    5. To Much Design

    6. Design Is Mismatching

    There should not be any broken links on your site. Links that do not work can be a big annoying factor. So is a cluttered design. Your website should be easy to navigate. If the visitor feels lost or confused he is likely to close your site and move on to another. Hence it is very important to talk to experts like [url=http://www.bigraja.in]Big Raja[/a] while planning your website.

    I would like to add - 

    Paying too much attention (and money) to design and not enought on getting traffic to your website. You are better off being the average looking kid in school, with lots of friend, than the pretty looking kid with none.......

    I've seen many websites use too much Javascript which discourages people from using their sites. Why? Well if you go on any site that needs Javascript to function, if you don't have an updated version on your computer/browser, you will be prompted to download it before you can view the content. So instead of the client viewing information of your business and contacting, you they are trying to figure out how to use an essential part of your site before giving up and going to a competitor.

     

    This is the same for sites that have lots of Flash content. Now, JQuery coding has replaced a lot of flash animations, but I still see sites that stop working if the user doesn't have the right updated versions or simply a browser/device that supports the fancy Flash graphics. 

     

    Now sticking to minimal coding, html5, css3, Ruby, Php with cleaner coding will help not only users but search engines index your site. 

     

    Cheers,
