Seth Godin is a best-selling author and entrepreneur and writes very insightful books on the topics of marketing, entrepreneurs, and personal success. In this article Seth outlines ten very simple components of a great web site. The list is well thought out and what amazes me is how many of these items I routinely see ignored on the Internet and how many of these points have been ignored by clients and/or companies I’ve worked with in developing web sites over the years.
The good news is that while there are over 50 million new web sites every year, the majority of them are the exact opposite of this list and become complete failures. You can still stand out in the crowd by creating a truly great web site.
