The designer should avoid outdated like horizontal scrolling and etc. Google Analytics provides you information about the user monitor resolution details.

Too many & big size images on a web page will reduce the speed. So, The website must use whatever Images needed to capture the user’s attention. Images should explain or represent a specific purpose to the user.
7. Cluttered Pages, More Whitespace.
Most website designers forget about the importance of white space. They are so submerged in their own design creativity that they forget that it’s not about them. Thus, they try to occupy or fill the space of a single page as much as they can. This results in a cluttered and unreadable page.
8. Presenting too many advertisements
Publishing too many ads on the website really sucks. You might have observed news or CMS websites displaying too many ads. The designer should give space for limited Ads. Too many Ads might decrease the site loading speed that eventually affects the SERP of the website.
Keep it simple, stupid (K.I.S.S). That’s the bottom line. If it’s simple, it’s usable. All in all, great websites keep it simple and usable. Do your homework and it comes easily and naturally.
