A good SEO friendly design is sometimes even obvious; you should not need explanations for its use. It must have a simple and easily navigable structure. If you have many categories, everything must be very orderly and easily accessible. Avoid dead ends. A good website should be seen on all existing browsers for regular use.
A user is not willing to waste their time with complex structures, need plugins to see things or endless technical explanations. If your products or services require this type of explanation, give the user the possibility to choose to see them with a drop-down, nothing more.
If you are offering a product for a limited time, special offer, etc. on your site or website use your site to focus the user’s attention on it, do not use a banner or a pop-up window to do so.
If you have several sections on your website, make sure that the menu shows them effectively and easily. The main menu must be on all the pages of your site, never leave pages without a menu where you have to go “Back” in the browser.
The content is everything, good texts without mistakes of grammar or spelling and good quality images speak of the interest and the respect you have for the user.
Users are looking for information; they want to see if their service or product helps them to buy it. If your website does not give them what they are looking for, they leave immediately.
Making use of the space of a website does not mean putting everything you can and everything tight!!! The user needs to “breathe,” and for this, it is necessary that there are blank spaces.
When you use an SEO friendly website to communicate as a visual tool, try to review the contents and its design to describe what you want efficiently and transparently. Try to be distinctive when doing it and put emphasis on what you want to emphasize.
These are “small” details such as the location of menus, search boxes, links, etc. where the user finds them easily because they are common to every website. Also the use of common phrases such as “Search,” “Contact,” “User access or log-in,” etc.
Testing the performance is the key to SEO friendly design and development, this can be easily achieved by involving the real users who were not the part of testing or development team. You won’t have to go for a hard search as we all have our critics within our family and friend circle who can help us to achieve the best.
