No matter what niche your website or blog is in one of the most important things you need to take into consideration is the design of your site. A good site design can attract new site visitors as well as entice previous visitors to return to your site again. A poor site design on the other hand can lead to visitors not spending much time on your site as well as leaving no desire with your visitors to return to your site.
Website design is one area that is often overlooked as far as its importance. One of the best ways to attract and keep visitors coming to your site is to have a nice looking and well laid out site design. That being said, please understand the importance of the design your website has in regards to your site’s visitors.
Their are two very important things you need to think about when designing your website or blog. The first is the overall look and visual appeal of your website. A very attractive site design can make a good impression on your site’s visitors so that it might stick in their heads and be remembered in a good way. The same goes for a poor looking site design but this is not the type of thing you want your site remembered for. The second thing you need to think about when designing your website or blog is its overall layout and ease of navigation. You can have the best content on the internet but if it’s hard for your visitors to find and navigate to then they may never see that content. This part of website design can also leave a good or bad impression on your visitors so make sure you take this aspect of site design just as serious as its visual appeal.
Getting back to the overall look and visual appeal of your site, make sure to think about this aspect of your site’s design from your website visitors point of view. When you are designing your site, step back and look at it in an unbiased way and ask yourself “If this site belonged to someone else is it something you would find visually appealing?”.

Another thing that is always good to do when designing your website is to get family or friends to give you their honest opinion as to what their thoughts are about your site’s look and appeal. Just make sure they aren’t telling you what you want to hear so that your feelings aren’t hurt if they don’t like the looks of your site.
A brutally honest opinion, good or bad is the best thing they can do to help you with its design and visual appeal. Take their honest opinions seriously and if they either do not like the looks of your site or if they see the need for improvements then build on those thoughts and find a way to make your site more visually appealing to its future visitors.
Now just as important as the visual appeal of your site is its layout and ease of navigation. You will want to make the content on your website or blog easy to find and navigate to as possible so that your website’s visitors can find and get to your content easily. If your site is not easy to navigate through your site’s visitors might get tired of looking for the information they are after and leave and quite possibly never return to your site.
There are many people who have a website or blog with a lot or great articles or information but it will never be seen by many people because it is to difficult to find. If you are going to put the time into building a website or blog and add content to it then you had better make your site’s information easy to find and get to.
No matter what niche you website or blog is in you need to take its design very seriously. A website with a good design has the potential to grow and thrive on the internet just as a site with a bad design might be doomed to go unnoticed and not have many people visit the site.
