Building a website that is successful isn't as hard as you think. By implementing the 5 tips below you will make a better impression on your visitors. This, in turn will help build the reputation of your site and increase your popularity, which is the main goal!

1. Attractive design

The design of your page is the 1st thing any visitor sees, so making a good 1st impression is key. Make sure your color scheme is easy on the eyes. Too many overpowering colors can be a big turn off to some. Font size is very important as well. If visitors have to strain to read your content they will most likely just close the page.

2. Easy Navigation

Easily accessible info is a MUST! Try not to bunch too much content into one page. It's better to have more navigation links than for the visitor to have to spend 20 minutes looking for the info they want. Rather than spend the time searching through the site, they will just close it and go onto a site that is easier to navigate.

3. Content

Keep your content on subject and have plenty of it. Updating often is essential as well as dating your updates so that they can see that you do take the time to add new content. This will give you a better chance at being bookmarked and them returning.

4. Simple IS Better

Yes there are still people out there with slower connections. So try not to use too much flash or graphics that will add to your sites load time. Keeping it simple with a fast load time will net you many more visitors and sales than a graphic intense page that looks great but takes forever to fully load.

5. Webmaster Accessibility

Be sure to have a contact page with your email address or phone number so you can be contacted easily. This makes you easily available if someone has a question and trust me people always have questions! :-)

These 5 simple things will help improve the experience of your site for all of your visitors and they will tell their friends. So you will have a booming site before you know it.
