We have assembled a large number of external links to quality websites and blog posts covering all aspects of web design, web development, SEO (search engine optimization, freelancing, content management systems, and so on.

There are two categories of web design and web development resources on our website: (1) those we describe onsite, and (2) lists of offsite resources, or external links. We identify all external links (that is, links that take you to other websites) with this image: external link indicator.

Onsite resources: As far as we -- as a group of web designers and web developers -- are concerned, some web design and web development subjects are more useful to have at our fingertips than other subjects. There are some resources we use so often that we have written about them and presented them as content for this website. These ONSITE resources can be found on our sitemap (or site index) page.

Offsite resources: The easiest way to present web design and web development resources of interest is to create web pages of links to relevant, resource-rich websites. We have many such links, and most of them are on this page. When we have a significant number of resources in a given category, we split them off onto their own resources page. These separate resource pages are linked from this page.

Why do we go to the trouble to list all these resources, when it is so much easier and faster to just Google them? It's simple. The web design and web development resources that we list on our website consist of:

  1. web design and web development resources that are of value to us,
  2. resources we may visit repeatedly,
  3. resources that contain information that is particularly useful to our clients in making decisions regarding features for their own websites or ongoing web projects, and finally,
  4. resources we have noted and intend to research at a later time.

We hope you find these links helpful in your quest to learn more about these subjects or determine the needs for your own website(s) and web development projects.
