In this issue:
Website Do's and Don'ts
What you should place on a website
- Dark text on a light background or vice versa
- Small-sized pictures with the "ALT" tags for a description
- Content-rich pages with easy to understand words
- Links leading to websites related to your own. ( A sports website shouldn't link to something like a bakery or anything unrelated like that)
- Metatags with keywords that are often used, like: basketball, footbal, and Soccer (if that is what you are talking about)
Things to avoid
- Difficult to read text (dark text on dark background, for example)
- Large pictures that take forever to load. Just because you may have a DSL connection, doesn't mean that your viewer will...
- One word: BLOGS
- Fancy Flash intros on your website, again consider the user's bandwidth and always aim for the lowest common denominator (like the guy using a 2400 baud modem, using Internet Explorer 4)
- Forgetting to include an email address on your index page.
Remember, your website is a reflection of your personality and it is presented to the entire world. You want to be seen in the best possible way, while expressing your thoughts. A well-designed website leaves a much better impression about yourself than a sloppy hard-to-read mess.
I wish you success in your website and/or business and if you need any help, let me know, I'd be glad to help!
