Responsive Web Design Infographic: Benefits and Pitfalls

Responsive Web Design Infographic: Benefits and Pitfalls | visualizing social media | Scoop.it

People are increasingly using mobile devices like tablets and smartphones to browse the Web. The variety of screen sizes, resolutions, and platforms people use to access webpages has given birth to the rise of responsive Web design, where developers create one single site to function properly across all devices instead of producing multiple dedicated site designs to work with particular screen sizes and platforms.


While responsive Web design can be a great way for developers to ensure that their site is compatible with all devices, implementing it instead of targeted Web designs also comes with certain drawbacks. Here is an overview of the changing climate of Web devices, followed by tips for evaluating whether or not you should implement a responsive design.

How Social Media Impacts SEO and Site Ranking: infographic

How Social Media Impacts SEO and Site Ranking: infographic | visualizing social media | Scoop.it

Search engine optimization has not been dependent on a minimal number of factors for a long time now, such as number of times a keyword appeared on a page, and it continues to become a more complex web of on and off-page factors every month. One of the more recent factors that has had an impact on search ranking is social media.


This infographic breaks down ways that social media influences the visibility of your website in search results, including:


  • Social media can help search engines find and index your content faster
  •  Likes, shares, retweets, etc. indicates to search engine that content is new and interesting, often leading to a temporary increase in rankings
  • Your content will increase in search results for people connected to you
  • Increases domain authority and the number of inbound links to your website

Venkatesh - if I am able I give my site as much media support as I can. As a social media trainer I need to 'try out' media before I can teach others to use it and give an insight into which is useful and which is not. So I tend to put my site and what I am doing out on the various social media platforms at least twice a day - I don't over emphasise my site because that can be counter productive (people switch off if all they see from you is self-promotion) and so it is keeping your presence alive but not switching off potential clients by constant ME, ME, ME. I perform both SEO services and social media training for others (see - just a bit of self promotion LOL)

SEO and Social Media why it works and how it helps your ranking. Excellent infograpic.

Stephanie Smetana's curator insight, July 9, 2013 4:17 PM

This infographic is a great way to depict many of the articles I've previously pointed out that cover SEO and social media. It is almost easier to explain the relationship in an image format, especially for those who don't have a background in SEO.

 

There are many other factors that go into how much social media truly affects SEO, so there is more to be explained after this. But this is a great introductory image. It also emphasizes the speed with which social media makes an impact.

10 Tips To Build A Responsive Website [Infographic] | visualizing social media | Scoop.it

Want your website to look great on smartphones, tablets, PCs and even TVs? Learn how to go fully responsive.


The Web and the mobile browsers remain one of the top ways that users interact with websites and if they have trouble on their smartphone, there is a good chance they are not coming back.

That’s where responsive design can help.

Responsive design is a concept where you build your website once and then format it so it can adapt to any screen size that accesses it. Designers use HTML5 and CSS to build the sites and set parameters so the content will resize itself whether the user is in vertical or horizontal viewing mode, on a tablet, desktop or smartphone or even a screen as large as a television...

Why a Mobile Website Is Part of Any Business Plan [INFOGRAPHIC]

Why a Mobile Website Is Part of Any Business Plan [INFOGRAPHIC] | visualizing social media | Scoop.it

57% of mobile web users will end up not recommending a website if they had any trouble visiting it on their phones. If a business has a bad website for mobile devices, 34% of visitors will end up going to a competitors’ website.

According to WebpageFX, businesses should use CSS for the layout and not tables. They should code with XML or XHTML, and put all the important information on the top of the landing page. ”Mobile website users are usually busy doing something else like waiting in line, walking through town, or spending time out with friends,” reports WebpageFX. “Their main focus is not necessarily your website so information needs to be quick and easy to access.”

By 2015, mobile sales in the U.S. are expected to reach $31 billion (right now they’re at $6.7 billion). Businesses have to get ready and have a solid mobile site, since that’s where many sales will start taking place...

Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Pinterest – Which Social Network Won 2012? | visualizing social media | Scoop.it

2012 was a huge year for social media.

Facebook’s IPO and Instagram buyout dominated the headlines. Twitter is noweverywhere, and celebrated the tail-end of the year by reaching 200 million active users. LinkedIn has strengthened its position as the premier business social network while shaking off Facebook’s share price nightmare to continue to trade near its stock peak. And Pinterest had one of the best twelve months of any social network, ever.


But which of these social behemoths experienced a year that they’re never going to forget?

PR shops need to be able to ideate, create, collaborate (internally and with media), copyright (yes, the client can own what the media publishes), publish, orchestrate, marshal, and measure their stories"

I really enjoyed this article due to the simplicity of the inforgraphic showcasing the information in a colourful and engaging way. As there are several types of social media such as facebook, twitter and tumblr (blogs) having media stratergy for each one is important. All of them have different communiction features and different target audiences. Kamal has chosen well and agreeing with emma that this really links well with the week 7 lecture topic.
Christine IMC's curator insight, September 26, 2013 7:15 PM

This is a good article as it uses infographics which makes it easier to understand and take in the idea of developing and implementing a media strategy and in this case for social media. The first 4 steps are the basics to developing a strategy and then it expands on it with not great detail but just the quick basic information one needs to know. Although one thing it doesn't mention though is analyzing a market or finding a target market which I beleive helps within the process of developing a strategy, knowing what potential customers to target or what market or segment.

Selina EverHungry Nihalani's curator insight, October 6, 2013 3:23 PM

In today’s market, social media has become an essential factor of building a business strategy. It is very important that we approach and engage customers through social sites. In the beginning of this article, it shows that a successful social media strategy depends on establishing a sound business goal. Goals must be defined clearly to utilize the appropriate social media in achieving the business goal. After the goals are set, it is also important to define the metrics and tactics. This is because these will measure whether the social media efforts are creating consideration and conversions with the target audience. Through this process, companies can evaluate and measure success and failures, and prepare for a better business strategy to succeed in social media.

When it comes to design, user experience is one of the key things.


According to this infographic, 68% of users leave because of poorly designed websites and 62% of customers base future purchases on past experiences. These stats alone are clear enough that UX (User Experience) isn’t something that can be taken lightly. The life and blood of your business might very well depend on this factor alone.

Ennio Martignago's curator insight, August 2, 2013 4:42 AM

Chissà quanti IT manager considerano che l'impatto delle piattaforme in azienda dipende dal fatto che il "68% degli utenti abbandona a causa della scarsa qualità nel design della UI mentre il 62% di essi basa le proprie scelte sulle esperienze passate"? Di certo una valutazione di questo genere influisce sulla fiducia dei clienti interni verso i propri IT manager. Non siamo più negli anni '80 o '90 quando bastava buttare lì qualche terminologia tecnica per zittire tutti. Oggi vi è una conoscenza basata sul confronto di altre proposte, su quelle adottate a casa propria e su pacchetti tutto compreso testabili facilmente dall'utilizzatore finale.

Infographics is short form for "Information Graphics". These are image visualization of data or information. It draws inspiration from Pictographs which are used as a picture language. Human mind accepts visual data more accurately and clearly than the raw text data. This concept relies heavily upon the creation of images which are used to convey complex data,graphs,information etc in an easier way before the audience.
