I’m going to hopscotch across a couple rings of Designer Hell and pop into ring #8 – click bait websites or as Dante would label them – fraudsters. You’ve likely landed on one of these dreaded sites and thought “WTF” and tried to zoom away at top speed. These are pages that are so loaded down with ads and wonky scripts that your browser grinds to a halt or crashes, leaving you whimpering in some corner screaming "make it stop ... make it stop". Nothing says good web design like leaving your reader in a fetal position.
And all too often the promised content just doesn’t exist. The web designer created a teaser ad loaded with fake images to draw you in. That’s pretty much a good description of bait and switch. Fraud by any other name is still fraud.Add a comment
