Web development can range from developing the simplest static single page of plain text to the most complex web-based internet applications, electronic businesses, and social network services using a wide variety of languages and standards, including the familiar HTML, JavaScript and jQuery, ASP and ASP.NET, PHP, ColdFusion, CSS, PHP, Flex and Flash, but also the implementation of a broad list of standards including XML, WSDL, SSDL, VoiceXML and many more.

How can I see the notifications?

how can the web site push the notifications? How can the users see the notifications?

Originally, this post was published on Monitis Blog, you can check it here.



In business circles, we sometimes hear that today is the “age of the customer.” And so it is. Thanks to the enormous advances over the past few years in consumer technologies such as mobile and social media, customers are the ones who “shop with their voice” so to speak. The world of blog, forums, and numerous other social media channels over the past decade have provided consumers with unheard of power to determine their choice of products, brands, and services. Because of this power customer expectations have also gone through the roof. Continuing advances in technology, along with the “consumerization of IT,” has meant that companies are now expected to offer real-time, 24/7 service to meet the demands of mobile savvy customers.

 

Today, it’s all about meeting the customer needs and getting them to buy your products. And in order to do so, companies need to ensure their applications and websites are in tip-top shape. Customers simply will not have any patience for a website or application that is error prone or buggy or one that takes forever to load. This is why website performance and application monitoring is so central to your business strategy.

 

We talk about this subject a lot because it’s really so critical to the bottom-line of a business. And it’s even becoming more incumbent today as the demands of new technologies like the Internet of Things and wearables mean that customers are interacting with companies and their products through more endpoints than ever before. All of these channels require performance monitoring to ensure that things run as efficiently and optimally as possible. At the end of the day, web performance is really about keeping the customers happy.

 

In what follows, we want to do a reality check by discussing 7 “sure fire” ways to improve your web performance and make sure your customers keep coming back. After all, your business ROI really depends on it!

 

1. Keep Things Fast!

 

Research shows a clear relationship between web load speed and customer conversions. The faster a page loads the more likely customers will be to visit and do business on your site. The inverse is also true. The slower a page the less likely customers will be willing to wait around and engage with your brand. While this seems fairly straightforward, it’s surprising how few business owners really get the importance of website performance and the role it plays in their business strategy. It might be nice to have a trendy looking website, but if it takes 10 seconds to load visitors won’t hang around long enough to appreciate all the bells and whistles anyway.

 

 

2. Make Your Central Message Crystal Clear

 

From the moment visitors hit your page you want to give them a clear reason for why they should stick around. To do this you need to deliver your central message as quickly, clearly, and convincingly as possible. Don’t make your home page so convoluted that folks don’t know what action to take. Use large font, go generous on the content, and create clear pathways to the channels they need to purchase your product . . . period, end of story.


3. Give Visitors a Reason to Return

 

So you’ve got some visitors, now what? Well, that’s only half the battle. Studies show that most will not purchase on the first visit. So you need to give visitors a solid reason to return to your website. Do this by providing them with something useful, something they can’t refuse. Provide practical articles, a regularly updated blog, a newsfeed, or other user-generated content . . . anything that will engage your visitors and provide them with something of value.

 

4. Check Your Web Hosting

 

When reviewing web performance one of the first things to check is your web hosting service. It’s surprising how many times this gets overlooked. Even though your provider may offer you unlimited bandwidth, does that mean shared service with other sites that end up affecting your own web performance? Are you frequently experiencing downtime or bandwidth issues? If so, it’s worthwhile to review your hosting options to ensure you’re getting the most efficient service. Don’t be afraid to insist on 99.99% uptime.

 

5. Use Web Analytics & Gather Metrics

 

To some, this sounds like a well-worn cliché by now, but it needs to be drilled in more and more. If you’re not tracking the behavior of your visitors with metrics then you’re leaving money on the table. There are many web analytics tools on the market today that can help you closely monitor your customer’s online behaviors. The ability to track a single customer across your site and across multiple devices will ensure that you can tailor your brand to their needs. For instance, you want to learn more about when and where they’re visiting from, what devices they’re using, what are their online activities, and other key demographics such as age. Gaining these insights will help your organization better understand what’s important to your visitors and how to personalize their experience.

 

6. Take It Easy on Design ‘Best Practices’

 

Increasing the size of your website images, third-party scripts, and style sheets come with a heavy price and can adversely affect performance. This is especially true in the world of mobile. Over 50% of all time consumers spend on retails site is on mobile devices and more than 50% of consumers multiscreen during the purchasing. According to this slide deck, some of the worst practices are web pages that are initially blank and then populate, pages where the call to action is the last thing to render, popups that block the rest of the page, and designing and testing in a way that the user experience is completely overlooked.

 

7. Adopt Cloud-Based Website Monitoring

 

There are significant advantages to offloading your website monitoring to a cloud-based host – cost, scalability, efficiency, to name a few. Not to mention, this frees you up to focus on growing your business, which matters the most anyway.

 

If you’d like to get onboard with the latest in cloud-based monitoring then you should try a 24/7 monitoring service like Monitis. With its first-class global service, Monitis allows organizations to monitor their network anytime and from anywhere. For instance, with Monitis you can load test your website to determine at what point it starts creating traffic issues. They’ll also send you timely alerts by every possible means (live phone messages, text, email, Twitter, etc.) to keep you apprised about your site performance. If your web hosting services go down then Monitis will be first to let you know.

