  • Sacramento web design : Part ICreating Your Own Web Page is Easy - A Tutorial (Part 3)Heres the last part of this tutorial. Our topics are:Linking other pages and other websitesUsing CSS in styling your web pagesLets begin here.<h1>Creating and placing hyperlinks</h1>It is very important to create and place hyperlinks in your website to help your visitors navigate your sitefrom pages to pages. These are the links displayed in your web pages that will change the web pagedisplayed when clicked by visitors. These must be prominent and properly placed in your pages. If not,your visitors will be confused and will eventually leave your site unhappy or unsatisfied. Hence, he maynever return. So, make sure that your hyperlinks are prominent, descriptive and orderly placed in yourpages.<b>Linking your pages</b>In page 1, you have to place the following code where you want the visitor to click to go to your page 2:&lt;a href="http://your-domain-name.com/page-2-name" title="description using relevant sacramentoweb designs"&gt;your link description&lt;/a&gt;Looking at the codes, "a" is html anchor tag used for hyperlinks, "href" is the attribute referring to theURL of the destination page and "title" refers to the description of your link. If possible, use relevantsacramento web designs in your description for search engine optimization.
  • Now, type the above in your mywebpage.html and replace the domain name, web page name, title andlink description with yours. Use relevant sacramento web designs in your link description for searchengine optimization. Then, save and refresh your browser to show you how the above is displayed onthe web.To see more, hover or place your cursor on the link. The "title" value will be displayed on the link whilethe "href" value or URL of the destination page will be shown at the left side of the bottom bar ofbrowser window. It may work only if you are online and your site is already active on the web.<b>Linking to other websites</b>You have to place the following code in your website pages where you want your visitors to click to go toother particular websites:&lt;a href="http://other-site-domain-name.com/page-name" title="description using relevantsacramento web designs" target="_blank"&gt;your link description&lt;/a&gt;If you notice, it is the same as linking your web pages but it is pointing to other website. So, we addedthe "target" attribute with value of "_blank" to open the destination page into new browser window.This will make your site remain active or open even if your visitors click the link to other website.To try it, type the above in your mywebpage.html and replace the domain name, web page name andlink description with yours. Use relevant sacramento web designs in your link description for searchengine optimization. Then, save and refresh your browser to how the above is displayed on the web.Click the link and a new browser window will open while the page where you clicked the link remainedopen.<b>Hyperlinks with images</b>
  • You may use images in your hyperlinks. In this case, the visitors can click an image in your web pageswith links that will send them to other pages in your site or to other websites you have linked to. See theexample below:<b>Linking to your other web pages</b>&lt;a href="http://your-domain-name.com/other-page-name&gt;&lt;img src="http://your-domain-name.com/image-directory/image-file" alt="your-image-description with relevant sacramento webdesigns" height="???" width="???" border="0"&lt;/a&gt;<b>Linking to other websites</b>&lt;a href="http://other-site-domain-name.com/page-name&gt;&lt;img src="http://your-domain-name.com/image-directory/image-file" alt="your image description with relevant sacramento webdesigns" height="???" width="???" border="0"&lt;/a&gt;If you notice, it is just like you are inserting an image to your web page. The only difference, it is placedbetween the anchor tags &lt;a href="URL"&gt;&lt;/a&gt;. So, in place of link description, you use image.When your visitors click the image, the page will change to the destination page.To try the above, place the image that you want to be used with hyperlinks in the same directory whereyour mywebpage.html is located. Then, type the above codes in your mywebpage.html but type only theimage filename in the "src" value. Then, save and refresh the browser to effect the changes. Hover orplace your cursor on the image. The "alt" value or the image description will be displayed on the imagewhile the "href" value or URL of the destination page will be shown at the left side of the bottom bar ofbrowser window.<h1>Styling your web page using CSS</h1> View slide
  • W3C.org requires the website style definitions must be placed in the style sheets or CSS. Styles are usedto manipulate the design of the website such font sizes, colors, font face, box properties, tableproperties, paragraph format, etc.Placing your styles within the head or in a separate CSS file let you control the style of your web pages injust one page. Now, I will tell you the easy way to create your style sheets within the head tags and howit is implemented in the within the body tags.To define a style, you have to use a selector as a reference. Basic selectors are body, div, span, li, table,td and p. div is used for group of paragraphs, p is for one paragraph, span is for selected characters,words or phrases, li is for lists, table is for table and td is for table data. The good thing here is you canmake your own selectors using names you prefer.Creating style sheets is the same as what we have done in CSS boxes. Whatever style properties youassigned to those selecters, it will affect area or content of your web pages where you have used thecorresponding selectors. See example below:&lt;style type="text/css"&gt;body { margin: 10%; color: #00f; background: #ff0; text-align: center; }&lt;/style&gt;In the above style, all your contents within the body tags (&lt;body&gt; and &lt;/body&gt;) will have theabove style properties. Try it by typing the above in your mywebpage.html within the head tags. Save itand refresh your browser and see effect in your web page. View slide
