What Do You Like In A Website?
« on: Tue Jan 29, 2008 - 13:15:14 »
What makes you go to a particular website over and over again?  What turns you off when going to a website and never return?  I am trying to compile some information.

Thanks for the feedback.

Music in the background is a big turnoff for me (why I hate visiting MySpace, btw).

I like a website with a lot of information about the services, staff and activities but still easy to find and not hidden in some back page link that takes forever to find.

I HATE .gif icons that are scattered everywhere.  Too much movement.  But Flash is okay if it looks nice.

I agree with the music thing that JMG said.

I don't like it when stuff is not updated...i.e. calendar still on December in January.

OH! One more thing.

If you use COMIC SANS on your website, I will never visit again.  It looks unprofessional.

What if it is a comic book website?

There are actual comic book fonts that look way cooler.  Comic sans isn't a comic book font.

For example:
www.comicbookfonts.com
www.blambot.com

I like a website that is easy to navigate. If I have to jump through hoops to find things I won't go back.

I like shoutboxes and mini forums. But i don't like it when its all fancy its gets difficult to read and see were you were at. I like basic websites like this one!

God bless,

Although not all sites I frequent would completely qualify, I most like those that are Bobby-approved.  That means they're fully accessible to blind and other disabled people.
