However, i won’t be revealing all of them but will surely uncover some of the common ones in this piece of writing. So, here are some common myths associated with website designing.

1. First common myth associated with website designing is that most of the people believe that using so many different colors would make the website eye catching yet attractive at the same time as well.

If your website is targeting the children then this might prove to be a wise move but if it is for professional purpose then avoid committing such kind of blunders. Keep it fairly simple, make use of limited colors so that your web page can appear as much professional as possible.

2. Next important might associated with website designing is that duplication of content won’t do any harm to your web page. Well, if you agree with this statement then i must advise you to never design a website. I am very sorry to say but i have to because no website design can survive among search engines on which duplicate content is posted. The best sources to drive traffic towards the website are search engines and if your website is not recognized by the search engines then there is no possibility that your website would survive for an extensive period of time over World Wide Web. So always post new, updated and relevant content over your web page.

3. Making use of flash is mandatory is the next common myth associated with website designing. Well, there is no harm in using flash over your website but there is no rule that you must use flash over your website to make it more appealing to the visitor. Excessive use of flash over your website can make it work improperly as flash based content will take ample amount of time for loading up appropriately. So, it is advisable here that you must limit the use of flash based content over your website in order to remain on the safe side.

Importance of Having a Distinguished Website Design

With every passing day, there are simply tons and tons of website introduced over World Wide Web for different purposes. Some are introduced for sharing some personal experience, some are for fun purposes while some are for pure business or professional purposes. However, no matter for what purpose a website is introduced, importance of having distinguished website design can be overlooked by any means. There are lot of aspects on the basis of which it is important that a website design must be different from the other existing website designs.

A unique website design differentiate one website from another. If both website bears similar website design then visitors will surely find difficulties in differentiating them from each other. Well, take my words, if the design is similar to any of the existing design then you would lose ample amount of traffic within no time at all just because of the same website design. You might not agree with me here, but believe me, this is not a myth, this is a reality. No one would love to spend time over a place which is similar to some existing place and you might agree with me here. So, in order to ensure that you retain your visitors for an extensive period of time, you come up with a unique or distinguished website design.

Search engine never like to list those websites which are copied or are similar to the existing ones. These days, search engines are the most reliable source of diverting traffic towards the website and if your website doesn’t get listed among the search engines then i am afraid to say that the journey of your website over World Wide Web would be very short.

Sometimes, legal actions can be taken against duplicate website designs as well. If a design is copied without the permission of the creator or the real owner of the design then you might confront some legal actions.

So, to avoid all the above mentioned things, it is better to come up with a distinguished website design rather making use of an existing one. Your website design creates an impression in the mind of the visitors regarding your relevancy and if they find that your website design is copied then they will surely leave your website within no time at all and will never come back again as well.
