Website Fails! (Let's Not)

Content and Copy

  • We don't know what content is necessary or appropriate for our audience.
  • Our content is not organized to meet our visitors' needs, or broken down into logical categories.
  • The content is not engaging, or relevant, or accurate.
  • We don't identify non-HTML documents like PDFs.
  • Our site's content is not written for the web, but for print media (or other media) and we just transferred it to the web.
  • Our pages are too long. We forget that people skim.
  • Some of our site's content - graphics and/or text - is considered offensive.
  • We didn't use an editor (or several people) to proofread spelling, grammar, capitalization and content.
  • We haven't checked to see we've eliminated all "Lorem ipsum" text or other placeholder text and graphics from site, especially from document titles.
  • Our website has a mission statement or a link to a mission statement on the front page; non-profit's are exempt.
  • Our website has sections that are under construction and the public can access them.
  • Our website doesn't have a privacy policy or legal statement page.
  • Our website's content came from a Microsoft Word, Powerpoint, etc., document and then converted to HTML. This is very bad as it is literally filled with bad coding.
  • Our site has outdated calendar information.

  • "250 different set of buttons to put together image wise, ecommerce headaches, weekly updates, expanding content, and what seemed like a million questions for Annie!
