Mobile Design Vs. Responsive Design

Mobile Design Vs. Responsive Design | WebsiteDesign | Scoop.it
Deciding between a mobile or responsive design can be a difficult decision. On the one hand, Google seems to rank websites with responsive design higher. On the other, a mobile design might provide a better user experience for certain types of websites. Looking at both types of design to figure out the best option for your purposes requires an honest evaluation of your readership, your own professional needs, and what you need to accomplish with your website.

36 Examples of Web Design Homepage Layout Concepts

36 Examples of Web Design Homepage Layout Concepts | WebsiteDesign | Scoop.it
A visitor will always be judging your website from the first pageload. Sometimes this could be an internal page but most of the time people will land directly onto your homepage. The job of a web designer is to captivate their audience with a stunning homepage layout complete with beautiful graphics, usable navigation links, and plenty of relatable content. The problem is that every homepage looks different so there is no winning formula – but it’s precisely because of these differences that a homepage will stand out from the masses.

Parallax Web Design: What It Is and How It Can Affect Your SEO #websitedesign #seo

Parallax Web Design: What It Is and How It Can Affect Your SEO #websitedesign #seo | WebsiteDesign | Scoop.it

Digest...


Parallax design sites are growing in use because they embrace the fluidity of the Web, provide simplicity, and offer a scrolling technique that creates a neat 3-D effect.

 

You should be aware of some concerns when deciding whether to use a parallax design. Concerns include the following.

Load times

Parallax design is highly animated with a lot of scripts, so it can decrease the load time of a website.

Browser support

Not all browsers are able to support the parallax design. That inability can lead to problems for the user.

Not mobile-friendly

Parallax scrolling is also not ideal for mobile as it makes the website bloated. Parallax adds layers of code to a website.

Deficient for analytics

If all your content is on one page, understanding what content is capturing visitors can be difficult. There can be workarounds to this obstacle, such as using event tracking or tying a pageview in Google Analytics to sections of parallax scrolling, but parallax design does add a layer of complexity to analytics.

SEO

SEO and new design techniques often don't mesh. In addition to being deficient on the analytics side, many parallax websites are not built with SEO in mind. Content often takes a backseat to the visual, and parallax pages typically aren't geared towards specific topics and targeted websites. External websites may only have one page to link without linking to specific subpage with more relevant content.

Avoid like the plague.

Don Hileman's curator insight, October 19, 11:08 PM

Parallax websites look amazing, but are they effective for SEO? 

 

Well that depends. There are several things such as Page Title, Page Description, and Content that plays a major role in SEO. Parallax designs can still include great content which is one of the most important things when it comes to SEO. 

Martin (Marty) Smith's curator insight, Today, 9:44 AM

I used this phrase in a meeting last year and got laughed at. Parallax is mobile friendly so a trending design ethos.

Mobile and Tablet Growth Demands Web Solution #responsivedesign | WebsiteDesign | Scoop.it
Screens are getting smaller….and bigger…and we simply have more of them!

The use of the Internet has evolved quickly in the past few years!  Gone are the days of only large desktop computers as primary methods to use the Internet.  PewResearch outlined 2014 stats on the use of mobile devices and tablets, and the data was amazing!

The Mobile and Tablet Growth Demands a Web Solution!

Mobile Stats: As of January 2014

90% of American adults have a cell phone
58% of American adults have a smartphone
42% of American adults own a tablet computer
32% of American adults own an e-reader
It’s no wonder then that one of the fastest growing areas of web development is mobile and tablet friendly websites.  These websites are called “Responsive sites” because they “respond” to the device size of the web visitor, giving them a great experience for their device.  This means no more squinting to view details on a site for a mobile user, and a great view on tablets such as the iPad or Android tablets.

AngularJS Tutorial: a comprehensive 10,000 word guide | WebsiteDesign | Scoop.it
Intro to AngularJS
Angular is a client-side MVW JavaScript framework for writing compelling web applications. It's built and maintained by Google and offers a futuristic spin on the web and it's upcoming features and standards.

MVW stands for Model-View-Whatever, which gives us flexibility over design patterns when developing applications. We might choose an MVC (Model-View-Controller) or MVVM (Model-View-ViewModel) approach.

This tutorial serves as an ultimate resource point to begin learning AngularJS, the concepts and APIs behind it and help you deliver fantastic web applications the modern way.

AngularJS promotes itself as a framework for enhancing HTML, it brings concepts from various programming languages, both JavaScript and server-side languages and makes HTML the dynamic language too. This means we get a fully data-driven approach to developing applications without needing to refresh Models, update the DOM and other time-consuming tasks such as browser bug fixes and inconsistencies. We focus on the data, and the data takes care of our HTML, leaving us to programming our application.

Top 10 Mistakes That Ruin Your Website Design

Top 10 Mistakes That Ruin Your Website Design | WebsiteDesign | Scoop.it
Actually my philosophy is that ‘a person who does not make mistake does not usually make anything. ’Mistakes give you the opportunity to grow but they are not considered as mistakes if they get repeated.


When you want to test a real web designer the only way to check him is by checking the websites designed by him/her. Web designing will judge a web designer perfectly. It includes a number of steps and you have to perform each and every step carefully because a single mistake can ruin your complete website. Being a designer you have to design websites for extremely impatient visitors and who will shout out loud at you if their website did not meet their expectations. And because of this the poor web designers have to face a lot of peer pressure for meeting the expectations of their clients. In such a situation anybody would make mistakes and one can even make silly mistakes. Sometimes these errors remain unseen and go live on the websites.

These mistakes could lead to disaster. You have to make sure that when you are designing a website please take care of the mistakes we are going to discuss in this post. Here is a list of mistakes that web designers forget and as a result some unexpected results follow.The biggest challenge for any web designer is to keep himself and his website away from making any errors and present their clients with neat clean and error-free website.
