As the number of people with access to the World Wide Web continues to increase exponentially, the number of personal Home Pages is exploding as well.
A good webpage design, doesn't overuse inline images and has a consistent layout and organization. The more extensive the page or pages, the more important it is to have navigational aids like "what's new" pages and tables of contents. Also don't go overboard with slow - loading graphics and optimize the graphics you do use by making them smaller and using fewer colours.
A good webpage always give you a sense that there is something beneath the surface, and that exploration will be rewarded with new discoveries. This doesn't necessarily mean dozens of different pages; it's a matter of using hypertext in an intelligent way to expand the impact of the material you do have.
