People have been making many website disasters, but fortunately, there are ways we can do to avoid and fix them. One of the most common problems is sloppy copy and this is a bad thing, because one of the primary reasons people do when cruising the Internet is to locate information. When we have sloppy copy in our website, we may need to reconstruct it, so we could have error free, interesting and unique content. Anything less may leave our visitors looking for other alternatives. There are many things that define a good content and we should check very popular news website to see how their content is written, organized and presented to users.
We may also fail to take advantage of meta tags. In general, meta tags are essential and we could also fail to take advantage of what this simple technology is offering. The web development technology has become more mature and many people are choosing ready-to-use modules when building websites that they start to ignore meta tags. Although modifying meta tags is considered as an old technique in web development, we should still add proper keywords. When we do this, it is important to think more like customers and we could define what keywords that they will use. It is important to make a list of primary keywords and we could incorporate them into meta tags, titles and headings.
There’s nothing more frustrating than sifting through a website only to find outdated websites. We could click on a link with the hope that we will be able to find answers to our question. However, we may find only outdated information and basic details that we have known previously. We shouldn’t waste out visitor’s time by leading them to only dead ends. It is also important to scour our website for broken links and outdated information. A section of new content should be displayed prominently on the main page, so people could get information that they want. Our websites will be much more appreciated if it contains plenty of sought after information.
Contact information can also be difficult to find in our website and it won’t be hard to understand why specific websites fail to make proper sales. This is the bit of information that could be more critical in ensuring more sales. If we allow people to contact us for specific reasons and it is quite likely that we will eventually find people who are willing to form long-term relationships with us. Eventually, they will be able to reach us through offline channels, such as phone and fax. Although we could create a Contact Us page, it is more important for us to add these details on footer or header that can be seen directly on all pages.
Many people also fail to organize links properly. As an example, recently visited links don’t change color. This is a simple mistake that has bugged online experiences, even in recent years. The purpose of changing colors of the link should give us an idea of what we should get. It is important if we have a website with many links on them.
