Though you may be skeptical of website differences, take some time to compare sites like Facebook versus sites hosted by Google or Yahoo. You will notice important parallels

between each site, as well how different designs are needed based on the needs of the individual website audience. If you are interested in educating yourself on web design, check out the information below.

Choose your color scheme wisely. Your content should be read easily without assistance or adjustment. Dark text colors on light backgrounds are usually easier to read compared

to the other way around. Let your friends see your color scheme to get their input.

Speed is vital when it comes to the Internet; therefore, you should ensure that your pages load really fast. A visitor who has to wait for pages to load is likely to seek information and help elsewhere. If your site has a reputation for loading slowly, it will be difficult to attract repeat visitors.

Always give your readers the ability to stop whatever it is they're doing. Whether filling out forms, signing up for email notices or even needing browsing options, users will find this useful. If visitors cannot cancel an action they are not interested in, such as providing their contact information, they will feel they do not have a choice and won't buy anything.

Retain user information so that people don't have to waste valuable time re-typing information into forms. For instance, if someone fills out a form using personal information, he or she shouldn't have to enter that same information in again when he or she goes to fill out an additional form. Keeping information "sticky" like this will make it simple to sign up for things on your site, and visitors will appreciate that you have saved them time.

Minimize the use of JavaScript. For some people visiting your site, Java will cause problems instead of providing improved functionality. Although JavaScript has some benefits, you need to be aware of the different types of browsers being used. All visitors won't have the most current version of the particular browser they're utilizing.

Also, many people do not enable JavaScript in web browsers. This means they'll have difficulty viewing your site because of this.

Create an opt-in newsletter to entice your visitors to return often. If you have your clients subscribe to updates, they will have a reason to come back again and again. Stick the sign-up form in a spot that's out of the way, such as in a sidebar, and keep good records of those who sign up. Your newsletter should only go out to those who specifically request to receive it, or you run the risk of turning off your customers.

Chances are you are not designing the next Twitter or Facebook site. The odds are not in your favor. Take heart, however, in the reality that most websites are not built by the powerful leaders in the Internet world, and that simpler programs can give you adequate and complete coverage for your own site. Apply the information found here and you will be on your way to designing like a pro!
