It is important to note that the key to a good website is simplicity. Here are some tips that web designers consider when creating a site:

 1) Simplicity in design – Websites have to feature simple templates so that they will not be unpleasing too look at. When an Internet user stumbles upon a site that has a disorganized design, there is a big possibility that he will leave the site. Aside from that, web pages should also be arranged in a way that viewers will not have a hard time navigating through the site.

2) Simplicity in visual effects – Visual effects are great, but too much of them can definitely ruin the appearance of the site. Visual effects take the focus away from the main content. Instead of looking at important parts of the website, viewers will most likely enjoy the visualizations instead. Aside from that, too much visual effects can also make the site run very slow.

3) Simplicity in words – Words have to be simple and short. Oftentimes, website owners use too many words in an attempt to sound more appealing to the viewers. Paragraphs used in the site which are too long will definitely look boring to the users. No one wants to read something that is very long.
