What makes a good website?

  • What makes a good website?

A website should be easy to use

  • The ease of use of a website is considered to be the most important factor in what makes a good website.
  • Ease of use depends on several things such as a good background colour with high-contrast as well as an easy to read font (this is called readability).
  • As well as that you may also find that webpages on a website are very similar throughout the website. This is called consistency.
  • Websites are also designed to work on several different devices.

Find four websites; two good websites and two bad websites.


Fill in the task on Google Classroom with these websites.


Getting started

  • First, log on to Google and open Google Sites.

Your pages

  • You are now going to create three pages:
    • The homepage - have a short but friendly introduction describing what your website is about
    • An About Me page - add a little bit about you here
    • A blog - this is where you will write about what you have been doing in school.
