Your Website Checkup
Is your website doing its job?
Does you site clearly show they way to important information like your services and contact information. It shouldn’t take a visitor more than 5 seconds to work this out.
Reasonable Load Time
If a site takes forever to load, most people will just get impatient and leave. The “5-second rule” for websites applies here, Website visitors are a fickle bunch, and they need to “get it” in just a few moments!
Do the colors work nicely? Is everything easily readable and not tiring for the eyes? Make sure your styles and colors are consistent. This can be a major factor in how long any visitor stays on your site.
Most people “google” their searches… is your site optimized for it? Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) can make the difference between getting on page one of Google, or below the first 10 pages.
People often form an opinion of a company within the first few seconds! Is your company logo prominently displayed on all web pages? Link your logos to your home page and make your website your brand!
Make sure you are sparing with ads and integrate them nicely into your site. Ads should always be clear and easy to spot. If you blur the line between ads and content too much, your content may suffer.
