Web page design is not an easy task. If you want to do it yourself, keep in mind that nowadays one of the most important aspects of a good web page is cleanness. Long gone are the days when your every website page could have been filled with everything from ads to content without much consideration. Now, especially because in every niche you get so much completion, your web page has to be clean. What I mean by that is when a person visits your website page, he or she has to immediately get the sense of where they will find the information they are after. Remember, leaving your website is just one click away.
As far as design itself goes, there is still a lot of discussion between the two column layouts vs three column layouts, I personally prefer the former, however the trend has been that variety is actually better. Take your web page and think about all the information if should contain. If we are talking about a continuous flow of content, articles and blog pots, you are probably better off with a two column layout where the second one serves as a navigation bar as well as a place to place some banners and ads.
However, for landing pages and product pages, go beyond thinking solely about columns. Top websites now often experiment with rows of a variety of widths. Some rows can be two columns, others may be three or even four. But make no mistake. Varying rows and columns is not for the sake of varying. It must serve a purpose. Think of a natural way your visitor browses through your web page. Does he need to make a choice between two options? Maybe there are three key benefits you are trying to portray?
