I see it, and occasionally, I cringe.
Loud music is blaring in the background, preventing any and all pictures from loading properly. One doosie had a rainbow of colored text, some almost unreadable against their chosen background color. Another had link button after link button, never seeming to land on the actual page with the information.
I prefer websites with a clean, crisp presentation. The links and text should be large enough to read with ease.
A good example is http://www.rachelvincent.com/books.html
Her page is clean of clutter. The text is easy to read and the color doesn’t compete with that of the background. Each picture is clearly labeled. Each link actually works.
