Generally, people look at websites for two primary reasons:
- To find information they need. This could be anything from a student looking for pictures of frogs for a school project, to finding the latest stock quotes, to getting the address of the nearest Thai restaurant.
- To complete a task. Visitors may want to buy the latest best-seller, download a software program, or participate in an online discussion about a favorite hobby.
The main thing to remember in creating a website is that you’re not creating the website for you; you already know about the information or service you have to offer. You’re creating the site for your visitors, so it should contain the content they want, and be organized in a way that makes sense, even to an outsider.We’ll tell you how to create and improve your website in further articles, but the main thing to remember is this: A website is a means of communication, and it is only successful when its message is received by the intended user.
