Rapid Websites Blog » 10 considerations for creating a new website
Building a website can be an exciting and challenging process. There are several important points to check to ensure that your website is functional, user-friendly, and optimized for search engines. Here are some essential points to check when building a website:
- Domain Name: Choose a domain name that is easy to remember, relevant to your business or brand, and easy to spell. It should also be unique and not too similar to other domain names.
- Website Design: Your website should have a professional looking and aesthetically pleasing design that is easy to navigate, with high-quality images and content. The content needs to be logically organised and laid out in a way that is easy to scan as most people do not spend a long time reading on web pages. Make sure key points and calls-to-action are prominent.
- Copy (written content): The content on your website should be well-written, relevant to your business or brand, and engaging to your target audience. It should also be optimized for search engines with relevant keywords and meta tags.
- Mobile Friendly: Your website should be optimized for mobile devices to ensure that it is accessible and user-friendly for users who access your website from their smartphones or tablets.
- User Experience: The user experience on your website should be seamless and user-friendly, with clear navigation, easy-to-read content, and functional links and buttons.
- Search Engine Optimization: Optimize your website for search engines, including relevant keywords, meta descriptions, and title tags, to improve your website’s visibility and ranking on search engines.
- Security: Your website should have security measures in place, such as SSL certificates and firewalls, to protect user data and prevent hacking or malware attacks.
- Speed: Your website should load quickly, as slow load times can negatively impact user experience and SEO rankings.
- Analytics: Install web analytics tools, such as Google Analytics, to track your website’s performance and monitor user behavior and engagement.
- Hosting: Choose a reliable web hosting provider that offers fast load times, excellent uptime, and reliable security features.
