Spooky sound effects. L-o-o-ong pages where you can spend several minutes scrolling down before reaching bottom. Hundreds of postage stamp-sized images. Mysterious moving balls that users must click on to gain any information.
If your website’s homepage has one or more of the above…well, it’s not a good sign. In case you’re unclear on this point, TechRepublic  has created a slide show of what it considers the 10 worst web design tragedies, and tragic they are. They include some websites from folks who really ought to know better, such as congressional candidate George Hutchins  and Harry Potter author J. K. Rowling , who certainly could have afforded a site with easier navigation. The pages themselves are crammed with clutter–but perhaps they’re meant to appeal to teenagers whose rooms look much the same.
See ‘em and weep at TechRepublic .
