5) Still Under Construction. There is no need to put an "under construction" sign. Every single web site out there is under construction. You are also sending visitor impression that you are not ready for their sale yet…this is very much wrong signal to send.
6) You Are Visitor Number 123. Hit counters on your page are unprofessional. You don't want anyone knowing they are only 123rd person visiting that page. It makes you look small and unpopular, again not a good signal to send out.
7) Multi Award Winning Site? Forget about small unknown web site awards. There are soooo many on offer now that it is meaningless…who cares! If it is a well known, prestigious award, or if it matters to your target audience, then go for it. Otherwise don't waste bandwidth sticking some logo up there.
