How To Balance SEO And UX ?

It’s been a long standing battle, the feud between if balancing SEO and UX is even possible. 2017 was a year where the user experience online and on mobile devices was vastly important. UX and SEO in their own ways have changed how we view the digital experience. But in many ways they can’t work together without taking something from the other. Which is why many designers and experts in the field have said over and over again that UX and SEO will never be able to find the perfect balance. We believe there is a way to balance this system, it might take some adjustments and a bit of a learning curve, but there is a way that brands can benefit equally from both of these elements. Why We Need Both SEO & UX SEO generally are the words that are scattered across blog posts and websites to make your brand pop up in the web search feature of Google and other search engines. When you include enough of these words your SEO ranking will rise higher and higher. This brings in more individuals to view your blog and potential customers. UX on the other hand stands for user experience, the features on a website that focus on making the customer or reader more comfortable with navigating the site. This can be anything from the site layout to customization features that make the user want to come back again and again to use the surface. You’ll find these functions in online stores and blogs! How Design Plays A Part Having smart design when it comes to your brand’s mobile app or website can completely change how the interactions between SEO and UX exist together. Having a meaningful experience and by also keeping your digital space simple, you’ll find that the balance almost comes naturally. For example, keeping your website simple, using easy to find navigation, maybe even a light box to prompt interaction with a newsletter or to showcase the latest blog. The blog will then have specific SEO keywords that boost how many people see the content. It all can work together to create an end product that isn’t cluttered or confusing when it comes time for the user to interact with the space. Everything Is Mobile Branch out! Start developing an app to increase just how much you can take advantage of the UX qualities on your website. By having an app or even reaching out on social media with your brand, you’ll be really be able to connect with the people who care about your brand the most. You would be able to offer exclusive blogs and other content you might find useful when it comes to your community. Offering personalized experiences that hit on keywords that will boost SEO rankings will also be possible when you outstretch your reach in the tech world. How To Prevent Invisibility Online There are specific ways to increase visibility without completely disregarding UX design. For example, when you have an infinite scroll on your blog, it might seem UX friendly and it typically is, but it can also make the rest of your keywords invisible through SEO. To prevent an issue like this, make sure you are aware of what certain UX designs can do to prevent SEO...

Make Money in Your Spare Time by Doing Online Tasks

Are you looking for a way to earn more money? Well, you could pick up some shifts at your local Starbucks, mow your neighbors’ lawns or even walk their dogs. On the other hand, you can simply fire up your laptop, sit back on your couch and earn some money online. Ok, it will take a little bit more effort than that. However, thanks to the huge reach of the internet, there are now more opportunities for ordinary people to earn some extra cash from the comfort of their homes than ever. The rise of the “gig-economy” Even though some people still doubt it – yes – you can make extra money online. The Internet economy is actually booming at the moment. According to a new survey conducted by The Pew Research Center, last year, almost 25% of people in the United States made some money using the Internet. Some people sell their personal things on sites like eBay and Craigslist full-time while others use their computers to do some extra work. In fact, more than 5% of people in the US say they’ve done some work – like taking surveys – in their spare time and during work hours. And filling out random inquiries isn’t the only way to make money in your spare time. You can type reports for others or write product descriptions for ecommerce merchants, among other things. If you’re interested in putting in some extra work, here a few things you can do in your spare time… Rent out parking space/rooms This is perhaps the easiest “job” on our list. Let’s say you have a driveway outside your house that you don’t use often. Then simply head over to a site such as Just Park, and rent it to a random person. If you live near the airport or some tourist attraction in your city, your driveway will be in high demand. Conversely, if you have a spare room in your house, renting it for a few days can be seriously lucrative. Although Airbnb is known as the go-to service for renting out rooms, houses or apartments, there are lots of options out there. For instance, if you have some land, Glamping allows you to rent it for people to camp on. User-test websites Did you know that you can get paid simply for testing and review websites? Here we have a website called UserTesting that pays people $10 for every completed test. In some cases, you might need to download an app, test it out, and give your feedback. Other tests require you to complete a certain set of tasks and record your commentary into a microphone. And don’t worry, you don’t need an actual external microphone, the built-in mic on your laptop will do. Plus, the website you’re visiting will explain how to complete tasks, record the commentary and upload it to UserTesting’s servers… Search for items online According to InternetLiveStats, Google processes around 3.5 billion inquiries per day. So just how often do you look up something on Google? Probably a few dozen times a day. By using a site like Qmee, you’ll be able to earn some money for all of those searches. You just need to enter your search terms, like usual, and Qmee will automatically add a search...

