8 Must-Have Features For Successful Websites

website features

Despite your interests or tastes, a website exists for your customers. You need to understand basic web design principals in order to make sure your website is successful. Here are 8 must-have features for a sucessful website.

1) Speed of your Web Pages

The faster a web page loads, the more it will be appreciated. You should minimize the loading time of your site's pages. If a visitor needs to wait while the page loads, they may click off your site and not return.

2) Search Capabilities

Make sure that there is a site feature that will allow users to seek for specific content. When a visitor wants to find something specifically, they will immediately look for the search tool. If you do not have one, the viewer will find another site. Make sure the box is on the right at the tip of the page, which is where most visitors will look first.

3) Webpage Size

Always be aware of the size of your webpages and keep them as small as possible. Every Internet user does not have lighting fast speeds. If your site takes too long to load, you may lose visitors. Users will be quick to leave a website that has pages that take too long to load.

4) Content Relevance

Don't let content that is out of date linger on your website. If you have something on your site that lists an event that happened months ago, chances are you have lost some readers. Users will spend time on websites that are well-maintained, and the presence of your outdated information will tell them that your site it not being properly cared for. Set a review schedule to update content and remove items that are no longer useful.

5) Website Background

Be considerate when it comes to your site background. While some websites utilize moving GIF backgrounds, opt for simple background since these moving backgrounds can make text hard to read. Make sure your background doesn't detract from your content, or make it hard for your viewers to read your font.

6) Images on your Website

Include photographs to make your site look professional. Pictures can give your site a friendly feel. People will spend more time on your site looking around when they see pictures they want to click on.

7) Fonts on your Website

Quit using a lot of fonts that confuse people. Also, think about how fonts look on a screen. For instance, tiny serif fonts, like Times New Roman, are difficult to read. Verdana is one of those popular fonts that is readable in all sizes and colours.

8) Mobile Ready

The growth of mobile devices and tablets has made it imperative to have your site mobile ready. Increasingly the first point of contact for an internet search is via a mobile device. If your site performs poorly on mobile devices then you will lose site traffic and business.

Conclusion

Evaluate your existing websites or make sure these basic principles are used for your new website developments to ensure a sucessful website.
