Seven Common Denominators to Strengthen Your Website Design

Plymouth, FL (PressExposure) November 11, 2009 -- The World Wide Web has grown into a real jungle, and finding cool new websites nowadays isn't always the easiest thing to do. There is plethora of Websites out there. Each website has its unique design, content, markup, features, functionality, and in myriad other ways.

There certainly is! Here are the common denominators that can strengthen the Orlando web design:

A Meaningful Headline: When I say a meaningful headline, I am referring to the title tag of HTML, which is ideally shown on the title bar of the browser. Ideally it should complement the content of your website.

An Easy Navigation with Proper Menu: A website needs to be navigable. Sometimes a deeper level is inaccessible because they require JavaScript or images in order to function. There upper layers of the website should be as such that they increase the enhancement of the lower ones. A few things to point while designing a proper navigation menu are:

• Proper organization of the links wit the menu. • Link styling: active, hover or: focus.

Use the standardize markup for its designated purpose. Do not go overboard by stretching it usage. The practice of using semantic markup helps ensure forward compatibility apart from accessibility and usability.

Accessibility: Your Website should be accessible. Accessible web sites are compliant with web standards, ensuring cross-browser compatibility, ease of maintenance and a lot more.

A Site Map: It is not necessary that all visitors who are coming to your website require using it or in any case if your website is of five pages, it requires one. Start working on your site map as soon as your website starts growing and it is advisable to add it from the beginning. On small sites I will prefer to incorporate the site map into a "site help" or "site info" page, killing it in one go-accessibility and copyright statements, privacy policy, etc.

Contact Information: Even if your website is in obfuscated, it is not viable to use your email address. To facilitate this, offering a phone number and address is good, if possible, and a contact form is a nice option in lieu of a mailto: email link that not all visitors will be able to use anyway. Use a secure contact form.

An Error Page: Make a good 404 error page offering a site map on the page (easy with dynamic site maps), search, even contact info, and more.

Jump Links: A jump link give users the opportunity to jump down the page to the content or navigation, by-pass lengthy sections, access help content, and jump back up the page if you consider a top link or back to menu link a jump link. It's best to make them visible on the page, but not always necessary. There are ways which allow you to hide them too from view while still maintaining a high level of accessibility and usability to a very large percentage of users.

There is still left but if it all is incorporated in the website, you may find, yourself actually being noticed.
