Before, you take this video seriously, it is actually a funny mashup video and does not have any value in teaching you to rank #1 on Google. But if you are aware of the basics of SEO, this video is going to make you laugh out loud and if you like it, feel free to share this post with your friends!
Jokes aside, we wanted to take this opportunity to educate you about the most fundamental thing about SEO.
It all boils down to how good is your website.
We know that when we are looking for a local business to deal with – from a beekeeper to a honey distributor – the first place we look for is online. If we are unable to navigate the websites intuitively, we might be feeling out of place. We’re not talking flashing lights and Broadway musicals here, but every successful website has to look easy on the eyes.
Below are 3 important web design practices that will help you to make the user crave to come to your website again and again:
First Impression Counts
We believe user experience (UX) is very important. How you feel, and therefore if whether you’re going to engage and buy, is directly influenced by the website design. If the website hasn’t been updated since 2003, or doesn’t provide an email address or phone number – we discount it immediately. We normally assume (rightly or wrongly) that the business is unprofessional and low quality.
Unique and User-Friendly Content
Remember that the user has short attention span so be as concise and brief as possible. Eliminate all the unnecessary information and stick to the point. Make use of headings and bullets whenever possible to highlight most important features.
Use of Visuals
Make sure that you use appealing and engaging visuals. If possible, go for animated images as they are even more appealing and tempting to the visitors. An eye-catching layout design not only increases the time that a user spends on your website but will also make it appealing for the user. Try to be as creative and original as possible. If navigation is error free, it will give users a great experience as they take a tour on your website. A minimalist approach is usually the finest web design practice.
