Every day many websites are going live with as many design concepts, we encounter some of the best designs we have ever seen and on the other the hand, sometimes we come across so silly designed websites that prove to be a coffin for that website. Any new visitor coming to that particular website will found himself lost and will abandon the website with that kind of design. So, now the big question is how should we design our website or what are the most common web design mistakes web designers make?
Building a website can be daunting but the real challenge lies in making it usable. The problem is most web designers forget that the website wasn’t created for themselves but to solve the users’ needs. They give creativity priority over practicality and usability.
Let’s see some,
Out of many mistakes that we may or may not have seen, we are going to talk out the most blunderous mistake web designers do.
The web is like an archive of information. Whether it’s a corporate website or merely a blog, a search box is essential. The visitor might be looking for something that is hidden within the website, with the search box, chances are, visitors will get what they want.
Suggestions: Google Custom Search is a neat, simple and effective way to get started. It enables visitors to search your site in an efficient manner. Just copy the HTML code from the control panel and paste it into your website and that’s it, you’ve got a search function right on your website.
This is a crucial element of web design. Of course, a good interface design will grab the users’ attention but users have to read the text to be able to grasp the information they desire. Some websites use the most bizarre font styles and sizes that make reading a pain.
Suggestions: Fortunately, there are simple ways that you can do to improve the users’ reading experience on your website.
A website’s content is what drives traffic to it. How the content is structured is what will make it a success or a failure. Users do not read unless absolutely necessary but scan through information and pick out points of interest on a web page. Some designers just put a block of text on the web page and totally neglect headings, sub-headings, bullets, keywords, paragraphs, etc.
Use an appropriate page title for each web page so users know exactly where they are. Some designers even forget to name the web page.
Overall, the worst in this category will be putting inaccurate, inaccessible, insignificant or out-of-date content on your website. The content must coincide with the overall theme of the website and be useful. If a page is under construction, why bother putting it up? If a designer really must, then it is only temporary and 3 weeks will no longer be deemed temporary.
Suggestions: Organize content on your website using HTML and CSS should be used when creating the design of your pages.
Navigation within a website should be seamless. Users should be able to find their way around easily. While there is no standard for navigation within a website, especially now as more new web development technologies emerge, it is imperative to understand that navigation must be intuitive and consistent.
If the text is used as navigation, it should be concise. Visual metaphors should not be re-invented. If hyperlinks are used, then they should stand out from the body of the text. Dead links should have no place on any web page whatsoever. This increases user confusion and wastes time. And one that is even just as worse is having a link on the homepage that links to the homepage.
Remember, if users can’t find what they want in less than 3 clicks, most will leave immediately.
Excessive creativity can be just that. Excessive! Some designers take it to another level when creating websites by creating different designs for every web page within a website. This is by no means confusing to the user. And utterly annoying. No matter how outstanding and attractive a website is, if the overall look and feel is not consistent, users cannot relate to it and feel less in control. Thus, leaving as soon as they arrived.
I’m sure we’ve visited websites where you have to scroll horizontally. This is an absolute no-no in modern web design. A good designer will develop websites that fit on most screen sizes. The currently optimized layout for websites currently is 1024 x 768 pixels.
Suggestions: It’s hard and almost impossible to cater the design to fit every resolution especially when visitors are now surfing from mobile phones and netbooks, but we can get a rough idea what are the generally used screen resolutions with these following ways:
Registration forms are tricky. How much information do you require from the user? Gone are the days where a user had to enter a zillion details to register to your website. Some websites make most registration fields mandatory and validate the fields to the extent where the user is frustrated after a few tries. Remember, users, visit a website to acquire information. Not the other way round.
Someecard‘s simple form makes registration painless.
Suggestions: Compare registration forms across communities on the web and understand what basic information is required of the user during the registration process.

Too many images on a web page is a huge turn-off. Images can be used to capture users’ attention but it can also be a distraction or just plain aggravating. Images should be used to illustrate and guide the user where appropriate.
Animations are awesome and a powerful medium. Especially when used appropriately. When it’s a cycle or just too much on a web page, it gets on the users’ nerves. Users don’t have the patience, time or resources so designers must offer alternatives or better yet, the skip button if it’s a full page animation.
More: Flash: 99% Bad – Use Flash appropriately. It’s been almost 10 years since Jakob Nielsen published this article but it’s still relevant in terms of Flash usability especially the Breaks Web Fundamentals piece.
