When looking for ways to build of your web site, even minor steps can make a huge difference. The most helpful information and best content will have little impact without simple protocols that make your Web site easier to use and more visually appealling. This paper focuses on 10 tips you can employ to ensure your web site is effective from the day it goes live.

1. Accessibility
Web site accessibility has recently become a very important issue in the web community. Because of Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, all web sites and pages created by Federal agencies and Federal contractors after June 21, 2001 must comply with its provisions. The purpose of the law is to make web sites accessible to all individuals, including those with disabilities.
2. Security
Security is crucial to the success of your web site. There are several steps you can take to minimize the risk that your web sites will be subjected to a breech in security.
3.Web Server Statistics
How many visitors do you have? What pages do they frequent? What times do they log on? Utilize a web tool to assist you in not only collecting these statistics but also analyzing and correlating them.
4. Dynamic Technologies Styles
Are the pages within your site beginning to feel and act a little plain? Would you like more ways to format your documents and give users more interaction with them?
5. Efficient Use of Appropriate Design Software
In the past, many web developers eschewed graphical web editing packages and boasted of developing pages using a simple text editor (for example, Notepad). There is still a place for text editors, but efficient designers and developers both use appropriate design software, often manually tweaking the code.
6. Standards and Browser Independence
Web site development has come a long way. There are lots of new tools that will help with web-page design, not to mention web sites that offer suggestions and ideas for making your web site absolutely incredible.
7. Database Access with Server-side Scripting Languages
Static web pages are good place to start, but they quickly can become time intensive and not an efficient use of a designer or developer's time. Database-driven web sites can refresh their own data, presenting up-to-the-minute data in way manual updates could never do.
8. Using Image Editors for Fast Loading Graphics
9. Site Planning, Design, and Management
10.Technological Flexibility
