Pure Water

Example of a bad website: Pure Water

White space is not a crime, it often makes a website seem 'cleaner.'  In this case, the white space is due to lack of content and proper sizing.  If you watch So You Think You Can Dance - when Nigel Lythgoe tells you to 'use the whole stage' he may have some insight into websites as well.

These days, there's no excuse for an unsecure website, a Home Page button, or blurry photos.

The BBB also requires you to link to your profile page on their site if you're going to use their logo, which is not happening here.

Houston Crating

Example of a bad website: Houston Crating

Unsecure and plain, the weirdest thing about this website is that none of the navigation choices nor Services pages exist.  Well, the url changes to have an extension titled what you chose, but the page content doesn't change.

There's not much to say because there's not much to see.

Hippo Day Care

Example of a bad website: Hippo Day Care

You can't see this by looking at the small picture to the left, but this website's been sitting out there, unfinished, since 2010.  That's nine years.  Clearly, someone's paying to keep it online - but why? 

The text is all lorem ipsum, nothing has been filled in at all.  

When your business is providing (supposedly) daycare to hippos, maybe you're too busy for silly tasks like completing a website.  That's why you hire professionals!

Example of a bad website: orangetaxispringfield

You'll need to click on the thumbnail to view the entire glorious mess that is this transportation service's website.  It's bad.  

An incredible array of font styles, sizes and colors.  A lack of design so egregious, it may be a 'design' all its own.  A very long landing page, with elements no one would expect.  Blurry photos, ineptly 'trimmed' and stock photos that accompany the Happy Customers "testimonials."

Let us all hope they hire drivers much better at their job than whoever took on the task of web 'designer.'
