Your Options are wide open when you start designing a website, But you should follow some web design standard when you design a website. Because all the business are getting benefit from a quality websites. Here I have listed most common mistakes you should not do when you design a website.
Try to use fewÂ colorÂ combinations, rather than confusing and making users leave your website instantly.Â
If you have lot of text information, do not use dark background and light textÂ colorÂ which strains the human eyes.Â
Do not use light text on light background, because it makes harder for the users to read.
Do not use small fonts. If you want your visitors to read your content, go for 12 or 13px Arial and 11 or 12px Verdana. Â
Do not use multi font family in your website. It will give an impression of unprofessional.
Do not avoid using ALT attribute for image. You need to consider the blind users who use screen readers to surf the web. Make sure your texts are short and clear, of course it is a big benefit in SEO.
Most of the users visit your website through the help of the search engines. Search engines like header tags. So make sure you Include header tags for your titles.
Give some space in each paragraph, it will be more attractive to your text and it will increase the readability.
Do not align center to all the texts in your website.
Do not use lot more animation unless you have advertising banners or something that required animation.
Do not auto-play music. If you want to play music let user controls it. You should include â€œPlayâ€ â€œStopâ€ and â€œpauseâ€ options.Â
Do not let the users click more than two or three times to get in to the content. If they can not find the content within three clicks they will get frustrated and leave your website quickly.
Let users know which page they are in. This will give them a very good usability boost in any site.