Too many designers forget about whitespace and its importance. They are so engulfed in their own design creativity that they forget that it’s not about them. Thus, they try to cram as much as they can onto a single page. End result? A busy, cluttered and unreadable page.
kylestanding make good use of whitespace in their design.
Here are few articles to give you a good idea of the importance of whitespace in web design:
Users don’t want cool, they seek efficiency. And yes, 99 percent don’t care about the music on your website. Some designers make it worse by putting different background music on every web page.
Suggestions: Don’t use background music, but if you must, create a frame for the code and user controls. That way, the music loops continuously, instead of changing each time a new page is loaded within the website. And the user can stop or pause whenever.
K.I.S.S is the bottom line, oh I meant Keep It Simple, Stupid. And that is actually what people are liking most in a website, if it is simple, it’s easily usable.
Hope you have gained much of insight on common web design mistakes.
This one is dedicated to most of the blog posts written on our blog. As there are more than 130+ blogs on our site, it is tough for a human to go through all of them and there might be a possibility that he/she might loose some important piece of information.
So here’s a recap of most of our blog posts those can be of value to you. Let’s begin our flashback of blog posts.
#14 Top 10 PHP CMS
We tried to summate all of them in this single list, but there are still many left since we didn’t want to surfeit the blog post with so many links.
Although we think that some of them maybe of value to you.
Being a content writer/blogger, this is the biggest challenge one faces after some time as the content you are posting should be fresh, should be of your niche and should be in trend. Now, to put all three factors at one place and then generating a fresh new blog out of it could be messy, time consuming and confusing at times.
So, now the big question arises, How to find topics for your blog?
Thanks to technological advancements, now we have certain online tools to determine the weight of the topic and how much attraction is it going to generate.
Content about trending topics is beneficial because you know that what you’re writing about is already popular. There’s likely to be good search volume and it’s something that is top of mind for your target audience. Combination of evergreen content and trending content is likely to be liked by people.
When referring to trending content, this isn’t just referring to what is popular today, but also topics and issues that may have been trending over a longer period.
It’s sometimes difficult to keep up to date with the niche you blog about. Imagine topics such as WordPress, web design and digital marketing; they are tough to keep up with and have many new articles and news pieces per day. Keeping up to date with everything being written would probably take up most of your day. This is where Google Alerts can help to find topics for your blog.
You can set up alerts for articles containing keywords that you specify. You’ll then receive emails from Google containing links to new articles they find that are relevant for the keywords you are monitoring. You can set alerts up with several options. I am content with just getting the best results once per day, but you can set up alerts to email you everything as it happens. If the topic you blog about is very popular, you may find getting alerts for everything a little too much.
Question and answer sites like Quora can somtimes proves to be a great source to gather idea for your blog post. You can sign up and follow specific topics. You can then set up email updates about the most relevant questions and answers for your interests.
Often the questions being asked are great topics for blog posts as you can see what information people want to know more about right now. Obviously, you shouldn’t just copy the answer provided. You should answer the question in your own way and make sure that you add value to the answer.
If you want to find out the most popular news for the topics you blog about, Reddit should be one of your go-to resources. Everything here is shared by its members and up-voted if it is popular. It is a great way to filter through the less interesting news, plus the comments can be very insightful. Reddit users can comment on each post and often have quite lengthy discussions. This can help you home in on specifically what your potential readers find most interesting about the news piece.
Reddit isn’t just for news, people also use the site to post questions. Similar to Q&A specific sites, these questions and answers can be a great source of blog post ideas since you will know what your target readers want to find out more about.
Google Trends is a great tool for viewing search interest for keywords and topics over time. If you haven’t used it before and don’t know what it is, Trends provides search demand data direct from Google. You can view this data by keyword, location, topic and country. You can then decide if interest in the topic you want to write about is increasing, decreasing or has remained stable over time.
Not only can you check the trends of keywords you are already aware of, but Trends will provide both the top and rising related topics and queries. You can use these topics and queries as inspiration for blog post ideas that are gaining popularity.
The comments sections of posts are a great source for blog post ideas. Often, questions are asked in the comment section when a post didn’t go into enough detail or perhaps, didn’t touch upon a related topic. These readers want to know more and it is this information you can create a post around.
The comments you research can either be on your own posts, with you expanding upon something you have already written, or you could get your ideas from the comments sections of other people’s posts. Obviously, if you are looking for trending topics, then you will want to be monitoring the most recent posts. To keep up to date with all the latest articles, consider signing up for your favourite sites’ email newsletters, so you don’t have to manually check for new posts.
