some of the best websites in the world..

Being a net freak I daily visit thousands of sites, some of them are great, some are just good and some are really pathetic. When I visit a site there are several parameters that I check to judge them. And my next visit gets greatly influenced by that. The parameters that I generally consider are,
• User friendliness and visibility of important features.
• Aesthetic aspect of the site.
• How much information rich the site is.
• Relevant site links.
• And above all its simplicity!
Depending upon these aspects here I have given a list of my favorite sites, which are also well recognized world wide.

4. YouTube
5. Microsoft Network (MSN)
6. Myspace
7. Facebook
8. Wikipedia
9. Hi5
10. Orkut

5 most important things to remember while designing a site..

How many sites have you visited so for in your life?
Well, this is not really a simple question to start with. But it’s really relevant to this topic of discussion. You must be thinking what kind of a freak I am to ask such a nonsense question.
Now if I ask you to tell me the name of your favorite sites that you visit regularly, then you probably give a realistic glance at me. I am sure the ratio will be an outlandish one. So what’s the reason do you think?
Are there any certain features of a site that pulls you to it every now and then? There must be some.
Actually this parameter varies from person to person. But I think there are some common parameters or features that draw our attention almost immediately we visit them. In this jungle called World Wide Web, you will find sites on almost any subject, but only few of them are worth a second visit. God save the designers of those sites. I think it mainly happens because of the poor research work or lack of it! Hardly any web design company performs a market survey before the building process, so most of the time they deliver you a poorly designed site with zero market value. But you can not complain as they had included all the features you asked them to do. Here I have pointed out some features that every web designer must consider before going for the building job.
• Load time: loading time is one aspect that always plays in the back of our mind before we visit a site. No matter how effective or captivating the site may be, if it’s taking longer time than your toleration level, you will most likely to navigate away to a faster alternative. These are the factors that should be considered;
-Code length, huge coding are likely to cause slow loading.
-usage of graphics, heavy graphics can make your site an eye candy, but you must first ensure your visitors a smooth entry to your site. So make a proper balance between both.
-make sure that your site is hosted in a high end server. This ensures faster speed.
-usage of music files is not recommended.
-You can put your content on one server and the database on another. It will make your site faster and it is also secure to do that.
-use a slash at the end of the domain name of your site, which will indicate that it is a directory page and so server will take lesser time to load it.

• Compact ness: what I first notice in a site is its compactness. It not only saves space but also sends a right no fuss signal to your audience.
• User friendly ness: your site must be user friendly; too much complicacy will definitely spoil the soup. So keep it simple and avoid including unnecessary features.
• Open up your data: this is not the age of keeping the data in your volt; it is the age of exposing your data as much as possible.
• Think out of the box: you need not be conventional rather history never remembers the followers, it remembers the trailblazers. So if you think any of your approach is a bit absurd, don’t get retarded rather if you think it will work for you and then go for it.

you me and websites!!!

This is the age of internet and no one can escape this buzz. From a business organization to an individual, this heat has spared none. So which was a sheer luxury even a decade back, has become a necessity now. We have been gradually becoming hugely dependant upon this “triple W” thing. Along with it's informative aspect it had also spread it's business tentacles throughout the world. And in spite of having several black stains we are eventually getting hugely benefitted by this fast and easy media.

It's not long back, when very selected league of organization, forget the individuals, would go for owning a website, and it was the time when the inter marketing aspect was totally or majorly untapped domain. E-commerce was a untouched zone at this time. But the time has changed fast and within almost no time, the terms like internet marketing, web marketing or e commerce have swept across the world like a tsunami.

At this juncture of time, almost all the organization regardless of their size are going for internet marketing, as they have understood that this is the easiest and cheapest means of reaching their targeted customers. This has thrown a comparatively new industry in the corporate pan , named ' web-design industry' or 'web-development industry'. Along with the growth the competition has grown from mild to fierce within this industry. With the growth of this industry, several new tools and technologies are being developed on a regular basis. This has ultimately benefitted the users. And as a user we can only gain from it.

search engine defined

A web search engine is a tool that is designed to search for different information that's spread across the world wide we. It simply retrieves all the information that a user wants to know while he types in some keyword in the search tab. The results known as hits are basically a list of some web pages or some images. Search engine biggies like google msn or yahoo are constantly striving to produce the most relevant search result a user can dream of. The complex techniques and algorithms that are being used behind these search engines are regularly reviewed and updated.
From some time now the search engines have become an way of internet marketing or in other sense a platform for advertising. Now along with it's benefits the search engines often provide us with some illusive information, manipulated by some oganization or individuals. The equations are often very vague, and there are bhfknvpd4s many things which go on beneath the surface. But like every thing it has it's good as well as evil sides. This is the law of the nature. So we can not really complain.
