In the event of making a new website or restructuring the one existing, it would be prudent to follow some of the rules of webdesign, so that it remains functional as well as generates traffic with the help of relative search engine optimization as well as user appeal.
While designing a website, there are some rules concerning the quality and legibility of content, browser compliance and user friendly features.
In webdesign, quality and legibility of content is considered to be the main thing which include numerous design factors, format of the writing, the colour combination so that maximum number of people are inclined to go through it. It would be better if sharp and bright colours are avoided during webdesign to ensure that the reader don’t feel strained while going through the content and another factor to be included in the basics would be not to make use of any background image, lest it hinders the reader in any way and comes in between effective communication.
It is understood that not majority of the readers does not read each and every content that is posted; hence during the process of webdesign it should be maintained so that the readers get access to the most important feature merely through a cursory glance.
It is also considered a fairly user friendly practice to avoid the usage of lengthy paragraphs and include important headings and breaks for easy skimming.
Browser compliance is a very important aspect to each and every project that is related with design. It is incumbent that during the process of webdesign, the pages are tested on the standard and the popular browsing platforms such as Google Chrome, Internet Explores, Mozilla Firefox and such.
As for adding as many user friendly features as possible, it is the designer’s responsibility to incorporate every possible tool in order to ensure simplified navigation and a fun experience in browsing for the webpage’s visitors. By employing the use of links and menus, a smoother link for the flow of information should be propagated from a page to the next. The basic rule for webdesign indicates that the visitor should be able to find the desired information, if present, within the initial three clicks of the mouse.
If a person is able to instill relatively more navigation points for the users, they will help in easing the navigation process for the online visitors. There are relatively easy components, that if incorporated, can help in the easy navigation of the page through, such as the top menu, drop down menus, etc. these can help in the cross navigation via numerous sections of the website without making the user going through all the pages to reach the home page.
Besides quality and legibility of content, and browser compliance, another factor that needs to be utmost importance during the process of webdesign is the maintenance of structure and consistency which should be managed throughout the website as well as keeping a reduced page weight which helps in saving the loading time of the webpage for users.
