What Do You Hate Most About Websites?
from the popups,-apparently dept
A new study looks at the biggest complaints from web surfers about certain sites and comes out with very few surprises at the top of the list: popup ads, sites that require registration and sites that require you to install some software before you can view them. In other words, intrusive and annoying stuff that gets in the way of the visitors viewing whatever content they came to view. This should be quite obvious, but apparently too many sites still haven't figured it out. It's also interesting to note, that many of these problems are being solved by third parties. Popup blockers are pretty standard and Bugmenot handles the registration issue on most sites. Still, the users who are impacted by these things say it makes them much less likely to ever return to the sites in question.
