A little, coloured cube that has fascinated and challenged millions of people for more than 30 years now. Many of us tried to untangle this puzzle but just a few succeeded. It's magic made it the World's best selling puzzle toy. You have guessed it: I'm talking about the Rubik's Cube!
You might think that it dominated only the 80's but the truth is that it has just started to conquer the World. Thanks to the advanced 3D printing all kinds of custom built twisty puzzles have invaded the market. Besides the classic 3x3x3 Rubik's Cube you can buy pyramid, dodecahedron, star, sphere and all kind of funny shaped twisty, sliding and folding puzzles, having gears, holes, magnets and many more interesting mechanisms. The largest order Rubik's Cube has 17x17x17 pieces and it entered the Guinness World Records. The possibilities are endless. Rubik's fans have the opportunity to challenge their speed on cubing competitions governed by the World Cube Association. The events include solving the puzzles with one hand, with feet and even blindfolded. The current World Record for solving the Rubik's Cube is not more than 5.55 seconds. I'm curious who is going to break this.
Let's admit it, the Rubik's Cube is far too complicated for an average human being. Even if you're a smart guy you can only solve one face because there would be too many steps to foresee. Even the inventor of the puzzle, Rubik Erno and his team has spent approximately one month to figure out a method that works. Now we are lucky because there are many solution methods available for beginners and speedcubers too. You just have to learn a couple solution algorithms and with a little practice you can easily become the Nerd in the eye of your friends.
I'm going to tell you a secret. You don't need to learn anything because there's a free online Rubik's Cube solver that does the thinking for you.

You don't have to be an informatician to tell what is the HTML code. Everyone who has ever composed content for the web knows that this is the language of the Internet.
To write a proper code you should spend time to learn the tags and css styling. There are many tools to help you compose and lay out your articles but most of them are not used correctly or they are too chaotic.
I can recommend the BEST solution for both beginner and experienced HTML composers. A free online tool which has all features to fulfill the needs of any web publisher: HTML-Cleaner.com.
On the home page of this website you can see two text fields next to each other where you can compose the content.
The one on the left is a full-featured rich text editor, while on the right you can see the source code of the document. Whichever you're editing the changes are applied to the other immediately in real time. When the site loads the very first time in your browser the text boxes will be populated with an editable demo text which helps you experiment with the editor.
We know it's a bad habit but many people use Microsoft Word or some other WYSIWYG editor to compose the web content which was not originally designed for this. Just examine the source code of a Word document saved as HTML and you will see many inline styles and a very messy code. Before you publish such documents on the web make sure you clean them properly.
HTML-Cleaner.com helps you to convert any website, document, Excel, PDF, presentation to a nice and tidy code. Just paste the content in the text editor, set up the preferences and click the cleaning button to see the magic!
Too many digital projects fail because of the absence of a deliberate internet marketing strategy or because of deficient implementation.
Every website owner should be conscious about what they expect from their website and they should carefully plan a strategy about how they want to reach their goals. As an internet marketing specialist I have experienced that many business owners want to run a website but they don't recognize that they do have to spend time and energy to keep the website updated. Or if they don't have the possibility to do so then they must hire a professional to take care of the online presence of their company. It's easy to tell if a website is actually alive and it's maintained regularly. Usually website owners just expect the boom and they hesitate to invest in a well planed Internet Marketing Strategy.
In the case of a webshop the owners usually want to bring as many visitors to their website as possible and convince them to do place an order. A hotel's website can be considered successful if a high percentage of the visitors books a room. Other websites just want to get their visitors to subscribe to a newsletter, to like their Facebook page, to donate money, to click on a PPC banner etc.
The intentions vary but they are still similar: bring as many visitors to the site as possible and try to convince most of them to act like you want. Besides the number of visitors the goal conversions are the most important metrics for determining how good your website fulfills business objectives. Attracting visitors to your website is just the first step, you must also convince them to do what you want them to. This is why a website must be designed for maximum conversion.
