I want to start off by talking about the headings of the website I have chosen to use for the final project. The headings read: Home, Products and Services, Frequently Asked Questions, News, Contact Us, and Client Inquiry. These headings, or tabs rather, are seen straight across the top of the website. They are white text with a red background, which as we learned is common for headings. When you click on the heading, new information appears for each. So, it would seem as if this website is off to a good start. However, once you look at the information and graphics provided on each tab, you might see where the website needs some work.
Under most of the headings, you will find content that is presented in paragraph style. As Redish discusses, there is a type of writing style that one would need to use for an effective website; however, this paragraph style just isn't it. There are no links to continue forward looking through the website. Also, the graphics are simple, slightly irrelevant, and out of date.
Another thing that needs to be updated, as I described actually in an earlier blog, is the news portion of the site. The latest news portion seen on the site is from 2007, even though there has been a lot of current news out there for this company. Also, the copyright on the bottom of the page reads 2007 as well, even though this website is the current usable website for the company.
There are a lot of things I would change about this website, and I am eager to dig deeper into the project.
