It is important that you keep your websites up to date. You should look at the latest trends and make changes accordingly so that it helps in getting more traffic and is more profitable. You do not have to redesign the whole website to make it better. Making little improvements will help in improving the user experience.

Here are some tips that you can use to improve the design of your website without doing a full redesign.

1. Make it Easier to Share Content

Sharing the content helps in increasing the traffic to the site. You can reach a wider audience if you can make it easier for the visitors to share your content on different social profiles. You should add plugins which allow users to share any post with just a few clicks. The sharing process should not be complicated because if it is, then the visitors will not go through the trouble of doing it. Adding social media plugins will help in making sure that your content is shared and it reaches a wider audience.

2. Add Videos for More Attraction

Videos are an excellent addition to any website design. Most visitors love to watch videos. It is also an excellent means of conveying information. It is a much faster and effective way of getting across your message as compared to the text. It is better to add a dynamic video instead of lengthy boring descriptions. People like to stay on sites which offer more videos. It is also one of the features which compel people to come back to your website.

3. Make use of All the White Space

Too much white space on a site can be a little unwelcoming. It is better to use most of the available space. You can use them for more advertising. But it is important to leave just enough of the blank space so that the site does not look overwhelming. There should be a good balance between the content and the empty space. Too much empty space will make the page look boring while too much content can make it look congested – so adopt a balanced design. You should put the most important things on top and surround it with images or text which highlights it.

4. Go for a Responsive Design

Most consumers like to visit sites by using different devices. Make sure that your website is easily accessible on different devices. Many people use smartphones while surfing online. Having a responsive design helps in uplifting sales and increasing the SEO of the site. Use platforms such as Drupal or WordPresUe to make the site more responsive.

5. The Quality of Content Matters

The type of content plays a major role in determining how much traffic your site gets. It is essential that the content is unique and is of good quality. People will only share your content on their social media profiles if the content is of good quality. You should also see the trend and determine the interests of people. Try to focus your content on what people like. You can also see the posts which have been shared most by the people. It will also give an idea about the content that people would like to see.

6. Avoid Posting Too Much

Posting new content regularly seems like a good move because it means that visitors will always have fresh content to check out. But always remember that adding new content is only a good idea if it is of good quality. You should not comprise the quality just so you can provide fresh content constantly.

7. Aim Bigger and Go Global

Offering content just in the English language means that you are limiting your potential visitors. You should look to integrate a system which offers translations. It will allow you to increase the visitor’s base and there are several translation tools that you can use. If you want to go global then you should make sure that you are sensitive to the norms of different cultures.

11 Google Chrome Apps and Features to Help You Get More Done with Less Effort

11 Google Chrome Apps and Features to Help You Get More Done with Less Effort

In today’s fast-paced and never-ending busy world, we are overwhelmed by tasks that need to be completed by tight deadlines. With so much technology it is difficult to find the right tools to help boost our efficiency. And, many tools get obsolete so its essential to stay up-to-date to know when you will have to make adjustments to these tools. Independently of where you work, there’s a good chance that you have to be working on a PC or a laptop.

Do you are feel like you do not have enough time, or cannot accomplish much as of late? It is recommended to take a step back and look at the big picture. Also, you want to explore new and innovative ways to improve productivity.

In this article, I outline 11 features and apps within the Chrome browser that can help you do just that.

Minimizing Tabs

Let’s face it we all have more than a dozen tabs opened on our computers. One neat trick to still keep most of them open is to turn them into pinned tabs. On Google Chrome you can right-click the tab and select “Pin Tab” option. This turns the tab into an icon enabling you to continue multitasking.

Pinning a tab anchors the tabs on the left of your toolbar; a great benefit of the “Pin Tab” feature is that you can’t close these tabs accidentally since the “X” disappears after pinning them.

