Common Mistakes in Website Design

Website Design,Internet
Every one of us has seen different kinds of website design because we all network savvy. For most us, coming across a bad design is much easier than a good website design layout. BrandMantra feels the same way, as there are lot of websites that have a poor website design and layout. These are some common mistakes that are found in the bad website design layout.

Using bad fonts

Do you even remember when you visit a website with fancy script font that is very hard to read? Most website developer will agree that fancy scripts font must not be used in body text; otherwise, your reader won’t be able to read anything. Use fonts that are easy to read.

Other mistake is some people use non-standard font in their websites. If their reader is only a common person who doesn’t have so many additional fonts, they will be confused and say, “Why is the font size in this website is very small?” Some of us experienced this when there is the use of non-standard font for my website to enhance readability. However, unfortunately, it makes people complain about my website. Just use common font like Arial, Helvetica, Verdana, Georgia, or Times New Roman, which every people has in their computer.

Without any Image Only Text

Believe me, people will be bored if they see text only and they will leave your website once they are tired of reading your ocean of words article. This is internet, not a personal development book. If you don’t have idea about what image you should add, just use any image related with your post title. Don’t leave your body text alone without any images.

No Distinctive Paragraphs in Long Content

Even though you have inserted images on your article, you should remember to separate some sentences with a paragraph. Imagine that you are reading more than 500 words article without any paragraph on it. It is confusing right? With some sentences separated with paragraph, people will find it easier to read your article.

Very Tiny Font Size

Have you ever visited a website and you have to zoom in to read the content? This is bad; make your body text at least 12pt to make sure that your body text is readable enough. If not, people will have to provide large magnifier to read your article.

Using Flash Heavily

Almost any Flash usage will bring benefit to your visual perception. But unfortunately, Flash usage will only make your website slower to open and it gives more chance for new visitors to leave you quickly. Reduce usage of Flash, unless it’s needed to explain something. We personally don’t really like websites which has Flash intro. They are annoying and wasting my time.

Body Text above Colorful Background

Most of good websites use plain color background to enhance its readability. If you use colorful background to make it nicer, you are absolutely wrong. It only makes people tired of reading your articles, because the body text color is blended with background image. Make your background plain & put image somewhere else where there are no text.

Too Much Advertisement

Have you seen a website full of banner advertisement & Google AdSense inside? We are sure that you will leave that website once you have done with it, or worse case, you will instantly hit close and move to another website. Never prioritize advertisement over content. Good websites always place advertisement in proper places, which aren’t bothering the main content of websites.

Unwanted Pop Ups

Websites which has unstoppable pop ups annoys people and their users. We want to look for information, but the pop up interferes & wastes my time.

Author Bio: Most of the users are techno-savvy and therefore use solutions that enable easy visibility. To ensure this, website developer are going an extra mile to solve the problems. To know more about the different services, please visit BrandMantra.
