Website architecture is the layout and design framework of a website and each of its webpage. The relationship between each webpage and the whole website, as well as the relationship between each page and every other page, is the primary consideration when designing a website from an architectural standpoint.
While it is certainly important to focus on creating a website with a good visual appeal, we at Plus Automation, strongly believe that it is even more important to focus on how easy the website is to use, how simple it will be to change and expand in the future, and how search engine friendly it can be. These attributes under the preview of website architecture or information architecture, contribute significantly in the making of a successful website.
Under the creation of a web architect, websites achieve just the right balance between visual appeal, ease of use, functionality, and search engine friendliness.
Drafting site architecture involves using the information gathered for your website in a structured form. The goal of this phase is categorizing, organizing, and prioritizing how users will navigate through your website.
Good web application architecture involves making your website easy to navigate through site mapping, task flows, and wireframes (wireframe is a grayscale digital skeleton that helps a web architect visualize the layout of your website pages. Placeholder headlines, subheadings, text, images, navigation, advertising, and other content show where information will appear when users view your website). This results in a user centered website that translates in to value for your investment and produces results.
Web architecture is efficient and productive aspect of website creation as changes are made much faster at this stage. Implementing solutions is quicker because it is free of complex programming and detailed graphics.
