by the Theme Designer.

2. Some Templates are simple but it is coded. Usually Template Designers code their Links, They commonly used based64 encoder to hide their Links. There are two methods to follow.

a. Again, just delete the strange looking contents on the footer.php (cut and paste the deleted contents on a notepad for back up purposes in case failure) and update your theme. Check your website if its fine. If it fails proceed to the second method.

b. You need to decode the strange looking contents using base64 decoder. After you decoded the footer, replace the “coded contents” with the “decoded contents” and delete the undesirable links that you don’t like.

note: If it fails to decode, the designer used other coding method and It wishes you really not to mess with its design.

3. Some Templates are Tricky. Sometimes you can not see any signature links of the designer on footer.php, but instead they hide it inside Theme Functions (functions.php). Look

Create Website for Business Success

Domain Name

The best place to start the process is with a name for your site; a domain name. The most popular domains are dot-com names (.com). Also high on popularity are dot-net (.net), dot-org (.org), plus many others including dot-info (.info), dot-biz (.biz) and dot-us (.us).

Unless you are looking for a very unique name, most combinations of one or two common English words with the famed dot-com tag at the end are already claimed. This is where creativity may be required to find ways to make your domain name unique. To start searching for your domain name you’ll need to go to a domain registrar such as Network Solutions. Registering a domain name works essentially like a lease, granting you permission to use the name as long as you maintain the nominal annual fees to keep it registered.

A good domain name should be short, but still reflect your website; you want your visitors to remember their way back. Avoid using initials (unless they are as well known as CBS or NBC). Avoid hyphenation if possible or overly long names. A good domain name is memorable and easy on the tongue. The best

Before enrolling in a training center, a thorough background check of the institute is important. This check should comprise of all the available courses with their key features and timings to decide which course will be the best. It is also a good idea to gather more information about the establishment period of the institute, reading reviews about it on the internet and talking to students who have received training in the past from the same.

The classrooms at training institutes are usually crowded and paying attention to each and every student might become difficult. This is where the role of a teacher is important.

Create a Link in HTML and Change Its Colour

Basically, there is one tag format in HTML to create links. Once you’ve learnt it you will know how to create links within the same page, links to another page as well as make pictures into links.

The HTML code for a link is very simple and looks like that:

Hire a Graphic Designer

To better explain and understand the benefits of hiring a graphic designer, we present to you a few points.

Gives your brand a much-needed boost

Who says that every business has to stand out to thrive? For instance, locksmith is a small community and it gains trade from being the only proponent of an important service. For businesses that have tough competition, however, high quality branding is second to none.

A brand is all about how your customers perceive you. It is made from customer facing element of your business – the policy of your customer service, how you tackle their queries, the tone of copywriting, the name of your company, and – above all – how your brand looks.

The logo of your company, the website layout and marketing materials, chosen colours and font, give the first impression to visitors of what your business and company is like. A professional graphic designer knows how to manipulate these elements to make sure your customers perceives you in a positive way. Remember, while a weak brand is instantly forgettable, a strong brand is hard to forget.

Making Web Design Picture

  • Keep the Design Attractive but Minimal:

Simplicity is the key. You need to deliver your message to the masses which includes the people from different demographics with different mindset and preferences. So, you need a design that fulfills the aesthetic and informative demands of the target audience.

Descriptive websites trouble the visitors as they face difficulty in finding their desired content. Today, people adore the sites with minimum, but all-important information. Everything from colors selection, to contrasts, fonts, data fill forms, call-to-action buttons and pop-up windows (better to avoid) should stay minimal for improved user experience.

Parallax design is still trending. But as far as SEO is concerned, businesses with customized templates and single-page layouts can magnet more traffic and potential leads.

eCommerce sites are now coming with personalized content management systems that offer remarkable support to the site users; be it admin, vendors, and buyers. It also results in better user experience which, in turn, helps the marketers with the search engine optimization process.

Don’t forget to add search bar at the prominent place on homepage even if it’s not your eCommerce site. Often, I get irritated when I need to search

Increase Traffic and Page Rank

1 Search Engine Optimisation or SEO is only one way of getting the search engines to pick up that you are there. Something else that you must not neglect if you want your website to be noticed is obtaining links.

2 Your website is offering a service to your visitors – links provide them with other sites of interest which they may want to visit. Although the retail industry might say they want people to stay on their site, rather than going anywhere else, carefully chosen links may be able to get people even more interested in the product you are selling! You may have to think laterally!

In the eyes of a search engine there definitely seem to be good links and bad links. Good links will get you higher up the page rankings and onto the top of the listings, bad links at best will be ignored and at worst could actually could against you and your site be listed much lower.

– A good link is one from a site which has high relevance to yours, and which is has a good page rank.

– A bad link is one from
