I love how my website’s design is so intuitive.
I can get all my content on one page, or even a single blog post.
But when I am trying to share an article, I often need to click through to the first article to read it.
I am looking for a solution that would make my website look better in both the front and back of my reader’s eyes.
I also need a home page that I can customize to fit my site’s audience.
I’ve been using WordPress for many years now, and my home page is the only one that has remained consistent since I started using it.
Today, I’m sharing a few of my favorite home page tweaks that can make your home page look even better.
I’m going to talk about a few common mistakes I see on my home pages, and how to fix them.
I hope that you’ll find them helpful, and I encourage you to share them in the comments section below.
Let’s start with a few home page changes to help you improve your homepage design:1.
Include more images on your homepage article title.
This is one of the most important steps in your design.
I love using a title tag on my blog to help readers find what they are looking for.
If your site has a lot of images, this can be a pain.
When your title tag is placed on a page, it looks much more professional and professional looking.
You can even use a template or add-on like WordPress’ EasyToAdd.com to use it.2.
Add a link to your home-page’s home page template.
This will help your visitors find your article by giving them a link back to the home- page itself.
If you are using a template, this is especially important if you have a lot in common with your target audience.
Your home page should look like a simple home page.3.
Add more content to your homepage’s content block.
You should never remove any of the content on your home pages unless you are doing so to make it easier for visitors to find your content.
You don’t want to remove all of the relevant content on a site, especially if your content is relevant to the topic of your article.4.
Add some footer icons on your website’s homepage.
The footer of a website should be easy to find on the front page of the site.
You shouldn’t have to scroll all the way down the homepage to find it.
It should be a little hidden and easy to spot.
You also want your footer to look nice when you first start browsing your site.
This may seem obvious, but it is often overlooked.
You want your home and footer items to be visible on your visitor’s first visit.5.
Add an ‘all content’ option in your header and footers.
You may have seen this on other websites where content is displayed by default.
This allows visitors to scroll down to the bottom of the home pages and not have to re-enter your site’s content.
This should be one of your first design decisions.6.
Add navigation icons.
It’s important to use a great design to attract visitors to your site and to create a seamless experience for users.
Make sure your navigation has a great feel to it, and use your navigation icon to give your reader a little bit of context on where they are at on your site, where they should be heading, and what content they should see next.7.
Make it easier to access your homepage by adding navigation links to your footers and home pages.
Adding navigation links is an important step in creating a better home page for your readers.
If they have to go back to your website to get to your content, it may take a while to load, especially for people with limited bandwidth.
If a navigation link isn’t available, they may miss out on what you have to offer.8.
Add the link you’re using to your sidebar.
This might sound obvious, and it is.
However, if you haven’t already, you should add a link at the bottom right of your home homepage to your header or footers, which will allow you to quickly access content in the sidebar.
It will also make your sidebar a little more accessible to those who use their mobile devices more than their desktop or laptop computers.9.
Add your home button.
I personally don’t add my home button to my home homepage because it adds too much clutter to the site’s design.
If the link doesn’t have a button at the top, it won’t be visible to readers who are scrolling down.
However in a pinch, if your homepage doesn’t feature a button on the home homepage, you can add it.10.
Use a navigation bar on your back-end.
This step is a bit different from the front-end navigation in that it is not dependent on your main content block, and allows you to add more navigation options for your users.
