Making sure that your website is easy to perceive and grasp at first glance for a user is very important as it increases usability factor. Poorly designed websites may have features hidden through a special interaction or they’re not labelled as efficiently as they could be hampers the users experience. A god website that is easily perceived at first glance is what designers should aim for.