People often go to forums for advice and many of the questions asked on them are likely to make interesting blog posts. When selecting topics to write about, try and find those that have had quite a lot of engagement as well as being recent. If there are multiple threads about the same issue, it’s likely to be a hot topic and something worth posting about.
Some of the tools used here aren’t always going to be able to alert you to the hot topics; the things that everyone is talking about right now. For example, the traditional keyword research tools like Adwords Keyword Planner won’t provide you with the data you need to identify something is trending right now, but rather they will alert you to trends over long time periods. If you’re keen to write pieces about today’s hot topics, then monitoring hashtags will be a useful strategy.
If you want to keep it simple, you could go to Twitter, Facebook, Instagram or any hashtag using social network of your choice, and just do a search for a relevant hashtag to the topic you want to write about. Browse what people are sharing and see if there is anything that stands out as a topic you want to write about.
You can view the trending hashtags on Twitter, but unfortunately, you can only customise this by location, rather than by topic. If you want to make this process a little more efficient, you’ll need to use some tools.
Ritetag can be used for free (there is a premium version) to monitor trending hashtags. You can enter topics and they’ll send you an email to alert if any related hashtags are beginning to trend. You can also use their tool to find out information about specific hashtags, such how many tweets there are per hour, what times of day people tweet the most and which countries are tweeting.
Similar to Ritetag, you can also use Hashtagify to monitor hashtags and set up alerts. It’s simply a process of searching for the hashtags that you want clicking on the ‘Activate Email Alerts’ button.
When looking for trending blog post ideas, keyword research tools can be a great source of inspiration. You can find out what your potential readers are searching for and tailor your content around that.
The Adwords Keyword Planner is still my go-to keyword research tool. It’s free, but you will need to sign up for an Adwords account if you want to use it. Google made some changes to the tool recently; if you aren’t spending enough with Adwords, you won’t get a specific value for search volume. Instead, you will get a search volume range. Whilst this is more ambiguous than a specific value, even the range data is useful for getting an idea of approximate search demand and for comparing terms.
The Keyword Planner also provides trends data. You’ll be able to see how search demand has changed for either a keyword or group of keywords over the past 12 months. You can use this to help you identify if a keyword or topic is gaining popularity.
In addition to the Adwords Keyword Planner, there are many other keyword research tools you can use. Here are just a few:
Analytics won’t provide as many keywords as it did years ago, due to Google withholding keyword data from organic search traffic. However, you may still find some interesting keywords in your analytics tool from other organic search sources, such as Bing. You can use Google Analytics for free if you aren’t already using another analytics tool.
Monitor your analytics to identify the keywords being used to find your site. You may start to notice similar queries popping up time and time again, particularly if those topics are beginning to trend. If you don’t have content that is directly relevant to these search terms, then now might be the time to create that.
The keywords people are using to find your website can be a useful source of ideas for content. Google Search Console’s Search Analytics allows you to view the keywords that your website has appeared in search results for and how many clicks those keywords have resulted in. Of course, the more clicks and impressions there are, the higher the demand is for that keyword.
You can click on individual queries and view clicks and impressions for those over time. Of course, how well you rank for them will affect these metrics, but you may still be able to spot trending terms. Regardless, if keywords have a high number of impressions, then you know that it is something people want more information on. You may find quite specific queries that can be great to base a blog post around, or they would work well as part of a larger post.
Each of these tools and techniques are capable enough to help you when you are stuck with a topic. Although using them together will allow you to dig up the precise information about any topic and how relevant it is to your niche and how trendy it is among the people.
You can research about certain topics that revolves around your business category or your customer niche through various tools listed in this blog post and then can come to a conclusion about what to write about in more detailed manner. So, this blog post answers your question of how to find topics for your blog?

As we entered new year, we tried every possible thing to change our online presence in a better way so that it would look good for a newly visiting prospect. No doubt, our websites appearance affects our prospects purchasing decisions. Where we have tried and tested so many things, why not give a fonts facelift to out website so that it will drop that much needed impact onto your site visitor.
Let’s talk about some possible revamps we can do to our site, my suggestion is to start with typography.
Before even starting any changes to your site, assess what you have currently and most importantly how things are going on in your niche industry. I’ll suggest to analyze some top notch competitors of your niche. Look at the way their site is performing depending on how they have arranged their fonts and typography.
