Factors for Website Optimization
There are many factors that come into play when talking about website optimization. The first thing that always comes to mind is SEO or Search Engine Optimization. While this is a very important factor for getting your site ranked high enough to be found, we will discuss this and other factors that are just as important.
One of the first factors in website optimization for a quality website is speed. How fast does the website open? No one wants to go to a web page and wait, and wait, for it to open. When a page won’t open a user will just hit the back button and try another. So, being number one on a search does no good if no one goes to your page.
Second, how easy is it to find the right information on your site? Optimizing your site ease of navigation is also just as important. Sites that are too cluttered or colors that all blend together make information hard to find. If users can’t find what they are looking for, they will leave and go where they can find it.
In addition, many websites today need website optimization for hand held devices. With so many smart phones and tablets in use today, these devices need to be able to access your website. More important, not just access the website, but be able to use and interact with the website.
Finally, we will talk a little about Search Engine Optimization. Most of the search engine optimization will fall into place by providing a useful, well performing, relevant website. There are of course some other factors involved. This is where you will need someone with the knowledge and experience to get you to the next level.
