If you’re trying to make websites for whatever reason, you have to make sure that you’re doing a great job at designing them. It’s basically what you’re showing to the world, and so you should make something you’re proud of. Here are a few tips to help you make something that everyone will enjoy.
Know who the people are who will be looking at your site. These people are who you need to make sure you cater to. You wouldn’t want to make an adult clothing site with a bunch of childish things all over it. One easy way to find out who you’re going to be trying to cater to would be to just search for sites that are similar to the one you’re going to make. Don’t copy ideas, but do learn a lot about how successful sites are interacting with people.
Don’t just start working on your website without sketching it out first on paper. All too often people start making their site only to find that the end result isn’t what they were expecting and they have to create it all over again. If you’re able to see how the site is going to look then it’s going to be a lot easier to make when you’re able to start putting the pieces together on paper instead of just thinking of them in your head.
Keywords are important if you want your site to get a lot of traffic. Basically a keyword is going to be what you think someone would throw into a search engine to get results that include your website. The better you are at fitting keywords into your page, the better the chance will be that you’re able to generate a lot of traffic. If you don’t really know how to come up with content, this may be the perfect time to hire someone to give you some help. Make sure you’re not just putting random words on your site to fit in keywords, because that can make search engine software ignore your site for trying to basically spam them.
You want to be sure that the site is easy to read. Neon text or backgrounds that are hard to stare at for a while cannot be used. People also don’t want to have to find that their fonts don’t work with the site because you’re using an obscure one that they’d have to download to see. Try using your site on a few different computers to see what it looks like on different software. If your site fails to load quickly, or it’s too hard to read, it may be time to update it.
The right kind of website is going to get people to pay attention to it, so that’s what you should strive to make. Use everything this article has taught you and in the end, you’ll come up with something that’s going to work well for you. You may even be able to turn this into a career!
