Designing a website is not easy as some may think it involves more than just picking appropriate colors, putting in heavy-loaded contents and embed state-of-the-art flashy plug-ins. Adding in a little of that and a little of these, putting in a swirl of a magic wand that provides great color and lots of animated graphic doesn’t make your website standout. In designing a website there are things that we have to do and to avoid as well. On this article I will share to you the things you must avoid in designing a website.
1. Using Cutting-edge Technology. Sure, the latest and the most advance thing are cool to see but you but always remember that some (or maybe most) your visitors do not have the latest version of browsers or plug-ins installed in their system to view your site. Always make sure that your site would run and viewed on a minimal system.
2. Anything That Looks Like Advertising. Since the World Wide Web is a jungle full of advertisement, Web users are becoming annoyed and wary advertising. According to research on Web traffic, Web users have learned to stop paying attention to Web advertisement. Make sure to avoid designing any legitimate information in a manner that looks like advertising such as banner, animation, and pop-ups.
