Web Design Tips

What to consider when designing a website

The first thing you should put in mind is the content material, it must be basic. Make it as much basic as you can. Sentences and hard words that are lengthy can make a visitor feel frustrated which in most case will lead to a bad reputation of your website. Use an attractive normal font for the content and the keywords or phrases used must be clear. Content with correct headers and sub-headings can enhance the visibility of the website in searches.

Importance of a Site Map on a website

Site maps are XML files that list the URLs available on a site. The aim is to help site owners notify search engines about the URLs on a website that are available for indexing.

Does your website really work the way you want it to?

So you need a new website and you think you know what you want it do and look like?

The most common mistake that can be made is to take the approach of "it's my website and I want it like this." Why is this the wrong approach?

First of all, a new website development must take into account the following:

  1. The aims and objectives of your website
  2. The purpose of your website
  3. What your clients, customers and visitors would expect
  4. What the clients or customers or even the visitors experience will be when they visit your website.

It's fairly common to have a good website that works for the owner, but fails miserably on the visitors' experience and does not deliver the results you really want.
