Rules of good sites
The site should contain information. Certainly, many times you read about it? Then, i just read the slit Ponder – site should contain information.
Through it users seeking Internet. The more specific information, the easier it is to gather a large audience of its visitors.
A good example of this approach – it's information resources, containing a large amount of material specific topics, and have your own domain name (corresponds to the content in the information), established firms apart from their corporate websites and domain names. And advertising and specific references from it that attract people to your “businesslike” site.
Although the, is saying, that meet on clothes, I made this point after the second information.
But this does not mean, site design that is equally important.
First, where to begin to assess site, is its appearance, and then draw conclusions, learning content. The history of branding is already close 200 years (not us, of course), and it means a lot.
Website – face of the company on the Internet, and quality of execution will judge you.
Besides accurate performance, There are many rules, to consider. There are technical details, for example – weight (size) graphics, justification for the use of certain technologies. And there are more hidden: aesthetic value, Creativity, correct color balance and compatibility, Literacy proportions and perspectives in terms of lighting and.
Plus, little psychology – right associative perception of graphic design, relevant to the site and color scheme. Often, this question is more important, than meets the eye.
3. Structure and ease of navigation
If the value of information is comparable to diamond, design – with its frame (although, sometimes, Diamonds are only part of decorating), a structure and navigation can be compared with facet stones (true, when cut, Stone loses weight). A good site retelno Reasonableness.
The user should easily understand the structure of your site to its menu, and site navigation tools should be understood. Well, when navigation takes into account not only the parts of the site, but the usability of each page. A good website should have “Empty” pages with reports of ongoing work on filling.
4. Grammar and style of the text
Errors, typos and poor literary style of the text – not allowed on the site.
No compliance layout of text, selection of fonts and their size – also reduce its assessment by.
5. Upgrading and updating content
To users ever returned to you, site should be “living”.
Update outdated information and updating the new should be regularly. Very good, when entrusted to a person or group. Often, This leads to regular expenses – payment qualified professional (web майстри) or regular payments “Support” Site (We solved this problem by means of programs developed by us).
6. Quality of programming
World wide. And the Internet too. There are many different browsers and their versions, Users in different sizes and different monitors screen resolution, have different text encoding and various fonts. But this should not be a barrier between the user and your website.
A good website must not contain extra code, and software solutions should work without error.
Internet allows communication in both directions.
The user can always request or question, if there is an email address. A timely response will leave a good impression about the site and its owners. Various software solutions on your website, may further enhance the interactivity.
8. Proper indexing and promotion
Most users will find the necessary information in search engines and link directories.
A good website should contain the necessary keywords and description for search engines, including effective response to a user's query. And the advertising company should not use “spam”.
9. Gently related to online advertising
I have already said, that the placement of banner advertisements on the corporate website – it's like stickers on taxis to 600 мерседесі. It is especially dangerous to make them into the design of pages.
The advertising system can run different banners, both in appearance, and content.
It may be absurd situation, if along with your logo will be advertising a competitor or the Free Site “content”. I remember the example, when our customers have shown a color printout (specially printed for memory) from the site of their rival. Place in the banner was inserted in the page design and the company name was added to the phrase: “there is always a good girl”.
A color banner solutions fully compatible with the design of the site.
Website, using the wrong materials and design, is not approved. Always agree with the authors of their desire to place on your site pleasing material.
Usually, there are no objections, If you specify source, author and do not bear reference the resource.
But, any way, Ask permission to use and remember, existing copyright law.
True, I tired to deal with this situation. My cartoons are wandering around the unique page, they even sign someone else's domain name.
There are quite famous sites, using other people's work, without mentioning their authors, creating a beautiful popular.
When the time come, Go necessarily the issue.
11. Placing the Internet
Hosting Site – also a very important issue.
Corporate website or resource, which does not have a domain name, can not command respect. Placing a site on free servers – occasion to reflect the seriousness of.
Another subtlety – is the bandwidth of the host provider and its distance from the target audience (for example, if the server is physically located in the United States). This results in the download speed of your site.
Also, not unimportant question – convenience and ways of communicating technical support.
I, of course, list of services and facilities (Database, active pages, etc.), number of the given place and price.