 

When it comes to monitoring your website, you don’t want to shortchange yourself. Get the peace of mind you deserve by entrusting your business to a proven industry leader. Go to Monitis and sign up for a free trial today and let them help boost your bottom-line. You’ll be glad you did!

Hi,

My document suite for a web app contains a HELPFUL HINTS doc, which provides general info about the application.

I need to list certain system requirements/restrictions. Right now, I have only one (min. browser width), but this list could grow over time.

What's the best title for this section?
System Requirements (As I said in the title.)
Limitations (Meh.)
???

Thanks,
Steve

PS-Hope I'm not overthinking here...I think part of my brain's still on the holiday weekend. :)

Is there any free online Static QR Code Generator available?

Static means the QR Code will always work after a certain period of time.

And basically I would need it to link to a google map URL.

Hi, I'm using nunjucks, so every time I use gulp nunjucks, every page gets rewritten. So GIT sees that as a modification, and lists them as modified.

Just to be clearer, I have the GIT repo as the entire folder. Within the folder I have> pages, templates, templates/partials, SCSS, CSS, img, and also the pages that result from a gulp nunjucks.

I think what I want is to exclude those pages, the pages that are created, because they all get written again with the command.

Does any of this make sense? Should I put them into a different branch or something? I'm really new at GIT. Thanks for any and all advice.

When scrolling down the document in an iframe, and reach bottom, if keep spinning down the mouse wheel, the parent document starts scrolling. Browsers call it a "dispatch" of wheel event to parent. So it's not bubbling, as it's not within the same document. A new wheel event is created on parent.

Can this "dispatch" be prevented? How? (I use plain JavaScript.)
Is there any sample script available?

While designing for a sign-up process, I'd like to be able to show a progress indicator dictating how many steps are in the process, total. Right now, I'm using little dots across the top of the screen that "fill in" as you're making progress during the page-by-page sign-up.

My question is in regard to a particular step that could extend or contract the number of remaining steps because a step is added or taken away. It feels weird that, in the middle of a 4-step process, a choice made on Step 2 would then show 5 dots on the following page.

Is there an alternative method to make this feel less strange? Or is the idea for a progress indicator made null because of how this sign-up process works?

I'm writing structured data code for my breadcrumb and ran into a question about the position number of the item.

For Seattle:
1. US-->2. WA--->3. King County--->4. Seattle    

This is my breadcrumb for Seattle, which is in position 4.  The numbers are not displayed to the users of course, but in the code behind for structured data, the numbers are required by Google.  
"itemListElement": [{
    "@type": "ListItem",
    "position": 1,

Open in new window



However Canada doesn't have counties for their cities.  So on my Calgary page, the breadcrumb naturally will not show a "county" level.  but when it comes to the structured data code behind, which is appropriate, is calgary in position 3 or position 4?  

1.  Canada-->2. AB-->4. Calgary  

1.  Canada -->2. AB -->3. Calgary


Since all the US cities have the city at the fourth position, I wondered if I should "skip" a level for my pages on Canadian cities, but I'm not sure what the best practice is.  Should I code my structured data to put canadian cities in position 4, or position 3?

Just saw an article on Winn-Dixie losing court battle dealing with their website and lack of being fully accessible to the disabled. Conclusion to the case was websites will need to conform to WCAG 2.0 standards. Our company operates 3 websites, all on the Shopify platform. I have been given the task to find out if we are compliant.  I downloaded the NVDA screen reader and all three sites were compatible with that, as well as a Mac screen reader. My question...anyone dealing with this and what tips or advice can you supply to assist in the matter ?  Is there an official "checklist" ?  Thanks in advance, I am sure we will be hearing more about requirements and potential lawsuits soon enough.

Dear sirs,

I have CSRF enabled in my REST application.
I use either RestTemplate or Postman as Client.
How can I set the application in a way that each request (POST/PUT/DELETE) is carried with a token in its header.

I remember using an implementation of  ContainerRequestFilter while working on Jersey, and I could take care of my requests globally.

I am looking forward to hearing from you.

I am developing a vacation planner http://www.osoviejotravel.com that will allow clients to select various trips on fishing boats, sailboats,select tours and activities. The page is loaded with a database query and each checkbox has a unique ID number (id from database).  As per Ray Paseur's example in Expert Exchange Contributor, I am using sessions to store the checkbox  values. It works as described except when I add another check to add another boat to the list.  The new boat is stored however the previous selection is deleted.  How can I add new selections without deleting the old?
 Below is the code:

<?php // RAY_checkboxes_session.php
/*?>error_reporting(E_ALL);<?php */
session_start();

// INITIALIZE SOME TEST DATA - THIS MIGHT COME FROM A DATA BASE
if (isset($_SESSION[$fish_id])) $_SESSION[$fish_id] = TRUE;

// PROCESS THE POST DATA
if (isset($_POST[$fish_id])) $_SESSION[$fish_id] = TRUE;
if (!isset($_POST[$fish_id])) $_SESSION[$fish_id] = FALSE;

// CREATE THE FORM
$fishid_alt = $fish_id . "Alt";                  
$form = <<<EOFORM
<form action="index1.php#fish" method="post">
<label><input name=$fish_id type="checkbox" /> Yes
 
<input type="submit" value="Add to Planner" title="click 'Yes' and then click 'Add to Planner'"/></label>
</form>
EOFORM;

// REPLACE THE FORM FIELDS TO INDICATE THE CHECKED VALUES IN THE SESSION
if ($_SESSION[$fish_id]) $form = str_replace($fish_id, '$fish_id checked', $form);


// PRESENT THE FORM
echo $form;; ?>
