One-page websites have been around for a long time now, but only in recent couple of years we have seen such a large influx of people who want to use one-page templates to promote their business, their apps, or their portfolio. One-page websites in that sense are great because they remove clutter, and they establish a foundation of a single page (one page) to convey all the necessary information, only to lead up to a call to action (if necessary) for signing up, for purchasing, or for otherwise engaging with your idea. The most successful one-page websites know that the focus should remain only on the essentials, meaning there’s no room for rubbish!
Of course, we should still remember about things like organic marketing (Google and such), and one-page websites don’t really impose any threats for building well-strucutred websites that can also benefit from pagination (each part of the single page can be optimized for different anchors through the use of HTML elements), and also external link building; once again making sure that external links point to your specific anchors. Other such concepts include optimizing our code for search engine spiders, and ensuring that we are using the right HTML tags and elements to highlight our most important aspects of the website we are running.
If you are looking for some cool inspiration as to what has been built with the concept of one-page in mind, we recommend this piece from Creative Market, in which there is some insight about the best tips for building a one-page website, but also a number of examples of other businesses and individuals who have used the concept of one-page to build state of the art websites.

When putting together our list of the best Bootstrap one-page templates, we took all of the above tips and recommendations in mind to provide you with the best possible roundup of such templates to date. We hope you can find a combination of styles and colors that resonate with your idea, and do let us known in the comments once your project has gone live as we would love to check it out!
