More better Style Code
options, but not just for looks!. After reading most of the posts here on Feedback Days, I have had an idea. that sort of includes all my impressions and reactions to the many suggestions and complaints etc. that I've read. I would like to phrase it as a general address rather than link or cite all the posts that have influenced me. Here it is.
What I was looking for when I first came to Webmaster World was technical info on web design
. What stood out when I scanned the posts was 2 things. Code
, and Technical Terms
. So my idea began - What if there was a way to emphasize Technical Terms
the way Links and Code are? Further there are other similar categories of words and phrases that are of similar import. On the human reader
level, this might be a way to attract and keep visitors
Then I thought- what if the 'style codes' in the posting section were the way to do this? Each poster uses these new tags in their post
. The job gets done without any work from the site personnel. It is user generated content webmaster style
Further yet - Better SEO can be done at the same time as styling for readability. Here's a post on Fragment Identifiers aka Named Tags
[webmasterworld.com]. Other kinds of code could be added by the poster. For instance, site wide search could be improved
with a tag that facilitated database software. If I type a term in the search box and posters have already tagged their word or phrase and titled it or classified it in some way, that might make a more better user experience for research in the precious archives of Webmaster World posts. I am already way out of my realm here, but I hope everyone understands what kind of possibilities I'm talking about. Example idea
- a tag that styles a technical term to stand out and attract the human reader, as well as marks that word for software and search engines. More Usability, More Readability, More Searchability, More SEO for machines and humans. We help create it as we post. Oh Oh Here's Another
- If Webmaster World wants to run Ads, posters can choose a tag that will insert an Ad
in or around their post! Expanding 'style codes'
with these kinds of purposes in mind would make the site more interactive
and more of a community site
- but webmaster style
. Users don't just contribute posts. They contribute to the SEO, Usability and Searchablitiy and Monetization
of those posts. I believe that exploring the possibilities of this will answer many of the complaints, wishes and reservations
I've read in Feedback Days.
