Better SEO Results using Rich Spippets – Organisations

By | Digital Strategy & SEO

About organization information

Organization information (for example, details about a business such as a restaurant or attraction) that is marked up in the body of a web page can help Google understand location information in reviews or events. It can also be displayed on a Place Page—a web page that organizes all relevant information about a place.

In addition to the schema.org/Organization type, Google supports any of its sub-types, such as schema.org/Attorney.

Properties

Each organization can have a number of different properties, such as its name, address, URL, and phone number. You can use RDFa, microdata or microformats markup to label these properties.

Google recognizes the following organization properties. In general, you can use the same schema.org property name in both RDFa and Microdata. In several cases where the RDFa/Microdata and microformats property names differ, the microformats property name appears in parentheses. Properties in bold are required for Google Rich Snippets.

Property Description

name(fn/org) The name of the business. If you use microformats, you should use both fn and org, and ensure that these have the same value.
url Link to the organization home page.
address (adr) The location of the business, described as a separate PostalAddress entity which can have properties including streetAddress, addressLocality, addressRegion, postalCode, and addressCountry. (In microformats these are named street-address, locality, region, postal-code, and country-name.)
telephone (tel) The telephone number of the business or organization.
location (geo) The geolocation of an Organization (or Event). Typically used with latitude and longitude properties; examples below for details.
logo URL of an image for the logo of the business or organization.

Creating ePub files with Pages

Learn how to create ePub files with Pages.

ePub is an open ebook standard produced by the International Digital Publishing Forum. Pages lets you export your documents in ePub format for reading with iBooks on your iOS device or Mac. iBooks supports both ePub and PDF file formats, and you can export both from Pages.

Creating an ePub Document to read in iBooks

You can export any Pages word processing document to the ePub file format for reading in an ePub reader, such as the iBooks app for iOS or Mac. Documents created in page layout templates can’t be exported to the ePub format.

Documents you export to ePub format will look different than their Pages counterparts. If you want to get the best document fidelity between the Pages and ePub formats, style your Pages document with paragraph styles and other formatting attributes allowed in an ePub file. A sample document is provided below that features styles and guidelines to help you create a Pages document that’s optimized for export to the ePub file format, which you can use as a template or a guide. To learn more about using paragraph styles in Pages, see the topics under the heading “Working with Styles” in the Help menu in Pages.

To use the “ePub Best Practices” sample document

To learn more about using the ePub format and get a better feel for how a Pages document might appear as an ePub file, it’s a good idea to download the “ePub Best Practices” sample document. After reading the guidelines and instructions within the document, you can use it as a template to create your own document. You can also import the styles from the sample document into a new document you create.

How to scale images for Android devices

By | Mobile UX

Sometimes its best to have image assets pre-scaled and waiting in their folders for Android devices to find and grab.

1. Exporting @ 72dpi web res.
2. Usually you will have maybe low, mid, hd and xhd outputs.

ldpi = 0.00625 * 120px -> 0.75
mdpi = 0.00625 * 160px -> 1.0
hdpi = 0.00625 * 240px -> 1.5
xhdpi = 0.00625 * 320px -> 2.0
xxhdpi = 0.00625 * 480px -> 3.0
xxxhdpi = 0.00625 * 640px -> 4.0

Border-radius with firefox

By | Mobile UX

You might be wondering why your curved boxes and border-radius won’t work with firefox.
Well, while we wait for all browsers to develop one html/css source

you will have to add this line of code to your CSS style:

{ -moz-border-radius: 4px; }

 

Here it used in a CSS Style:

.icon_brown:hover {
color: #fff;
border-radius: 4px;
-moz-border-radius: 4px;
margin: auto;
text-align:center;
}
