A website’s structure is the framework where the content and information is displayed.
To help me design and structure your website, I will need to know a number of things.
- Your domain name. We can organise this for you if needed.
- Your website name. Again, we can help here if you haven’t one.
- A website description. What is your site about in 150 characters or less. This description will show up under your page title on a web search so it is good practice to spend some time to get it right.
- Your web hosting company. We can help here also.
- Is the website a static one where one or more pages of pre-defined static information is presented to the userand changes are few if at all.
- Dynamic websites are ones that are updated, changed and added to usually on a regular basis.
- What pages do you want and the order do you want them.
- What sort of look or theme do you want for your website.
- Which keywords you consider important.
- What product or service are you promoting or selling.
- All information or products should be no more than 3 clicks away.
- Do you want or intend to have and use a blog page. A blog page is a bit like a news page where you can keep users updated with events and basically anything you want to blog about. I do highly recommend a blog page to help promote your site. You can use your blog to promote your business and products. This will help greatly with your exposure and ranking. If you blog well, you will improve your ranking.
- Any and all images that you wish to use on your pages initially. I am talking about header images and images that will be a more permanent part of your site.
- Your complete contact details. Phone, email, ABN if you have one, etc..
- CONTENT. This is the most important part of a website. If you wish to rank well, then content is king.
- The content should be readable by both people and search engines to get quality results.
Remember that your website is available 24 hours a day and for 7 days a week. It is available for anyone anywhere who has access to the internet. At home, at work or on your mobile your website will be available to potential clients.
