In the end, traffic is what the Net is all about, and we work tirelessly to make sure out sites are welcoming and worthwhile. We all constantly read about how to get more traffic, but there are still some things that can cause visitors to flee from your site like it was Godzilla (the monster, not the movie). The Importance of Positive Association An axiom of advertising is association. The human mind evolved to find correlation and causation between different things, to see patterns and accept them swiftly as a survival mechanism, and it still works like this - this is why advertisers advertise their products by placing them next to things we want to have, allowing our mind to form links between the item and the need.

Best Web Design Tips for Gaming Sites

Whether you’re a gamer yourself or you’re thinking about starting your own gaming site, it’s important to know about aesthetic best practices for web design. Understanding what’s painful to the senses (such as the eyes and ears) can help you choose the best site to play, or lure in more customers if you’re running it. There are a lot of outdated practices and elementary errors when people choose themes and add on a little pomp and circumstance. Are you in danger of committing one of these taste crimes?
