    Default Tips to Designs Best Homepage

    Include a Suitable Tagline
    Not everyone visiting your website knows what you do. Most people come to your website as a result of their query after which the search engine directs them to your page. Hence, your homepage should have a suitable tagline which precisely explains what you do. Including a suitable tagline becomes a must if your website name suggests nothing about your work.

    Well Distributed Content

    Many websites have a large graphic occupying major portion of their homepage and the important information is all cluttered in minuscule font. Such website simply fails to gather a positive feedback from users. Hence, it is important to collect and distribute your content on the homepage. For instance you need not provide separate links for company history, its management, policies etc. you can simply put it all under one common tab 'About Us'.

    Emphasize High Priority Tasks
    Remember, a website is a huge success if it delivers what exactly its users want. Thus, if you have a web page design that readily presents your users with the information that they are looking for, they will be more than happy to come back to your site. If you know that the users visit your site for performing certain tasks, it would make sense to highlight those tasks on your homepage.

    Optimum Use of Links

    Links are the main action items on your homepage. When your users visit your homepage, there eyes will be invariably looking for relevant links. Hence, it is important to include important keywords in your link names. Starting every link with a company name is an absolutely ridiculous idea. In short, help your user find what he is looking for!

    Provide Easy Navigation
    A homepage that allows you an easy access to the website content and provides swift navigation to browse through that content is indeed the best homepage to have. Providing a site map is a great way of making the task of exploring your website easier for your user. This way, he knows exactly where he is supposed to look the desired information.

    Provide a Search Box

    No matter what your website deals in, your visitors will always look out for a search box to enter their queries. Hence, allow a search box where your user can type at least a 25 character query and make sure it works!

    Meaningful Use of Graphics

    An image indeed is more effective form of expression than text. However, it is important to include only meaningful graphics or images on your homepage. If you unnecessarily include the photos of celebrities or fashion models, who do not have anything to do with your website, your visitors will find it difficult to connect with your website.

    Thus, the key to designing the best homepage lies in knowing what your user exactly wants from your website. The rest is easy as you simply have to provide him the necessary controls to accomplish his job.

    A good balance in the design, structure, onpage (title, meta, etc.) and content is an important factor to be considered.
