When you run a WordPress site, most likely you will need to monetize it in some way. While you can put ads one by one on all pages, it’s much easier to get some of the many WordPress ads plugins, configure it, and wait for the money to pour in.
With the exponential development of mobile devices in terms of numbers and in terms of functionality, the rapid growth of mobile sites is nothing but logical. Just a few years ago not many companies bothered to have a mobile site but now the trend has been reversed and it’s more of an exception than a rule not to have a mobile site.
Out of the thousands of WordPress plugins, there is one group that deserves special attention – SEO plugins. These plugins silently do their job behind the curtains and they don’t contribute to the glorious look of your site. However, without them even the most glorious site is doomed because without traffic, no matter how great your site is, you are nobody.
Very often you don’t need to launch a full-blown CMS, but a simple 1-page HTML site is just what you need. In such cases it is really handy, if you have a ready-made HTML5 template to use. Fortunately, online there are hundreds, if not thousands of free and paid HTML5 templates.
We all know time is money, no matter if you use it for business or personally but this doesn’t prevent us from wasting it in the most inefficient ways. Even if you consider yourself pretty organized, you can bet your life you are not managing your time and tasks in the best possible way.
Usability mistakes can spoil even the best design, drive users away, and kill conversions. While it’s true you can’t make a site appeal to everybody and what’s usable for one user might be a total disaster for another, there are some basic usability guidelines to stick to and some common usability mistakes that are relatively easy to avoid. Here are seven of them – of course, there are many more than this but these seven are really big ones.
Your site has been up for ages and you almost hate it now because it has been the same year after year. While this is neither necessarily bad, nor a reason to redesign, very often a site that hasn’t seen a major redesign for many years really needs it.
For many designers usability is the last concern – if the HTML and CSS code is OK and the site displays properly in various browsers, everything is fine and there is no need to bother with how the user feels. Needless to say, this is a very wrong approach.
