Relpost Launched

It has been over an year now when I first thought of Relpost—a place where related quality articles and blog posts can be found. There are many good articles and blog posts that get buried as archives. Relpost intends to fetch those valuable articles (lost in the archives) and put them together where they could be easily found.

Why Relpost?

Huge number of articles are written every day on various subject but its hard to read all of them at once and hard to find quality content. When we google for content and articles, most of the times the results are based on keywords than on actual content. It’s hard to know about the quality of the article without reading it. At Relpost, we make sure that only quality posts are included.

Who gets the pass?

As to maintain the quality of content at Relpost, I add 1-2 related posts a week. After deciding the topic, I collect 10-15 posts and skim each article. Shortlisting 5-7 articles from those, I choose and categorize final 5 posts based on the value of content.

Content precedes Design

At Relpost, Content precedes Design. Being a content-oriented site, I’ve tried to focus more on clarity and simplicity of design for Relpost. The Relpost logo and headings use Calluna while rest of the text is set in Museo Sans via Typekit.

Relpost went through couple of design revisions before this finalized design. I was looking for something simple, clean and more focused on content where the related posts are easy to scan. The source for a particular article is provided on extreme right. Each post is accompanied by popular sharing mediums like Twitter, Facebook, Delicious and Digg.

My wife—Harjot Grewal—customized WordPress as to help me build this dream resource website.

    A great idea. It’s almost impossible to track all of the high quiality posts and articles out there on various topics, so it’s nice to have someone do it for us. :)

    And a great looking site… unless you’re on Windows. Unfortunately, Museo Sans isn’t well hinted and therefore renders badly with ClearType at medium to small sizes; it renders terribly with ClearType off and renders barely acceptably with IE9 DirectWrite. Looking at the design on Windows makes me suspect you designed it on a Mac? It looks lovely on a Mac and on Safari Windows (which uses the same text rendering engine as OS X).

    Here’s a screenshot comparing Safari, Firefox (standard ClearType) and IE9 (DirectWrite).

    http://i.imgur.com/l1Zb7.png

    As you should be able to see, Safari looks best to us designers, but it’s renowned for rendering text fuzzily or heavily. The Firefox example doesn’t look great any way you look at it. Large type is clearly showing a lack of Y-axis anti-aliasing, and Museo has clumsy hinting. IE9’s DirectWrite text looks lovely at larger sizes – more delicate that Safari’s effort, but it still hints heavily at medium to small sizes and, as we’ve established, Museo is not well hinted and so it doesn’t look good.

    There are several reasons Microsoft don’t take the Apple strategy, with one being that research has found well hinted text is more readable than unhinted text, given you have a font with good hinting built-in. Another reason is that people who are used to the ‘sharp’ nature of ClearType find OS X rendering ‘fuzzy’. I remember when my organisation turned on ClearType for the first time; they had so many complaints about fuzziness, they had to turn it back off again, much to my frustration. One person moaned, “I felt like I had something wrong with my glasses.”

    I personally mostly prefer OS X and Safari rendering, but I’m a designer and I’m not working for my own pleasure. The way different systems render text is a constraint and I have to design around it. That means testing on Windows and making font choices accordingly.

    But don’t take my word for it, he’s a great article on the subject that interviews some real experts:

    This topic of hinting might make a great RelPost, eh? Here’s another related article:

    Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That’s right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Plugin

    Superb blog! Do you have any suggestions for aspiring writers? I’m hoping to start my own website soon but I’m a little lost on everything. Would you advise starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I’m completely overwhelmed .. Any suggestions? Kudos!

The things as well worked to become easy way to know that other people online have the same keenness just like my very own to grasp a great deal more when considering this issue. Certainly there are a lot more pleasant opportunities in the future for people who look into your blog.

It’s so particularly open-handed of people like you to offer easily all many people would’ve advertised as an e-book to help with making some money for themselves, primarily considering the fact that you could possibly have tried it if you desired. Those concepts in addition acted as a great way to recognize that other people online have similar eagerness much like my personal own to figure out more with regards to this issue. I’m sure there are numerous more enjoyable opportunities ahead for those who take a look at your site.
