What pages should I include on my website?

This is a common question small business owners ask us. It can be a daunting thought to tackle, but we will do our best to simplify this task.

When someone comes to your site, you want to give them exactly what they want and keep them coming back for more. This means you need to have the pages that your customers are looking for and even expect.

As you are building out your website, you need to make sure it has all the right pages. Your homepage and contact page are imperative to any website, but there are other pages you need to be sure to include.

The Four Standard Website Pages

Sure, website pages vary based on business, but to get started, there are four standard pages that every website should have.

  • Homepage
  • About page

Extra Website Page Ideas to Add to Your Website

  • Reviews / Testimonials
  • FAQ
  • Blog
  • Events
  • Careers / Jobs
  • Press / News
  • Gallery
  • Portfolio
  • Case Studies

What Website Pages Are Required To Have?

While you can look at the four standard website pages we suggested as required for a successful website, the most important required page for an information website is actually a Privacy Policy page. A Privacy Policy page is a legal document stating how you are going to treat user’s data on your website. This is an essential part of any website, and yet, it is surprising how many website owners neglect to include one.

  • Privacy Policy page
  • Terms of Use
  • Accessibility Statement
  • Return Policy (E-commerce)
  • Shipping Policy (E-commerce)

This can be a lot of information for someone who is building their website from the ground up. And that is why we’re here to help! Please do not hesitate to contact Stack Host support if you have any questions or concerns.
