Articles about Web Sites

Kohimarama Yacht Club, in reflection.

Are Web Sites a convenient fiction?

Web site owners often think of their site as a single entity. However many visitor are only interested in one page, they don't look at anything else. If you follow that thought, it could change the way you think about web design. (For example: you might need to consider a target user for each page!)

Improving the quality of web pages

I'm regularly surprised by the low quality of web pages. The problem may arise from the forgiving nature of Browsers, they allow developers to be unaware of the mess they're making. I ran a quick check on more than 50 pages from my favourites list. 90% were such poor quality that they shouldn't have been released. I'm disappointed. Many of the problems can be fixed in a few minutes. If you care there might be an answer here. I've provided further documentation, source code and the like so that you can roll your own tests.

Web site owners and developers face a sometimes bewildering array of things that a visitor might consider when judging their site. (Content, appearance, speed and looking at the code ...)

This article introduces a technique that can be used to produce a single rating from a range of factors.
