Websites generally consist of several pages of text, graphic images, photographs, and may contain sound and video. A feature of a well designed website are the “links’ embedded within the pages that can be clicked on to take the user to other pages. Your website should be well organized so the user decides how they will view the pages. They may select only the pages that are an interest to them. A well-designed and written website will be written to take advantage of search engine optimization. In addition, analytical tools exist so that you can analyze the effectiveness of the various pages within your website.
