Common web site sins:

  1. Unclear message - you have 20-40 seconds from the time a person clicks on your link in a search engine for your website to load and capture your visitor with a compelling message.
  2. Multimedia overload. Just because you can add flash, animation and sound doesn't mean you should.

  3. Long download times- Research shows that after 10 seconds, users lose interest--Design a speedy site.

  4. Using frames - Breaking up your pages with frames is confusing for your visitors and difficult for search engines to index.

  5. Dead links and orphan pages. Make sure all your links and pages function properly.

  6. Awkward Navigation - Did you know the average Web site user can find the information he or she wants only 42% of the time? Get the latest techniques for helping your customers use your site with ease.

  7. Splash screens that redirect to another web page - A large percentage of visitors never make it past these well-intentioned introductory pages.

  8. Ads, irrelevant links and Non-Stop Animation will drive customers away. Your website must solve your customers problem and make it easy for them to understand your business.

  9. Putting too much informagion into one page - The majority of users will totally miss content not immediately visible. Increase your websites' effectiveness by streamlining its design and breaking up content into multiple pages.

  10. Not enough new quality content, too much fluff - Keep good information on your site and retain archival information while updating your site regularly. Visitors will notice your stagnant designs and outdated information.
