Top 5 Myths and Facts of Custom Web Development

By Mark Wilston Subscribe to RSS | June 28th 2012 | Views:

Every website needs an overhaul after a regular interval of time. It is necessary to keep a site fresh and updated in order to attain good results in terms of search engine results and performance. Custom web development helps in providing a refurnished website with all the necessary and latest features. This enhances a site's chances of gaining more traffic and making more conversions. However, there are lots of myths related to custom web development floating around. Here are top five myths and facts.

Myth1: Use of maximum colors makes a site visually appealing

Fact: A visually appealing website has got nothing to do with colors. Yes, the fact that proper color combination matters a lot can not be denied. But the use of maximum colors certainly does not make a site beautiful. It will only end up making your site look like a color box and can ruin the image of your business.

Myth2: Including many graphics is helpful for a site

Fact: Including graphics does make a site look attractive to some extent but overloading a site with too many graphics only creates adverse effects for a site. It not only slows down the speed of web pages but also makes a site look cluttered and unorganized.

Myth3: Flash is necessary for a website to look attractive

Fact: Flash is basically used to create advertisement banners and animations in any web design. The use of flash is all right but it should not exceed beyond a limit. The use of flash serves it purpose the best only if it is used efficiently. There is no doubt that Flash banners help to enhance the believability to a particular web design, but if used too much, it can lead to certain disadvantages as well. Therefore, plan the proper use of Flash and keep in mind that there are many other things that can help in making a site look visually appealing.

Myth4: Content should be the topmost priority

Fact: There is no doubt that content is a very important aspect of a web design. However, it is certainly not the only important thing. It is important to create a quality and relevant content for a website but at the same time, there are other important aspects like animations, sound files etc which also deserve the equal attention. In fact, a website’s overall look and layout can be enhanced to a great extent by supporting the content with appropriate animations and sound files.

Myth5: Web design consists of only typography, layout and HTML document

Fact: A general presumption is that a web design consists only of typography, layout and HTML document. However, the fact is that it is a very traditional approach and in today's time it is of paramount importance to implement the right prototyping, proper planning and implementation phase for a successful website design.

There are many other myths. Before you start with custom development, it is important to have a good idea about everything. Always hire a good web design company to get the best results.
