How do you make your website credible?

How do you make your website credible?

* Your website should have a clean design, with basic SEO techniques implemented
* You need to get your website out there - this can be achieved by implementing other online strategies - article marketing, social media marketing etc.
* Website needs to be appealing eg: having black text against a white background (eye-pleasing colours)
* Little or no obvious advertising
* No unnecessary pop ups
* A clear message on the homepage as to what your value proposition is
 * Clear navigation

Once your visitor is on your website, he/she will have about 10 seconds to be impressed or they will leave, generally by clicking on the 'back button' on the browser or closing the page / tab entirely.

Once the visitor is convinced that they have landed on a credible website and they have found the product or service that they are looking for, what next? Well, you now have to come across as being trustworthy.
