9 Major Web Design Mistakes You Need to

Stop Immediately

The design of your website has a lot to do for attracting your visitors,

your customers and mainly the search engines. Websites that have

proper layout designs along with perfect content on their webpages

will rank higher in the search engines. But when beginners start

working, they generally make mistakes for their site using HTML and

CSS effects. If you are using your tags wrong you will receive a bad

user experience.

Here we will discuss some crucial points that that need to be stopped

immediately if present in the website design.

Content is Not Clear

If the content on your website is a good quality content but

is not easy to read or is not very clear then it would be of no

use. What is the use of writing informative and good quality

content when the content is not visible to your readers? It

might be because the color combination that you have used

is not good. If you are using light coloured content over light

coloured background, you cannot attract visitors on it.

Always use a light coloured background and dark coloured

fonts. It always looks nice and attracts your visitors easily.

Clean and simple text on your homepage in the central area

which could be easily visible will only get you potential

customers and permanent clients.

Over advertising

Advertising always irritates your visitors, especially when

they are browsing through something important. These

disturbing advertisements can make your visitors annoyed

and they will leave your website before even landing to the

home page. If you want to use ads always make sure that

you are using ads that are beneficial for you. Do not take any

chance. It is never worthy to earn from ads at the cost of the

Complicated Graphics

We always think to give our customers the best. For

providing them with the best we always provide them more

than required. Like it always looks good to have flash

designs on your website, cute gifs on your page has always

been a great idea but avoid the draw. Complex designs

might take away the content from your website and might

annoy your visitors and in result they will navigate from your

site to some other website.

The cleaner the website the easier it is to understand for the

readers. If your page contains more gigabytes then it is

better o remove it because it will take a little long to get

loaded and will make your visitors move away.

Pop Ups

Like advertising, Pop Ups are also irritating and they force

visitors unnecessarily to juggle the multiple windows and

pages rather than simply hitting the back button to return to

the pages where they already were. Many people use pop-up

block function on in their browser which means that they

either have to approach each and every pop up site thrown

at them. With all such pop ups the visitor generally miss the

useful content on the website. One should always avoid

using such pop ups because these advertisements generally

contain dangerous spam.

Complicated Navigation

Whether it is your menu, drop down menu or your website is

having no menu at all try to provide easy content to your

visitors for what they are looking for. Do not make your

visitors struggle hard for finding the content they are looking

for. It should be easy for your customer to navigate your

website. You need very simple and menu for your website to

make users feel that yes they are at the right place. Do not

shove everything on your homepage. Leave something for

inner pages too. Nobody go through a long page and nobody

wants to read huge blocks. This thing will only force your

visitors to move to the back button.

Avoid Automatic Music

If your website is a music website and have songs in it then

do not play songs randomly. It should not happen that a

visitor opens your website and he/she is welcomed by a

song. You have to decide when to play them. The best idea is

to place a play button on the website and allow your users to

listen to the songs. They will play their selves if they want to

Do not make use of badges in excess

When you use badges in large numbers it will make your

website look very fussy. It will make them feel that you are

promoting your website on your own very much. If you have

a list of badges and you want to show it to your visitors and

customers then try to fix few badges around your website

and then place the rest of the badges inside the About Us

Do Not make use of HTML tables but use


Using HTML Tables is old fashioned now. One must grow

with the technology. Consider using CSS in your web pages

instead of using HTML tables. These CSS sheets are much

faster than the Hyper Text Markup Language. CSS is

considered as a much better layout as compared to HTML.

CSS is used for formatting the content structure.

HTML will enable you to have a webpage into your browser

regardless of how it will look like but CSS will make it more

Do not use CAPTCHA Filtering

Having Captcha on your website always create problems for

the visitors. So it is always advised not to use Captcha on

your website. In case if it is compulsory to use Captcha for

your website specially for stopping the spam comments or

the email subscriptions then make sure that the words and

the numbers are readable on it.

in mind and stay away from

all these web design

mistakes it will help you in

creating a simple, user-

friendly and clean

experience for the visitors

purpose of your website but
