  1. Make sure the adding some visual elements on the website and we need to make sure the most important content should appear at left top corner, and less important at right bottom corner.

    This is the reason why not-that-well-designed websites with high-quality content gain a lot of traffic over years. Content is more important than the design which supports it. Website  service designer know how to put your product in the right positions, as people normally don’t read the website, they skip and scan the content until they found some keywords which they are looking for. Positions are always important in website development.
  2. Display your product straight away, don’t make the user think

    If the navigation and site architecture aren’t intuitive, the number of question marks grows and makes it harder for users to comprehend how the system works and how to get from point A to point B. A clear structure, moderate visual clues and easily recognizable links can help users to find their path to their aim. Some web designers would like to show their creativity and make the website with too many visual elements and effect. Users may feel impressed when they visit the website for the first time. However, this sometimes generates confuse and enhance the difficulty of use. And those interactive elements sometimes are not showing in the mobile device as the limitation of the bandwidth, or browsers setting. We need to do a large number of testing cases before we release the products online. The most important principle is to make everything intuitive and clean.
  3. Don’t squander user’s patience
    website bad pratice
    Some website want to get as much information as possible from users to help their marketing strategies or reviews. However, this makes users feel uncomfortable and people feel waste time to fill form. In every project when you are going to offer your visitors some service or tool, try to keep your user requirements minimal. The less action is required from users to test a service, the more likely a random visitor is to actually try it out. First-time visitors are willing to play with the service, not filling long web forms for an account they might never use in the future. Let users explore the site and discover your services without forcing them into sharing private data. It’s not reasonable to force users to enter an email address to test the feature.
