This article is for people who are new to web designing and want some idea how to design your web site so as to gain maximum traffic on their website.Here in this article i will show you how to present information want in your web site. Many people while designing their web sites do not consider the needs of the user .I myself,a few days back was looking for some information.

Like all of us do,i opened google and typed in the keywords and i certainly got many good links on the screen .I went on and clicked on one of the link.On reaching the page,i found some more links but no information .I went inside the link looking for information and again i found more links but still no valuable information .I got frustrated and i logged off from the net.You see what happens when you go to find something on the web.It is a huge mess of millions of links with very little raw information .So first understand the needs and then give what you have to present .You don't have to design the page more flashy and with moving pictures,adds,banners etc. Retinal studies have shown that web surfers actually avoid banners. Yes, their eyes look away! Click throughs have plummeted to under half-of-a-percent.People just don't like banners on a web page. Try to include text links than adds or banners. Make the site more simple in view.Have a clean web site.Even keeping a white background and black text is enough for enticing people .What matters is the content of the site and the valuable information it is presenting.

It is indeed good to make the site more attractive and more lively but the fact is that most of the people don't know how to do it the right way.The design should be simple and soothing to eyes.The best thing to confirm this is to send your design to your friends and ask for their advise .Your main purpose should be to convey your views and idea's as quickly and as simply as possible .Don't make them run from one link to another because that will result in loss of interest in your website.The web site should be properly linked.Every page should contain link to every other page in your website.Everything should be in front of the eye and easy to reach.

Give attractive text to each of your link.Say something that is tempting and makes them to click it.Select the keywords that describe's your page the best.Do not trick people here because the most important thing is to build trust,so that people come to your site again and again.If you include hundreds of links to other web sites in your web site and think that you are providing a bank of information to your customers.You are wrong .Avoid it.If you still want to include links to site, put very few links giving in detail what these sites offer and when and why to visit them .make sure that the sites are offering valuable and quality data.

Visit each of the site personally and ensure that it is a good link,relevent to the data in your site.Remember your every move,every link,every page leaves a mark on the customers mind about your web site,so be carefull in providing these links.The last and foremost important thing is to be honest.Donot play any tricks or provide fake links just to make the site more filled with information.
