While the age of a website is a good indicator of whether it is time for it to be redesigned, in truth there are more indicators to consider. Like us humans, some websites age better than others. You can be 100 years old and still run a marathon (it’s very rare, but it’s been done) or 20 years old and an out of shape couch potato (probably not as rare, unfortunately). A well designed site from a reputable development company can have a much longer and more productive lifespan than a poorly designed website. That said, you should do a health report on your website each year to make sure it is still performing at it’s best for you.

Specifically, what the heck is the difference between a responsive and an adaptive website? Is there a difference? Which one do I need? […]

Accelerated Mobile Pages, AMPs, is an initiative to build “mobile optimized content and have it load instantly anywhere.” These pages adhere to strict guidelines set forth by Google and are essentially stripped down versions of a normal webpage designed for one purpose, speed. Because of the stripped functionality, the use of AMPs are still limited to content pages such as news articles and blog posts but can still see major benefits when used appropriately.
Optimized Pages that seem to load instantly on mobile devices
Studies show that mobile users typically abandon a website if it takes longer than 3 seconds to load thus the main benefit of AMP is speed, being to load up to 85% faster than non-AMPs. This will enhance user experience immensely as content will be delivered to users at lighting speeds.

If you’ve ever been in charge of your company’s website (or are considering having a site built), you know that there are some industry terms that designers, developers, and consultants throw around. If you’re not a techie, you might sometimes feel like your web designer is speaking a foreign language. Sometimes you might recognize a buzz-word you heard on the news or read about in a business journal. Sometimes, these are technical terms that just go with the terrain. All of them are necessary for you to understand though – to make sure you get the most out of your site and your service providers. […]
