As a web designer or developer sometime it can be difficult to decide which font to use for a fresh website. One can be confused to choose an attractive font for website. Font of a website is very important because if people are not attracted by the font, even you have thousand time better content nothing really happen and people will leave the site quickly.
I’ve put together some great-looking sites that use Google Fonts so you can see how others are using this wonderful service by Google in their designs. Google Font is a fantastic free resource that has hundreds of free and open source Web fonts that you can implement in your websites.
1. Open Sans Font :
[ Start Download : All Time – 20,62,157 & Active Installation : Unknown ]
Open Sans was designed by Steve Matteson and comes in 10 different styles, from light to extra bold. The font itself is very simple, professional, and clean, yet it’s very exciting. It has many subtle characteristics such as the capital J with a descender that goes beyond the baseline. Open Sans looks beautiful in small and larger sizes, but the extra bold variation is pure perfection.
There is also an Open Sans Condensed version that comes in 3 styles. Personally, I feel like it is a bit too condensed so it’s not very legible at small sizes, but still does the job in most cases. Visit: https://www.google.com/fonts/specimen/Open+Sans

[ Start Download : All Time – 7,91,220 & ; Active Installation : Unknown ]
Lato is perhaps the most unique and interesting sans-serif font on this list. It was designed by Łukasz Dziedzic and includes 10 styles. It goes from thin all the way to ultra-bold. The letters in Lato have some unique curves which can only be seen in larger sizes. That’s not to say that Lato doesn’t work well in smaller sizes, it’s just that it loses many interesting properties when done so. Visit: https://www.google.com/fonts/specimen/Lato
3. PT Sans Font :
[ Start Download : All Time – 8,99,845 & Active Installation : Unknown ]
PT Sans was designed by ParaType and it comes in 4 styles, normal and bold and italic versions of each. Although it seems like 4 styles are just not enough, they are perfectly fine for most people. Of course, if you’re a designer, you’ll cringe at the thought of only 4 styles and just 2 weights. Helvetica Neue has made us a bit spoiled in that regard. PT Sans has some funky characteristics such as the capital Q’s tail, which sits outside the letter and it makes the letter look more dynamic. Visit: https://www.google.com/fonts/specimen/PT+Sans
4. Source Sans Pro Font :

Source Sans Pro Font was Designed by Paul D. Hunt, Source Sans Pro is the ultimate corporate-style sans-serif web font. It comes in a whopping 12 different styles with weights from extra-light all the way to ultra-bold. The font itself is not the most exciting one on this list, but it is probably the most professional. It works in pretty much every situation and it keeps legibility with every size.

Exo Font is a contemporary geometric font family designed by Natanael Gama. It was initially funded through a kickstarter project, and shortly afterwards released for free to the world. Exo has 18 styles, so you shouldn’t run into issues with not having the perfect weight. The only issue with Exo is that it tends to be a little hard to read when small, and that’s partially because it has many curves and shapes in its letterforms.
