There are plenty of websites out there that focus on the business side of things.
But there are also plenty of people who are doing the job well.
And one of those is Rob Wile, a former NFL player, a Web design consultant, and current VP of Business Development at Google.
Wile has been an expert at designing websites since he started working in the industry as a web designer in 2005.
But as his business began to grow, he realized that the business was becoming a lot more than a simple search engine.
“We started seeing more and more of our business being built on a web that’s built with mobile, and so we kind of got to the point where we started looking at where we could make this site better,” Wile says.
One of the big changes in Web design is the introduction of responsive design.
“For years, we were all really trying to do this responsive thing, which is just like a web app that looks good on all devices,” he says.
But the fact of the matter is that the way web sites work now, that means there are no static images.
Instead, there are a lot of interactive elements.
“There are some elements that have a responsive design, and those elements will have an element that has a dynamic layout,” Wiles explains.
“So it’s like, you can make this interactive element, and then it’s going to look great on the iPad, and it’s also going to work on mobile.”
And that dynamic layout means that you have to know exactly where to place your elements to get the most out of them.
“If you’re not going to make the site look good on every device, it’s hard to get all of your elements on screen,” Wise says.
“And so the responsive design thing really helps with that.
It makes it so that we have a lot less things that are static.”
To help you keep track of all of that, Wile created the website Design by Numbers, where he’s cataloging every element of every site.
But that doesn’t mean that you should always rely on a spreadsheet to keep track.
Instead of creating a spreadsheet, it might be best to start by taking a look at the data in a database.
The Web Design Data Bank is a database of the thousands of different websites that Wile and his team have built over the years.
“It’s all really good, and I’ve really enjoyed using it for all the projects that I’ve been involved with over the last year,” Wize says.
So how does Design by Number do that?
For starters, the database contains all of the data that designers use to determine how their site should look.
“They use a ton of different variables that they have in their data, like how many visitors they get, and what sort of traffic they get,” Wange says.
Wiles says that the data can be extremely useful for people who want to know how their website is doing over time.
“What they look at is, is that this site has been doing well over time, or what they look for is the amount of traffic that they’re getting from mobile devices, and whether or not their content is getting views,” he explains.
This is useful information for people like Wile who are trying to find the best site for a specific audience.
“When we start to look at those variables, we’re really able to look for the best place to put these elements on a page,” Wike says.
Design by numbers will also allow you to quickly look up the most popular elements on your site.
“The number of users on a given page can really tell you something about where a site is on the site, because if you’re looking at that number, you really can start to understand where those elements are,” Wiley says.
If you want to get even more specific, Wiles created a dashboard that lets you see the average views per page on all of his sites.
That’s a great tool for anyone who wants to learn more about how a site works.
But for Wiles, the dashboard isn’t the only thing that has really helped him improve his site.
In the last two years, Wiley has also started doing more web research.
He has used other data sources like Google Analytics, and his research has shown that the number of times visitors leave his site is a great indicator of how well the site is doing.
“All of those data sources can tell you things about how well your site is performing, and you can really see how your site’s doing over the course of time,” Wisse says.
There are also tools that can help you find what your visitors are looking for in your site, such as what they’re searching for, what they’ve clicked on, and how many times they’ve come back to your site since they last visited.
“As I started doing this research, I realized that all of these data sources are all really valuable, and they really help you figure out how to improve your
