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 some important rules of thumb to observe to make sure your website performs well:website, website building,website design,seo

Website Splash pages

Website splash pages are 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 that — 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.

Excessive website banner advertisements

Even the least net savvy people have trained themselves to ignore website banner advertisements so you will be wasting valuable website real estate. Instead, provide more valueable content and weave relevant affiliate links into your content, and let your visitors feel that they want to buy instead of being pushed to buy.

Simple and clear website navigationĀ menuĀ 

You have to provide a simple and very straightforward website navigation menu so that even a young child will know how to use it. Stay away from complicated Flash based menus or multi-tiered dropdown menus. If your visitors don’t know how to navigate, they will leave your site.

Correct links

Check that all your weblinks actually link to a page or valid address. Search engines do not look favourably on dead links.
