What Makes A Good Website Great?

Here is the list of features that will make your good website – great!

Responsive Design

This is not just a good feature, this is a must feature! Websites must be responsive to different devices and their screen sizes, which will create a better user-experience for your visitor. Google ranks websites higher when they are mobile-friendly. Check if your website mobile-friendly → Mobile-Friendly Test.

SEO 

Optimize your website for search engines like Google, Yahoo, Bing. Optimize your titles, links and descriptions. Use right keywords, add new and useful content, connect the website to your social media channels, improve your website’s loading speed and many more other things.

HTTPS

Serve your website using a secure connection, which will protect your website and your users.

High-quality Content

Attract more visitors by providing great content with using words that clearly describe your topics.

Easy to Read

The text is important, it is there to provide information about your product and services. Make sure to use nice, clear font. Check out 20 Best Web Fonts from Google Web Fonts.

Accessibility

Anyone should be able to access, read and use your website, even people with disabilities. Check your page titles, labels, forms, add ‘alt’ text to images and heading tags to your sections.

Call to Action

Make your calls to action (Call Us, Message Us, Get a Quote etc.) visible, easily available, preferably in the center of the screen.

Clean Design

Create clean, one-page design. Have all your content on one long page, instead of a multi-page website. Clean one-page websites are getting more popular nowadays, this becomes a more natural way for users to scroll thru the content of your website (like on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter).

Sticky Menu

Usually sitting at the top of the page. It is fixed there, even when you scroll down. This gives the user a quick and easy way to access different parts of your website.

Contact Form

Let your users quickly and conveniently get in touch with you. As an option, you can add reCAPTCHA to your form to minimize or even eliminate spam.
