What`s So Special About Your Site? - The Design
(Page 2 of 4 )
When you begin creating any Web page, youíll start with nothing much other than an empty, white box. (Yahooís HTML editor is pictured below):
Within this HTML editor, youíll start to place the codes which will create stunning backgrounds, vivid images, catchy text -- everything, in fact, you need to create a Web site. You have a completely blank palette with which to create your Internet art. But donít forget that you arenít really creating something to please yourself. Youíre really creating the site because you want to please traffic.
Every page on your site should actually look like it belongs to the site. Try to keep the same backgrounds, the same look, throughout the site. Include your siteís title and logo (if any) at the top of every page, so your visitors can be assured theyíre still within the same site. Youíll want to choose a design thatís simple and uncluttered to avoid a jumbled look. Add graphics and images sparingly to avoid swamping the page, and choose an overall look thatís pleasant to the eye (with all your navigational tools clearly visible).
Make your design eye-catching and distinct, and make sure itís uniquely your own. Surf the Internet to look at sites offering similar content, and design your pages so that your site offers a look thatís different from any other.
