Today I’m designing for a VOIP website template that has the flexibility to be rebranded as required. I think a trawl through iStock and Shutterstock will get the ball rolling if I can avoid too many 3D images of globes and mobiles.
What does 404 error page mean? It’s just a page that shows up when user tries to browse the page that doesn’t seems to exist anymore – link may be broken, moved, or even it has never existed and never will. Popular and good looking pages will always have good 404 error pages both from creative and functional point of view. Why? – if user hits such error page, it should do the best to help reader find what he is searching for, otherwise he will go away and may never come back.
You’ve got a great design for your header and the content is well placed and flows nicely – but why stop there? When the viewer scrolls to the bottom of the page, are they greeted with only a credit link and a copyright notice? Your website’s footer is a great place to direct the attention of visitors to other areas of your site.
Its amazing what a new site design can do. We have seen a significant drop in bounce rate when sites are redesigned. This means customers are actually taking the time to browse the site instead of just clicking the back button on their browser.
On the1st of February 2010 we launched the new OHM Healthcare e-commerce website. The companies previous ecommerce site was built in OS Commerce and Zone1 Creative migrated the data to X-Cart and put a new branding and design on top.
The number of page views and average page views per visitor were also up when you compared stats from the pevious month.
Pages views were up by 36%.
The average page view went from 2.78 to 4.72 (+%69)
The time on site went from 2:12 to 3:15 (+48%)
The overall bounce rate dropped from63% to 33% (-47%)
So if you are already generating traffic but just can’t keep your customers on site, then you should be looking to invest into design / usability rather than more adwords.