Incognito Mode

Google Chrome is a very easy-to-use and intuitive. But, Google does collect our browsing data; so to remedy this, you can use Incognito Mode. This feature does not keep your browsing or download history. You can enable or access it in three different ways:

  1. Press Ctrl/Command+shift+N
  2. Select File Menu and choose New Incognito Window
  3. Download extension New Incognito Window

This feature is very handy if you’d rather not have your browsing history stored and utilized for future advertisement or suggested pages.

Save Webpages as PDF Files

Have you ever browsed interesting or important information and then forgot to bookmark or save it in “favorites”, making it impossible to find again? Chances are you have done this on a number of occasions.

Thankfully, there is an easy solution. You can save webpages as PDF files. On your keyboard, press control/command+p and you will be able to save webpages as PDFs.

Open Recently-closed Tabs

Ever had dozens of tabs opened and all of a sudden your browser shuts down? It has probably happened to all of us. You can easily recover all of your tabs using two approaches. Don’t panic if this happens because there is a workaround and solution for it.

One is by pressing Ctrl/CMD+Shift+T.

The other approach is to click on the three vertical dots on your browser and hover over “History”.

Solve Mathematical Problems

Google’s Chrome browser doesn’t just search for relevant and updated information. It is also capable of performing some mathematical problems. Within the omnibox (Chrome’s address or URL bar), you can perform mathematical exercises.

For example, if you are struggling with percentages you can search 20 percent of x amount and it will instantly provide a result. Pretty handy, right?!

Play Media Files

Are you frequently met with difficulties when playing or watch a video files? Well, once again Chrome comes to the rescue. You can can listen or play videos from all sorts of movie or music files (mp3, mp4, .mov, .mkv, .ogv, .webm, .wav, etc.) by simply dragging the file into the search bar.

In addition, you can view images, PDF files and Microsoft Office files, too.

Navigate Swiftly Between Tabs

With all of those tabs opened comes great navigation responsibilities. Rather than clicking through every tab, you can use shortcut keys like Ctrl+Tab to navigate all of the different tabs. Also, you are able to navigate to the first tab by pressing Ctrl-1, Ctrl-2, and so on. If you want to switch to the very last tab, press Ctrl-9.

Stay Focus(e)d

Computers nowadays have awesome capabilities.

Sometimes we like to get work done, but let’s face it, we’re all human. We sometimes procrastinate by visiting a website we really like, or maybe take a break with watching a flick on Netflix, a video on YouTube or browsing Facebook.

With Chrome’s StayFocusd extension, you can truly stay focused and get more done in less time.

This extension naturally helps you stay more productive by limiting the amount of time you spend on websites. You can set the time and it will automatically block those sites after a certain period.

Grammarly for Editing

Grammarly is a must have, and it’s really a complete powerhouse. Grammarly helps you check your grammar and spelling for everything you write online.

You can use it professionally or as a student, which will make the editing process much easier and more efficient. Furthermore, it can automatically check for typos when you send an email, type a Tweet, or post a Facebook comment. It’s like having your own personal copyeditor!

Loom

There are times that words in an email or written text in a chat app will just not convey the right meaning.

There is a saying that a picture is worth a thousand words. Well, the same is true of videos.

With Loom, you can capture, narrate and immediately share video recordings of your screen, which will help coworkers understand issues you are facing, or to easily convey an explanation on screen. Plus, with video you will be able to easily walk people through a process, and you can use it to create simple how-to videos.

Chrome Calendar Extension

No matter what your level of responsibility is at your job, Google Calendar is another essential resource to have at your fingertips.

Specifically, you can have this extension added as an icon in the toolbar of your browser, which I highly recommend. Once you add the extension to your browser, you can check for upcoming events with a single click without leaving your current page.

Final Thoughts

Google Chrome has definitely evolved from its inception. As you can see you have a very powerful tool that comes as a free installation and is loaded with dozens of capabilities. The above listed Chrome apps can resolve some of the most common obstacles to your time management and productivity.
