Sometimes the key to standing out can be having something different. With all of the business card options out there, it’s difficult to decide what will work best for you. So, what route to take?

This ad use the the example/ illustration and narration   by showing how their product can impact a person's life and telling the consumer the story that art school doesn't show its students how use materials to help them create their arts.. This ad use pathos to to futhure carry its meaning to the consumers.

Teenage Usability (Jakob Nielsen's Alertbox)

Teenage Usability (Jakob Nielsen's Alertbox) | Web Design | Scoop.it
Teens are (over)confident in their web abilities, but they perform worse than adults. Lower reading levels, impatience, and undeveloped research skills reduce teens' task success and require simpler sites.

 

Teen Motivations for Using Websites

Teenagers access the web for myriad activities, including entertainment. Generally, they have a specific goal, even if that goal is just to keep themselves occupied for 10 minutes.

 

Although their specific tasks might differ from adults, teens are similar to adults in major ways: both groups expect websites to be easy to use and to let them accomplish their tasks. 

 

Teens in our studies reported using the web for:

School assignmentsHobbies or other special interests (including learning new skills or finding fun activities)Entertainment (including music and games)News (including sports, current events, and entertainment)Learning about new topicsTalking to friendsShopping

Even when teens don’t make actual purchases on websites, they do visit them to research products and build wish lists for the credit-card-carrying adults in their lives.

Working in a Post-Penguin 2.0 Web - Website Magazine

Working in a Post-Penguin 2.0 Web - Website Magazine | Web Design | Scoop.it

Synopsis...

 

So, what exactly will it mean to work on the Web and practice search engine optimization for your website or blog in a post-Penguin 2.0 world?

Authority Matters (More)

Google is going to be paying much closer attention to your credentials, so if your site is considered an authority in your specific niche, expect to see that pay off in the form of higher rankings on the search engine.

Changing the Way We Guest Blog

One of the biggest things that Google seems to be interested in targeting are sites that have a lot of outbound links pointing at just one website, as opposed to various links to many different authoritative websites. This will (or should) have a major effect on the way that content marketers and bloggers choose the websites that they write guest blog posts for.

The Advertorial Question

Google likely won’t be recognizing those who publish advertorials as true “authorities,” and they should not be expecting link credibility from the search engine if they publish them.

The Death of Content Spam

Google has finally tied a direct penalty to the much-maligned art of content spam. This obviously means that any sites that “feature” user-generated content spam will be hurt on the SERPs as a result.

Enough with the Over-Optimization

Sites that use their navigation, header and/or footer areas to include more keywords as a way to rank higher for those terms, or sites that add a superfluous amount of header and footer links for those keywords, will be working in vein now.

Keeping Ads in Check

In order to keep websites and domains from being landing pages for a bunch of ads, Google has started handing out penalties to sites that put too many advertisements above the fold.

An Increase in Clusters

Despite the fact that Google likes to have as much variety as possible on the first page of the SERPs, it looks like the search engine will be displaying more clusters of multiple pages from the same domain.

Crawlability is Key

Crawl errors that diminish the spiders’ ability to scan your website to determine its authority, and thus ranking position, will now have a greater impact on your overall SEO efforts. Crawl errors affect a site’s strength and authority, and that will become a bigger problem on the post-Penguin 2.0 Web.
