Web design has the F1 approach to creating a winning combination and that is starts ( and sometimes can end with ) the speed of your website. Websites are a selling and marketing tool and the quicker you get the message across the better. The downside of speed is that it’s not entirely apparent when a site is lightning quick and running smoothly, it’s the second that it becomes sluggish and problematic and it’s at that point your user will click ‘close’ and have a negative impression of your site.
- Optimise images for the web
Navigate your way through the stormy seas of the internet
There’s no point in having a beautifully designed website if it’s like a spaghetti junction trying to navigate through and around it. What you want to do is lead the user on a journey around the site and make them feel comfortable. If the site is long scrolling then consider a return to the top button at the bottom to help the user navigate easier.
- Organize your content
- Make your links and navigation highly visible
Broken Links and Spelling errors
Broken links are a big no no they tell google that your website isn’t maintained and they make the user think that you don’t really care about the website and not to mention broken links are a major contribution to the slowing down of your website. This isn’t always done through a link becoming extinct from an external web page it could also be down to user error in inputting the link incorrectly and spelling and grammar are another of people’s pet peeves it’s another sure-fire way of ending up unnoticed and with a bad reputation online.
