Definitely seems useful. If you've ever worked with XML in iOS, you know the pain that many others have been faced with.

Google Launches SERP Menus

Google Launches SERP Menus | Web Dev & Design | Scoop.it

Yesterday afternoon Google’s search engine results page (SERP) included clickable menus for select websites. [1] Here is a screenshot: If you click on a menu item, it loads another group of links.

 

Why would Google include menus in its search results and what are the implications for searchers, advertisers, and website owners?

 

First, these menus produce a better experience for searchers. You can quickly find the most relevant pages from within Google’s search results.

 

This saves you time. This feature also benefits advertisers and Google. If users are spending more time browsing Google’s search results they are probably more likely to see and click on a sponsored result. Higher click-through rates on ads equates to more revenue for Google.

9 Excellent Tools for Design Mockups

9 Excellent Tools for Design Mockups | Web Dev & Design | Scoop.it
So you’ve just taken some killer photos with your new DSLR, or you captured a great video with your iPhone — what’s next? While it feels natural to just post media quickly to your FacebookPage, sometimes great photos or video need their own home in the form of a personal website.

 

But on the other hand, it’s not easy to make a website layout that complements the rich media. In order to make a great website, professional web designers take advantage of mockup tools to analyze layout, design and functionality. Taking advantage of these applications (some of which are 100% free) is a wise move — especially if you’re interested in creating a professional website for your photography or video.

Responsive design websites can help make your web content work better as the number of people visiting on smartphones continues to increase. But responsive design is not a magic cure for whatever ails your site, particularly if your site suffers from great quantities of little-used content.

13 Indispensable Plugins for the Wordpress Developer Toolkit | Web Dev & Design | Scoop.it

According to data reported in 2011 by W3Techs, WordPress is used by 55.0% of all websites with a known content management system. This represents 17.3% of all websites. Yoast.com reports that 72.4 million websites are built on WordPress. Besides it’s SEO-friendliness and relative ease of use, perhaps the most alluring quality of WordPress as a CMS is the multitude of available plugins that can customize a website and add dynamic functionality.

Responsive Web Design: Ultimate List of Advantages and Disadvantages.

Responsive Web Design: Ultimate List of Advantages and Disadvantages. | Web Dev & Design | Scoop.it

Robin Good: If you are considering adopting a web design responsive solution to make your web site fully compatible with any type of screen and mobile device, you may want to give a good read to this excellent guide by Slavik Volinskion SEOMoz, which highlights all pros and cons of adopting this approach. Both from a design-usability and from a SEO viewpoint.

SEOMoz: "Responsive design is not a one-size-fits-all solution to mobile.

 

According to the author of the Responsive Web Design book, Ethan Marcotte:

"But most importantly, responsive web design isn't intended to serve as a replacement for mobile web sites. [...] And as a development strategy, it's meant to be evaluated to see if it meets the needs of the project you're working on."

 

Must-read: 8/10

20 lines of code that will beat A/B testing every time - Steve Hanov's Programming Blog

20 lines of code that will beat A/B testing every time - Steve Hanov's Programming Blog | Web Dev & Design | Scoop.it

A/B testing is used far too often, for something that performs so badly. It is defective by design: Segment users into two groups. Show the A group the old, tried and true stuff. Show the B group the new whiz-bang design with the bigger buttons and slightly different copy. After a while, take a look at the stats and figure out which group presses the button more often. Sounds good, right? The problem is staring you in the face. It is the same dilemma faced by researchers administering drug studies. During drug trials, you can only give half the patients the life saving treatment. The others get sugar water. If the treatment works, group B lost out. This sacrifice is made to get good data. But it doesn't have to be this way.
