Graphic Designer & Website Designer Tips

As a website designer and graphic designer, I love sharing great tips and tools that make designing easier. As part of my website design services, I train clients on how to update their websites or to do their own SEO (search engine optimization), so I post many of these tips for my clients to train them how to use Wix and other tools to keep their website up-to-date.

More importantly, adding a redirect to send the user to a new page upon submitting the form decreases your webpage's “bounce rate” which can help with search engine ranking/optimization (SEO). Google and other search engines take Bounce Rates into consideration when ranking sites, “Bounce Rate” refers to the percentage of visitors to a particular website who navigate away from the site after viewing o
