Submission + - What makes a good home page?

An anonymous reader writes: I was just visiting one of my favourite technology sites,, and I noticed that it's had a redesign, which I like a lot. But as a fledgling Web designer just out of university, I wonder what makes a good home page, not just for technology sites but any site in general. Many people quote Google as a good home page design template because it's simple, but in my personal experience, a plain, simple design doesn't work for every site and depends greatly on the content you're trying to promote.
