Web designing is a broad spectrum that covers so many areas like graphic design, interface design, user experience web design, usability, search engine optimization, web development and many more. Web designing has started from 1989, whilst working at CERN Tim Berners-Lee proposed to create a global hypertext project, which later became known as the World Wide Web. After that with the technological evolution, it has significant and modern changes according to usability and accessibility of the people.
Although there is a great evolution in the industry of web designing and development,
but still there are some common errors that designers keep repeating. These errors should be eliminated to get maximum outputs. For this keep in mind the main objective of web designing and development:

clearunderstanding where to click and where the destination is

It’s the main error that should be
focused by the designers while designing a website. According to studies following errors come under lack of clarity;

Most of the designers place content in places that users aren’t familiar, like unsuitable category names that don’t match the anticipated content.
Ambiguity in navigations leads your
user switch to another where content can easily be sorted out.
•Hidden Fees and Prices
The users want to know about everything they’ll have to pay for up front, at the start of a transaction. This refers to charges, payment fees
and expediency fees. From a pure design outlook, it’s a massive mistake that causes a loss of customers and businesses.
