Background music

I had background music the first time I launched my website.  It established the mood I wanted but based on polls, people don’t want to listen to something they didn’t ask for.
 

Colorful backgrounds and neon fonts

Would you like to strain the eyes of your users?
 

Automatic pop-ups

If your objective is to engage customers, a popup can be annoying. Offer rich-content features that your users want to read.
 

Multiple typefaces

Some websites use multiple fonts. “The more the merrier” does not apply to websites. It looks unprofessional.
 

Different page styles

Visitors can get lost in your website. It also destroys whatever branding you are trying to establish.
 

Force visitors to register or sign-up

Sign-ups can be seen as red flags.
 

Use cliché copy

Most people want to make their point clear and use dramatic introductions. I cringe when I look back at the things I’ve written before.
 

Use large heavy photos

Huge files can lag your site and 90% of users are impatient. They will likely leave your website before the image appears.
 

Too much text

Information overload is a turnoff. I am learning myself to always shorten the blogs I write.
 

White over black

Unless you are a gaming or photography site, a high contrast experience will strain the eyes of your users.