JavaScript Frameworks That Changed How We View The Web

JavaScript Frameworks That Changed How We View The Web

According to statistics posted in w3tech.com, currently approximately 89% of websites use JavaScript as their main client-side programming language. JavaScript is a lightweight language that many programmers use to build great sites and application that are compatible with search engines, operating systems, and devices. And as a result, various frameworks with different features have been adopted to achieve the highest level of abstraction.  In this article, I’m going to discuss different JavaScript frameworks that changed the way we view the web. 1. Angular JS 1.X Angular JS 1.X is one of the most preferred options when it comes to selecting the best framework. This is because it is maintained by Google and supported by most developers. It is an extended HTML (hypertext markup language) with two way data binding that displays changes made to view instantly in the model without the developer intervening. The two-way approach also helps the developer spend less time and effort coding, translating and updating Document Object Model (DOM). This framework also supports caching among other processes consequently reducing the load from server CPUs (central processing unit). It means the server only attends to static files and answers the API (application programming interface) calls. Another interesting aspect of angular is the fact that it builds websites and applications that have withstood the test of time. It has made testing and debugging much easier than ever. Karma, Jasmine, and Protractor are some of the unique testing tools that come with this framework. Other pros of the angular framework include: Model view controller and model view ViewModel (MVVM) architectural patterns Use of directives that ensure scripts and HYMP (Howard Yen Monet Page) pages are organized However, using angular is time-consuming especially for those not familiar with Model View View Model (MVVM) architectural patterns or the directives. Although the scopes are very simple, it is very difficult to debug. 2. Angular 2.x (now 4.x) Released in September 2016, Angular 2 was a rewrite which introduced TypeScript (compiled with JavaScript).  TypeScript offers great benefits to developers familiar with statically-typed languages like C# and Java. In March 2017 the fourth version was released, skipping the third one. This was done to avoid issues with semantic version. It is worth noting that Angular 2.x is very different from 1.x and they are not compatible with each other. As a result, one can never upgrade from Angular 1.x. Unlike angular 1, angular 2 has a larger code base. Despite being developed by Google, the big G does not use it. 3. Vue.js In spite of being reasonably new Vue.js is one of the fastest growing frameworks that serve as a quick and easy solution not only for applications but also interface development. Developed by Evan You, a former staff of Google, its inception has been used by numerous Chinese firms including Sina, Weibo and Alibaba. Its small size is one of the significant features; it is only 18kb after zipping. Despite its tiny size, this framework can match products of large brands like Facebook and Google which are Angular 2 and React.js enabled as well as outperform them. Unlike many JavaScript frameworks, Vue integrates an element’s structure, logic, and style all in one single file which makes flexible components that can be reused in other projects. It also adds several small reactive...

Facebook Organic Reach Isn’t Dead Yet

Facebook Organic Reach Isn’t Dead Yet

Facebook regularly evaluates its algorithms for how business pages get into users’ news feeds organically. In the end, Facebook seeks to provide a great experience for its users so they keep coming back, which means keeping the news feed relevant. Each time Facebook announces a change, marketers tend to get upset, but really, it’s a great chance to reevaluate your social strategy and the quality of information you’re producing. Recently, Facebook announced its Explore Feed and is testing putting all page content under this feed in four countries. While it gave many companies pause, it’s important to remember this is currently in beta mode. Facebook page managers should instead take this opportunity to rewrite their overall social media marketing strategy.  Content is King It’s probably nothing new for you to hear this, but Facebook’s decision to feature you or not in a user’s news feed comes down to the quality of the content you post and its relevance to your audience. The number of likes, shares and comments tells Facebook’s complicated algorithm how relevant your content is. Additionally, Facebook considers how often that user has interacted with your page in the past. If you’ve earned many likes, comments and shares, you’re more likely to make it into that user’s organic feed because Facebook knows that the user appreciates and enjoys your content. Post at the Right Time Every page’s audience is different so I can’t give you a template for when to post, but there’s a pretty easy way to find out. Post varying types of content at different times of the day throughout a month. Aim to post 10 each of photos, links and videos to have information to analyze for each post type. Now, you can go into your insights and see when you got the most interaction and on what types of posts. You’ll also be able to see when your audience is on Facebook under your insights tab. You can try tactics that might seem counter-intuitive at first, like posting when the fewest amount of your followers are online. By doing this, you aren’t in competition with as many posts from other pages as Facebook’s algorithm picks how much page information to let through. On the other hand, it might not work for you because Facebook’s algorithm also favors newer content so if you post too far ahead of your peak times for your audience to be on Facebook, your content can become stale before it has a chance to reach your audience. As you test and analyze, keep in mind, that there may be a different time of day that works for each day of the week. For example, you might find that late afternoons are most effective for Monday through Thursday, but Fridays are best in the evening and mornings are best on Saturday and Sunday. Don’t look at just one day and assume that all days of the week are equal. Post types Facebook provides you insights into what types of posts do best on your page. Some pages might find videos earn the most reach, while others might find photos resonate with their audience. Facebook will even tell you what your best performing post type is. Ask Questions When you post something to a business page, Facebook shows that content to...

