Tips to achieve a higher score:

Web Design: Make certain that your web graphics have meaning and relevance to your website, your colors don't clash and backgrounds are not overpowering. View your pages as though you are visiting your website for the first time; is there that compelling factor that makes you want to carry on browsing the pages.

Content: First and foremost do you know what you are talking about? Be certain your research is current and relevant as well as being interesting and informative and has good clean graphics. The overall content has to be eye catching and original to make your visitor want to return. There are many spell checks available, make use of them.

We provide fantastic premium quality dreamweaver templates at dreamweaver templates Dreamweaver templates are designed to manage websites that share a common structure and appearance throughout their pages.

Layout: Make certain that the layout of your pages is easy on the eye and makes sense to the viewer. Try to use page justification, it just looks better. Make certain you use the same fonts throughout the website for consistency sake. If a page is long (anything over two browser pages lengths) be certain to have a method to get to the "Top" of the page without having to scroll up.

Navigation: Navigation must be available from all pages and must link to your main pages. There is little that is more annoying than having to resort to utilizing the browsers back button, or finding links on all pages that take you back to a table of contents or site map.

These are important "tips" but be certain to read our criteria before submitting your website for our awards.
