These templates are repeated by several websites; therefore, you will not be able to create a separate identity for your company.

Internal Navigation- There should be proper interweaving on your website. The internal pages should be reached from the index page within a maximum of three clicks.

Title and Meta Tag- Every page of your site should be accompanied by a title. The presence of appropriate Meta tags for supporting it is also necessary. This will ensure that your site gets the best ranking in the leading search engines.

    It’s all well and good a website looking pretty, but in my opinion a website’s primary agenda should be to communicate simply and effectively what the website is about and what its main USPs are. This will lead to more conversions and a lower bounce rate.

    Navigation plays a vital role in every website design as people when like your site look for other pages in your site and if they find it hard to see from where to lead on other pages they gets annoyed.So the website should be simple enough visibly and informative enough to make things work.

    Most important feature of web design that many designers just don’t seem to grasp is usability. Designing something unique is becoming more and more difficult with thousands of new websites popping up every day and hundreds of millions of existing ones. Making sure users can navigate your site easily is in my opinion more important that the colors you use.

    It is very important to have an attractive and interesting web design on your website. You want to make sure that once a searcher has reached your website that you keep their attention and entice them to continue looking and reading through it until they have found what they are looking for.

    Hi Olivia,
    These days, most website owners, even well-established companies, rely on the platform used by many bloggers such as WordPress. They then just customize the style using paid themes and then customize it further from there. Probably the beauty of this is that they don’t need to hire a dedicated team for managing their website. Should they need anything business-related particulars for their website, they can just purchase and install plugins.

    Although you have made some good point but I believe that the list doesn’t stop here there are many more features that one should consider while designing a website, mostly involving user experience!
    One of the major ones I belive is, always remember that you are creating your website for the online presence and for linking with the users/customers so you need to think twice for taking any step while designing a website because you have to make your first impression.

    For this I think that your website should have good appearance, user-friendliness, professionalism and easy functionality so that the users will willing to visit your website.
