BLaST Creative Web Design

So you’re wondering how BIG to make your web page or even how BIG a web page actually is?

Truthfully, a web page can change size depending on the computer that you use to look at it. The different size screens on computers affect how a web page is displayed.

Screen sizes are measured in pixels with the smallest ones being 640 pixels wide and 480 pixels high (640 x 480). These screens are become obsolete, the majority of computer screens today are 800 x 600 or 1024 x 768.

So where does that leave you? Well, the first decision that you need to make when it comes to web design is how to make your pages.

If your page is bigger than your visitor’s screen, then they will be forced to scroll to see all of your site. Most people don’t mind scrolling down, but you don’t want to make this a habit and it’s best to avoid it if possible.

Basically, it’s important to decide on the width of your web pages. If it’s too wide, your visitor will have to scroll horizontally.

Most web designers choose to design for 800 x 600 screens, so they design the page at 770 pixels wide or less, leaving space for the scrollbar.

BLaST Creative Web Design-Grab People With Headlines

When you get up in the morning and reach for the newspaper, what’s the first thing that you do? I don’t know about you, but me, I skim all of the headlines to see which stories I want to read. Well, the same is true online.

We are creatures of habit, we scan websites, reading headlines or what we in the design world call “headings” to help us decide if want to read or stay on this site or not. If you want to give your copy a chance to be read or if you want your visitors to stay, you need to make sure that you use punchy, descriptive headlines.

Your headlines should be a summary of your web content on each specific page, it should be a hook, making people want to read more. Try to use as few words as possible, but make them SNAPY!

And don’t ever pass up the opportunity to use keywords in your headlines. One way that search engines rank you is by looking at the text on your page and especially your headlines. If you want to be listed in “BMW Repair in Billings MT,” it will help if you include those words in your headline, “Metric Wrench offers BMW Repair in Billings MT.”
