Website https Upgrade.
Websites owners are now being encouraged by the browser companies to upgrade from http to https. This is a more secure system for transferring information over the internet. All part of the changes to make the internet safe. The browser companies now show an alert in the browser address bar “Not Secure” when websites are still on the old http set up. This can discourage visitors to a site when asked to interact. The upgrade to https can also help with search engine ranking. 301 redirect should also be applied, this will manage any links to other sites. In general, the upgrade is not expensive, a good web developer could implement the upgrade quickly. Well worth considering for website owners.
Website design advancement and development over only the last few years has progressed into a completely new concept. And is evolving every day. Website design started out with ridged size designs and were generally company profile sites. I bit like an advertisement in a newspaper or brochure. The sites were built with a medium size fixed width in an attempt to display on different size desktop monitor screens. This worked to a degree but often on small screens like the early laptops, sideways scroll bars were need. This meant the user not only scrolled down the pages but also had to scroll sideways to read all the text. The images were inserted in prepared tables on the site which were also fixed. The site becomes very cumbersome. The only user interaction would be to send a message via a contact form.
It was then realised shortly after year 2000 user interaction was the future of website design. Websites needed to allow the user to interact. Example a user login facility on the front end for uploading their text and images. This was just the start. Along came e-commerce, users could make a purchase online. Dating and Social Media sites, users could post profiles and communicate with each other.
This paved the way for not only desktops but also for tablets and phone so users could use this new tool while on the go. At this point website design was still fixed with a ridged width, so display on tables and phones was in miniature. The next step was mobile responsive websites. With the introduction of HTML5 and CSS websites could now be built to adapt, size, layout and easy to navigate on any device. This is what we all know and see today on our devices. I am sure advancement will continue let’s watch this space.
Website Loading Speed. It is critical that when a visitor lands on you site the web page loads as quick as possible. There are reasons why a page may be slow to load. The most common is images. With development in broadband technology to speed up the internet, websites are now being developed with larger images. Front pages have half the page as an image. Banner advertising and promotions with images. For sure to make a website look attractive images are needed.
Scripts have been developed to manage moving banner. Scripts, HTML and other coding should be clean and well written to reduce drag on the load.
It is estimated that a page should load under nine seconds before the visitor bounces and goes to another website. There are many good software programs for both Windows and Mac that will improve images file size without losing quality. A good developer will optimise the coding scripts. For a website to work correct and quick the above should be considered and checked before going live.
Website designer options. When choosing a web designer there are many aspects to look into. Web designers come in many shapes and forms. For example, skilled at creating interesting graphics with off the shelf software. Very good results can be achieved with this type of website development. This method works well with less complicated sites. Company profile or basic eCommerce web design. For more technically advanced website development, a programmer would be required together with a separate graphic designer. This is usually the arrangement employed when bespoke website designers are essential for a project, built from the ground upwards to succeed. Other Items to consider. Does the web designer have a good track record of delivering on time? Look at examples of past work. This will give a clear impression of the designer’s knowledge and expertise. There are many excellent choices for website projects. Making the right one is the challenge.
Web Photography. First impressions, first impact when a visitor lands on a website page high quality images draws attention immediately. Ecommerce products, brochure sites and the home page banners. A website is a company shop window. The better the display and superiority of images over competitor’s sites can influence the visitor to go further and spend more time on a website. This is Wow factor that should not be over looked. There are many professional photographers that specialise in web photography. Creating images with interesting backgrounds correct lighting and shadows, showing crisp edges of the item being photographed with exact colouring. The difference is clear to see. When having a website developed and spending a considerable amount of money on programming development. The extra effort to display class images gives a website a lift and enhances the user experience.
