A website is the nerve center of your Internet activity. It will remain a dud if people don’t visit it. It has, therefore, to be designed in such a manner that not only people visit it but also find their experience a happy one so that they visit it again and again. Here are certain steps to design your website:
Imagine someone clicking on your website link and waiting and waiting for it to load! There are thousands of competing websites dealing with your subject. Web searchers are impatient people. They at once close your site and click on the next one inviting to be clicked open.
Your website should not take more than 15 minutes to load. One reason why websites take time to load is the large number of images in them. Some of the most visited websites in the world such as Yahoo, Amazon, Google and Ebay do not carry many images on their pages, therefore, take a little time to load.
Navigation links allow the visitors to move around your site and find the information that they are looking for. Once the home page or any other page of your site has opened up, let not the visitor look around to find the navigation menu. It must be visible to him the first thing the page opens. Your menu tabs should preferably be displayed prominently on the top front.
Some people place the navigation links on the left while others also recommend putting them at the bottom of the page as well so that the visitor does not have to scroll up the page to locate the navigation menu and waste his time. Therefore, make all the important information in your website easily accessible from all its parts.
There are several page resolution options ranging from 640 x 480 to 1024 x 768 and some are even higher. You should try to decide your resolution in terms of percentage and not pixels. It should be noted that a page with higher resolution can contain more content. It also reduces the need for scrolling. The page resolution should be uniform all over the website.
Do not make the font comic, fancy, flashy, convoluted and therefore unreadable. It is also necessary that the color scheme of the website should be carefully selected. A dark colored font on a darker background or a bright pink color on green is the sure way to repel the reader. Arial, Verdana, Times New Roman and Tahoma are some of the popular fonts.
