Spammy Website Test: How To Tell If Google Considers Your Website Unreliable

Spammy Website Test: How To Tell If Google Considers Your Website Unreliable | WebsiteDesign | Scoop.it


Robin Good: If you have been wondering whether your lowering traffic is a consequence of Google penalties or whether your blog or website is at risk of being soon hit by one of Google filtering algorithms, here is a great set of questions to ask yourself before deciding on what course of action to take.


From the original article: "Let’s say you’re a sole proprietor who’s hired someone to do SEO for you.


Or maybe you manage a marketing team, and SEO has always been one of those things you wish you had time for but decided to outsourceinstead.


How do you know that the SEO you're outsourcing is truly legitimate and won’t result in your website being considered spammy?


...So, how do you know if your website is spammy?


And what should you do to make sure it isn't considered *GULP* web spam?"


Among others, four typical traits of web sites "at risk" of being classified as spammy are:


1) Low use of social media


2) Over-optimized content, use of keywords, text manipulation


3) Many 404s and broken links


4) Lots of ads on the page


But there are at least four more that you should be aware of.



Useful. Good reminder to those too concerned with SEO and too little with creating unique, valuable content. 8/10

Faster WordPress: Need For Speed #wordpress #websitedesign | WebsiteDesign | Scoop.it

Nothing is more frustrating to an internet user than a slow website. You wait 3 seconds…4 seconds…10 seconds…and your site is still loading. Research has shown if your site takes more than four seconds to load, you could lose up to 25% of your visitors. Sites that take 10 seconds to load lose up to 35-40% of their visitors, according to KISSmetrics.


When building your WordPress site, it is extremely important to observe best practices for coding and website design to help minimize load time. These methods will help you build a solid website with fast load times.

Jennifer Beever's curator insight, August 12, 12:14 PM

This is an interesting discussion of the difference between user experience (UX) and user-centered design (UCD). The author says UCD defines the problem and UX helps solve it. I like this quote, "UX design thinking is like a cognitive sore thumb." In other words, once you begin to notice what doesn't work on websites, you will see more and more problems everywhere.

7 Usability Best Practices for eCommerce Product Pages

7 Usability Best Practices for eCommerce Product Pages | WebsiteDesign | Scoop.it

How much effect do product pages have on conversion rates? Well, it depends. But the fact is that this page is your final chance to make the user buy.


It’s here that users expect to find all the information they need to make a purchase decision. And it’s a big challenge for a UX designer, because there is so much information to be delivered in so little space. Probably that’s why most product details pages end up looking cluttered and messy. So it’s crucial to present that information in a way that is most convenient, easy-to-understand and convincing.

Luciana Lindstrom's curator insight, August 12, 3:20 PM

A menudo los sitios web de comercio electrónico tienen un diseño hermoso, excelentes campos de marketing y ofertas muy atractivas, pero de alguna manera las tasas de conversión siguen siendo bajos. Este es uno de los principales síntomas de problemas de usabilidad.

No hay remedio mejor sin embargo. Cada industria tiene sus particularidades y, por ejemplo, lo que funciona para una tienda de joyas en línea puede no necesariamente funciona para una librería en línea. Pero a través de la evaluación comparativa de la investigación y las pruebas de usabilidad de sitios web de comercio electrónico, podemos identificar algunas recomendaciones generales que pueden servir como una guía.

57 Little Things to Double Check Before Your Website Launch

57 Little Things to Double Check Before Your Website Launch | WebsiteDesign | Scoop.it

Admit it: Launching a new website is stressful -- even for the most seasoned digital marketers.


Websites are complex. There are so many things that are easily overlooked, like a broken link or a misspelled word. 


And of course, a handful of things could go very, very wrong. Like what if you forget to test an important data capture form and then lose out on generating a bunch of new leads? Or worse, what if you forget to properly set up site redirects, and those valuable search engine visitors get a page not found message?


Instead of worrying about the what ifs, wouldn't it be much easier to have a comprehensive website checklist to run down before every site launch? One that you could use for enterprise websites, microsites, landing pages, and everything in between?


Well, you're in luck because I've put together the following list of 57 things to check before launching a website. It's the same list that our team uses at our digital agency, and it's a list you can copy, edit, and make your own based on the software you're using to launch and host your website. We've grouped items into seven categories: page content, design, functionality, SEO, analytics, security & backups, and compliance. Keep on reading to make sure you don't forget a thing before your next launch.

A Better Bing for Web Developers?

A Better Bing for Web Developers? | WebsiteDesign | Scoop.it

Apparently so. Search engine giant Bing released a more streamlined approach aimed to give web developers and coders a better user experience. This targets technical queries such as API code referencing. In their blog, they provided a comparison with Google using common developer API tasks. Results showed meaningful links such as definitions, highly related searches, as well as code samples.

Good news indeed; considering the fact that developers often use non-alphanumeric characters during their queries. This is very tough for a regular search engine to handle. So the outcome is often irrelevant results that are a waste of time.

More Coding, Less Searching

This seems to be what Bing had in mind when they developed their new system. With the most important results showing first, developers don’t need to click through many pages just to find what they need. A glance can tell them immediately how a code works, and they can even copy-paste it onto their project. Quick, easy, and time-saving. Definitely a thumbs-up from the management team as well.
