3 Rules of Website Designing and Layout

Now that you have got your domain name registered, your next worry is about designing a website or getting it designed, depending on your budget,inclination and knowledge.

To help the newbie's start it right - Design your website before getting the domain name registered. Why park an empty domain on the web just like that? Why waste even a single day after registration? right? So a better idea is to keep your "small but complete" site ready. As soon as domain name registration notification arrives, upload the pages. You can keep adding value forever.

Small but complete" is what is being explained thru' this article. Keep three things in mind. Simplicity, Appropriate content and Easy navigation. Try striking a perfect balance between them and you are bound to succeed.

Simplicity: Keep everything about your website simple. Flow of content,language, layout and terminology. Considering the potential of your visitor(who might be your future client/ buyer/affiliate) and his technical ignorance, you will do yourself a great deal of good sticking to simplicity. However stylized or hi fi your site is, if it can't hold the traffic or visitor's attention- its pointless.

Appropriate content: Content is the king. No augments. Always look at content is two parts. One, keeping the visitors in mind and the other keeping the spiders. Visitor needs emotional convincing and the spider - logical. Meta tags and keywords are what will come in handy with Spiders, Visitors can be reached across better if we can help them identify and relate to our message or proposal in a more emotional manner. He will not buy from your site because you have designed you site in java or your because he found your core key-phrase in the anchor tag! He will have to be aspired... thus, content is the soul of site and you will have to keep it ticking...

Navigation: Let your site be very easy to navigate. A closely weaved theme, and therefore a well presented index will help the visitor to gain focus and think in a certain direction A SITE MAP IS A MUST. All the pages, as you keep adding them to your site should find a place on the site map. Spider should be able to reach all your pages thru site map. Another important thing to keep in mind is try to connect each link page from one other station besides sitemap. Connect your internal pages with each other according to their theme. No orphan pages. No broken links...
