    The secret to designing a website is to achieve a balance between visuals, content, usability and navigability. Not only do you need to attract the attention of the viewer, you also need to hold it. You must decide what the target audience is and what their expectations are. Again, you need to provide the content the user expects from your site. Moreover, the viewer must find it easy to navigate and use your site. Else your bounce rate will increase. Keep these in mind before you think of elaborating you plans into cyberspace.

    Good luck!

    What webguru11 says is bang on the money, but I would also go one step further and ask yourself what your main aim of the website actually is and you can worry about why the audience reached you at a later date.

    If it is to sell something for instance, then you need to lead the viewer into buying your product. It is easy to design a good looking site and get lots of traffic who click through; it is harder to get them to stop and buy.

    I would agree with you guys, and definitely as hendry mentioned the requirements and the purpose of the site (why is it being built and for what type of a business) is also very important and must be kept in mind while designing it. Other than that, i would say the layout and content is very important and the points mentioned by webguru11. Just make sure the site reflects the personality of their owners.

    1. Creativity is an important element of web designing as web site’s first impression matters a lot.

    2. Special emphasis need to be laid upon your home page. Make it as creative as you can with the help of animations, graphics etc.

    3. Easy language also has good words and you should make ample use of those to impress the visitor.

    4. Special emphasis has to be given while giving a name/title to your domain.

    5. Web designing should always be supported by a good content

    6. The color combination used in the website plays a very important role as it alone speaks a lot.

    7. Photographs play a very important role when it comes to web designing. It helps in holding the visitor to your site in the very first instance.
