Since 1st of July, Astah website has been redesigned and refreshed. New URL is http://astah.net/. (You will be redirected when you access to our old site.)
There were several reasons for this renewal of our website, but the most important goal was simply to improve the navigation, as you can see we refreshed the top navigation bar and added a “Quick Link” box on each page to help you reach the information you need quickly.
Let me introduce you some of our new stuff on our new site.
– Feature Matrix
We have renewed the Feature comparison table which helps you to understand what edition supports what features at a glance. Furthermore, when you click on the link of each feature title, it opens another page where you can learn about this feature in detail.
– Our Company
This was one of the main reasons to redesign the site. We had our company page, but separated from Astah website for a long time, so I assume not many of you have even noticed it. Communicating with users has always been one of our most important values to develop Astah based on their feedback. And in order to have more open and honest communication with users, we wanted to show you who we are, so now we have “our company” page integrated with new site which tells you our basic history, mission and philosophy etc. Our inside-photos can be found on our Facebook page also.
– Astah Test Lab
This is our new and challenging approach to introduce you our new services that are in their experimental phase. We hope you to try them out and send us feedback on our brand-new ongoing projects to evolve them to be valuable products for you. Currently we have three projects up and more to come. We’ll introduce more about each project in this blog soon. It is incredible how a blogging can help you out. Blogging has come a long way since its first appearance in the late 1990’s,since the, local bloggers grow each day more and more. Blogging was initially used as a unique platform to share a person’s thoughts, feelings, opinions or experiences – an online journal or diary with a minimal following. Today, it has grown into a platform used by millions, everyone from individuals to businesses. The simplicity of a blog makes it easy for anyone to launch a blog and become a self-proclaimed “expert.” One of the most recently recognized benefits of blogging as a business is a blog’s ability to improve your website’s SEO. As discussed in “Google’s Love for Content,” Google has recently improved their algorithm to heavily focus on a website’s content and frequency of posts/updates. Therefore, if a blog is well-managed, meaning regularly updated and based on relevant topics to your business, it will increase your website’s SEO.
A company blog will also allow you to increase the number of relevant inbound links that will direct readers to the main parts of your website. This, along with SEO, will allow you to increase traffic to your website and the length of time that visitors spend on your site. You may even gain new customers as a result.
We are very excited about our new website and hope that you enjoy it and we would love to hear from you. Please post a comment or email us and let us know your thoughts.
