Homepage essentials

June 5, 2008

A Homepage has to accomodate

  1. site identity and mission
  2. site hierarchy
  3. search
  4. Teases: Content and Feature promos
  5. Timely content (updated frequently)
  6. Deals
  7. Shortcuts
  8. Registration

More abstract objectives:

  1. Show me what I’m looking for
  2. and what I’m not looking for
  3. Show me where to start
  4. Establish credibility and trust
