Single page websites / Landing pages
If your site content is going to be minimal then single page website is the right choice for you.
Single page websites / or sometimes they might be landing pages, are getting more and more popular. A single page website is particularly good for a business that just need something up and running quickly to have some sort of website presence, but they are also great for people visiting the website from a mobile or a smaller device. Instead of having to click on the menu to visit another page, they will just be able to scroll and stay on the same page. Smart phones encourage scrolling and we are now accustomed to scrolling for information, it is often easier to scroll for information than to click.
With a single page website you can focus on quality and not quantity.
Single page websites are therefore:
- Good for smaller websites and websites with very little text content
- Better SEO when the website does not have more than 500 words per page.
- Better user experience as not much pages to navigate to instead all information will be on one page.
- Mobile friendly as the visitor does not have to keep changing page
- Website can easily grow in the future
- Google likes a website that is a few years old, and not a new one. Register a domain name, build a single page website as soon as you can, and in time build a bigger website to rank higher in Google. Plan for the future!
