Stone-age website features

  • Greeting page or splash page or flash intros
  • Flash site (Google cannot see flash sites!)
  • Intimidating, overwhelming, lengthy text that doesn’t stand out and catch your eye.  Without clear space to provide a sense of visual priority, visitors have no idea where to look first, decide not to read such lengthy text and immediately leave your site!
  • Images are too small
  • Photo gallery unattractive and takes multiple clicks to view the next photo – not fun to navigate
  • Photos load too slowly
  • Large image fillers (instead of getting to the point)
  • Photo carousel
  • Stock Photos
  • Animated GIFs everywhere
  • 3D fonts as GIFs
  • Autoplay Videos
  • Small video playback areas
  • Auto-playing MIDI music
  • Automated Popups
  • Marquee, scrolling tickers, frames
  • ‘Hello World’ Blog Post
  • Sidebars
  • Search bar
  • Tag cloud
  • Reloading Pages
  • m.dot sites for mobile, instead of using Responsive Design technology
  • Not mobile-optimized. Doesn’t scale to smaller screen widths such as tablets and smart phones (iPad, iPhone, Android)
  • Vertical page orientation with wide empty margins – doesn’t take advantage of today’s wide-screen machines
  • Non-intuitive
  • Hit counter
  • Guest book
  • Intense backgrounds
  • Clip art
  • Tables
  • Buttons made of images instead of scalable, flexible technology
  • Requires visitors to install archaic media playback technologies such as a flash player.
  • Navigation options are confusing.  It’s not clear how to get around the site. Navigation should be helpful and make sense.
  • Site runs too slow. Visitors are losing patience with the site.​
  • Is ranked very low in Google search results, compared with your competition.
  • You have no idea whether your are getting any visitors to your site
  • Doesn’t have features you see on other more modern websites.
  • It doesn’t enable you to make your own content changes: you have to go to your web developer for each and every change of content you want on your site.​
