Do You Need Your Web Design Done Well?

Listed below are some questions that you want to ask when designing or redesigning your Web site:

  • Is your Web site's home page buried under a semantically worthless and iOS-unfriendly Flash splash page that kills its search engine rankings and obstructs your site's visitors?
  • Does your site utilize semantic HTML5 to tag page content for syndication, search engines, and screen readers for the visually impaired?
  • Does your site's HTML include Open Graph protocol tags that enable it to become a rich object in Facebook?
  • Does your site use CSS for page layout in lieu of outdated and unmanageable tables?
  • Does your site use internal style sheets and inline style rules that interfere with search engine indexing?
  • Is your site's page layout fluid (vs. fixed-width) to minimize the occurrence of bothersome horizontal scroll bars and to maximize usability?
  • Is your site styled with Responsive Web Design (RWD) techniques so that it is easily viewed across the full spectrum of Web-enable devices from mobile phones to TVs?
  • Does your site take advantage of the new style properties included in CSS3?
  • Does your site factor in your competitors' Web site content, designs, functionality, and SEO strategies?
  • Is your site's content thematically organized, written, linked, and regularly updated to maximize the average visit time, increase the number of repeat visitors, and improve pages' search engine rankings?
  • Do your Web pages' titles, meta data, structures, tagging, headings, and content reflect a coherent SEO strategy that will improve search engine rankings?
  • Are your site's graphics (i.e., logos and images) Web-optimized to minimize file sizes and loading times while maximizing resolution?
