10 SEO Rules for Designers

Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) is a vital component of any website. As a web designer or blogger, it’s important you understand how SEO works. Here are ten easy rules that will immediately improve the SEO on all of your web sites.

SEO For Designers

Rule Zero: Do Not Cheat. Period.

If you walked into a room full of genius scientists with PHDs, do you think you could outsmart them all? No. Google has hundreds of rooms full of genius scientists with PHDs, and their job is to work 60 hours a week to make sure you can’t fool Google. You can’t outsmart them. Ever. Ignore any advice on trying to cheat the system and focus on making great web sites with great content, and your sites will show up fine in searches.

Rule One: Stick to Your Keywords

Pick a few keywords or phrases that describe your site. Use them, and words related to them, whenever it’s natural to do so. Repeating them uselessly is no good (rule Zero), use them in sentences, headlines, and links.

Rule Two: Content is King

Users don’t search for design, they search for content. If your site doesn’t have content people want, no one will look at it.

Every page on your site should follow the Inverted Pyramid. Each page should lead with a relevant H1 tag with one of your keywords, and the first paragraph of text should be a summary of the rest of the page. Continue reading

Cross-Browser HTML5 Placeholder Text

One of the nice enhancement in HTML5 web form is being able to add placeholder text to input fields. Placeholder attribute allows you to display text in a form input when it is empty and when it is not focused (it clears the field on focus). This is a nifty feature, but it is not supported by all browsers yet. This tutorial will show you how to use Modernizr to detect if placeholder is supported, or else use jQuery to display the fallback placeholder text dynamically.

Old School Javascript Way

Before we had the placeholder attribute, we relied on Javascript to fake the placeholder text. Below is an example. The text is inserted in the value attribute. On focus, it checks if the value is “search” and returns empty to clear the field. If the value is empty, it returns “search.” As you can see, this way is not an efficient way because each field has to be checked. Continue reading

HTML5 And Flash: Why It’s Not A War, And Why Flash Won’t Die

With all of the buzz going on in our Web community about HTML5 and Flash, I’ve decided to dive into the fray and offer my thoughts as a 10-year veteran of both Web design and Flash development. Let me preface by saying that this article is opinion-based, and that information is certainly out there that I am not aware of, and that none of us truly knows what the future holds.

Use Of Flash Till Now

Macromedia Logo1 in HTML5 And Flash: Why Its Not A War, And Why Flash Wont Die

When Flash broke on the scene, it was a fairly revolutionary tool… and much simpler to use than it is today. I first started using it in 1999, when it was being produced by Macromedia. The current version then was 4. The simple benefit was that it allowed the average computer user to design graphics and create simple user interactions with almost no skill: quite a feat in the messy and over-complicated world of Netscape and IE4.

SWF Decompiler V6 Will Fully Support Decompiling Flash CS5

CS

As the industry-leading Flash decompiling tool, Sothink SWF Decompiler always keeps up with the latest Flash technology. Since the release of Adobe Flash CS5, the SWF Decompiler team has made an amazing plan of adding the power of decompiling Flash CS5, which will be realized in Sothink SWF Decompiler V6.0. It is a great enhanced version that is coming soon!

The current Sothink SWF Decompiler V5.6 is able to decompile the SWF made by Flash CS5, and extract SWF resources or convert it to the FLA file that can be opened in Flash CS5. But as we know, the TLF and XFL files stand for the most important features of Flash CS5, and now there is no actual Flash decompiler that can decompile these file formats on the market.

However, some Flash Decompiler product notably saying “supports conversion of SWF files created in Flash CS5*!” on its webpage,
1


and then give a very small-sized note: “The only new features of Flash CS5 not yet supported are Text Layout Framework (TLF) texts and conversion to XFL format. ”

2

This kind of commercial behavior will greatly mislead users, and let users misunderstand that the advertised Flash Decompiler software has totally supported Flash CS5 already.

Fortunately, SourceTec Software, the creator who first brought SWF Decompiler type product into the market, will always take high sense of responsibility to develop good software products and serve to users with honest attitude, instead of misleading users by playing word games. In the upcoming Sothink SWF Decompiler V6.0, SourceTec will step forward and make decompiling TLF and XFL becomes true.

Special offer: users ordered the V5.6 can upgrade to the upcoming V6.0 for FREE.
