Browser Safe Fonts In Web Design

 

Choosing Browser Safe Fonts For Your Site

  Did you know a browser (i.e. Chrome, Safari, Firefox or Internet Explorer) can ONLY display fonts, for the web page being viewed, that are installed on that particular PC or MAC? To the average business person interested in a particular website design ‘Web typography’ and the use of fonts on the World Wide Web can be a confusing subject.

  What it means to a website owner is that visitors MAY NOT see their site exactly as planned unless they choose fonts carefully. To avoid the possibility of visitors looking at a web page in a font never intended it’s important to choose from what are the most universally accepted fonts. Fonts used by the most versions of Windows and Mac operating systems.

Page URLs And Your Traffic!

 

Traffic and New Business

how site traffic relates to page URLs  If growing traffic and new business matters to you then accounting for content & page URLs over time is strategic! This post stems from regular questions we get on the subject of site redesign or consolidation and the simultaneous maintenance of keyword indexing and backlinks, including bookmarks, that page URLs accumulate.

  And if a URL must change, you have options.

 

Breaking It Down

  When your pages have keywords indexed by search engines it’s based upon a record of the page URL where that keyword exists. For instance, each month Paulette Zuena sees traffic to her Andover MA Real Estate & Community News website for searches related to the subject of homes and real estate around the community of Andover. That’s because http://andoverrealestateandcommunitynews.com  covers the subject and search engines have indexed it and all of its’ page URLs for their keywords.

  Just like you, Paulette Zuena wants to maintain and grow that search indexing, the related traffic AND any potential for new business.

 

Site Redesign Or Sites Consolidation: Account For URLs!

  If you’re redesigning (or consolidating) a site with no intention of changing the domain, simply be sure to ask that your designer maintain all existing page URLs. It’s possible a setting for the structure of your URLs could change if no one’s paying attention, so be sure to ask!

  If you do intend to change your domain then look into redirects or what technically is referred to as a Permanent 301 Redirect. Visitors and search engines can then access your pages as if they never moved, by automatically sending them to the new URLs. It’s coded into the new pages and the most search engine-friendly method of redirection to a new page URL.
