Moreover, white space provides a feeling of overall neatness, as well as spaciousness to your site.

  3. Avoid Plug-Ins and Multimedia: Using unnecessary plug-ins and multimedia can lessen the number of visitors. Using such types of programs can make increase the downloading time of your web pages which would discourage users and tempt them to go to other similar websites with better relevant information and content.
