When you create a website you want it to be eye catching, after all you need to get people to notice it and want to look further but is there such a thing as too much? Well the simple answer to this is yes. Not only do certain websites go over the top when it comes to the colours they use, but information is all packed into one page, and navigation is complicated. 

One website alone has put together a list of the worst websites from the past few years and the websites it advertises are defiantly rubbish to say the least. What is the name of this website you ask? Well the answer to that would be Web Pages That Suck. Rather suitable when you look at its contents.

The following websites are some examples of where people go so wrong when it comes to getting people’s attention.

  1. HavenWorks on first look you are taken in by all the writing and you can see it is just too much, it is only by closer inspection that you notice that it has something to do with politics. With no real navigation and the fact that the page is too overcrowded just puts you off looking further. You don’t get the impression that you are going to find the information you are looking for.
  2. Yvette’s is a website for bridal wear and general formal wear. The websites front page uses too many colours, and although it can be argued that the page is eye catching it is also off putting. Navigation is all over the place and it looks as though it was created by a child rather that someone with a serious business.
  3. Bow Wow Books. What is this all about. I have looked at this website several times now and I am none of the wiser. What is it advertising? Is it advertising? I honestly don’t have a clue. Navigation is just picture of a dog doing silly things. It fails to explain much. If the creators are trying to sell something, I doubt they are doing a very good job!
