Search Engine Optimization

How much do you know about web design? If you are a beginner, you should take the time to learn more on this topic before thinking about launching your own website. Go over the following article for some useful web design tips.

Bright Colors

Take the time to learn more about HTML if you want to develop your own website. More advanced languages such as PHP, Java Script or Flash will allow you to add more dynamic features to your site. Start by mastering HTML before moving on to more complex languages. Learning enough about HTML to develop a quality website should take you about six months. You can teach yourself how to use HTML by reading books or using online tutorials.

Design TrendWeb Designs

You should consider using a site building tool if you want to launch a website before fully mastering HTML. Choose your site building tool carefully and make sure it is up to date. Web hosting services usually give you access to quality tools, such as the WordPress plug-in. Take the time to explore different features and start working on your website. Do not forget to use a search engine optimization plug-in to improve your website and your ranking in search results.

Dynamic Features

Make sure the design you create looks up to date. You should browse through websites similar to the one you want to launch and pay attention to their design. You will probably notice a few trends and perhaps some mistakes that make the site hard to navigate. Try following the trends you notice to make your site look current and make sure you avoid the mistakes made by other webmasters. Stay up to date with new web design trends and improve your design as needed.

Engine

Think about the navigability of your website when creating your design. You need to make your important information easy to find and focus on creating a simple design to avoid distracting your visitors. Create a detailed menu and place it in a visible spot to help your visitor find your main pages right away. Avoid using bright colors or an unusual disposition for your elements to avoid distracting your visitors. Add a search bar to help your visitors find the information they need right away.

Important Information

Test your website carefully before launching it. You should use the W3C website to analyze your pages and find mistakes. Look at your site under different resolutions to make sure it is properly displayed. You can fix problems by creating floating elements or choosing percentages for the size of your elements instead of set values. Keep in mind that a website filled with mistakes will not help you create a professional image for your business. If you cannot create a quality website, hire a professional or launch a blog instead.

Java Script

Creating a quality web design is a lot of work but the results are worth your time and efforts. Apply the tips from this article, do more research on web design and acquire the skills you need before getting started.

      Listed below are some useful and rather important tips for designing a professional and high quality web site:

      * Neat and Easy Navigation: Navigation of links on your site plays a big role in determining the stickiness of your site (how long your visitor stays and explores your site). Ask yourself this, What do visitors do as soon as they open your site? They would probably read the content of the present page and then look around to find any other page that interests them.

      * Clean Layout Design: A clean layout that uses a lot of white space enhances a site’s looks. Try to keep the focus on your content, use a template for this. Use fonts that will be available on all computers to prevent your site looking messed up.

      * Optimum Load Time: Make sure your load time is low. For this you must:
      – Minimize Graphics, Flash and scripts: They hugely increase your file size.
      -Optimize your HTML & script code: Make sure that your site doesn’t have any unwanted tags or unused scripts.
      -Use Server Side Include (SSI) files where ever possible. SSI files once called from the web server reside in its cache so on subsequent requests they load faster.

      * Design for all Screen Resolutions: A site that is easy-to-use always encourages visitors to stay and read your content. For site with long pages of content this is very crucial as the amount of scrolling required is reduced. Suppose your site doesn’t look good for a particular resolution it is very probable that the visitor will close the browser window feeling that the web page is not for their viewing. Designing stretch layouts that fit any screen resolution ensures that you know all your visitors see a visually appealing and professional site.

      * Ensure Web site scalability: Make sure your code and design is scalable. As technology advances and configuration of computers & their monitors keep increasing and varying it is impossible to test your site in all screen sizes and platforms.

      * Cross Browser Compatible: Make sure you check your site for Internet Explorer 5+, Mozilla Firefox 1.0, Opera 7.0 and Netscape Navigator 6+ as they constitute 95% of the worlds browsers.

      Hope this helps.

    Will A Web Design Certificate Be Good Enough To Get A Good Job In Web Design? At my local communitty college they offer a certificate in web programming and design. I have fundamental computer skills, and was wondering if this certificate will be good enough to land a good job in web design, or at least give me the knowlege to freelance? Here is a link to the certificate cirriculum. Thanks so much!

      Because you’re interested in web design, check if the curriculum includes website design principles, graphics design and optimization for the web, web content writing, and software like Dreamweaver, Photoshop, Illustrator, and Flash. The knowledge of HTML, DHTML, and CSS also helps in your design work.

      If you decide to take the freelance route, focus on marketing, as it is a main component of success.

    How To Build A Graphic Design/web Design Portfolio? I have an associates in computer science, but I really like design and have always liked the idea of being a graphic designer or interior designer. How can I get started? Any classes or certificates. I plan on getting a bachelors of arts, but I want to work and build a resume before I go back to school. I have never worked and I am 21(I am looking for a job though). Any advice on where to start? I live in a small town that is not really design or aesthetic conscious(the population is 15,000).

      I think the free JAlbum software has a nice Portfolio Skin you could use. It writes the code for you. All you would need is pro hosting. Not free as that is sooooo unprofessional.

      Take a look and sign up for graphics jobs at sites like http://Freelancer.com/ . Would help you build your portfolio. I love making graphics, but VA meds cause my hand to twitch at times so sticking to making web pages and only limited, easy graphics.

      Good luck.
