Finger-Friendly Design: Ideal Mobile Touchscreen Target Sizes

Finger-Friendly Design: Ideal Mobile Touchscreen Target Sizes | SEO Tips, Advice, Help | Scoop.it
In darts, hitting the bulls-eye is harder to do than hitting any other part of the dartboard. This is because the bullseye is the smallest target. This same principle can also apply to touch targets on mobile devices.

 

Smaller touch targets are harder for users to hit than larger ones. When you’re designing mobile interfaces, it’s best to make your targets big so that they’re easy for users to tap. But exactly how big should you make them to give the best ease of use to the majority of your users? Many mobile developers have wondered this, and most have turned to the user interface guidelines provided by the platform developer for the answer.

The 2 User Metrics That Matter for SEO

The 2 User Metrics That Matter for SEO | SEO Tips, Advice, Help | Scoop.it
There's been a lot of talk lately about whether user data from analytics is a ranking factor. I argue that Google and Bing don't need to tap into analytics - they have 2 powerful user metrics in their own log data: (1) CTR and (2) Dwell Time.

 

In the wake of Google’s Panda updates, there’s been a lot of fear regarding user metrics and how they impact SEO. Many people are afraid that “bad” signals in analytics data, especially high bounce rates and low time-on-site, could potentially harm their rankings.

I don’t think Google is tapping into analytics data directly (I’ll defend that later), and I don’t think they have to. There are two user metrics that both Google and Bing have direct access to: (1) SERP CTR, and (2) “Dwell time”, and I think those two metrics can tell them a lot about your site.

There have been many mixed reviews about the latest Google Analytics UI. Putting the frustration of having to learn a new UI aside (here's a great guide to navigating the new Google Analytics interface), the new Google Analytics actually brings to the table great customization options.
