The Internet in 1994 The birth of the internet is popularly referred to as really coming into form back in 1994. To put things into perspective, the main search engine in 1994 was called Webcrawler (arguably the blueprint for modern search engines today). Yahoo! launched its web directory and relied on other providers for a search engine until it launched its own in 2002. Microsoft’s website mainly consisted of a single page that took quite a while to load properly because it contained an image. Let’s not forget too that wi-fi as we know it was a far off concept. The internet was accessed with dial-up telecom modems at 9600 bps! A […]

Fit and Functional Website Design

For this blog post, we will take a look at one of our most recent fit and functional website design projects which was for Kinetix Nutrition. This brand sells natural nutritional supplements online and also boasts a brilliant knowledge vault of content that is brimming with training and nutrition tips.

Help Your SEO With Images

Keyword Density in Image Alt Text For each of your webpages and blog posts, you should have a keyword / term assigned to it to help your SEO score. This helps to inform Google as to what this content is about. So if you run an art supplies website and have a webpage just for watercolour paints, the key term assigned to this website may be ‘buy watercolour paints online’. When it comes to the images on this webpage then, the alt text should include this term ‘buy watercolour paints online’. In tandem with this keyword being used in the webpage copy and URL etc., having it in the alt text of […]

2019 Website Design Trends

Shapes – Organic and Geometric Both geometric and organic shapes are poised to become much more popular as part of 2019 website design trends. Moving away from the more fluid and sleek shapes that were widespread in 2018, more familiar (organic) and striking (geometric) shapes can be seen as a disruptive design choice to attract attention and draw the eye towards certain content blocks and parts of your website design. The use of shapes such as these offer a versatile and cohesive approach as they can be crafted and curated to complement, rather than distract from, your custom website design. Font – Standard and Bold Last year saw a type of standardisation […]

EAW and Webheads – A Sound Match

As a proficient and highly technical integrated web team, Webheads are used to working intelligently with specialist technology such as the audio technology that EAW specialise in. Their website had to showcase the uses of their technology and the benefits of choosing it for the sound needs of venues, sporting arenas and stadiums all over the world.

Curating Copywriting in a Contemporary Context

This means that when the likes of Google scans your website to determine what content it contains and how to rank it, it relies on text and words to be able to read this content. That is why for images best practice dictates that we add alt text to them so that they can be read and understood by search engines. Websites also need words to provide each page with a meta title and meta description. These provide those searching online with a snippet of information about […]
