A few days ago we came across a really outstanding Wix website for the Los Angeles based vaudeville circus/theater, Le Tigre Tent. One thing that really impressed us about their website was their use of an animated grid gallery in the homepage, which made the whole site look more alive, more fun and more in-your-face.
This is a feature not many Wix users are aware of, yet it is so easy to do. We wanted to show you how you can add a similar animated gallery to your website with a few simple steps. You can add this gallery to every page on your site, but on the homepage it creates a really powerful effect of wowing site visitors when they just enter the site.
For illustration purposes, we’re using the “Close Up HTML” template, but this works with all Wix HTML5 templates, of course!
Websites, like fashion, make personal statements. Choosing dark shades for a website design is a powerful statement about the purpose and the mood of the site. Contrary to popular associations, dark doesn’t mean gloomy or scary. Dark colors can create a mysterious atmosphere, a classy look or a minimalist cut that draws attention to the product or service. These beautiful HTML5 websites demonstrate that well. Have a look and see how these dark shades positively accentuate the topic of the website. With nothing against websites that have a bright color scheme – dark can be beautiful on its own right.

Would you rather get 1,000,000 visitors from Google each month or 1,000? Your gut is probably telling you to go with 1,000,000, but the reality is you don’t have enough information to make an educated decision.
The keyword game isn’t just about traffic, it’s also about quality. You have to look at conversion rates to make an educated decision.
This means you have to look at larger goals and breakthrough keyword volume.
In my ten years in the business I’ve made creating high-converting keyword research plans a priority…let me share my 3-step plan with you:
Step #1: Keyword research for SEO
When you research for keywords on your own site, it’s a lot easier to do because you know the content inside out. It’s almost instinct.
But if you are working on a new site, then it is best that you do a lot of keyword research. This means starting with a list of keywords. If you don’t have a list, then work through as much content as you can.
As you do that, think about this…
- Think about any word or category you don’t understand – Drop these words into Google and see what kind of results come up.
- Do these results match what you are trying to accomplish – Or does it look like their competitor? As you will see when we get into the conversion part of keyword research, keywords that don’t convert waste time and visitors.
When you find non-converting keywords, search through and remove any other keywords that are similar. As you do this your list of categories will probably change as you start to understand your site’s content. But it’s always easier to start with too many categories, which you can reduce later.
Check the estimated search volumes and make sure they match what you expect.
While you may lean towards the more technically correct “SEO services,” you might find that more people are actually searching for SEO consultants, so you’ll want to work more references of “SEO consultants” into your copy.
And you are ready to use these 5 questions to maximize your keyword research. The following exercise is recommended by Jenny Halasz, and is a very helpful way to uncover keywords for clients efficiently and effectively…: Sigue leyendo →
One of the best sources of inspiration for artists and designers is nature. You can see lots of artwork inspired by nature, artists and designers use colors, textures, objects and photos of nature in their work. The rainbow is definitely one of the most colorful nature objects which inspires everyone. In this showcase I have collected some colorful websites with rainbow elements. Some of these use lots of colors, others use colorful lines similar to those of the rainbow while others use actual rainbow images.
