5 things almost every website should have

5 things almost every website should have

A Homepage (or easily found pages) that clearly tells what you do and who you are

Explain what you do, who you are, what will visitor find on your page. This information should be easily found.

 

Contact information

The visitor should easily find your contact information to get in touch with you. It doesn’t necessarily mean that you have to give all your contact information (e.g. email can be enough).

 

Social media connection

If you have and regularly use social media than you should add your social media contact on your page.

 

Clear Navigation

Site navigation should be clear and logical. Use terms people know and understand. Visitors should not have to search hard to find what they want.

 

Responsive design and optimization for search engines

If your page is not responsive, you know what you have to do in 2016. 🙂 Also make sure your posts, content are optimized for the search engines, so driving traffic to your site will be easier.

 

 

Bonus tip: A Favicon

Every website should have a custom favicon to represent site in browser tabs.

    I haven’t provided any contact information on my blog. I just figured if anyone needed me they could get in touch through my social media profiles. Now I’m wondering if I should put my email address in my “About” section. Thank you for the tips! 🙂

    I agree social media connection is huge. Many themes come with this feature, or you can get a plugin easily. Share buttons are a huge things too. Keep up the great work here and live unstoppable!
