Website Colour Schemes

Tuesday, August 26th, 2008

Selecting the right colour scheme for your website can be difficult. Ensuring the website is readable, cross-platform compatible, and aesthetically pleasing on screen, are factors that should be taken into consideration. However, you also want the website to have unique elements of design. In order to select the right colour scheme, you need to have a clear understanding of the colour wheel.
The colour wheel helps you mix and match colours in a harmonious fashion. It contains the three primary colours: red, blue and yellow, as well as the combination of how these three colours make up the secondary colours; green, purple and orange.

The reason for doing this usually comes back to the topic of Search Engine Optimisation, or SEO. URL’s that are shorter in length, are words rather then numbers, and are words that relate to the content of the page are not only going to benefit you massively through SEO, but the URL’s will be much easier for your users to remember and type in. There are many other uses and reasons to rewrite URL’s that people use however I won’t go into detail here.