In order to evaluate a website’s typography, ask yourself the following questions:
Are you aware of how your site’s current font selections came about? If your site uses the default fonts from your WordPress theme or they were chosen on a whim, that’s usually a good sign that they need to be changed. While they probably look good enough, they were not hand-selected to fit with your brand’s unique style. Consistency in design is key – from the images you use all the way down to the typography.
Alright, so now after a lot of research and commitment we’ve finally found the best suited fonts those are meshing well with our site and giving a fresh new attractive look to our website. But is it complete? or just a shorter version of what’s going to be launched later. In short, the question that should come into your mind is whether the fonts you’ve selected is complete or not?
If you’re unsure of whether or not you have a complete typeface that includes all letters, numbers, and symbols, go back to the source of the font. There should be a preview field where you can enter custom text. Insert the following lines of text to ensure that all essential characters are present:
Mac users, I’d suggest you to download Font Book. Once you’ve digged up the font of your interest, install it in Font Book to test for readability issues. You can use this to:
This also happens to be a great tool for storing your fonts and keeping them organized for the next time you want to give your typography a makeover.
There are some online free tools like Responsinator which makes it much easier to check for responsive compatibility easy. These same responsive checkers can also be used to review your site’s typography for mobile-friendliness.
The standard recommendation for cross-platform font sizing is 16 points or more. That may not be the case if you choose a highly stylized or tightly-kerned font, so be sure to verify that on one of these tools before committing.
You can also use this guide to popular font sizing to give you an idea of where to start with fonts facelift.
Revamping your site with the correct set of fonts and making the size ideal for reader isn’t the only thing to be done.
Nope, it’s also about finding the right color. If you haven’t experimented with this Material Design Palette yet, take a moment to do so now. You’ll see that regardless of which branding colors you select, the primary and secondary font color are always black or a shade of grey.
Web developers know all about how to make websites accessible. However, if you’re really looking to give your typography a universal-friendliness in this next iteration, pay closer attention to factors that may affect those who are visually impaired or color blind.
Start by running your website through Color Oracle. This tool will simulate how your website appears to those who are color blind.
You never know who may come to your website, so it’s important to consider these factors now while you’re taking the time to give your typography a facelift.
Font choice is a personal decision, much like everything else in web design. So while I cannot tell you which fonts to use, I still think it’s important to lay out the best practices to follow while doing your research, testing, and implementation of new ones.
Here are the basic rules to follow:
I hope these few fonts facelift tips and tricks will help you out in revamping your site to increase more visitors.

Structuring a page and it’s assets makes it properly machine-friendly, whatever that machine is. Add the kind of common sense techniques that allow users (including users with disabilities) and machines to get straight to meaningful content, and for sure you are moving towards make your site easily accessible and search engine friendly.
We all are familiar with the power of WordPress which allows a newbie or non technical person to design and develop their own web property. This platform is simple to set up, and provides a solid framework for the themes and plugins that will determine how your content and functionality will go on for any visitor.
If you want your site to be accessible to individuals with disabilities, you’ll find that basic WordPress has much that is needed to facilitate the development of an accessible website, and it is not hard to take that further through the addition of plugins and good technique.
Before we get started, there are two important factors to be aware of. First, implementing these four techniques alone will not make any website totally accessible for everybody to the extent of complying with all the necessary requirements but it will address the most common barriers to web access and deliver much greater accessibility.
Second, it’s important to understand that accessibility can only be achieved through the co-operation of design, development and best content authoring practices. A designer may design an accessible theme, a developer might add accessible functionality, but if a content author inserts a meaningful image without an alt tag, the full meaning of the web page will be inaccessible.
It is well known that the single greatest barrier to web accessibility is using alt text properly to describe images on a web page. If this single point was addressed by everyone who builds websites, it would eradicate the largest number of accessibility complaints. And that’s the reason why we felt the urge to develop an amazing plugin SEO Image Optimizer, which fills the gap of missing alt tags on the images.
The fundamental point to understand is that if you are going to put images on your site, it is essential that you label them correctly with alt text. In other words, every image you are putting online must have a meaning for the robot to list your image on the search engines.
The information in the alt tag allows users of screen readers (which read web pages aloud to users with visual disabilities), text only browsers and slow connections that won’t load images to understand the information conveyed by images.
