Below is a useful guide on some of the most common mistakes made in website designs. If your Pattaya business has anyone of these listed problems, then your business is losing out to other Pattaya companies. Contact PattayaMedia.com today to find out how we can help you fix your broken website.
It’s not mobile friendly
You will be surprised by the amount of Pattaya business owners who have outdated websites that do not open or work on a mobile device. This is a serious mistake as your website will have difficulty with viewing for those opening the site on a mobile device. Furthermore, your site will be punished and penalised as a result by almost all the search engines. You have to ask yourself “why would a search engine list a non-mobile friendly website with a high rank if the site is not mobile friendly?”.
So make sure your website has a mobile version that automatically opens when viewed on a mobile or tablet device. This is vital for the success of your Pattaya business.
Home page has images and no text
When you perform a search at for example google.com, then you type in the text of the product or service you are searching for and then click submit. If that text has been written on a web page then the chances are your Pattaya business will be listed in the search results. So if you have a home page of images and no text, then you will have great difficulty getting your website ranked for important search terms that your clients will use to find your business.
Pages lack well written content
Content is King – you must not forget this. The information and text you write on your pages will determine in many ways how your site is ranked in the search engines. You must write clearly and precisely about the products you sell or the services you provide. For more information on this, please read our SEO guide on web page content.
Customers can’t navigate pages with ease
This doesn’t need much explaining. Your website menu that contains the links to the pages on your site needs to be found and seen at all times with ease.
Pages load too slow
You have a 10 second window when it comes to web page speed. If a potential customer visits your site and the page either doesn’t load or loads slowly, then they are going to hit the back button and go searching or shopping at a rival website. Make sure your website is optimised for speed and fast loading times.

Old and outdated design
If your website has an old or outdated design then your clients will think you don’t run a professional business. Furthermore, as technology changes and browsers and mobiles are updated, then the code that was used to build your website may not work properly on a PC browser or mobile the way it used to. Technology changes literally every single day. You must change your business website at least once or twice every 1 to 2 years.
It’s annoying and cluttered
Far too many Thai web designers create awful website designs that are annoying and cluttered beyond belief. Your site must be clean and clear and allow for your website visitors to find what they are searching for.
Pages don’t contain meta descriptions
