websites    Humans rely heavily on visual and aesthetic elements of an object, and websites are no different. Software developers want to have the best look for their sites while the visitors also pick only the best looking online destinations and visit them on a regular basis. So, it’s all about the looks! At least, it seems that way…Of course, we all know that good looking things are not necessarily the best things, and we often have to dig deeper to discover the true value of a certain thing or a person. This can also be applied to websites since they are much more than “meets the eye” and there is a lot going on underneath that smooth and shiny interface. However, not all people are capable of seeing those inner mechanisms, nor they want to see them, and they satisfy themselves by dividing websites into two categories: good looking and not good looking.


Having that in mind, we can start to wonder how we can make our websites good looking and is there some kind of formula that can make our blog or portfolio attractive and special? Well, the answer is no, since no magical formula will turn your site into a Mecca for all internet users, but there are certain tips which can make your website attractive to your target audience and which can significantly increase the number of visits to your site. Naturally, those instructions are worthless if you do not have that “artistic vibe” incorporated into your mind and soul, and if you cannot successfully recognize which elements complement each other and which do not go along.
