Web design is a field which is constantly evolving, with changes coming every month, let alone year! It is one of the fields which is always going to be adapting to what people want and need from their websites.
One of the best ways to get your website looking great is to switch up the layout a little. Try grid layouts for a neat and boxy look. If you have a site which sells products, try making sure that your products are shown high up on the site, “above the fold” (this means that the user does not need to scroll down to see the content).
When you are making your site look great, ensure that you use the correct heading and title tags in the back end. The heading tags are what search engines see in order to know what your website is about, so they are very important!
