Top Ten Mistakes revisited three years later (02 May 1999)
My article from May 1996, Top Ten Mistakes in Web Design is still surprisingly relevant today, three years later. The article has become a minor Web classic with about 400,000 page views so far. It is still read 17,000 times per month.
Even discounting the possibility that some people have read the article more than once, a readership of 400,000 means that the "top ten mistakes" have been read by less than 10% of the people responsible for the world's five million websites. So most of these mistakes are still being made and I still recommend that new Web designers read my old article.
