Building content with Edicy vol2Sep 16, 2013
All websites on Edicy are mobile optimized, responsively adapting to any screen size your visitors use. But this is just one part of being friendly towards your visitors. The other part is readability — interesting and accurate writing.
Websites are rather scanned, not read even by desktop users. The attention span of an average visitor is very short and boredom kicks in easily. This 'disorder' is even worse with mobile users. Therefore you must make sure to produce great content.
Here are a few tips to make your content more interesting:
- Combine texts with visuals — photos, graphs, videos.
- Break long text blocks into shorter paragraphs, structure an arcticle into subsections with subheadings.
Which photos to use?
Photos and other visual materials placed to your site should reflect your company and what you do there – telling the story of your product or service and people behind it.
If possible, then instead of making photos on your own, do let professional photographer help you. You can also use iStockPhoto or other similar sources to illustrate your site. Keep in mind though — personal style and unique photos helps you to stand out from the crowd.
Performing content updates
As what I've written in my previous post then most buttons in Edicy edit mode are there to help you to build your site.You can make smaller online changes without closing or hiding the subpage from your site menu. To do so, just go to "page properties" under page like icon on the right corner of your site, uncheck “publish changes automatically”; add content block with new information; delete the old one when ready and save changes you’ve made. That way you’ll be able to make minor changes online without putting down the whole page for the final users/visitors. When new data has been entered just delete unnecessary parts and push “save” button or check “publish changes automatically”.
Correct URL and built in SEO tools
When you're on your blog page then same icon ables you to change the author of the article, publishing date and already mentioned URL. It happens quite often, that users don't pay attention to their blog url and their blog address end's up looking something like that: new_article_23
