comment Can an OK button do nothing?
I would disagree with you here. If you're always having the first item highlighted by default and enabling the OK button then that means the user could very likely hit OK and have confirmed the 'default' item as their choice without actually having consciously chosen it. Yes, that might be clean and simple but I am not sure that's what the user actually wants.

comment How many social buttons?
What do you mean by 'Social Buttons'? There are two types of social media buttons - there is the 'come visit out Facebook / Twitter / Instagram' type button, and there is the 'Please share this article on LinkedIn / Facebook / Twitter' type. Which are you referring to?

comment How to present filters graphically?
Perhaps I'm misunderstanding the question then. Are you wanting the text field area to be able to enter any value manually or pick one from the list, or do you need to be able to let the user swap out that whole field and replace it with a totally different field and set of options?

comment How to utilize analytics for mobile consideration
It's probably a quite common situation you find yourself in here. However I'm not sure what a useful answer would be to this question. "Is it possible that no mobile site is pushing people to the desktop?" Yes it is possible, but I don't think that's really what your end question is. What would you actually do with the answer if someone say "yes it is likely"? Really, I think you're looking for a suggestion or advice as to whether or not you should create a mobile / responsive site, is that fair to say?

comment What is the best way to make the users rank a page?
From a UX point of view I'm uncomfortable with the phrase "I need to make the users to rank pages". Why not "I would like to encourage the users to rank pages"?

comment How to name message box buttons when asking whether to cancel something?
I'll mark it as a duplicate for you. No worries about not finding it first time; you clearly did some decent searching already, but unfortunately search isn't perfect unless you know exactly what you're after!
