The Best Font For Websites Are Complementary Font Combinations

Find The Best Font For Websites

You want to build your blog with good looking fonts.  That’s actually more important than you might realize.  And many people underestimate the influence of their selection of fonts on their website performance.  Because hard to read fonts or fonts combinations that don’t work well together will turn off viewers and might just drive them away.  In this digital world where attention spans are short too begin with, picking a good complementary font combination can make a difference.  Hey, you want them to visit and hang around on your website longer so use the best font for websites that you can find.

Font Combinations Should Be Mobile Friendly

Those font combinations should be readable on a desktop as well as mobile devices.  I discovered that simply by testing font combinations on a test page for my website and then trying to read it on my iPhone and iPad.  Much to my dismay, I found that the first font combination I ever used on the first website I ever built sucked!  It looks ok on a monitor but stunk on a small display screen of my smartphone.  I strongly suggest you pick and test your font combination first because going back to redo font combinations in your graphics for your blog is a lot of re-work you don’t want.  Ahhh, maybe you didn’t think about those font combinations for your graphics but you should.  Your use of fonts is part of your brand; those font combinations help viewers recognize you from other websites and blogs.  This isn’t really anything new; its just common sense.

Test Font Combinations On Screen Or Mobile

The next step is to create a private test page on your website and type in some text or you can use lorem ipsum text***.  Make the heading one font type and the text the other.  View it on your monitor and on your smartphone.  If you like how it looks, then you’ve just determined the complementary font combination to use.

***Note: If you don’t know what lorem ipsum text is, it is just placeholder text you can use during tests on your blog or website.  Use it as a placeholder for text in widgets, headlines, or whenever you’re testing the look of a layout or in this case the font combinations you want to use.  To get lorem ipsum text just use a lorem ipsum generator.  You can Google for one or use the provided below.
