website design 2
We are listing some more of my website design "pet peeves" to give you more of what can go wrong on websites. Just because you have good information to pass on to others, doesn't mean you can do it in a way that will make the visitors want to read it. These tips are meant to help you do just that.
- Background color and text must be compatible for easy reading. Don't make it hard for your visitors to enjoy your site.
- Don't overuse CAPITALs, bold, and italics in your text. This looks unprofessional and will cause you to lose credibility with your visitors.
- Links must be blue and underlined. This is the norm for most, if not all, websites. Don't vary from it or you may confuse visitors.
- Links must all have clear destinations listed. Make sure visitors know exactly where the link will take them.
- All links must work. Few things are more irritating than to click a link and go nowhere, or to be redirected somewhere you didn't want to go.
- It may be easy to get discouraged when reading these website design suggestions. But they are not hard to fix. If you take them one at a time you will soon see your site improving. Shall we continue?
- Colors should all be compatible to each other and be pleasant to the eye. Text should be black most of the time. Designing a website properly is all about making your website pleasing to the eye.
- There must be enough free space so the page does not appear crowded and overdone. More is not better here.
- Don't use too many gadgets that take away attention from the page subject, if you must use gadgets such as pop ups, etc., do it sparingly.
- Use spell check and grammar editing. Of course, you must make sure the words are all spelled correctly. A few misspelled words and the visitor will lose faith in you professionalism.
- The page should have a natural flow to lead you to the information you seek, this will make it easier for your visitors to find what they want. Keep them in a good mood and they will be more likely to buy from you.
- Do not just write for the sake of writing. Make your content interesting, valuable, and informative to the reader before you put in online. People are looking for good information, don't waste their time.
- Don't load up your webpages with ads. Three of four per page is the maximum you should use. People are on your page for information, please don't distract them.
- All webpages should have a return link back to the homepage located in the same place on every page. Don't make it hard to navigate your website or you will lose visitors.
- Make all external links open in a new window. If your traffic doesn't have an easy link back to your site you may loose visitors and possibly profits.
- Do not link to pdf files. They are hard to load without Adobe Reader and makes it hard for your readers to use. Be nice to your visitors and make your site as easy to use as you can.
And there are many others. I am sure you can think of some I missed.
Many beginners believe that the more complicated the site is the more professional it looks. Sadly, the reverse is true. For best results, as you start to make your own website, please keep it simple.
If you follow these good website design recommendations when you make your own website, you will have eliminated many of the main problems beginners have with designing their websites. Good luck.
