You probably have already heard that Social Media is the new SEO, too. The reason isn’t rocket science. Major search engines are focused on delivering the best possible search experience to their users.
Otherwise, they cease to become “major” search engines. That being the premise — sites offering more relevant content get more visibility in the SERPs (Search Engine Results Pages).
Every website’s audience expects to be able to access it via any device that connects to the Internet. Therefore: it is no longer an option to have a responsive website. If you wish not to upset your visitors, allow them to visit a site on their phone that is meant for their phone. That, right there, will make them feel cared for and appreciated.
It is hard to create something on a limited, tiny screen. It is hard to give the same experience of flow and intensity on a 1024×768 or 420×380 screen compared to a laptop or desktop monitor.
Moreover, the most daunting thing about responsive design is the fear that we know that our visitors are giving us only so little attention because they are most likely walking, talking, running errands and making lunch all at the same time. (Not to mention the greasy and smudged screen and the glare on that glass.)
Making of stunning and attention retaining responsive websites How do we make amazing responsive website? With a simple approach.
Content - Cut out all the unnecessary content. Keep in mind that clutter looks bad on a smaller screen. The last thing you want to do is bombard a user’s phone with information. Keeping things clean, crisp and simple on your site, no matter what the device, will make all your visitors happy. Therefore, use this newly refined content on your tablet and desktop versions as well. Colour -Colour can surprise us and comfort us as we look at a design. For instance, blue is associated with trust, red with warnings, and bright colours just hard everybody’s eyes. Different colour combinations create unique experiences. Placing red text on blue background is a bad idea. But, placing white text on red background can be a radiating charm. Colour makes for one hell of an impression when it is combined with stunning layout and typography. Typography - Type sets the tone of the website. Big bulky fonts make us feel daring, fearless and adventurous. Thin serif fonts make us feel chic and elegant. It is crucial that the right font face and size are implemented within a design as without it is can be a complete and outer miss. Most importantly, it can become stale and boring, which you do not want if you wish to grasp and retina someone’s attention. Layout -It guides us within a website and makes us experiences it. It is the key in organizing and presenting content. If everything is placed in a non-uniform manner, then the reader is lost and confused; there is not direction of where the user should start looking/reading to where he should end.
Applying these principles to your design for your desktop, tablet and phone versions is capable of generating a powerful experience and impression of your website no matter how it is viewed.
These following examples are of knock out responsive designs.

It doesn’t really matter how much you study it, it’s almost impossible to get the perfect SEO (Search Engine Optimization) score for any long period of time.
Each search engine has their own algorithm to rank websites, and as if that wasn’t complicated enough, they change that algorithm frequently in order to perfect it and make sure that the same sites don’t hog up the top positions simply because they’ve figured out the x-factor in the algorithm to dodge other more popular sites that have the traffic, content mass, and extensive Internet presence enough to be ranked at the top.
I would probably need an endless number of articles to cover all the different aspects of the perfect SEO, and if I tried to do that, I would probably not be able to pinpoint it anyway.

In a new infographic from All Web Design Info, we get to take a look at web design history and how the Internet has evolved since it was first introduced to us.
The World Wide Web got introduced to the general public as late as in the 1990s. It feels like it’s been a lot longer since I started using this highly creative way of sharing, innovating and connecting. However, the Internet’s web design history is really fresh compared to many other things we are still using today.
HTML has become the backbone of the Internet itself, and it is apparently in its fourth generation right now. Many new and more effective languages have been added since HTML became popular, but it still serves as one of the main keys to creating a visually stunning and user friendly website. The second generation of the HTML language was introduced in order to stop confusion about the tags available. People had started to add their own tags, so between 1992 and 1994 the second generation of HTML was put together to unify the language and make it more simple.
