It’s the weak sprawl of a site: a template is presented to the world, offering minimal content and a lack of design. This is your first attempt at crafting a domain and you think perhaps you haven’t succeeded. The style is lacking. There are no flourishes to brand the site worthy.
There should be more, you believe, than basic information. There should be add-ons.
Add-ons are individual programs that can be included in any site, allowing new functions to commence. Choosing these simply to generate visual appeal, however, is a mistake. They will only stall the system, causing speeds to slow. Instead, you must select tools that will help you understand your readers and their needs:
- One: Counters. Numbers rarely offer satisfaction for you. Mathematics was never a comfort. But examining the trends and traffic of your site is essential. You must be aware of your guests and what content they prefer. Choose a counter add-on to track every single visit and show which pages are most popular. These items are easy to insert and easier to read.
- Two: Translator. You’re a master of no languages — with even your own proving to be challenging, with its grammar rules and insistence of punctuation. But others seeking to enjoy your site may fare even worse than you, settled in foreign countries and unable to grasp the content. A translation add-on is then recommended. These can be placed within the page, allowing readers to select content and paste it inside. Words will be translated to a chosen language and will offer comprehension.
- Three: Search. Your site may be tiny in its beginnings but you intend it to eventually expand; and finding specific information will become problematic for new guests. A search system is then needed. Use this add-on to allow all content to be scanned and ranked accordingly. This will ensure no data goes unnoticed.
Use these additions to form a more cohesive, and efficient site.
