How to create a successful website which works for Visitors
It is important for us, to create the web pages that search engines will love, Index our page, cache our pages and ranked them in search results, our target keywords ranking is most important for us. Creating a useful website is important, if your aim is to sell product online, If site is more useful for the visitors, the more successful is likely to be.
Take an example of Amazon, It is the first online retailer of books and music, But it’s real strength does not just sell products, It is really a useful website in many ways
- It provides tons of information about the products even you don’t buy from Amazon
- You can save information for future also, Sometimes you find some interested book but you can’t afford to buy right now or something else then you can save the link for the future.
- Most of the products owners also promote their products on Amazon
- You can read the reviews of professionals and consumers about the products.
Do you think? Amazon is so successful if it just provided list of products to sells rather than offering useful stuff to visitors? Absolutely Not.
If you have a website, with useful content, then a great chance to success for you. The more people visit to your site, more people talk about your website. More people write about your website. Either it is offline or online, Both are important factor to promote the website.

Use Graphics with text
As we know users demand always changed time to time, The new users is already smart, He visited most of the websites so we can’t limit the website only with content, we need some attractive graphics also, because graphics make our content more attractive and catchy.
Please use optimized images for your website, the image should be light weight with clear graphics. We are already using jpg, gif, png images for the websites, Jpg prefer most of time for WebPages but now we have new extension for images which will make your website faster and more light.
WebP is a modern image format that contribute superior lossless and lossy compression for images on the web. Using WebP, we can create smaller, richer images that make the web faster.
These images are 26% smaller in size compared to PNGs. WebP lossy images are 25-34% smaller than comparable JPEG images at equivalent SSIM quality index.
Lossless WebP supports transparency at a cost of just 22% additional bytes. For cases when lossy RGB compression is acceptable, lossy WebP also supports transparency, typically providing 3× smaller file sizes compared to PNG.
Mobile Friendly Websites
The world has been changed, Nobody can carry always laptop and we can’t also access the desktop ever, but we have mobiles and laptops all the time. Most of the time we spend on mobile phone either watching movies or information, News and many things. Because Small devices are the demand of current era.
Mobile device has changed the world completely. If you have a Smartphone then you can do utmost activity from your device. If you don’t have mobile friendly websites, but you should have. If you don’t know your website is mobile friendly or not. Check your website at this link – Mobile Friendly Test
If you find your website is not mobile friendly, then please recreate your website or modify the codes to make it mobile friendly. Responsive websites demands have been increasing for few years, now it’s time for mobile friendly websites.
As per the recent survey we noticed most of the inquiries are generating from mobile platform and tablets also. If you want to create a Successful website then go for Mobile Friendly websites
When we run Google Ads, I have checked Google ads analytics and noticed most of the clicks come from mobile device most of times. This is a good sign for all, to increase website traffic and sales also. So, go for mobile friendly websites.
Navbar also plays significant role to improve the user experience at your website. Always try to keep the navigation at header of website. Don’t try to keep simple menu, Make your menu more descriptive like this:-
Suppose your website comes in search result, and someone search any information to your website or blog, if he found something interesting at your site and wants to explore more but he don’t find proper navigation and couldn’t reach to contact page, but due to the lack of navigation panel. That’s why he leaves your website instantly.
As per my suggestion we should have proper navigation and also use Breadcrumbs at your website. It is a mini navigation or secondary navigation which tells the current location of the website. With the help Breadcrumbs we can back one step or directly reach to homepage.
Most of time Breadcrumbs find in Ecommerce website, Software’s and large website which has large number of pages. But A website which have multiple categories, sub categories, Multiple pages, they should also go for secondary navigation. Navigation is imperative section of web page, It helps to navigate from one page to another.
we live in the 4G world then our website should be fast and light weight, to keep the users engage with your app or website, It should be light weight and load pages in minimum time. As per the survey a user leave the website within 3 to 5 seconds, if didn’t find interesting information.
Light web pages load faster in browsers; make sure website page loads within 3 seconds to 5 seconds, a user wait for maximum 5 second for your website.
If your website is taking more than 7 to 8 seconds, means you are losing the valuable clients, losing the business every hour. So don’t wait check your website speed at thinkwithgoogle and find the valuable information whatever you need to improve in your website.
Creative a web design
Design of a website is also the important point to discuss, whenever customer engage first time with your website homepage, the design of your FrontPage will also decide how much time customer will engage and interact with other pages.

We have to check complete webpage, like Logo, Menu, Content, Graphics, Headings, Footer, Contact Info and all sections to create a successful websites
Increase User Engagement
Whenever user comes to a website, within that time he cannot judge the content is good or not, your services are appropriate or not. But within the time he will interact with your homepage, which will aware the interest of the users to spend more time on the website and check out the services, products and more about your company.
