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.

Owner Terms – An Example of Bad Web Design for February 10, 2015

The Daily Sucker - an example of bad web design

Submitter’s comments: Ownerterms.com is part of a ring of real estate web sites, all with similar designs and all with the same problems. The main page is too wide for my Macbook’s 1280×800 screen. Add the garish colors and oversized text, and you have a mess. Oh, and don’t get me started on the messy, outdated code.

Vincent Flanders’ comments: Obviously, if it doesn’t fit in our submitter’s 1280×800 screen, it isn’t going to fit in my 1200×1700 screen. The good news is you can read the text. The bad news is a couple of weeks ago, Google sent out emails to websites that weren’t mobile friendly and on their PageSpeed insights page they said this page “…may not pass Google’s Mobile-Friendly Test. Oh, the home page’s mobile score was 44/100 and the desktop score was 67/100. See the screenshot below for how the page shows up on mobile devices.Click the image to see the site as Google sees it.

This site isn't mobile friendly

I’m going to give you a warning you need to heed: If you don’t fix your websites to be mobile friendly in 2015, Google will come down HARD on your site’s search engine rankings.
