A template can be of various types ranging from a formula based electronic calculator to a web design. It is a ready to use design created by web designers and sold for profits. Web templates are similar to any other website that allows the integration of text, audio, video and various other applications with it. A web design also makes use of certain strategies with which it can be deployed and distributed using the internet as a medium. A web design system is a methodology used to develop web templates. Web design systems are meant to work three functional levels; the principles to carry out these functions are pre-defined.

The Future of Advertising Universe

Posted by: Hasan on June 13th, 2007 in Internet Marketing

Social media depicts the online skills and techniques that everyone uses to provide outlooks, viewpoints, ideas, perceptions, information, entertainment, etc. These skills may be portrayed through technologies like blog messages, scraps, videos, podcasts, web pages, wikis, communication boards, etc. The freely accessible worldwide encyclopedia for reference (Wikipedia), social networking websites (Orkut, Myspace), business networking (, video sharing sites (YouTube), etc are various mediums of social media.

Social Media Marketing (SMM) uses web marketing techniques for achieving brand marketing and awareness. It blends branding tricks through the social media. The branding and advertising needs and trends may be different for different organisations. While one tries to generate brand awareness, another may be looking for product visibility or market penetration. It may also take the form of online brand image management. The marketing strategy here is unlike the traditional hard selling techniques. Social media marketing requires tactful marketing of a particular product or service in a particular community or group to achieve maximum referrals. Identifying the target audience and adopting marketing strategies targeted at them, is the right way. It all starts with selection of the right medium and using it resourcefully to appeal to the target audience. A blend of information, leisure, hilarity, debate can do the trick.

Social media marketing is much like: Search Engine Optimization (SEO), Search Engine Marketing (SEM), Word-of-Mouth Marketing, and Social Media Optimization (SMO). Many people consider that SMO applies the principles of SEO to social media websites. SMM takes a more vigorously premeditated role hinting at the community to unite with the content.

Web 2.0

Posted by: Hasan on June 10th, 2007 in Technology

The web 2.0 is a phrase which was first used in 2003 by a company called “O’Reilly Media” to define a new version of the World Wide Web, its main characteristics were:

1- It made the WWW public, generating and distributing web content began to be more common, users could participate in the sites data creation and create their own pages, threads, blogs, videos and auctions. These sites such as Wikipedia, Ebay, and Youtube have now become the leaders on the WWW and contain big usercommunities which update their sites data consistently.

2- Categorization and organization of content, such as the deep linking, site owners organized their content in a more comfortable, user freindly way using the back slash (/). The sites appeared more clear on search engines and the user could just type instead of browsing the whole site to find this section.

3- And the last, most important thing was the “Dot-Com boom” (1995-2001), in which many new Internet-based companies began their work as their owners saw their potential on the Internet, companies such as Google and Ebay had been founded in the early beginning of the “boom” and became the great success of today.

The uses of Web 2.0

Web-based applications and desktops:

These “online desktops” are similar to a PC environment and function as application platforms giving the user the feeling his is at his desktop, not online, today this service is mostly used when a user wants to enter his desktop from another computer, all he/she needs to do is to sign up to one of these services and the problem is fixed.

Rich Internet applications:

Client-side software

Web 2.0 gives the users an option to work with data stored on servers, a simple example of it is an online html form which can be found anywhere these days, this forms are made using the scripting languages such as javascript, Java or flash, the forms are very helpful for site owners who can easily browse the form with all the details included inside and sort it or make further uses out of it (such as export it and store it on a side-server).


XML is a fee-free open standard. Its primary purpose is to facilitate the sharing of data across the Internet. XHTML and RSS are written on the XML language by adding semantic constraints.


The RSS is another Web 2.0 feature giving the users an option to make other uses of a sites data.
The RSS is used to publish content updates such as new headlines on news sites or blog entries.
The user can enter and see the updates made on his chosen site and the chosen section (News/Music/Jokes) without
the need to search for them by himself.

Web protocols

Web communication protocols are supported by the Web 2.0 structure. These protocols such as the REST and SOAP involve some form of XML coding in them.

So Why are Directories Important?

Posted by: Hasan on May 10th, 2007 in Web Directories

A web directory is very different from a search engine. Directories are categorized, typically organized by subject or topic, where a search engine is just a tool for accessing one page in a database of many. In the 1990’s, Yahoo! exploded onto the directory scene, and maintains a large market share to this day. Still, Google remains the tool of choice for people to locate information on the web. So why are directories important?

Google is certainly an excellent tool for finding specific pages. Searching by website name will typically find the site immediately, but what if you want to browse through a list of shoe retailers? You could search for “shoes,” or “buy shoes,” but your results will only reflect pages that have been visited by thousands of people. This is great for a large manufacturer, but if you’re looking for a smaller shop, you may be hard pressed to find it. A directory would let you browse shoe retailers, perhaps by selecting retail, then apparel, then footwear, depending on the organization of the directory. Read the rest of this entry »

CSS vs. Table Based Design

Posted by: Hasan on May 2nd, 2007 in Website Design

CSS vs. Table Based design has been one of the hottest topics of debate in the web design field. Scores of sites proclaim the benefit of good CSS coding, flaunting load speed, standardization, and search engine optimization as the greatest benefits. Advocates of table design often downplay these benefits, claiming less than stellar improvements to a convention that may not need fixing. Combined with the overall utility and widespread acceptance of table design in the development community, table based design has a strong case of its own. So which should we use, tables or CSS? This is where the debate falters. Both sides are able to make a strong case because both sides have valid points. Tables and CSS do many of the same things, but each can also accomplish different things at different levels. A valuable perspective involves a consumer focused approach. Most developers have someone in mind, be it an audience for a personal or corporate webpage, or a client looking to promote their site to an audience. At the end of the day, a good developer must be able to answer to those who pay the rent. Read the rest of this entry »

What is a Web Template?

Posted by: Hasan on April 28th, 2007 in Website Templates

A web template is a framework of graphics and style created to simplify the web design process. A template is created with design elements excluding unique content effectively separating design and content elements. Templates vary in style and complexity.

Types of Web Templates

All-Page Template – a template encompasses an entire page including all design elements. Most elements including a header, footer, graphics and content location are fixed.

Block Templates – Only a portion of a website is included in template format. Menu bars or headers might be fixed on an otherwise dynamic website.

Template Engines - Templates used in conjunction with a template engine can be used to create mass-produced pages. Customized content contained within a database is combined with a pre-selected template to create mass-produce pages of a website. The template engine creates slightly differing pages based on database entries with little or no manual input of content into the web design.

Web Design Templates – Templates used for more personalized customization to create a more complex and unique website. These pages are updated in a more manual fashion. They may also contain fewer pages as they are not mass-produced via template engine.

Google has quickly become the search engine of choice for a vast number of internet browsers, requiring web developers to focus heavily on optimizing page visibility for Google’s crawlers. Ensuring quick access to every file on a site can mean more pages get indexed, allowing for better keyword results. Many developers focus on directory structure to enhance results, a practice that can make most sites, especially those containing hundreds or thousands of pages, easy to manage. Still, a directory must be more than a random organization of folders and files. Good directories improve indexing speed and provide an organizational structure to the site. Consider the following examples when organizing your site. Read the rest of this entry »
