Worst Web Mistakes Annual Report

We wait for it every year. Well, the waiting is over. It’s time for the Top 10 Web Design Mistakes of 2005 by Useit’s Jacob Nielsen. If you want to know what you are doing wrong, Nielsen is the man with the big bat to boot your buns in web design.

Want to know his worst of the worst web mistakes for this year, as interpreted by me?

This year’s list of top problems clearly proves the need to get back to Web design basics. There’s much talk about new fancy “Web 2.0” features on the Internet industry’s mailing lists and websites, as well as at conferences.

* text they can read;
* content that answers their questions;
* navigation and search that help them find what they want;
* short and simple forms (streamlined registration, checkout, and other workflow); and
* no bugs, typos, or corrupted data; no linkrot; no outdated content.
