Do you think of SEO and web design as separate elements of your website?

You shouldn’t.

In fact, to do both correctly, they have to work together. Google cares about how your site looks and feels more than you might think it does. Even if it can’t “see” it the same way a human user can, there are benefits to building a responsive website that will make your SEO more solid than ever.

Building rapport with Google takes more than keyword frequency. Here’s how you can make your website show up higher on search rankings and stand out from the pack:

1. Mobile matters.

At the end of 2017, Google announced on its webmaster blog that it was going to start indexing mobile sites first. Previously, the desktop version of a website was the one that would get indexed. But from then on, Google slowly began rolling out a mobile-first program.

Wooing online shoppers can be tricky. While your website may look professional and include social proof and trust badges, you could be overlooking less obvious design elements that can affect conversions. But don’t worry; you don’t have to be a web designer yourself to understand and implement these four simple fixes. 

1. Pick the right colors.

It's commonly believed that certain colors affect the way we feel about a business, including whether we decide to make a purchase.

The color blue, for example, is thought to evoke feelings of trust, strength and dependability, which is why companies like Dell, Ford and American Express use it. On the other hand, companies like Lego, Nintendo and YouTube chose red because it tends to evoke excitement and youthfulness.

So consider what your website's colors

Good design is something obvious. Great design is something almost transparent. Great web design can help build trust with users and motivate them to take your preferred course of actions and create profitable conversions. It’s not something about the influence on somebody’s will, it’s just about design that doesn’t make people overloaded, but rather engages them and helps them decide. From layouts and typeface to colors and CTAs – each detail matters and plays an important role in user engagement.

At the same time, it has become more difficult to impact the user decision-making process, since people are already used to filter external factors influencing their decisions on the web. However, there are things that aren’t subject to change.
