What makes a great web site?
The answer to this question will vary widely from business to business. Over the years, I have developed some personal observations that may help you to answer that question about your web site. At it's core, a web site has a few basic purposes. First and foremost is to present information about your business in a clear, concise and logical manner. Another objective should be to establish your brand through the prominent use of a well designed logo and color scheme, which should remain consistent throughout the site. Ultimately, you want to leave a lasting impression on your web site's visitors whereby any time a past visitor sees your chosen color scheme or anything that remotely resembles your logo, it immediately brings your brand, and thus your business, to mind.
Now, lets talk about what makes a not so great web site:
In this day and age, time is a precious commodity for most people and businesses. With that in mind, there are a few things that should be avoided when designing an effective web site. One pet peeve of mine is the use of a Flash based introduction or presentation. I don't generally have the time, nor the desire, to view a fancy presentation upon arrival to your site. A "skip intro" link does not help, as you have already irritated me from the start - what a great first impression! Flash presentations and movies have their place, but the viewer should always be given the choice to initiate viewing and not be forced or expected to view it upon arrival to your site. Another thing that irritates me to no end is audio in a web page. I visit a web site to obtain meaningful information, not to hear your theme song or latest promotional jingle. I also work late on many nights and do not appreciate unexpected audio blaring through my speakers waking the rest of the house. Again, audio is fine if the visitor is given the choice to initiate it. Otherwise, it's an unwelcome intrusion.
I have also seen web sites that are designed entirely using Flash which force the user to utilize only the navigation links built into the site. This seems all well and good until one considers that most people are creatures of habit and will automatically hit their browser's back button to return to the last page they viewed. On these sites, this usually results in the user being taken away from your site and back to the search page from which they found you in the first place where, having been involuntarily tossed off your site, they will likely not return and opt to visit one of your competitors instead. Not the intended result, indeed.
