Internet and the World Wide Web already counts more than 20 years of existence and yes, as you’ve probably guessed it, a lot of things have changed ever since. Websites are now more interacted and user-oriented than the past web 1.0 static area and websites designers should never stop performing website redesign procedures to adapt to the new trends and demands of the Internet algorithms.
According to stats, its takes just a few seconds for a user to decide whether to stay on your website or not and the vast majority of users report website’s appearance/design is one of the most important reasons to form an impression of the company and decide whether to take action or not. And yes, the old good saying “pictures speak louder than words” is so true in this case. Even the world’s best content, would have absolutely no value if your website sucks in terms of design and appearance and getting a website redesign is an absolute must.
Here are some signs that you certainly need a website redesign:
You use flash. Using flash may look impressive, but it’s not particularly mobile screen friendly. Since the majority of users use a mobile device to access the Internet, it would be wise if you get rid of flash to make the process of access easier.
Your website is not mobile-friendly. Google has recently updated their algorithm to favor websites that are more mobile friendly than others. That means, if your website’s design is not optimized for mobile screen use, your website will rank lower in search engines.
You use old-school tables. Old school tables and columns are pretty outdated and static. If your website is based on these, you should change them and replace them with some more lively and interactive visual elements.
You use images in the place of titles. Using images for titles is an outdated and not useful enough technique when it comes to past 2010’s era websites. The best strategy when you are performing a website redesign is to use h1, h2, h3 tags properly and organize your titles in a way that makes your message clear.
There are too many buttons and clicks to access a certain part of your web-page. If the average user has to click 10+ buttons to access a certain piece of content, they will get annoyed or bored. Your website redesign should make everything look fresh and modern but not full on unnecessary buttons and visual elements that distract from the original layout of your website.
