The “great” ones have certain things in common. Ezeelive Technologies has some useful tips to help you design a successful website :
1. It is important that your website design is simple and easy to navigate and use. It is also important to note that websites should be clear of clutter and unnecessary design elements. Websites should still be attractive and memorable, plus website should be easy and quick to load.
2. A Google study says that 90% of the website visitor quit the website if take more than 7 seconds to appear in the browser. To keep the viewers on your site, your website should download quickly. If your viewer is kept waiting for extended periods of time, they will become frustrated and take their business elsewhere. To reduce the time it takes to download your website, consider the following:
A) Minimize the elements that increase the file size. These include graphics, flash, and scripts
B) Optimize your HTML and script code. This means you need to get rid of unwanted and unused scripts and tags – your web developer should do this.
C) Maximize content area

3. It is important that you design a website that is suitable for all screen resolutions. This means that the amount of scrolling needs to be reduced. Also if your website becomes unattractive from one resolution to another, potential clients might click out of your website before they know what you are offering and are all about. Plus, making a mobile responsive website is must, the reason behind this is, most of the web users have been shifted to the mobile phone.
4. The color of the background needs to make it easier for the viewer to read the text, not more difficult. Examples of colors that do not work well together include red text on a blue background. It is best to use dark text on a light background. The colors used should be suitable for the nature of your website. Some examples include professional, personal or for children.
5. Popup windows are a big no-no. They irritate the reader and can cause you to lose business. It is also important to note that too many adverts on a page can be annoying especially if they break up the important or interesting text. Too many adverts can make the page very cluttered and busy. However, if your website is just to share the information you can add just one pop up just to get the newsletter sign up.

8. Using white space is very important on your website. This makes it easier to read, manage and explore. It also makes the page appear neat, tidy and easy to read. Remember, if white space used, the text should appear in other color either your page will be considered as the bad coded page.

The top two browsers used are Internet Explorer and Netscape Navigator, but there are others such as the Chrome, Internet Explorer all the versions, Firefox, Safari, AOL browser, Opera and Web TV to name a few. Various versions of the same browser also display differently. It is a good idea to have a program on your computer that checks browser and version compatibility.
