Having covered good and bad websites now in lectures and tutorials it seems to me that the essential keys to a good website is simple….does it annoy you to be on the site, well then if so thats not good.
To say that I myself am obsessed with the internet would be a true statement, the world wide web dominates a big part of my life as both a student with a major in media but also as a 21 years old girl with a smart phone and laptop.
I spend a lot of time browsing the internet, on different topics for example at the moment I am looking at MA programmes around Ireland (Frighteningly enough) and I am stumbling into different websites some are great some not so great. I think the key is that the information has to be filtered, only needed info included on each page. A website is not like an academic essay where one has room to waffle, strictly no waffles around here.
So moral of the story, keep is short and keep it sweet, pick friendly colours not like yellow font colour and your website should be successful.
