Let’s talk about website best practice and what it involves

When it comes to website best practice, it’s all about making sure that your website is meeting the requirements of search engines like Google. 

These search engines want to ensure that users get the very best experience, which is why algorithms only rank the best and most relevant websites and getting website best practices right is vital if you want your website to rank well in search engines. 

The question is of course, what does it take for your website to gain the kind of momentum that you need it to? What steps need to be taken? What should your website need to feature to see success? 

Every website needs to have a call to action. If you want your users to feel compelled to act after visiting your site, you need to incorporate a call to action. When it comes to calls to action, you need to make sure that you’re using the right language and the right visual cues. 

Adding a blog to your website is another important step to take – websites that incorporate blogs tend to have better search engine visibility and higher visitor numbers. A blog with well-written and carefully crafted content will help to boost your website’s SEO score and aid search engine ranking. 

It’s also important to think carefully about the layout and setup of your website and whether your website has been designed to enhance user experience. For instance, you need to freeze the menu at the top of your website so that when you scroll downwards, the menu doesn’t disappear – you want to ensure that the menu is constantly available to access. 

When it comes to user experience, it’s important to remember that most people lack time, so it’s important to keep your headings and content simple, clear and concise. You want your website’s visitors to be able to take in any text quickly and easily with minimum effort. 

It’s also a good idea to use language that is simple and effectively conveys the message that you want your website to share. 

When it comes to how you lay the text out, think about the visual cues linked to your text. Instead of using bullet points, swap them for ticks. Having a tick in place signifies that the information is correct. 

Another way to improve your website is to add video content to your site, alongside your text content. Video content offers an easy way for visitors to learn more about your company and is a highly effective method of boosting user experience.
