Webdesign is the most important thing in this online world. Because web design of a website makes one website different from other website and give it a different identity then others. Its commonly known that “content is everything for a website”, but if any website have very useful content but have a useless web design then no will be interested in reading that content. That’s why if anyone wants to make its website popular and successful then website’s design should be attractive and user friendly. Most of the web designers tries to make most creative design in websites of normal interest, which makes difficulty for the average user to use that website. Website’s user friendliness should be the first priority of any web designer. Today we are going to discuss some common mistakes which designers make in web design. These are those mistakes which make website unfriendly for the users, below is the list of mistakes which web designer must avoid.
1. Poor Readability
The excessive use of most stylish, big and bold fonts to make the website more beautiful is one of the most common mistakes web designers make. Designers use very colorful and stylish fonts, which surely makes their design more beautiful. But average users can’t get all of the info out of this design which not only waste users time but they also waste a lot of money of the website owner.
2. Bad Navigation
Navigation for between the website should be easier for the users and designer should make it easy for the users. Some web designers don’t even place menu at the top of the web page, but menu at the top of the page is must to navigate easily between the website. Because without menu at the top user can’t know what this website have in it. Second thing is that most of the websites use many popups and “content you may like widgets” which don’t let users easily read the content they are reading. Most recommended way to link related content is use of small sized text, this way designers can also decrease the page size but will also make it easier for the users to read.
3. Unfriendly Screen Resolution
Unfriendly screen resolution is another big mistake which web designer make. Most of the computers use 1024 X 768 as their screen resolution and every designer should optimize its design with that resolution. Because this will make the website compatible with most of the computers in the world. Another reason why every designer should optimize its website with the resolution mentioned above is that every user hate to browse the website horizontally. You can check Google analytics to know the the screen resolution of most of your users then you can optimize you website with that resolution.
4. Unnecessary fields in registration forms
Another big problem which designers create in web design is use of complicated registration forms. Well many of the websites use many unnecessary fields in registration forms like address, postal codes, phone numbers, office numbers, home number etc. We think only some basic information is needed to communicate with the users like Name, email and password, because almost every website use emails to communicate with their users. Try to make the registration simple, easy and fast to save the time of others.
5. Search Bar
Search bar is very necessary for every website because search bar let users to search for the content of their interest in any website. Google custom search is the best “search engine” for any website and web designer should use that in their projects because it knows the every corner of every website.
So, these are some common mistakes made by the web designers. Web designers should avoid such common but big mistakes to make the web site more user friendly. We hope you will like the stuff but stay in touch with us because their is coming more.
