In this week's video I show you the simple steps I use to rank for anything using a 3 article system.
Joost de Valk (you might know him as the founder of Yoast) has come out with a new article this week, condemning sliders on sites. Joost’s recommendation is closely backed by many other CRO & SEO heavyweights, including Tim Ash & Tim Stewart. In the same week, Neal Patel proudly backed sliders and their success. So who can you believe? Both, actually - they’re talking about entirely different things. I’ve been keeping a close eye on large, image heavy, rotating ‘carousels’, like the ones you might see on a retailer’s homepage featuring different promotions. And just like Joost, I’ve realised how much they suck - along with some other design choices that could be blocking your audience from finding what they’re really after. ____________________ Like my ranting?
