Clean Sites vs. Messy Sites
A lot of people think that to have a good site it has to have 400,000,000 links and options all over the place. The only thing this does is confuse the user. I prefer to have a nice clean design, with very easy navigation. If you do have 1,000 navigation buttons you might want to add a drop down menu or something similar with more options. A lot of websites trying to be the best just confuse the user and lose visitors. It’s always good to start a site as clean and as uncluttered as possible. You don’t want your site to look like a parked page.
This is where the K.I.S.S. (Keep it Simple Stupid) concept should be used. Too many webmasters and designers try to over complicate things. If you keep it simple even the most novice internet users should be able to use your sites with no problems.
