					In layman’s terms, web site architecture, or web architecture, is a method of planning
and designing web sites in which, like in architecture itself, involves technicalities,
aesthetics and functionality. Also, like in architecture, the user and the user’s
requirements and prerequisites are in the top priorities of creating a web site.
  And because of having complex criteria, web architecture requires specific
consideration to web content, business plan and coordination, usability and
functionality, interactivity aesthetics, information structure and web design.
  Also, efficient search engine optimization, or SEO, is necessary to put a web site
within the rankings of popular sites visited in the World Wide Web. Having an
effective SEO services in web architecture is a good advantage for in the web site
industry, for search engine optimization is a standard service.
  As for web content development, stages of planning, design and management come
within the range of web design methods, the traditional design aspects of consistency,
firmness and delight within each content to be published can guide the architecture of
web sites, as they apply physical web architecture and other design principles. Web
site architecture is delving within the scopes of aesthetics and critical theory, and this
trend may accelerate with the introduction of semantic web and Web 2.0. Both of the
ideas accentuate the structural and visual aspects of the content inside a web site.
  Structuralism, an essential part in web architecture, is a methodological approach
that influences several theoretical disciplines such as aesthetics, critical theory and
postmodernism. Having the mentioned disciplines on the helm of any web site
creation, Web 2.0, involving user-generated content, gives guidance to the web
architect to the proper structuring of each piece of information for the browser’s
convenience and satisfaction.
  Web architecture has the possibility to be a term for the structural and aesthetical
discipline of setting up a web site and its content. Web design, on contrast with web
site architecture, sets on the applied responsibilities, on graphics and technicalities, in
designing and publishing a web site. The comparison between the two is relative to
editing a news or features publication such as newspapers and magazines, and to
graphic and print designs, respectively. But the connection between editorial and
production/reproduction services is much relative for web contents than in print
publications.
