When it comes to your website, extra awareness should be paid to every minute detail
to make certain it performs optimally to serve its intention. Here are five important rules
of thumb to analysis to make sure your website performs well.
1) [url=http://www.hostlogicx.com]Do not use splash pages[/url]
Splash pages are the first pages you see when you arrive at a website. They usually have a very attractive image with words like "welcome" or "click here to enter". In fact, they are just that -- pretty vases with no real reason. Do not let your visitors have a reason to click on the "back" button! Give them the value of your site up front without the splash page.
2) Do not use excessive banner advertisements
Even the least net savvy people have skilled themselves to ignore banner advertisements
so you will be wasting valuable website real estate. Instead, provide more valuable
content and weave relevant associate links into your content, and let your visitors feel
that they want to buy in its place of being pushed to buy.
3) [url=http://www.hostlogicx.com]Have a simple and clear navigation[/url]
You have to make available a simple and very clear-cut navigation menu so that even a
young child will know how to use it. Stay away from thorny Flash based menus or multi-tiered dropdown menus. If your visitors don't know how to navigate, they will leave your site.
4) [url=http://www.hostlogicx.com]Have a clear indication of where the user is[/url]
When visitors are deeply engaged in browsing your site, you will want to make sure they know which part of the site they are in at that instant. That way, they will be able to browse relevant information or navigate to any section of the site easily. Don't confuse
your visitors because confusion means "abandon ship"!
5) Avoid using audio on your site
If your visitor is going to stay a long time at your site, reading your content, you will
want to make sure they're not annoyed by some audio looping on and on on your website.
If you insist on adding audio, make sure they have some control over it -- volume or muting controls would work fine.
