1552 Goldcliff Circle, DC (PressExposure) May 12, 2009 -- Every web designerâs goal is to make an easy to use website, if youâre a web designer and youâre looking into complex add on to make it seem technically âcoolâ then youâre thinking on the wrong page. Basically, if a website is easy to use it encourages a visitor to stay longer and read more of your content and thatâs exactly what you want.
There are plenty of ways to make your website easier to use. One of them is to make your website short and flexible. People hate scrolling up and down and donât really have the attention span to read endlessly long paragraphs in one sitting. So what do you do? Make your pages short and chop up your paragraphs to 3 to 4 lines to make it easier for your readers to follow your content.
According to a Los Angeles web design firm, Crest Media Inc., a website might have the best content but if you write it in such a way that readers would dare not read it then all that great content would just go to waste. A good comparison as to why you need to do this is a newspaper. People read them from end to end without breaking a sweat, why? Simple, because all the articles are chopped up into short paragraphs making it easy to read so why shouldnât you do the same?
I also mentioned that your website should be flexible. Easy to use isnât exactly only meant for reading but easy to use also means that a visitor doesnât need to do anything even if his browser isnât up to normal standards. Hereâs where flexibility comes in. A website should conform to the userâs browser rather than vice versa. If youâre an aspiring web designer, you donât need to worry, there are ways to do this it just takes a little studying and a lot of hands on experience.
