Top of the Pops website gaffs

Hey, Pop Pickers, there’s a lot that goes into conceiving, designing, building and launching a website; a lot can go wrong and there are a few no-nos. Fashions change, and if a website has been up for a while certain things that were once fine and dandy may now be damaging to people’s nerves and your business. Alright? Stay bright!

Once a site becomes established, it can become neglected, dysfunctional, outdated, ineffective and a bit raggy at the seams. It could be containing many features of a bad website.

We run down thirty things that can mar any website. Before you read them, it’s more fun to read it out loud after you’ve clicked the Pick of the Pops video! You’ll need the media volume turned up. Answers on a postcard please for anyone who knows what the image on the blog main page has to do with this, and for those of us under 40, here’s a little background info: Pick of the Pops).