  • Lets see another example:&lt;style type="text/css"&gt;p{ margin: 20px; color: #cff; background: #ccc; text-align: right; }&lt;/style&gt;All of your content that you have placed within &lt;p&gt; and &lt;/p&gt; will have the above styleproperties. Now, type the above to your mywebpage.html within the head tags, save and refresh yourbrowser and see the results.Now, lets make our own selectors. As explained in creating CSS boxes, we can make an id and a classselectors and implement as follows:&lt;style type="text/css"&gt;#ownidselector { margin: 0px; text-decoration: underline; background: cff; }
  • .ownclassselector { margin: 10px; font-size: 16px; font-style: italic; color: #f00; }.ownclassselector2 { font-weight: bold; font-family: courier; border: 1px dashed #cff; }&lt;/style&gt;&lt;body&gt;&lt;div id="ownidselector"&gt;This is an example of using the id selector&lt;/div&gt;&lt;div class="ownclassselector"&gt;This is an example of using the class selector&lt;/div&gt;&lt;div id="ownidselector" class="ownclassselector"&gt;This is an example of using both the id and classselectors&lt;/div&gt;&lt;span id="ownidselector"&gt;This is an example&lt;/span&gt; of using span with id selector and&lt;span class="ownclassselector"&gt;class selector&lt;/span&gt;
  • This is an example of using &lt;span id="ownidselector" class="ownclassselector"&gt;both the id andclass selectors&lt;/span&gt;This is an example of using &lt;span class="ownclassselector ownclassselector2"&gt;the two classselectors at the same time&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/body&gt;Lets me explain to you the above style properties that are not discussed in Creating CSS Boxes:text-decoration: underline - creates underline to the text or characters. You may use "none" instead of"underline" to remove the underline.font-size: 16px - fixes the size of the font within the affected selector. You may use px, em, pt and % asunit of measure.font-style: italic - makes the text or characters italic. You may also use normal, oblique.color: #f00 - defines the color of the text or characters. You may use different web colors here. It isadvisable to use web-safe colors as other computers or browsers could not display other colors.font-weight: bold - makes the text or characters bold. You may use also normal, bolder, lighter, 100 upto 900.font-family: courier - defines the font type of the text or characters. Common font types are arial,verdana and helvetica.
  • Type the above codes to your mywebpage.html within the style and body tags as noted, then save andrefresh your browser to see the effects of the above style properties. You may change the values, thensave and refresh to familiarize yourself with styling properties.For complete web-safe color codes and complete list of style properties, simply visit my site.When you have already familiarized yourself with the html and CSS codes, it will be easy for you tocreate a web page.I hope youve learned something in this tutorial.

See http://breezywebsites.com for details!Sacramento web design : End of Part IICritical Web Design RulesContent is King! If you want a website to generate back-links and have quality content the searchengines love, be sure to make it readable by both people and search engines. Search engines areworking to give people quality results. Thus, they are looking for sites with quality content. So bybuilding site content for people, not only are you getting back to basics (information dissemination topeople via the Internet), you are creating a site search engines will love. So, build sites for people andthe search engines will come.When creating a new website or redesigning an existing site, there are four critical rules which should befollowed to make the site effective, functional, loved by search engines - and successful.<b><u>Easy to Read</u></b>When building a website, the first thing you need to be sure of is that your website is easy to read.When you write content, remember that most web site visitors don’t read every word of a page - in fact,they only scan pages to find what they want.<b>Break up Your Content</b>Break up your pages and use headers between major ideas so people scanning your site can find whatthey want quickly. Use meaningful headers between each paragraph or major idea this helps with SEO.Headers should be created with the H1 through H4 tags for SEO. Always use good writing structure.Additionally, avoid long paragraphs that run on. You should break up any long paragraphs.
  • Color and Fonts</b><b>To help readability, use high contrast colors between font and background. Black text against awhite background may seem stark, but it is very readable. To make a website easy on the eyes, try anoff-white background and a dark gray (almost black) text color.<b>Things to avoid with content color:</b><li>Avoid vibrant background colors like purple or yellow. Such back colors make text difficult toread.</li><li>Avoid using an image behind your text.</li><li>Avoid using bright text colors on bright backgrounds.</li><b>Standard Compliant Browser for Development</b>When developing and testing your site, use a Standards compliant browser like FireFox. If you developyour site to be standards compliant, it will work in most browsers, including MS Internet Explorer (IE). Itis recommended that you test your site using the latest and last browser versions of IE (IE6 and IE7). Torun multiple versions of IE on the same machine, TredoSoft.com has a free installer that will installmultiple versions of IE. It works great!<b>Sacramento web designs in Content</b>Of course, when writing content, not only should it be formatted to be readable, but it must also beconsumable by not only people, but by search engines. One way to make the subject of the contentknown to search engines is to use the sacramento web designs that people use to search for your site inyour content. Be sure to use sacramento web designs in your header tags, your first paragraph andthroughout your text. The sacramento web design density should be between 4% and 7% - but any morethan that could 1) be hard to read and still make sense and 2) be considered spam by search enginesand banned. Sacramento web designs should also be used in your TITLE tags and your Meta description.Hiring a web designer to come up with the custom solution that you need can set you back a fewthousand bucks.