If an image does not have meaning, for example it is used purely for decoration, there are two ways to deal with it. If you load it as a background image using CSS, screen readers will ignore it and the image does not require an alt tag (be careful, becuase this also applies to meaningful images: if you load it in background, the screen reader will ignore it). If an image is displayed using HTML but is purely decorative, then use the alt tag but leave it empty. That tells the screen reader that an image is present but has no meaning for the user and can be ignored which allows to make your site more accessible for a reader
When you put label on your images, use some descriptive text that will allow people who cannot see to understand what the meaning of the image is. This requires judgement: why the image has been here and what message does it convey, and what words will best convey that same meaning. Don’t get caught up in literal descriptions of every visual detail, convey the meaning.
A classic example is an image of a magnifying glass used as a button to start a search. The image has a meaning, so it should be described. Describing it as “a magnifying glass” does not help the user. What they need to know is that clicking on this button will start a search, so alt text of “click here to search” or even just “search” may be most appropriate.
Only images that serve a purpose must be labeled. Examples of these are as follows:
Images that are used as buttons
Images that are used as links
Images that are used for any other controls
Images that directly relate to the content
This technique applies to all websites, of course, not just WordPress sites. WordPress, however, makes it easier than most, firstly by allowing the content author to switch between Visual and HTML views, and secondly by providing a field for alt text whenever an image is inserted using Add Media functionality.
WordPress accessibility can be enhanced by using a variety of plugins. These plugins are easy to set up, and they will enable users with a wide range of disabilities to access the site. Here are some plugins I’ve found which will make your site easily accessible.
The Access Keys plugin allows access keys to be assigned to links and controls on your website. For instance, the home link may be assigned the access key combination alt+h and the search button may be assigned the alt+s key combination. Access keys, such as the examples provided, enable visually impaired users as well as those with mobility issues, to easily access what they want.
Easy Retweet is a plugin that will allow you to add accessible buttons to your page that facilitate sharing your content on Twitter. This way, if individuals with disabilities wish to share your pages with their friends, they can do so without any difficulty.
AstickyPostOrderER lets you choose the order in which your content is displayed. You can choose to display content from oldest to newest or in the reverse order.
The Hackadelic SEO Table of Contents plugin enables you to provide a table of contents for either your posts or your pages. This will make your content easy to find.
WP-Polls permits individuals with disabilities to participate in any polls you may have on your site
New plugins are being developed all the time. Use the WordPress dashboard functionality to search for more. Try different plugins and ask your users with disabilities to give you feedback
When using any plugins, make sure the plugins use are compatible with your chosen theme, as well as with one another. If your plugins are not compatible with your theme, they will either not work or will cause more problems for disabled users who try to browse your site. If your plugins are not compatible with one another, your site can be rendered unusable or content may be displayed incorrectly.
When you design pages, it is vital to structure the content using headings in the correct order:
<h3> and so on. When you structure the content using headings, people using screen readers can get a summary of what the pages are about and navigate them more easily. Screen reader users can access the sections of content that they want by pressing the letter “H” to go forward and “shift+H” to go backwards.
You can label your content using headings one through six to make your site easily accessible. Check how your theme uses headings (for example, your theme may or may not apply
<h1> to the site title and that site title may or may not appear on every webpage. Either way, make sure the first heading used is
<h1> and the following headings (page title, page sub-sections, paragraph headings) descend in order through to
<h6>, where appropriate.
There is some flexibility about the ordering, but the most sensible option is to keep headings in numerical order and really don’t mix them up as it will create an hazardous situation both for user and a search engine (Do no mix them like this –>
Finally, you need to have navigation links in your site design. These navigation links will allow users with disabilities to skip past the navigation bar or other menus and search boxes and jump to certain places on the page by clicking these links. Or, the user can quickly jump to desired sections on the site. These links need to appear wherever it is necessary for users to skip to meaningful content. Examples of what these links may say are:
Skip to Main Content
Jump to Navigation Bar
Jump to Search
Some WordPress themes may already provide such links. If this is the case, you will need to check to these links to see if you have to add any of your own. Other themes, however, will not provide navigation links. Thus, you will need to add these links yourself.
I’ll repeat what I’ve said earlier that none of these steps guarantee you 100% accessible website but yes it will boost your site’s accessibility for every visitor visiting your site and your site is more accessible then 90% of the WordPress websites out there.
Visitors with disabilities will be able to navigate through your site just like other visitors. Since these visitors also include search robots, you should be assured of one thing that making your site accessible will also benefit your business and help you rank on top on the search engines ultimately resulting in more profit out of your business.
I hope this blog post was useful for you and you are taking some key elements from here that you’ll
