Therefore many of the websites provide additional space on their webpage to another website to present some of their data for promotional purposes. But overuse of anything is always harmful, and some of the websites overdo the advertisement section and the information presented by the website is hidden and hard to find. The sole reason behind this is to earn more and more money, but the website is worth only when it has visitors and customers do not want to visit the website that has lot many of advertisement and less of the information to display.
5. Refraining updates:
The website is only useful when it is updated regularly. But many web designers think that their work is finished after uploading the website over the internet. But the major league starts after uploading the websites as all the feedbacks helps the person to learn and grow.
