20 rules of smart and successful web-development

A year ago I have started to improve my web-development skills and to share the knowledge I had with the visitors of my blog. Most projects and articles I’ve created or written are still popular in the Net – The Web-Developer’s Handbook has become one of the most popular web-sites since the beginning of social tagging, it was digged, slashdotted (twice), bookmarked by over 8000 + 3770 delicious users; the articles about my projects and articles appeared on SiteProNews, Lifehacker,, 456bereastreet, mezzoblue, stopdesign and 274.000 other web-pages.

The funny thing is that as I was just realizing my ideas in the Web, I didn’t think about getting the page popular, tweaking its position in search engines or finding potential clients on the Web. The basic idea was helping people. First of all, helping me, but also sharing my work with people who might need it sometimes. And, essentially, exactly this attitude has provided and provides thousands of hundreds visitors on my page – per week.

Over the last 12 months, developing few web-sites, I’ve found out some interesting concepts and ideas which helped me to improve the quality of web design and information I present on my web-pages. Besides, I’ve realized some insightful facts I hadn’t know before. I’ve acquired a vision of what it means to create web-sites and what it means to create them well. Since this information might be of a public interest, I’d like to share it with you, presenting the key points in the list below.

So, basically, “20 Rules Of Smart And Successful Web-development” is my personal pick of the main ideas and concepts, which might improve the quality and popularity of your web-sites and provide a good foundation for successful development in the future.
