Web Site Design Tips

In this chapter you will discover how to design a more user-friendly experience that centers totally around the user, and which allows them to meet their needs. You'll discover how people use the Internet; how to design a user-centric Web site; how to design a great home page; and how to design effective site navigation.

A great Web site is both usable and aesthetically pleasing. Of course, many people would argue whether a site's usability is more, or less, important than its looks. The final answer is in your site visitors' hands, or rather their clicks. If they like your site's mix of usability, functionality and looks, your site will be successful. But, of course, don't leave the success of your site to chance. Conduct regular tests on every aspect of your site design. Even the most successful of sites can be improved with testing.
