Things which internet users doesn’t like in websites

If your potential customer is visiting your website, you have a very short time to impress the customer with your services or products. If your website looks clumsy, and even yourself getting lost in it often, its time to think how everything looks from user point of view. Only clean and clear provided content will help the user to have a nice browsing experience and they might will buy your product or services.

Here is the short list of the most annoying things for the users:

1. Your website loads very slow

When the website is overloaded with information, its hard to process all the data quickly. Almost every second user of the internet expects that website will load fully in around 2 seconds, four out of ten websites will be closed by the user after 3 seconds of waiting. So, if your website loading time is big, it can become for you a loop on your neck. Luckily, there is a lot of solutions which can help you increase website loading speed. For example, changing hosting providers or code and images optimisation.

2. Your website is not mobile-friendly

If your website was developed 10 years ago, we are hundred percent sure that it’s not mobile responsive. Do you know that more than 60% of internet users browsing online with smart phones? If your website is not mobile friendly, you are losing your potential customers, because for them its not going to be easy to reach content in outdated website. The worst thing if your website is not mobile responsive, that you not going to be listed on Google search engine, in this case you just not going to reach your potential customer.

3. Your website is overloaded with ads and pop up windows

Sometimes pop up windows can provide additional effect for the customers. For example, before closing your website tab in the browser, pop up will show up with an instant deal offer. But in most of the cases its very annoying for the customers. Just think that somewhere online will be a similar website, which will offer the similar products without annoying ads or pop up windows. They might will steal your potential customer.
