    And some small addition from my side

    1. Don't hold your visitors on the introduction
    2. Don't advertise within the content, you can lose visitors
    3. Don’t make obscure links
    4. Don’t use pop-ups
    5. And one of the most important: thoroughly check your website for spelling and grammatical errors

    1. do not use audio
    2. if you need audio, do not have it set to auto play
    3. do not change the current browser window size, people don't like it
    4. Use harmonious colouring schemes that are easy on the eye, if you need to use high contrast for your visitors who are partially sighted, use a recognized colour scheme.
    5. Be screen reader friendly and set your title and tabindex tags.
    6. don't use javascript to generate a site page dynamically, it makes accessibility an issue
    7. if you need to use cookies then give the user the option to accept or decline them.
    8. Avoid using JQuery and Google Analytics
    9. don't have a "Click this link to like our site" message, people are visiting to see if they like your site.
    10. if in doubt, don't do it, whatever it is you are thinking about...
    Yes, I know I'm about as subtle as being hit by a bus..(\\.\ Aug08)
    Yep... I say it like I see it, even if it is like a baseball bat in the nutz... (\\.\ Aug08)
    I want to leave this world the same way I came into it, Screaming, Incontinent & No memory!
    I laughed that hard I burst my colostomy bag... (\\.\ May03)
    Life for some is like a car accident... Mine is like a motorway pile up...
