What makes a terrible website you may ask? Believe it or not there are many people that don’t know the difference between a bad website and a good website design. Ironically many web designers themselves have created the worst looking websites ever! Here is my top 10 list of the worst website designs for 2013.
1. The Worlds Worst Website Ever
This one takes my numero uno pick for the Worst Website Design of 2013. Even though this website was made intentionally as a bad web design example it illustrates what not to do when designing a website such as animated gifs, animated marquees, and a site elements that offer no real user experience.
2. The Afterlife
This website should be the worst website design of 2013 however it looks like this ghastly website design has no meaning whatsoever! This website gets my number two vote for the worst website of 2013 because this ugly website looks like someone was on bad drugs when this site was created.
3. Evangel Cathedral
This website gets my vote for the third worst website design of 2013 for one reason alone. Flash. Flash websites are not compatible with many mobile and tablet devices. In addition this website starts playing music onload then has a very small link to turn off the sound. The design and layout is much better than the previous winners but the content structure is so busy it makes it difficult to navigate.
This is one of the worst websites that has this world has ever seen. In addition this website has been on the top ten list of the worst websites ever built for over ten years in a row! I don’t think there is anything to explain why this is the 4th worst website in the world.
5. Ron Oslund’s Home Page
Back in 1995 this was considered a state of the art website. Need I say more?
6. Constellation Seven
This eyesore get the number 6 spot for worst website design of 2013 for using one of the most awful color combinations and patterns that make reading the content of this website a real headache. Be careful this website may cause you to have a seizure.
7. Jamil Lin Blog
The Jamil Lin blog get’s my vote for the 7th worst website design in the world. This website uses neutral colors with clashing colors thus making the site content difficult to navigate and read. For a website about the art of Feng Shui, this website does not reflect it.
8. Mr. Bottles
Mr. Bottles gets the number 8 spot for bad web design. This website’s colors and graphics clash so bad that it makes it difficult to read and navigate.
9. Designs 23
This website gets my number 9 vote for the worst website of 2013 because it is obvious that this company is using templates from Template Monster and is selling them as custom web design. The next reason why this website is added to this list is that this website is a template monster template that does not look like it’s intended format.
10. Arcata Web Design
And the final vote for worst website design in the world goes to Arcata Web Design. The primary reason why this website gets the number ten spot for worst website of 2013 is due to the fact this website looks flat out terrible and horrendous.
