Needless to say, the homepage is a place of the first acquaintance with your website. Indeed, it can become either a beginning of a lasting love story, or signify the end of a short-lived relationship. I bet you strive to empower the first option. However, when designing a homepage for a news website, you should stick to an abundance of information, but make this abundance easily discoverable. If there are many articles on your homepage to choose from, site guests are more likely to find the ones to their taste and keep digging deeper into your website. At the same time, the information should be clearly structured and delivered in an accessible manner. Therefore, you don’t need a mess on your homepage, you should present yourself as an authoritative and rich source of information.

Browsing your website is an experience. Why don’t you make this experience similar to traveling?

Consequently, your website should work the way, that once visitors are attracted by this or that ‘country’, they land there in one click and start exploring. Once the first tour is over, they should see more tours below and keep traveling.
