Web design requires the combination of a number of skills. The most important are – graphic design, coding, search optimization. A beautiful site that is badly coded and optimized is no use to anyone. Although no one wants to visit rubbish looking sites, no one will even find the site without some good SEO!
A good website needs good design and great content. Get the best design you can – if it looks good, people will want to come back. However, don’t get so caught up in the design that there’s no real content. Your content needs to be well written and interesting. Make sure you use good grammar and run spell check to weed out any errors.

1. Flash intro pages
2. Too many flashing images
