What is a Web Page?

Simply, a web page is a single web document and is a part of a website (a collection of different web pages).

It is identified by a unique uniform resource locator (URL). For example: this web page’s URL is diy-web-page. whytleigh.com is the domain name of this website (https://whytleigh.com/diy-web-page)

A web page is used to provide information to viewers, including images and/or videos to illustrate important topics. A web page may be used as a method to sell products or services to viewers.

A web page can be created very quickly compared to a website, it should be compatible with any device (mobile, desktop, laptop, etc.), and can have any type of information.

Links should be visible and be easy to navigate.

Paragraphs should be informative, easy to read, and concise.

Headings should be easy to skim and find what is most interesting.

Images/Videos. People are visually oriented and utilizing graphics is a way to make your web page appealing.

Forms utilizing radio buttons, edit fields, check boxes, combo boxes, list boxes, and buttons.

Social share links to allow visitors to share your page with co-workers, friends, and family.

Elements of a Web Page

Have you heard…Content is King. It plays a pivotal role in Search Engine Optimization (SEO) and is the main reason people visit your website.

Focus into creating quality content for your web page. Include videos, relevant news/information and imagery to keep users on your web page longer.

Content means any creative element.

Basic kinds of web content

  • Text
  • Multimedia (Animations, Images, Audio, and Video)

Usability

Great usability is almost never noticed by the user, but bad usability stands out. Your web pages should be easily to navigate, intuitive, and mobile-friendly.

Usability means user-centered design.

5 key principles of good website usability

  1. Availability and Accessibility
  2. Clarity
  3. Learnability
  4. Credibility
  5. Relevancy

Aesthetics

Your website and pages reflect who you are as a business and should visually connect with your viewers.

Visibility

Your site and pages will be unsuccessful unless they can be found. Being present and visible through marketing campaigns (SEO, social media and email marketing) is vital to the success of your website

Interaction

Your website and web pages should engage your viewers by answering questions, holding their attention, directing them through the site and having a clear call to action.

Your web pages aren’t just there for show, it is there to assist in solving viewers problems and to generate leads, increase sales and grow your business.

Final Thoughts

The internet is actually a huge library. Websites can be considered to be books and web pages are the individual pages of those books. The biggest difference is in how we reach those pages.

DIY web pages such as the one from Shuffle, can be the answer to having a web presence without having a website. Combining several of these together could result in having a very mobile friendly mini-website complete with campaigns, lead generation, tracking, and CRM tools that will increase your brand’s visibility and reach.

Combining all the elements you need for a web page. Shuffle provides a simple solution to not having a website. Best of all, it is a user-friendly platform that practically guides you thru the building of the page and has a very nice selection of templates that will help set you and your brand up for success.
