Tips to Design Web Pages on a Website
1. Create an outline for every pages of your Website.
2. Links. The real purpose of the Web is that files can be linked. These files can include documents, images, movies or sounds. Links also called hyper-links or anchors may be external to your site or internal.
3. Images: With a careful selection of icons, bullets, and bars you can give your site a personality all its own. But, if you over use graphics, they can seriously slow down the page’s loading time and clutter the page’s design. Start making your graphics now!
4. Focus on fast pages: Speedy pages are always important. No matter how fast the average connection is for your readers, there is always more data, more content, more images, more everything for them to download. So creating fast web pages is appreciated,
5. Keep your pages short: Short web pages will not give you enough space to use multiple pictures. They are highly preferred over long web pages because of their relatively faster loading times. Long web pages tend to look over-crowded, which is a huge turn-off for most website visitors.
6. Banners, Footers, Logos, Headers and Buttons: To maintain consistency, your headers, banners, logos and buttons should look the same on every page.
7. Navigation. Design your website so that users can easily navigate through it. Always include a “Go to top” link at the bottom of large pages so that users can easily return to the beginning of the page. Make sure to place navigation links on each page that allows visitors the ability to jump back and forth between the major areas of your site.
8. Feedback. Visitors feedback is a very important to improving your site. As a minimum provide your e-mail address so that users can provide you their comments, suggestions and opinions. Make sure this is included on each page.
9. Use appropriate colors: Remember that web pages are, by their very nature, international. Colors play a very important part in the over-all look of your website. Make sure that the hues you use complement each other well. When you create your web color scheme keep in mind color symbolism. Check page background, text, active link color and visited link color.
10. Have valuable info. Make sure each page in your website has something valuable to offer. Correct errors, spelling mistakes. Make all the required changes on your hard drive.
11. Put contact information on your pages. Contact information reminds people that the site is maintained by another person. This means they may be more charitable and more willing to respect you when they do make contact. Answering your contacts is the best way to create a long-lasting customer.
