The Dashboard – Still Growing

4+ months after launching our Web Design Dashboard and people are still visiting and suggesting new resources!  Thanks…and well done.

This week we had submissions that inspired a whole new category!  We’ve added a ‘Performance’ section under Site Maintenance with SmushIt, a picture optimization tool and Cuzillion, a tool for quickly constructing pages to see how components interact.  We’ve also added YSlow for Firebug an extension that analyzes pages and tells you why they are slow!

Last up, we’ve added Google’s new/official SEO guide in the ‘SEO Best Practices’ section under Online Marketing.  Its basically a starter guide for SEO-ers, straight from the source.

Dashboard Updates For the Week of 8/18

All in all another exciting week for our Web Design Dashboard!

We’ve added Cymbolism, a really unique and creative color tool that asks users what color they think of when presented with different words.  The site’s goal is to make it simpler for designers to choose the best colors to use for a desired emotional effect.  Definitely worth a look!

We’ve also got a new web developer toolbar for Firefox and CMS from Scratch, a free solution that allows designers to give their customers a web site they can edit themselves.

Last but not least is Blog Perfume, a WordPress related site with themes, plugins, and great blogging resources.

As always, keep the suggestions coming and we’ll try to post as many as we can!

Dashboard Updates From This Week

We’re glad to see the emails haven’t slowed down at all.  We really do try to add them all and our Dashboard is bigger than ever.

This week we added some interesting tools to the Site Maintenance tab.  SM2 is an analytic tool that allows you to monitor and measure social media.  You can find out how often people are talking about you and what they are saying.  SensorPro was also suggested to us, its a tool used to create online surveys.

Also, there are several new SEO resources.  The KGen firefox extension allows you to see what keywords are strong on a visited web page. Then you can retrieve them for social sharing (tag filling) or webmastering/SEO.  While the SEO Workers Analysis tool can analyze and measure the ranking potential of your site.

One more exciting addition is the Designer’s How To Guide, a resource for designers on how to market, manage and sell themselves.

Just a sampling of what we added this week…make sure to check the Dashboard for all our new links and please keep sending them!
