Hi, web design is really important for SEO. Basically, your site should be easy to crawl for search bots and provide a good user experience. This means:
1. Avoid complex layouts that may not be crawlable by search engines
2. Web pages should be mobile friendly. You can use Google's PageSpeed Insights tool to check if your website is mobile friendly
3. It should be easy to navigate for users, otherwise it will increase visitor bounce rate for your site and lower rankings. Bounce rate is an SEO ranking factor.
4. For landing pages, provide key content such as h1, h2, call to action and important text above the fold.
5. Your website should load fast, and avoid flash if possible
6. It should not have annoying popup ads as this increases bounce rate and reduces time on site.
7. The text should be easy to read

Well designed websites help users understand your business and have good conversion rates. People tend to spend more time on your website. Time spent on site is another SEO ranking factor.

The design of your site is important because it is the first impression of your website and business that your visitors get. Good web design should leave a lasting and positive impression. It is always a good idea to have a clean and clutter-free home page that will not cause your visitors to leave as soon as they log on.

Web Design Importance

Yep, bounce rate is definitely not a ranking factor, nor should it ever be. A bounce does not mean a page was bad. It might mean the person found what they were looking for. Plus, Google has no idea what the bounce rate is on most webpages, so they couldn't use it if they wanted to.

Same with time on the site.
Hi,

Web Design is very important because "First Impression is the Best Impression"
Website will depict the history and legacy of your company, products and services provided by the company and much more information.
If a customer or a client has to work with your company, its the website which they first login and check the details.
Website should be responsive, engaging and interactive.
Website is one of the main requirement for any organisation to build a successful image and business in the market.

I think design should be on the basis of the screen size. Most of the mobile and tablets are choosing to have AMP (accelerated mobile page) option. As you can see that option may limit the amount of design you can have. But for desktop and laptop or TV screen, the web pages need to have decent resolution. So I think design is important factor for managing SEO for those device size and resolution. It may not apply for all types of designs.

True. AMP does make up for the lack of mobile-friendly design (even though it's highly recommended, since, as mentioned, Google PageSpeed Insights does take that into account, too), but that doesn't mean you can simply neglect it. Stuff like font-size, image load and overall optimization are still taken into consideration, so keep them in mind.
The layout itself, though, doesn't have much importance to SEO: it's still fundamental to gather users, but, luckily for us, Google's search algorithm doesn't take aesthetics into account.

Yes, the website layout and structure really impact the visitors' experience. If your website bounce rate always on a high level, Google will regard it as less relevant to the topic.

Hello Yunarel
Have a wonderful day.

Google search engine and another search engine have a power to break the web design template in to very much smaller pixel. Web design is not highly connected with SEO but you can not copy paste or hack another person web design. You have to create an unique web design for your website so that visitor can find some thing new from your website.

Thanks

The site framework and layout really impact the visitors' experience. If your website bounce rate always on a advanced level, Google will regard it as less appropriate to the subject.

There are many other factors that play a key role in improving your SEO, but responsive design is something that cannot be ignored, and without it your SEO picture will be incomplete.

Website design always have a fundamental role in SEO. It can make or break your website when it comes to SEO of your website. Your website design consists of text, images, videos and layout of your website. If your website has poor design, lets say the content on your website is too hard to read or complicated or the colour scheme is ugly then surely the person who is searching for an answer will go back to search engine to find a better result of their search. This action is called Bouncing which is not good for google ranking. Google highly consider a bounce rate of any website when it rank it. It is also known as Pogo Sticking that tells google that the customer was not satisfied by this website. So in order to praise google in ranking high your website you should consider some basic rules while designing your website. Clear content as i mention above, also make sure the size of your content is right and the colour of it is not too light so that the visitor on your website and read it easily. Second is do not add too many popups, they are good for marketing but do not use them to pop as soon as a visitor enters your website. You need to build your trust first before suggesting them anything. Third is never play a n audio or video automatically on your website or make sure that it is muted. The loading speed of your website counts a lot, make sure not to add heavy files and images that can slow your website. There are many other factors as well. Hope this will help you.

A well designed website must effect your SEO ranking because the sites design must be optimized by the user experience and for the the bounce rate for a website will increase or decrease. If your site is well designed then the visitors will stay your site and it helps to reduce your bounce rate if not then the bounce rate will increase.

Yes, web design is important for any website from SEO perspective. It is not necessary to know web design but it will be good if you will discuss about the design of website with an SEO person. Because the structure of website is really important from SEO perspective. Every page of your website should be accessible by search engine crawler to get better search engine ranking.
