Let’s face it...there are some websites that the web site designer had design in mind or how far up in the search engines they can rank and it stops there. Over the years I have repeatedly seen too many web designer mistakes. Some designers focus only on design while others focus on search engine ranking. How do we balance this out? I have listed the most common web design flaws below.
Too many images
Sites built in Photoshop
Tables width, where viewer has to scroll to the right and left
Too much animation
Poor use of frames
Too much advertising
Large welcome banners
Under construction pages and/or signs
Scrolling text in the status bar
No address, city or state
All of the above web design flaws can kill your search engine visibility. Search engines can have problems with listing websites that have mostly images, use frames, etc. The search engines look for content rich websites with the use of meta tags, links and properly coded html. When a web designer is focused only on the design they overlook the following:
Title tag missing or improperly used
Meta tags missing or improperly used
Front and backend optimization
No keywords on page or overuse of keywords
Links that are not keyword enriched
Designing your website with a professional look and feel with the search engines in mind will greatly benefit your online experience. To gain a potential client will only come by how professional and trustworthy your website is and how they found you in the search engines. A professional web designer will focus on design and exposure at the same time. If you are shopping for a web site designer then view both designed sites and optimization for these same websites the designer has built.
