5 Helpful Website Design And Development Tips

When it comes to your website, extra attention should be paid to every minute detail to make sure it performs optimally to serve its purpose. 

Here are Five important rules of thumb to observe and make sure your website performs well.

1) Do not use splash pages Or Iframes

Splash pages are usually the first pages you see when you arrive at a website.


 They normally have a very beautiful image with words like "welcome" or "click here to enter"


. In fact, they are just those pretty vases with no real purpose. 

Do not let your visitors have a reason to click on the "back" button! 

Give them the value of your site up front without the splash page.



Iframes contents don't get indexed by the search engines.

  Unless you use Iframes for advertisement exchange or important specific purposes, it's just waste of space and excess load on the webpage

2) Do not use excessive banner advertisements

Even the least internet savvy people have trained themselves to ignore banner advertisements so you will be wasting a valuable website real estate. 


Instead, provide more valuable content and weave relevant affiliate links into your content, let your visitors feel that they want to buy instead of being pushed to buy.

3) Have a simple and clear navigation

You have to provide a simple and very straightforward navigation menu, so that even a young child will know how to use it. 


Stay away from complicated Flash based menus or multiple drop down menus. 

If your visitors don't know how to navigate, they will leave your site.

4) Have a clear indication of where the user is

When visitors are deeply engrossed in browsing your site, you will want to make sure they know which part of the site they are in at that moment. 


That way, they will be able to browse relevant information or navigate to any section of the site easily. 

Don't confuse your visitors because confusion means "abandon ship" and that ship is your website!

5) Avoid using audio on your site

If your visitor is going to stay a long time at your site, reading your content, you will want to make sure they're not annoyed by some audio looping on and off on your website


If you insist on adding audio, make sure they have some control over it -- volume or muting controls would work fine. 

These very simple tips will go a long way to make your visitors have more fun and enjoy their time on your website.

  All The Best.
