Does this situation feel familiar? — Your web designer reckons your site is outdated. It makes you look amateurish. If we’re being honest, we might even say it’s downright ugly and you should be ashamed of attaching it to your brand.
As web designers or developers we often have a tendency to fall back on text to convey a message or instructions to an end user. Our thought process is that if we provide the necessary steps as written text, how can anyone mess it up? As useful as text can be, the approach is inherently flawed as text is often ignored or at best scanned, and inference or expected behaviour prove to be a more powerful force. Even if your process is straightforward, text becomes useless if the actions on the page infer something that is counter to it.

In many cases, these are treated as an afterthought. I rarely come across a website that has decent pagination, and it always makes me wonder why so few manage to get it right. After all, I'd say that pagination is pretty easy to get right.
Face it: Google runs your life. The search giant turned web ecosystem owns your email, calendar, and even your voicemails. Your most important data lives on Google's servers. What you may not realize is that, despite the quality of Google's products, someone else is doing it better—and placing all your eggs in Google's basket isn't necessarily the best thing.
