Philadelphia Website Design Elements You Should Preclude Having on Your Internet site

By: Jason Lomberg

As a Philadelphia Web Designer, you should design your sites to provide your visitors the best ease of use, the finest impression and most important of all a welcoming experience. It doesn't matter if you had the greatest product in the whole world -- if your web site is poorly prepared you will not be able to promote even one copy of it since visitors will be driven off your website by the lousy design.

While I'm discussing about a "high-quality design", I'm not only talking about a high-quality graphical development. A Professional Philadelphia Website Development will be able to point out that there are a lot of components which contribute to a high-quality site design -- accessibility design, interface or layout design, consumer experience design and of course the most up-front, which is graphic design.

Hence, I have highlighted a number of features of the worst internet designs I've come across. Hopefully, you will be able to evaluate that against your own internet as a checklist and if anything on your internet fits the criteria, you ought to know it's high time to take serious action!

Background music
Unless you are running a website which promotes a rock band, a Compact disk or anything associated to music, I would really counsel you to stay away from putting looping background music onto your website. It might sound pleasant to you at first, but imagine if you ran a big internet with hundreds of pages and everytime a customer browses to an additional page on your internet site, the background music starts playing yet again. If I were your customer, I'd just turn off my speakers or leave your site. Moreover, they just add to the site visitors burden when viewing your site -- viewers on dial up connections will have to wait longer just to view your internet as it is meant to be viewed.

Extra large/small text size
As I said, there is more to website design than purely graphics -- consumer convenience is one large part of it too! You should design the text on your site to be legible and moderately sized to enable your site visitors to interpret it without straining their eyes. No matter how good the content of your site or your sales copy is, if it's illegible you will not be selling anything!

Popup windows
Popup windows are therefore blatantly used to display advertisements that in my mind, 90% of popup windows are not worth my consideration so I just close them on instinct everytime each one manages to pass through my popup blocker (yes, I do have one like many users out there!) and, well, pops up on my screen. Imagine if you had a very important message to convey and you put it in a popup window that gets killed most of the time it appears on a visitor's screen. Your website loses its meaning immediately!

In concluding this article, let me remind you that as a webmaster your occupation is to make sure your website does what it's meant to do effectively. Don't let some minor errors stop your internet site from functioning optimally!
