-Fast Loading web site - This is the number 1 tip that every web designer should follow. You might design a web site that looks fantastic but few people are going to see it if it takes a long time to load. Your designs should be optimized for the web and should not take more than 15 seconds to load.
-Navigation must be clearly planned - Once a visitor has come to your site you need to make them go through your site. To do this you need to have clear navigation. Make sure all your important links are at prominent places. Make use of menus on the right and the left. Try to link to as many pages of your site. Let your information be accessible from all parts of the site.
-Setting Resolution - Today, there are computers with all kinds of resolution. They range from 640 x 480 to 1024 x 768 and go even higher. Your job is to design your site for all these resolutions. The best way to do this is to design your site in terms of percentage and not pixels.
-Compatible with all the browsers - Make sure your site is browser compatible. Your web site should look good in Netscape as well as in Internet Explorer. Don’t stop designing your site as soon as you find that it looks great on IE. Usually Netscape gives some problems, especially when you try doing complicated HTML designs.
-Fonts play a huge role- If the font you use is not available in a visitor’s computer the web site will use the default font of your computer which is much worse. So try to keep to common and professional web fonts.
