There is a lot written about websites on the Internet. There is no instant mix to create a successful website, but there are things you can do to enable visits to your website again and again. In this blog $ infographic, we will talk about the essentials for a good website. No high funda, just simple logic.
- When you write for the web, you need to say more with lesser words. Try to keep the web page titles attractive and write content that is relevant to the readers. They should get the information that they need quickly, and also at the same time have enough detail if they want a little more expansion on the basics.
- Your readers cannot stick on a website if they cannot get around. The navigation should be clear and simple. Anchor links can be used for long pages to help visitors find a way on the page.
- Your website pages should load quickly. However, you may argue that there is always more data, images, content, etc. for the readers to download. Remember, that even small gains are precious, so always optimize your site for speed. Remove all the broken links that might slow down your site.
- Be careful while using colors, as the wrong color can give a wrong connotation. If you have an international audience, be careful with your color scheme.
- Avoid saying just "click here". Write the links that explain in which direction the reader is going to go and what can they expect to find there. You can add that type of directive right before a link to help readers understand that the underlined, colored text is to be clicked on.
- CSS sprites are also a very important way to speed up your site images. Websites can be beautiful, provided they do not have large images. An image from a photograph can work equally well.
- Write error-free copy. There should be a theme upon which the entire website is built. For example, Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication can be used as a theme and the copy should be focused on the theme with accurate grammar and correct spellings.
- If you have fourteen items under one heading on your navigation bar, it is high time you did something about it. When there is a clean navigation, you can find what you are looking for.
- Every page should make your customers act on something. Try to have some form of a call to action on every web page. A button or a hyperlink to the contact us page or have the contact number on the home page.
