Hover.css – CSS3 Library With More Than 40 Hovering Effects

1 Share

When dealing with the issue of trying to get a users attention, there are many ways for you to achieve this. For special cases, hover is a great way to draw attention to a link or button. Normally, hover works by changing the element color or gradient state when users move their cursors over it. But with a lot of features in CSS3, a lot of things can also be customized with the hover effect. One of them is applying animation. And Hover.css can make it happen with ease.

Hover.css is a free CSS library to easily apply animation using the hover effect. You can apply the hover in call to actions, buttons, logos, images and much more. This library comes with over 40 effects to choose from and they’re categorized according to the following: 2D transforms, border transitions, shadow and glow transitions, speech bubbles, and page curls.

Getting Started With Hover

To get started, you need to download Hover then put the hover.css file into your project folder. Or if you prefer, you may use hover-min.css, a more compact version, which is smaller and quicker to load. Lastly, link the file into your web page like so:

 <head> .. <link href="css/hover.css" rel="stylesheet"> .. </head> 

Adding Hover Into An Element

To add a cool hover effect into your element, just include the effect name into the element class. You can see the live demo of all available effects in the Hover landing page. Make sure to only use lowercase letters and if it has space in between, simply replace it with a dash.

Let’s say, I have the following link markup:

 <a href="#" class="btn">SUBMIT</a> 

If styled properly, the link comes out like so:

The link has changed to look like a button. But when I move the cursor over it, the button won’t change and stays static. With one of Hover effect, Hover Shadow, I edit the markup and add it a class like so:

 <a href="#" class="btn hover-shadow">SUBMIT</a> 

Now the button has a cool hover effect floating with a shadow underneath it just like the following GIF demo.

Some Hack And Customisation

If you open hover.css with an editor, you’ll find that each effect comes with some default properties. These properties give the element the most desired result both for the display and the look. Below are the default properties, go ahead and customize them to meet your needs:

  • display : required for an effect to work.
  • transform : used for CSS3 transforms to improve the performance on mobile and tablet
  • box-shadow : give transparent box shadow causing edges of CSS3 transformed elements on mobile/tablet look smoother

Final Thought

Hover is another best practice of CSS3 implementation. But as most of the effects such as transitions, transforms and animations are using new CSS3 features, you will need to do some extra work on old browsers that don’t support these features to make sure that the fallback hover effect works well.

Announcing the All-New Beginner's Guide to Link Building

1 Share

Posted by Trevor-Klein

It is my great pleasure to announce the release of Moz's third guide for marketers, written by the inimitable  Paddy Moogan of Distilled:

The Beginner's Guide to Link Building

We could tell you all about how high-quality, authoritative links pointing to your site benefit your standing in the SERPs, but instead we'll just copy the words straight from the proverbial horse's mouth:

"Backlinks, even though there’s some noise and certainly a lot of spam, for the most part are still a really, really big win in terms of quality for search results."
— Matt Cutts, head of the webspam team at Google, 
2/19/14

Link building buliding is one area of SEO that has changed significantly over the last several years;  some tactics that were once effective are now easily identifiable and penalized by Google. At the same time, earning links remains vital to success in search marketing: Link authority features showed the strongest correlation with higher rankings in our 2013 ranking factors survey. For that reason, it has never been more important for marketers to truly earn their links, and this guide will have you building effective campaigns in no time.


What you'll learn


1. What is Link Building, and Why Is It Important?

This is where it all begins. If you're brand new to link building and aren't sure whether or not it's a good tactic to include in your marketing repertoire, give this chapter a look. Even the more seasoned link earners among us could use a refresher from time to time, and here we cover everything from what links mean to search engines to the various ways they can help your business's bottom line.


2. Types of Links (Both Good and Bad)

Before you dive into building links of your own, it's important to understand the three main types of links and why you should really only be thinking about two of them. That's what this short and sweet chapter is all about.


3. How to Start a Link Building Campaign

Okay, enough with the theory; it's time for the nitty-gritty. This chapter takes a deep dive into every step of a link building campaign, offering examples and templates you can use to build your own foundation. 


4. Link Building Tactics

Whether through ego bait or guest blogging (yes, that's  still a viable tactic!), there are several approaches you can take to building a strong link profile. This chapter takes a detailed run through the tactics you're most likely to employ.


5. Link Building Metrics

Now that the links are rolling in, how do you prove to ourselves and our clients that our work is paying off? The metrics outlined in this chapter, along with the tools recommended to measure them, offer a number of options for your reports.


6. The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly of Link Building

If we're preaching to the choir with this chapter, then we're thrilled, because spammy links can lead to severe penalties. Google has gotten incredibly good at picking out and penalizing spammy link building techniques, and if this chapter isn't enough to make you put your white hat on, nothing is.


7. Advanced Link Building Tips and Tricks

Mastered the rest of what the guide has to offer? Earning links faster than  John Paulson earns cash? Here are a few tips to take your link building to the next level. Caution: You may or may not find yourself throwing fireballs after mastering these techniques.


The PDF

When we released the Beginner's Guide to Social Media, there was an instant demand for a downloadable PDF version. This time, it's ready from the get-go (big thanks to David O'Hara!).

Click here to download the PDF.

Thanks

We simply can't thank Paddy Moogan enough for writing this guide. His expertise and wisdom made the project possible. Thanks as well to Ashley Tate for wrangling the early stages of the project, Cyrus Shepard for his expert review and a few key additions, Derric Wise and David O'Hara for bringing it to life with their art, and Andrew Palmer for seamlessly translating everything onto the web.

Now, go forth and earn those links!


Sign up for The Moz Top 10, a semimonthly mailer updating you on the top ten hottest pieces of SEO news, tips, and rad links uncovered by the Moz team. Think of it as your exclusive digest of stuff you don't have time to hunt down but want to read!

Making site moves easier

1 Share
Webmaster level: intermediate-advanced
Few topics confuse and scare webmasters more than site moves. To help you avoid surprises, we've created an in-depth guide on how to handle site moves in a Googlebot-friendly way. So what, exactly, is a site move and how do you go about moving a site correctly?

Basics of site moves

A site move is, broadly, one of two types of content migrations:
  • Site moves without URL changes. Only the underlying infrastructure serving the website is changed without any visible changes to the URL structure. For example, you might move www.example.com to a different hosting provider while keeping the same URLs and site structure on www.example.com.
  • Site moves with URL changes. Here, the URLs on the website change in any number of ways:
    • The protocol: http://www.example.com to https://www.example.com
    • The domain name: example.com to example.net
    • The URL paths: http://example.com/page.php?id=1 to http://example.com/widget
We've seen cases where webmasters implemented site moves incorrectly, or missed out steps that would have greatly increased the chances of the site move completing successfully. To help webmasters design and implement site moves correctly, we've updated the site move guidelines in our Help Center. In parallel, we continue to improve our crawling and indexing systems to detect and handle site moves if you follow our guidelines.

Moving to responsive web design

A related increasingly-common question we're seeing is how can a website move from having separate mobile URLs or dynamic serving to using responsive web design. To help you implement this configuration change, please see this new page on our smartphones recommendations site.
And, as always, please ask on our Webmaster Help forums if you have more questions.
