Pageless sites have become very popular the past few years and for very good reason. Single page websites are perfect for restaurants, local service businesses, basic info sites, personal sites and eCommerce sites with less than 6 products. Single page sites are also very easy to navigate, especially on mobile devices. Pageless sites can also typically be deployed faster than a traditional multipage site.

Single page websites – Pros
Less to manage - Less content, less images and less website to manage. No need to worry about broken links or other pages.
Lower prices - Building one-page site typically cost less than building a standard 5+ page website. Typically design time is also shorter.
Great for mobile - Single page sites display great on mobile and since scrolling down is the only navigation they can easily be digested.
Single page websites – Cons
Bad for SEO - Search engines like tons of content and a high volume of pages. Single page sites simply can’t satisfy the search engines as well. Very careful one-page SEO should be done and the page should be broken down into specific sections and each section optimized for keywords and content.
Lots of scrolling - Single page websites do require a lot of scrolling. Adding some toggle buttons to specific sections helps, but some people will not like that. Keeping your graphics and content interesting will help keep your visitors scrolling and taking in your content.
Limited content - A pageless website is only going to look good and read well with a certain amount of content. Make sure to plan your content well. Too much or too little content and the page will be ineffective.
