I wrote a similar article in 2018, but the web is changing so quickly that those guidelines are already hopelessly out of date sites.
Let’s take a step-by-step look at the most important principles of web design in 2021.
Be sure to let the user know that the site has a mobile app
This is an essential principle, and there are reasons for this. Focus groups, on which we have already spent a lot of money, have shown that the first thing a user wants to get to your site is to install a mobile application.
As an optional option, you can add a button or a link to close this window best entertainment websites. But it is fundamentally important that the text on it is faint and worded as if the user should be ashamed to refuse or he will still want to install the application in the future sites.
Tip: If you don’t have a mobile app, it doesn’t matter! Just shove the entire site into a webview with security disabled and write that this is a mobile application!
Develop a Do Not Track Strategy
Most modern browsers (no way!) Support the HTTP DNT header, which stands for Do Not Track.
Don’t panic! It turned out that most users will turn off the header as soon as you ask them, and to make everything go like clockwork, attach detailed instructions on how to do it:
Tip: Do not ask if the user wants to disable DNT in the manual for disabling DNT, otherwise they will suddenly agree.
Develop a strategy for Cook
You do not need to ask about cookies if the site uses them for adequate reasons, but it is much better to request permission for all cookies in bulk, then we can track whatever we want without fear of consequences!
Tip: Do not load pages without cookies, even if they are not needed for work, because then you will be able to track much less personal information that can then be sold.
Ad blockers are everywhere, and this affects the profits, so without blocking blockers anywhere!
Tip: Don’t tell anyone about Brave, the open source Chromium browser with built-in ad blocking.
Also, don’t tell anyone about Firefox, Opera or Vivaldi – translator’s advice.
Block calls from other countries
With all these laws, GDPR, link taxes and Huawei ban (in the US – approx. Transl.), Although it is not yet completely clear what it means, it is better to just take and block them all from sin sites.
Make layout as big as possible
The days of 800 pixel layouts long gone. There are more and more widescreen displays now, so try to use as much space as possible.
Modern browsers support notifications, which means they must be turned on, but if it doesn’t work, you can always try to subscribe the user to the mailing list or sms by default.
Remind the user
Sometimes users forget that they can register, so remind me regularly and display a huge link or button:
Give the user the option to opt out
It is very important to be user-friendly and unobtrusive sites, which means that we must give the opportunity to refuse constant reminders, mailings and windows.
The main thing in this case is to place options where they are most noticeable, for example, in one of the subsections of the “account settings”:
No, you, of course, may think: “But why, because I have only text and a couple of pictures?” Have you thought about the future? Soon, rest assured, you will have a bunch of modals. And when that happens, you’ll regret a hundred times over that you didn’t use the fancy JS framework running in the serverless cloud.
