Washington Dc, MD (PressExposure) June 11, 2009 -- Noise is unwanted and is always present, thatâs why as much as possible we would want to eliminate the noise so we can focus on what we want and not these distractions. The same things goes for a website, there are a lot of noise that can make use lose focus on the content that we want to find. Images, animations, sounds and other add-on elements serve as noise, although I know that they were put there to attract more visitors, these sources of noise distracts your visitors from what they really want to see and can sometimes drive them away from your site.
According to an Orange County web design firm, Crest Media Inc., here are a few ways to reduce the amount of noise your websites produces and make it a more conducive environment for your websites to roam in:
* Remove, or tone down, background images * Use fewer and dimmer colors (a common method is to stick with 2 main colors per page) * Trim down the content on the page * Increase the 'white space' between text and images * Reduce the amount of movement on the page, such as animated banners and buttons * Use only 2 or 3 main fonts on a page. One for headings, one for the main text, and another one to attract attention where necessary
By applying these steps you can be sure that you will have satisfied visitors and theyâll keep coming back for your content, and if youâre selling products on your website then itâs a sure plus to reduce all the unwanted noise so youâre product can have their undivided attention. There are also ways to make your content rise above the noise such as:
* Move the item to a more visible position, such as the top of the page * Add images to the item to attract the user's attention * Add, or increase the font size of the, headline or title * Increase the text size * Change the text color * Change the background color of the item * Separate the item from the rest of the content. For example, surround the item with a box * Create movement in the item by using animation - but only if animation adds value to the item
