How RSS reader Feedley emerged as true winner as Google Reader died

The concept of RSS readers appeal to all- you have a single platform to store the content you like over the net from different website, news sites, blogs and YouTube etc. which you can browse or share or keep for future reference. The market was ruled by Google with its Reader.

 So we all know Google discontinued its Google Reader in July 2013 as part of its corporate structuring started in 2011 cleaning it of 70 loss making products. The move made absolute sense- Reader did have a loyal following but with competition like facebook posts, it was losing popularity. Also to be frank, the product was under invested as Google's focus was on developing and promoting other products like Google+ Never the less, Reader's death was Feedley's gain as it emerged as the best alternative RSS reader. Credit for same goes to its better functionality owing to beautiful magazine style image centric design. This aspect makes the user experience definitely better with the added benefit that in the world of touch screen tablets and phones, it is not lost. Feedley grabbed the opportunity with both hands and announced hassle free migration for existing Reader users with their Google login. With a single click the entire account of user is moved to Feedley and arranged into folders and sub folders. Feedley added functionalities like Must read section, headlines only and investing in state of art API capabilities to be the best at the game.

It gained whopping 12 Mn new users in 2 months into the announcement of Reader's , such was the impact of these measures taken by Feedley. It kept improvising with time and now has extended the log in facility from just Google account to Twitter, Facebook, Microsoft & Importing OPML along with providing personalized experience to user. It has become popular with apps for phones and tablets, also offering integration with Pocket, Inst paper and Ever note.

Thus gradually, Freedley has carved a strong place for itself in this niche RSS reader market, a place left willingly by Google to focus on other lucrative fronts.

Universally accepted concepts of web design

Web design is one of those areas which has seen quick flow and ready acceptance of the new ideas globally. Such has been the influence of some of the website designing concepts universally that these have become sort of standards. These are the concepts which are unlikely to change in the very near future. Almost all of these have a direct impact on the user behavior which has become accustomed to seeing and using these for a number of years. What are these commonly acceptable concepts of design?

1. Standardized terminology: When you see ‘home’, ‘about us’ or ‘privacy policy’ on any website, you immediately know what can be expected to be found in these pages. Based on this prejudgment, you can choose to either visit these pages or not. This terminology has become sort of standardized across the globe and the web designers do not like to play around with these terms.

2. Practical navigation and site organization: There is no way to standardise the navigation since each site has its own unique requirements which depends on its business objectives. However, what has come to be commonly acceptable is the fact that the navigation has to be very practical and, at times, intuitive, so as to make a per-assessment of how the users might want to navigate. Another important aspect related to this is that the navigation to the deepest parts of the site shall be completed within a few steps only. This is something which the website designing companies in Delhi or elsewhere in the world have come to accept. 

3. User-friendly placement of web design elements: While deciding on the placement of different elements, one can not ignore their user-friendliness.. Put simply, the ones which are most important shall be put straight in front of the sight of the person while the ones which are of least importance might be put at a place where the users do not go often. 

4. Use of CSS for layout designing: Gone are the days when the HTML tables were used for developing the different pages of a website. These have now been replaced by the cascading style sheets which are far more flexible to use than the rigidly defined tables in HTML. The usage of CSS has been so advantageous for designing, development and even online marketing of the website that this is now being used quite commonly in the web development.

These are some of the practices which are now being used universally, without any exception of the geographical region, in the field of website design and development. The web design Delhi companies also make use of these evergreen concepts of design.

Why SEO Copywriters shall know about the SEO process?

Companies engaged in website designing and search engine optimization hire content writers and SEO practitioners. These are the people with specialization in their respective fields and it does not matter if they are not aware of the stream of each other. During all these years in the field of SEO, I have seen that there is a disconnect between the SEO Copywriting and the actual SEO practice. In fact, most of the website design companies Delhi or the SEO services providers have content developers and the SEO doers as two separate skill sets and do not combine the two. The companies do not even encourage the learning and development of these two skills for them. They are keeping the two separate. However, the end result is that the content developers and the SEO practitioners do not have much avenues to grow after a period of time. After a few years, the chasm of dissatisfaction begins to make way into the employees and this increases the rate of attrition.

It is for the good of employees as well as the organizations to enable the combination of these two varied skill sets in the employees. Here are some reasons why this is important:

1.    SEO content developers are able to know the fundamental purpose of why they are producing the content, if they know how SEO would be done.

2.    They are also able to know the varied resources and the specific content requirements for each one of these. By dwelling deeper into these quality resources, they are able to know what is precisely required and how the benefits can be harnessed to the maximum by performing these activities.

3.    The SEO copywriters do not hit the career road block early on and can further increase their chances of getting better jobs by learning these two varied skills, which is appreciated in the market.

4.    Organizations also make a cost saving if they hire people with these varied skills rather than focusing on solo skilled people.

5.    Given that the SEO keeps on changing and there is increasing importance of people having knowledge of SEO as well as good copywriting skills in the market, it is a natural value addition for a person to be an expert in both of these.

SEO copywriting has many dimensions. While a person has to develop many skills within this stream, he or she is also required to know about the SEO in order to deliver a more effective content. No longer can the strategy of having writers and SEO doers as different people succeed in the present day context of search engine marketing.
