Being a web designer, I can tell you that I learned as much from experts as possible to get started. I looked at their websites, checked out their codes, and even borrowed their designs. There is so much information out there today to help you get started in the game. This article is a good place to start. While it may look nice, you should limit the number of animations on your website. While it may seem cool to have your sales splash page spin, blink, and rotate, it can drive potential customers away. Flashy splashes can make your website look amateurish, which is not what you want. Sites that are going to be successful should work in all browsers. It is important to test all pages in different browsers. Try free new software if you need to PDF convert your text. Chrome pages may not display correctly in Safari, Internet Explorer, or Firefox. Before you publish your website, make sure to check how it looks in the major browsers.
Make sure your website is not misspelled to attract more professionals. Use a spell-checker to check your site's spelling and, if necessary, a grammar tester. Poor spelling and grammar will make it difficult for people to do business with your site. You can speed up the loading of your website pages by compressing all images. Pages will load faster if they have compressed images. It is frustrating for viewers to wait for a 250k graphic, when it should be only 20k. Instead of displaying the visitor counter on your website, use a tracking service. Although many websites still display counters, they serve no real purpose. Many high-quality tracking services are available and many are free. These services can be used instead of showing how many people have visited you.
Whatever niche you are in, your site should load in 10 seconds or less. A website that is well designed will appear in a browser in a matter of seconds. People who use the Internet need instant gratification so it is important that your website offers it. Keep your visitors happy by not underlining words. If you underline words, it means that they are clickable links. Your visitors will become frustrated if you have too many words in your pages marked with clickable links. When creating your website, don't use too many fonts. Consider how fonts will look on a regular screen. It is more difficult to read small serif fonts. Verdana is the most popular font used on websites. It can be read in different sizes and colors. Advertisements on your website can be used to increase your earnings. However, you must maintain a suitable ratio. Your site should not have more than 25% of its content filled with advertisements.
Site visitors will not stay on your site as long as there are too many ads. Use colors that are contrasted or with easy-to-read backgrounds to make text easier to find. Site visitors will leave if your text is difficult to read due to eye strain, or unreadable portions. Customers should be able to navigate any website easily. Your navigation links should be placed in easily accessible locations to keep your visitors on your site. For visitors to be able to make the most of your website, they need a consistent and simple navigation structure. Since I have been designing websites for more than a decade, I feel I can offer some guidance. These tips can be used to make your website stand out from the rest. Keep learning and staying current with trends. Anyone can do it if I can.
