What To Do and What Not To Do in Website Design

One basic thing which all website designers should know is to make the site user-friendly and not a strain to the visitors. You are aware that that there are a lot of really imaginative ways you can make your web page distinctly unique. Your objective must be to lure visitors to your site and ensure they stay there for long and not make them uncomfortable that they may leave in a hurry. Please bear in mind that many people do not use the latest versions of Netscape and Internet Explorer. Therefore avoid using scripts or things that are not supported by older browsers as you may be wasting too much time. Make it a point to test your Web pages on different browsers and satisfy they work.

Although Frames generally look fascinating and offer help for the designer, they are not convenient for search engines and they also do not offer the viewer the options of book-marking individual pages. Spend time to think about the nature of content and how it should be organized. This is as important as what your pages look like. You well tease your readers if they cannot easily find what they’re looking for if everything is thrown up on your site in a haphazard fashion. In today’s age, image backgrounds are considered amateurish. It is hard to find any professional, respected site that uses image backgrounds – be it Google, Yahoo, eBay, Amazon, the New York Times, Webmaster World, etc.

It is always preferable to use only standard colors. If you use colors that are too bright, people may avoid your page. Most Internet pages use the same colors for their links and read links and people are accustomed to these colors. If you use something strikingly different you may more confuse your viewers than please them. Most designers are fond of using HTML to make things blink but if you overuse use this feature, then you may end up annoying the viewer. Likewise, do not distract your visitors with blinking or scrolling text, animated GIFs, or auto-loading sound.

Most visitors are annoyed seeing big graphics or a page loaded with far too many graphics. Use a simple rule – if you take more than ten seconds to load your site, then rest assured your is becoming too big site and viewers may become impatient and move on to some other site. Flashy graphics and multimedia controls certainly look extraordinary, but they are bad when overused as they make it stressful for visitors to get the information they want from your site. Nothing is more annoying to readers than waiting for a 200k graphic to load when it can be only 20k instead. Graphics software can compress files so they take up less room on your disk, and thus less time to load into your visitors’ browsers. Get some graphics software and shrink those file sizes!

Another important factor to bear in mind is to keep your information and links up to date. People resent information that is old and links are broken. Make it a point to regularly check your links and add new things for people to see. Make your site user-friendly by putting up a site map on your site. This will guide viewers to know where things are and how to reach them. By doing this, you my even kindle their curiosity and prompt them to visit all your pages just to see what they contain. Then they will come back for more.

Most web designers are all the time worried how to make web pages look pretty, because they are under the misconception that style alone matters forgetting the simple fact that the purpose of a web page is to provide something that is useful to visitors. Be clear about what you want to offer your visitors and why it is worth their time to visit your site. Make absolutely sure that all the words in the content are spelt correctly as otherwise your site will be rated poorly by all literate people and they form the majority viewers. Putting some space between lines is necessary as it makes reading a lot easier. Do not also forget to use the right size of fonts to make reading comfortable. You should never put text on an image or textured background as such text is usually difficult or even annoying to read. Never harass you readers by making them search around your site for contact information. Prominently mention your contact info particulars on the top of each page.

Web designers must know that stealing content from another site may be easy but it is illegal. Creating an original unique content is a good way to get the search engines to make your page rank better. If your site contains information that is likely to be outdated, then it is obligatory on your part to let visitors know how old the information is. In all such cases, it will be helpful to mention the date on which the information was received. It is necessary that your page should not be more than 770 pixels wide. If your pages are wider than that, then many visitors will not be able to see everything without scrolling left to right. This is an avoidable inconvenience for your readers

It is pointless creating an imaginative site unless you check at regular intervals your site is accessible and works well. Load your site in a browser from the Internet and not from your hard disk, and make sure all the images appear correctly, and click on all the links. If you link to any external sites, it is critically important to know that certain sites cease to exist after some time. You will be annoying your reader if you make them follow broken links. Check all your links at regular intervals. There is software available to automatically check your links to external sites to find if any of them has become extinct. Most users expect all links to be in blue color and underlined, because that’s the way they appear on all other websites. It is wiser to do the same instead of trying to be different and making things irksome for the reader. On any web, it is generally believed that anything underlined is meant to be a link. If you underline text other than links, readers will be needlessly trying to click those underlined words only to know they are not links and this can be frustrating. If you want to stress something, use italics instead or boldface, or a different color.

If your intention is to make money through advertising, then follow the standard norm of 75% editorial to 25% advertising. There are some sites that are predominantly loaded with ads. No one will be foolish to turn on the TV only to watch commercials. This logic is equally applicable to websites.

Tips on Social Networking Website Design

One may also have an organization or friends from the same school, club, or company that you want to always keep in touch with and be updated with whatever is happening in their lives. People might be busy and so what better way to keep in touch with friends than a social networking site?

What is great about creating your own social network is that you have control over your content. You also have control of who joins your network and who you want to invite.

Before you decide to create your own social network, you may want to consider a few things first. First decide whether you want your network to be open to anyone who wants to join, or if it only by invitation that people can join. Another thing you should consider is your availability to work on and manage the network. If you are not sure of how much time you are willing to spend managing your network and gathering resources to add input and content to your network, better think again about creating your own social network. One should also know what features to include in the social network (forums, blogs, photo and video sharing). Another thing you should consider is the amount of information a user or a member should share. Know what kinds of information users should provide before they can join, and also, it is important to set privacy limits when it comes to these information. Set a limit on who can see user’s information. Lots of people value their privacy and they may not want just about anyone to view their profiles.

One good tip you might want to consider when starting out with your social network is to look around and see what others are doing. That way you can get some pretty good ideas and you can even apply it on your own social network.
