Types Of Web Pages

Description: Surely a web page is just a web page? Not necessarily, as you are about to find out.

Getting a basic understanding of the different types of web pages that exist will help you to design a better website. Certain types of page are present on almost every website, while others only play a very specific role which is relevant to a certain kind of website, such as one that sells a wide range of goods.

Perhaps the most important page of any website is the home page. This acts as the front door to your website and paves the way for what lies within it. This needs to be clear and concise and enticing if people are to venture further into your site.

Next you have content pages. These tend to contain articles and other pieces of content that have information about the subject of your website.

Information pages cover a number of subjects, but a good example is a page which gives the user information about your company and what its role is within the marketplace. It may also contain contact information, email addresses and so on.

If your site has goods for sale then it will certainly have a range of product pages. These show the visitors what is available and gives them all the information they need on each product.

There are countless other types of page which often fit into one of these broad categories, as is the case with interactive web pages. As the name suggests these are pages that involve the visitor in some way - they might be forum pages, pages which ask for an opinion or request the visitor to sign up to receive a free newsletter, or any one of a number of other options.

The key here is to make sure you know the difference between the different types of web pages, so that you can choose the ones which will fit into the structure of your website in the best way possible.
