The Daily Sucker - Current examples of bad web design

The Daily Sucker

Sites featured in articles like Worst Websites of 2010 often are redesigned, which explains why some sites mentioned in my articles don't match their current look. The Daily Sucker features current examples of bad web design which haven't been fixed (yet).

If you see a site that you think sucks, email the URL to me. No personal pages (personal pages are supposed to reflect the individual's personality and artistic freedom) or web site designers (it would look like a conflict of interest), or others of their ilk.

If I think there's some merit to your selection, I may post it along with some commentary. If you know of a site that qualifies, let me know.

The Daily Sucker - an example of bad web design

Submitter’s comments: I was looking for a saw for a weekend project when I stumbled on the website of a local lumber store. First thing that caught my attention was the animated background behind a couple images on the home page. The overall design looks like something from the ’90s. The home page is nothing but a list of different product categories arranged in a table, with more lists of brands they carry for each category. I thought clicking on a brand name would show products they sell, but it just links to the manufacturer’s website. When I finally noticed a link to actually shop it took me to another website that listed more product categories, which was even harder to read. Clicking a product category there reveals another page with a list of more product categories, and is even harder to read. I just bought the saw at a local branch of a large chain store.

Vincent Flanders’ comments: I think that covers it. If visitors can’t find what they need, they will leave.
