Your website's ability to engage people who visit your website can get your website a favorable ranking in the SERPs so to improve your visitors' experience and to reduce your site's bounce rate, it is imperative that you produce quality content for your website. Quality content provides helpful and relevant information to your readers. The type of articles that you should post on your website should be those that contain the information that your readers are looking for. It is also crucial that you understand you are writing for human readers and not for the search engines. This means that you have to think of your readers when you write your posts. If you write your articles for the search engines, your tendency would be to stuff your articles and your images with too many keywords which can affect the quality of your content. Using too many keywords on your articles can also get your website penalized because it is considered as an unethical SEO practice.
  • Say No to Duplicate Content

It is fine to get ideas from other websites but see to it that you come up with a unique content you can call your own. Make sure that you also cite your sources if necessary. If you are too busy to write your own articles, then consider hiring writers who can produce quality content for your site. You may need to run the articles that are submitted to you through Copyscape so you can be guaranteed of publishing only unique and original articles.
  • Improve Your Website's Loading Time

You can use the Google Webmasters Tool to see how your site's speed fares with other websites on the internet. If it is slower than most websites, you may need to check out what may be possibly affecting your site speed. It may be your use of too many images or run too many scripts that affect your site's ability to load fast.
  • Make Your Website Easy to Navigate

From subway riders of New York City to celebrities in Palo Alto, wearable computers are popping up in our everyday lives.

Currently, products mainly consist of eyewear such as goggles or watch-like bracelets. And for some tech enthusiasts, these new products may just be the natural progression of technology. But for many, the possibility and longevity of wearable computers can certainly be questioned.

Leading companies like Google, Apple and Nike are investing their success in these innovative product lines to persuade current smartphone users to stop staring down at their personal technology and instead experience the world around them.

Nike developed Nike+ so athletes can better track training sessions, mileage, times and overall improvement in their workout sessions. Microsoft recently filed a patent application for a product that can provide real-time data at sporting events.

Google's Project Glass eyewear that seeks to allow wearers to continue online searches, conversations and even identify a best route to their destination - all while looking straight ahead on their path.

And Apple is rumored to be designing the iWatch, which is a combination iPod touch and piece of jewelry. These product developments are just the beginning and we can expect an influx in additional wearable computers as consumers get over Bluetooth and further into tech.

Steve Mann has advocated for wearable computer products, such as eyewear, since the 1970s and even designed the "EyeTap Digital Eye Glass" in 1999. That Eye Glass design looks impressively similar to today's Google Glass update and judging from the current media coverage, consumers seem to be ready for it. Of course there are many questions regarding privacy, pricing and the simple argument of being "too connected." But it does not seem like we should expect these fears to slow down product development.

The potential benefits of wearable computers include better health monitoring, decrease in technology-based accidents like car crashes and increased grassroots management of global development projects.

Eventually, we may see the full immersion of these wearable computers. Similar to how smart phones and tablets quickly dispersed throughout populations. Wearable computers are already finding homes all over the world.

The trends of wearable computers are clearly toward further development and immersion into our everyday lives. It will definitely take some time before you are personally using Google Glass while driving to avoid the latest traffic jam in Los Angeles, but it will certainly happen sooner rather than later. The more hype around these products produces increased pressure to distribute them quickly.

In fact, in the last days of the screen is not as impressive in the tablet iPad mini did not say just lazy, but it was taken for comparison, all Retina-display in the "big" iPad third and fourth generation , that, you are not quite right. DisplayMate Technologies experts in this regard received more correctly, comparing screen iPad mini with a display of its direct competitors, which is about the same "weight category", namely 7-inch tablet Google Nexus 7 and Amazon Kindle Fire HD.

In short, the experts acknowledged the touch screen iPad mini decent, but not great, which is somewhat contrary to the practice of recent years Apple equip its beautiful touchscreen portable devices (for example, Retina-displays in the iPhone and the same iPad). Moreover, a number of parameters gives iPad mini Google Nexus 7 and Amazon Kindle Fire HD. For example, the resolution 7.9-inch screen iPad mini is 1024 x 768, which gives a density of pixels at 163ppi vs 216ppi display in the competition.

Plays iPad mini display and on such important indicators as the reflection coefficient, which had "unexpectedly high." As a result, it represents a 53 percent increase compared to the ambient light with a screen in the Google Nexus 7 and 41 per cent as compared to Amazon Kindle Fire HD. But the coverage of the color space of the display iPad mini, by contrast, is much smaller than the competition. It is hoped that Apple would take into account all of this criticism and equip the second generation of its compact tablet a decent display (which may already be in development).
