Okay, so you’ve maybe noticed (or maybe not) that when you look at some websites lately, they somehow modify what it is they look like layout wise depending on whether or not you’re on your smartphone or your laptop or your big desktop monitor….ahh, you’ve just bumped into what the web development community calls “responsive design!”
Basically, as you know from your own surfing visits, what responsive design is is web layout designs that respond to the device that a user is using to display the site. It’s a website design that can be viewed from any (or mostly any) device from smartphones to desktops and all the various display sizes in between and it keeps the content shown both effective and readable by the user at all times. That is, the content doesn’t change, just the layouts change depending on the type and size of the display and the chosen user browser to do the display….i.e. responsive design!
Okay…Monday and yup, I’m in the swamp with the alligators again already but did want to share again 3 top-notch infographics I’ve been mining for gems over the past little while and each is on Social Media and how to strategize for success using planning, time and budgeting for same.
All three are from great sites and all three are pretty easy to do that “mining” for nuggets that you can use today – right now in fact – to generate new knowledge about how to increase your own SMB site’s success when it comes to using Social Media.
First up, is a great one entitled “Sensible Social Media Checklist” from the folks over at thewholebraingroup.com and it’s a very sensible list indeed.
So first off, anyone who has done SEO in the past knows the importance of internal and external linking.
You not only need to link to your posts but also other sites you find valuable.
First tho, the best one I’ve seen in awhile, is this one from the folks over at infographics.sg and it is both very very “artsy” but at the same time gets the whole story across in Social Media. It’s entitled “What you need to know about choosing the most effective social media platforms” and the link to same is here….
First click this link to go to their site, to learn more about what this visual design firm does with numbers – IMHO, about the best part isn’t all about eye candy as the most utilitarian of work-a-day tasks can benefit from a fresh coat of paint and an attempt to simplify and clarify information – and here’s how they put it -
And yes, you will also most likely already know, that when it comes to the marriage between SEO and infographics, that one can easily get the “gist” of the thought that went into the creation of an infographic – you can learn from simply absorbing the images and the thoughts behind same. Infographics work well in passing along strategy and tactics…and I mean the work well, eh!
First, the word metronome - it’s a word that means a device that produces regular, metrical ticks and in this case…what I mean by same, is that when it comes to social media, that time is important to try to understand just how “quick” the social media world is growing.
Another Friday, and it’s been one hell of a week…we’ve been in client meetings for days, delivered our Online Marketing Workshop to some of our Innovation Factory’s top startups just yesterday and today it’s infographic recap time….at least this am it is! Then on to more development of our new WebSEOAudit tool…but more on that to come later.
Infographics. Simply put, work well in advancing the rank of any web page that hold same – especially (no surprise) if the infographic is both well done and spoton graphically too! That’s not news – we’ve reported on same time and time again and a simple google shows that the SEO community thinks much the same.
Simply put, it’s a term that we Canadian SEO types use to describe a search engine tactical response area – and here’s how it is described in Wikipedia…
So…the past Friday, known at least here in North America as “Black Friday” the day after the celebration of the US Thanksgiving is now over and some of the numbers that were projected are “in” and what may be surprising is that a Friday can last all weekend, eh!
What do I mean? Well, first visit and pore over this great infographic from the folks over at strangeloopnetworks.com has visited this topic and has the following numbers to report…based on their own projections as well as industry stats it appears for both the Black Friday period and into the next month of Christmas shopping too.
Okay, so the first thing today, is to learn where I got this great tip – from Lee Odden, the head honcho over at www.toprankblog.com and what a great tip it is! Lee is the knowledge generator there (among many other things I’d imagine) and in that role he writes great blog posts about all types of online marketing from strategy to tips to empirical items of note. So Kudos right off the bat to Lee!
What’d he say…well his blog piece is here that I found just on Friday past, and it is of great interest….perhaps because I love art of almost any type and whole Samurai style and content of the piece is so so much fun to read from – and to learn too!
