It’s Clickable, But Does it LOOK Clickable?

Clickable elements of your website should look clickable

We can do all kinds of cool stuff with web pages these days. In fact, there isn’t much you can’t make a web page do with one of the many web programming languages out there. But one thing you should never do is to change the way the mouse cursor reacts to clickable links. [Tweet This] By default, your mouse cursor is designed to appear in certain ways based on what it’s hovering over. Most of the time, it’s an arrow. When you mouse over editable text areas, it changes to look like a tall letter “I”. When the computer is thinking or waiting, the cursor might turn into an hourglass. And when you mouse over links, the cursor turns into a hand with the index finger pointing up. Continue Reading

All You Need to Succeed is More Content

more content Both search engines and web searchers love content. It’s how they learn, understand and, ultimately, make decisions about many things, the most important of which is whether or not to do business with you. We’ve recently seen a resurgence in content marketing, and that’s good. The focus has been on generating great content that meets searchers’ needs. But it also tends to get people to focus on creating higher volumes of content versus higher value. That’s a mistake. It’s not more content you need, it’s quality content. [Tweet This] It doesn’t have to be a lot, but it must be valuable to the searcher. Better to write fewer, better words than many useless words. If you focus on the number of words, or the number of pieces of content, you’ll likely fail at content marketing. However, when you focus on the message your content will never fail.

Don’t Spam Your Image Optimization

Optimize images but don't spam. Image optimization is often an overlooked part of SEO, but for some reason images often get the crap spammed out of them by SEOs trying to improve their organic page rankings. Regardless of whether you’re optimizing an image for image search or optimizing key parts of an image for optimization of the page it resides on, a more subtle approach is needed. When you place images into a web page you have the option of adding an alt attribute. This attribute is a place to add alternative text that will be viewable when the image doesn’t display. The purpose of the alt text is to describe the image. Period. Continue Reading
