I have been making websites for a good period of time. From my experience i have learned that on should avoid some common mistakes while making a website. Please read on..
Avoid Flash: Although i love flash and being a web designer it is the best tool to show my creativity, i have reduced the use of flash on websites as many handheld devices like smartphones, ipads do not play flash movie. And if you want to play it you either need to install a different browser or plugin. Most people don’t take such pains and would easily miss out the information that you put on flash movie.
Don’t Use Lengthy contact forms: People generally avoid filling up a lengthy contact form a contact form should be precise. But if your requirement is such where every details are important you may go otherwise.
Keep your website navigation simple: The important pages of website should be easily accessible to a user and the navigation should not be complicated. It is good to have your links in text form as it can be more easily read by search engines.
Images should be optimized: The images on your web page should be well optimized with proper alt tags and naming.
Content:The content on your website should be informative and precise.
Avoid audio or music: Do not use audio or music that plays automatically when the website loads as it can be annoying for website visitors.
Avoid Pop Ups: Personally as a user i find pop ups quite distracting. Specially on small devices like smart phones these pop ups cover up the whole screen and it becomes really difficult to get rid of them. Use a pop up only when required . Permanent pop ups are big turn offs.
Spelling Mistakes: Always use a spell checker when writing content for website. Spelling mistakes leave a bad impression on your website visitors.

There are millions of websites on the internet today. A website has become one of the most crucial medium of making people aware about your products or services. But among these millions of websites how do you get your website noticed? This is a big question.
You may have the best product. You may be the most talented professional in your field but if your website is not known to people who are looking for you, it is a cause of concern. If you are one of these people whose website is not getting the right audience then you need to hire a seo expert with good credentials.
SEO stands for search engine optimization. It is a process of making your website friendly for search engines. This is basically a specialized job so be very careful when handling your website to someone for seo. A website that implements good seo practices will always get higher and better ranking on search engines. Google is the biggest search engine at the moment and ranking well on google can be very beneficial for any website.
The algorithms of google are always changing and it is important for any seo to adapt to these new changes. SEO is a field that requires constant learning.
You may be a real estate agent, a professional artist or dealing in some specialized products and services, a website has the potential to give you more customers, clients and business so spending some money on hiring a good seo is definitely not a bad idea! I have seen many websites that are well designed with good content and graphics but still do not get any visitors. The reason for this is lack of understanding among people about website seo.
The reach of internet event to some of the remotest and farthest place has made world a smaller place. It is possible to expand your business and services to many areas you never thought of by having a website. A good website with proper seo can give your business the required boost. It is one of the most cost effective way of making your presence known to your targeted audience . SEO is cheaper than print, television and any other form of marketing and advertising. So do not let you website’s potential go waste.
