If you want a website, whether it be for a hobby, business or personal here is a checklist of things to consider.
- What is the purpose of your website? To entertain / inform / sell?
- Good navigation is essential – people need to be able to find things easily.
- A website needs updating to keep it fresh.
- Keep an eye on your website statistics – who is visiting you and from where?
- Always remember to keep in mind who is likely to be looking at your site. Get them to find you and stay to read all about you.
- This is really hard but your website will be viewed on different computers, telephones, screen sizes and browsers – you need to think about how it will look on each of them!
- Text should not be underlined unless it is a link – it gets confusing otherwise. To make something stand out, change the colour, make the font bigger, bolder or even change the font.
- Get someone else to test your website before it goes live. Does the wording make sense? Does the navigation work? Is everything clear?
- Use graphics and images to enhance your website and not detract from it.
- Think about what you find annoying on other websites and don’t use them on your own.
