Oceanside Web Design Dos and Don'ts

dos and don’ts on your website. Here’s the list:

When you create a website there are some general guidelines you need to follow.

Dos:

  • Do place your logo in the top left of the website (keeps your company name where people look)
  • Do place your phone # in the top right of the website (statistically this is where people look to call)
  • Do place a contact form on your website (make it universally available)
  • Do include some animation on the homepage (helps draw visitor into your website)
  • Do keep your best information above the page fold (where the page cuts off on the screen)
  • Do create a page about your business ownership (gives personalization, even if you’re a corporation)
  • Do optimize your pages for the search engines

Don’ts:

  • Don’t make a big image take up all of your homepage
  • Don’t use negative text to try to sell
  • Don’t include images you don’t own (or haven’t purchased) on your website
  • Don’t make your website so busy that visitors get confused
  • Don’t duplicate text on your webpages
