Avoid this common mistakes when building a websites
/ When building a website, there are a lot of things that you need to think about. A developer or a web designer or a web developer should know this and must avoid it at all costs. If not check carefully, your work will be going to fail.
As a developer, we should be careful, especially when developing something. And avoid some bad habits so that our project will grow smoothly. So what are the things that needed to be avoided?
Not Creating a Plan ✍️
Creating a plan is the most important part when creating a website. You should plan the themes, the layout, the pages, the content of each page, etc. This also includes planning website performance, etc. You also need to plan what server to use, and what frameworks to use. Is it Server Side Rendering or Single Page Application?
Here is a sample thing that you need to plan:
Identify your website goals
Identify your target audience
what framework to use
hosting/or own server
Having a Server that is slow 🌐
The server is the most crucial or important. If you have a slow server, expect a low-performance website. You should upgrade, and make customers stay. According to research users, most of the time close the tab once the page does not load within 4 to 6 seconds. So keep that in mind.
Check your hosting, and the plan you got. And make sure you have the right specs for your server. Or maybe check your databases, or code. There might be a bug that is causing the performance to fluctuate.
Not Responsive Website 📱
If you're creating a website, you should always think about responsiveness. Nowadays people switch devices all the time, from mobile phones to tablets, and desktops. Users tend to close the tab when a website does not display so well on the device. So make sure to make your website responsive, to be available to different devices. There are a lot of tutorials and articles on how to make your website responsive, just search the web.
Putting your wants before the clients needs 🤝
This is when you are creating a website for a client. As a developer, you should listen to what your client needs, what his/her business flow, and how it should work. Do communicate with your client whenever there are things that need fixing or adding the feature. Communication is the key.
Not thinking about SEO 💻
If your single-page application is for private use, you can skip this part. But if you're creating a website for public consumption like a blog site, or news site. Don't forget about SEO. SEO stands for Search Engine Optimization, and it is a way to improve the traffic of your web pages from search engines.
Not doing anything 😒
Yup, you should know what that means. You probably know that nothing comes up doing nothing. Your cup will always be empty if you don't put water it. Your wallet will be empty if you don't work. Your canvas will be plain white if you don't paint. If you have a task, do it.
So that's it, those are the common mistakes. There are a lot of mistakes that we will encounter in our journey, but avoiding this is your starting point. Good luck! Bookmark my website for more content 🤗
