3 Steps to a Great WordPress Experience

1. Navigation

Perhaps the most important part of a website is navigation. This means clear sectioning, highlighted when it needs to be, and with link titles that make sense to read. The last thing you want is a valued visitor getting lost within your pages.

Recommendations
Sitemaps
A good starting point is to create a basic diagram that shows your key pages and how they link to each other. This will be really useful when coming to the design stage and ensures everyone understand the key components of your site.
Words
Make sure you write informative headlines that keep people interested. Ensure sections have labels that are easy to understand. Don’t double up on content, by having clearly marked pages for each category.

2. Optimisation

This is an ongoing part of running a WordPress website. You need to ensure plugins and WordPress itself is kept up to date, and that nothing ‘breaks’. Your website will need to be hosted on its own dedicated server space.

Recommendations
Speed
This is ensuring caching is working effectively using tools such as Cloudflare, which can drastically improve the performance of your website. Also, ensuring CSS, HTML and Javascript are loading as efficiently as possible – and that images are optimised.
SEO
Making sure that your headlines make sense and clearly explain the content of the page. Have plenty of key search words in your content that answers what people may be searching for. Link to other parts of your website, to keep visitors staying for longer.

3. Design

As long as you follow best practises for navigation and optimisation, your design should fall into place. The design should compliment the navigation and take on board brand colours and logos – so users know at all times which site they are on.

Recommendations
Responsive
Make use of the space you have on a desktop website. This allows you the room to add a few more design tricks and add to the overall enjoyment of the site, compared to a small mobile screen. In responsive mode the skill here is ensuring users don’t get lost in the website. One option is a permanent menu that appears at the bottom of the mobile screen.
Easy to use
This is the primary objective of the design. To ensure it is a pleasant surfing experience. It needs to look professional and authoritative and to match the audience expectations. The pictures and words should all add value to the overall ease of use.
