What is Growth Driven Design?

Test. Learn. Adapt.

Official definition of Growth-Driven Design (GDD):

Growth-driven design succeeds in minimizing the risks of traditional web design through a systematic approach that shortens the time to launch by focusing on real impact, and continuous learning and improvement.

Traditional webdesign is broken. Why spend 3+ months building a site who’s results aren’t proven. Growth Driven Design solves this.

robots.txt

Important tiny file...

The robots.txt file is placed in your www or public_html directory. So the correct location where to put this file is in www.example.com/robots.txt. This file indicates how “deep” the spiders can crawl into your website.

It’s possible to keep a spider out of a directory that’s called “customers” or a directory like “images”.

Favicon Ico

What is Favicon.ico

What is Favicon.ico and how to create a Favicon Icon for your website. Many web browsers have a facility where, if someone bookmarks your website (ie puts it in their “Favorites” menu), it associates a particular icon with your website in the bookmark.

It tries to obtain that icon by first requesting for “favicon.ico” from the directory of your web page.

Remove from Google

Delete your website

How can I remove a URL on my website from the Google Index? At times, Google may index a webpage or part of your website that you do not want the public to see.

This can be especially important if your site displays personal data such as credit card information.

XML sitemap information

A Sitemap is a file that contains the exhaustive list of internal URLs of a website. This file has a XML format. It can provide major search engines with information on the URLs of a website they could not otherwise discover by themselves.

In order to understand what a sitemap.xml is, you must understand how search engine crawlers work (also called Web spiders, Web crawlers or bots) – Google’s crawlers or Bing’s.
