When website designing is undertaken, we usually forget how critical the header of a website is. A header is typically a visual signaling flag that leaves a first impression on minds of visitors about your website. It is only the header that falls to a visitors sight at the very first look and it is the only thing that bounces the visitors to other pages of your site. Just because a website header is visible on every page of the website, therefore, it must be designed after much thought. Comprehending the purpose of your site and its relevance, a website header must compliment the content that is available on your site without digressing from the theme.
A website header should not be eye-straining and must be professional and appealing. It should serve your purpose well and drive the visitors to know about your company, your products or services. This is what LIT specializes in. It comprehends the client's nature of business and accordingly design the headers that magnetize potentials to scramble through the entire website.
To add more relevance and catchy element to the website header, you can place some gripping images with quotes. This will not just assist you to give it a professional look rather making it simpler for the visitors to understand what's stored for them on other pages of the website. There are few things that LIT professionals keep in mind before designing the header of a website.
Avoid Messy Website Headers
Make your website header navigation to be as clean and uncluttered as possible. Do not stuff the website headers with either images or content as it is just a synopsis of the website. So make sure to maintain an ideal balance so that visitors get an idea what is your website all about and spend quality time on other web pages too.
Style of website header also depends on type of website you are designing. Some prefer to add flash images while other choose static graphics. A website header should be designed depending upon what images and style you think will help you to exhibit your area of niche.
Implementation of SEO
The team at LIT considers the significance and therefore incorporate SEO features in the website header too. The reason behind the use of SEO is that besides visitors, it is also the search engine spiders that scramble through the web pages to know how catchy, appealing and informative your headers or website is and this way they decide the ranking of your website.
However, the modus-operandi that can applied to increase the ranking of the website is including the major website keywords in the header. If the searcher looks for the same keyword on your header, the ranking of your page will increase significantly. Another great idea would be to add keywords in the file name that will give an additional boost to website.
From Navigational Perspective
Most of the people choose to pick side bars for the navigational purposes. But to add that appealing tinge to the website, try to use your website header for the navigation. Nonetheless, make sure that you doesn't stuff it with navigational features and maintain a fine balance by dividing the categories (some on header and rest on the side bars).
To conclude, it is your website header that can create much difference in improving your website ranking. And this is what LIT's pool of website designers understand this to the core and design website headers under website designing services in India that are neither too simple not too complicated to yield results.