Free Web Hosting vs. Paid Web Hosting

Free Web Hosting vs. Paid Web Hosting

It might seem to many people that weighing up whether to select a free service or a paid service is a very easy decision. You might question why you would pay for something that you could actually get for free. However, it is not as simple as that. It doesn’t mean that you get the same level of service and set of features just because they are both providing a hosting service. It is a bit like comparing different travel options, you could get from Edinburgh to London in Business Class on a plane or you could get a cheaper bus that takes considerably longer. But they both get you to and from your destinations as required. The service will be completely different and you know which one you would rather go with. So if you have that in mind when you are deciding whether or not to go with free or paid hosting then you will have an idea of the gulf between the two services. Free hosting is perfect for those who do not have the budget to pay for hosting but it does not offer nearly as much as paid hosting. Just to give you an idea of the differences, here are the main limitations and drawbacks of free hosting: Customer Support Paid hosting plans will offer great levels of support (SiteGround is a great example) when you need and usually whenever you need it. So if your website goes down in the middle of a crucial time or you accidentally delete something and don’t know how to rectify the situation, you will have some technical help to get you back on track. With free hosting you are not entitled to any kind of customer support, so any problems that you may come across, you need to resolve by yourself. Or worse still, you will need to pay a techie to help you out and it won’t be cheap (probably a fair bit more than your annual fee for a shared hosting plan). Domain Name With free hosting you usually take the subdomain of the hosting service so it will be a long address with their name in it and you either take the one they give you or pay to use your own. If you are looking for a catchy, easily memorable name for your website then this is not what you are getting with free hosting. Storage and Bandwidth Two things that you definitely cannot do without if you have a website is storage and bandwidth. And all hosting types will offer some of each but with free hosting, you are probably going to get a considerable amount less of it. If you are not building a very big site, aren’t going to upload much content and won’t get much traffic on your website then you might be ok with free hosting. But most people, particularly if they are building a website that is for business will need more than the restricted amounts that free hosting services offer. Ads Free hosts often use websites to display ads so that they can generate money from this method. Whilst that might not sound that bad, think about when they plaster loads of annoying adverts that are completely unrelated to your business. Features and Functionality With free hosting...

Saving YouTube Videos Using Movavi Screen Recorder

Among the many YouTube videos that you watch there are undoubtedly some that you watch more than once, either because you find them just that entertaining or because you want to refer to them due to the information they contain. Similarly you may come across other videos that you’d like to be able to watch on other devices – some of which may not be able to access the internet. If you could save YouTube videos you would be able to watch them offline and on any devices as many times as you like – but as you probably know YouTube doesn’t give you a link to ‘save’ or ‘download’ its videos. That is why you should use Movavi Screen Recorder instead, as it will not only supply you with a workaround: Record the YouTube videos in question directly from your screen so that you can then save them. The next time you want to save a YouTube video, don’t play it but instead launch Movavi Screen Recorder. As soon as you do you can click and drag your mouse cursor to draw a frame over the YouTube video and set it to record just that area of your screen. After the frame has been drawn you can adjust and refine it, so that it encompasses the YouTube video more precisely. In the event that you want to play and record the video in full screen, you can instead click anywhere on your screen and expand the list under ‘Capture Area’ in the interface that appears. Under the ‘Full Screen’ section of that list you should see your monitor, and you can select it so that Movavi Screen Recorder will record footage from the entire screen. To ensure it is set to record the audio track from the YouTube video you want to save, check that the ‘System Audio’ icon is highlighted. If you need to toggle the icon just click on it once. While you’re doing so, you should also make sure the ‘Microphone’ icon isn’t highlighted, as you don’t want to inadvertently record sounds from it that may interfere with the YouTube video audio. That is all that is required to set up Movavi Screen Recorder, and to start recording you can press ‘REC’ then play the YouTube video within the following 3 seconds. Once the recording is done click ‘Stop’, and go over the video in the preview window and trim out any parts you don’t need. When you’re satisfied, click ‘Save As’ and select a format to save your video. Rather than manually starting and stopping the recording, you could automate it instead – and by clicking on the ‘alarm clock’ icon you can set a timer or schedule the recording. As you can see it is easy to save YouTube videos in this fashion, but the fact of the matter is that Movavi Screen Recorder can do a lot more. Try to make it a point to explore its features, as you’ll find they expand your options even further and allow you to record a diverse range of videos according to any...
