Tech Terms

There are probably some terms you have heard that are unfamiliar to you. Don’t worry, we can help with that. As a digital marketing firm, we have a vernacular that might be odd to other people. Below we have listed some terms that we at Color Fire us on a daily basis. If you have any questions about any terms we may use, direct them to us, or this web page.

What is a URL?

What is a browser?

A browser is what you use to search the internet. For example: Google Chrome, Firefox, and Safari.

What is a CMS?

CMS stands for Content Management System. Simply put, it is a web-based tool for you to manage the text, images, and other content within your website. All you need is access to the internet.

What is a wireframe?

A wireframe is a visual representation of the requirements for a project. It may be a flow-diagram of a sitemap, or how information will be processed through a website. It may also be a high-level mock-up of how the proposed website might look. Wireframes don’t include color-schemes and graphics. Think of it as someone sketching out a rough draft on paper.
Wireframes are great ways for clients to understand and approve work to be done…especially with more complex projects that may include online forms.

What is a scope?

No, this isn’t a medical term. A scope is a written proposal that outlines the details of the project. This includes suggested Site OnCall© modules to be utilized, an outline of the new sitemap to be used, along with projected hours and pricing to complete the project.

What is a site map?

A site map is an outline of your website with a list of pages that will be included, and the navigation structure. Below is an example. The items in ALL CAPS would represent the top-level navigation (main links), and the others listed below would be pages linked through a drop-down menu.

What is PHP?

PHP is a programming language. Unlike building straight HTML pages, we build database-driven website solutions. We use PHP to connect information stored within a database to the public-facing website pages. Yes, this is a VERY basic explanation, but if you want to learn more, just Google it!

What is responsive web design?

Responsive web design (RWD) is a web design approach aimed at crafting sites to provide an optimal viewing experience —easy reading and simple, inuitive navigation with a minimum amount of resizing, panning, and scrolling by a site visitor — across a wide range of mobile devices, as well as traditional desktop computers.

What is SEO?

SEO stands for search engine optimization, which is the process of affecting the visibility of a website or a web page within a search engine’s “natural” or un-paid (organic) search results. All major search engines such as Google, Yahoo!, and Bing have such results, where web pages and other content are shown and ranked based on what the search engine considers most relevant to users. Optimizing your site ensures pages on your site rank higher for web users looking for specificially targeted search terms.
