5 Customary Pitfalls In Web Application Development Most Developers Make

This article attempts to explore the most usual mistakes that web developers make while developing any application.

In no time, web applications development has become a predominant part of the business world. But, what’s making it still difficult for many businesses to get themselves a strong, vivid business application. It is perhaps because of inadequate services or inept skills of the developers. Either they are still making mistakes or are applying outdated technologies that lead to the development of substandard applications. Even the best of web developers make mistakes and so is the reason for penning down this article. It is to make you and other businesses of the major pitfalls that happen in web application development.  



No authorisation

This mistake directly hampers the security of the website or application. Many developers still tend to make authentication without any authorisation and do not realise the repercussions it may have on the site’s security. While authentication implies approving a person’s access on providing personal credentials, authorisation is confirming what particular resource the access is given into. While both are needed for tight security, treating them separately or considering only the authentication is a severe mistake.

No mobile presence

A considerable number of users tend to open their website via the mobile browsers because that is more convenient, easily accessible than the desktops. However, many developers are still not wary of the need to provide mobile-friendly experience while making a website or application. This is a key reason for the deterioration in traffic and search engine presence.

Ignoring SEO aspects

Many web developers just built an application to make it pleasing to the eyes of the visitors but actually forget about the key thing that is needed to drive them to the app. Yes, the SEO aspects! They tend to overrule that while developing while some pertinent tactics to boost the SEO game of the site are HI tags (with keywords), use of size optimised images and media files, avoiding many popups, infinite scroll, lesser content and so forth.



No clear CTA (Call-to-Action)

The most significant aspect of the web apps, is the Call-To-Action, as it directs the visitors what to do, where to click or how to achieve what they want in the application’s page. While it is the right feature to guide visitors on their next step, missing call-to-action button is a reason for them to abandon or bounce away. Not only CTAs should be placed appropriately, but it should be plain language to let visitors understand. Some strongly impacting CTAs to use must are Buy Now, Contact Us, Get Started, Sign Up Now.

Absence of Social Media integration

With increasing proliferation of mass media like Facebook, Twitter, businesses started using them for their own benefit. They are looking for nurturing the relationships with customers openly on different social media platforms. However, for that, they need social media presence, own unique pages there through which they can interact with customers directly. So, developers failing to integrate social media buttons on the website or app did not give scopes to the social media users to peek into the site.

Describing these points is an attempt to make you as well as other businesses aware of the grave mistakes the next time you consign the task of developing your web application to a company.
