Now that you’ve learned the benefits of parallax design, let’s talk about the downsides. The majority of parallax websites only have a single long page, which can damage a site’s SEO and load speed. These are the cons of parallax-scrollable websites:

  • SEO can be damaged
  • Websites with a single page can only have:
    • 1 meta
    • 1 header tag
    • 1 URL
  • Too many images can cause slow load times

Load times are annoying

  • Frustrated visitors will simply leave the page because of the slow speed
  • Not responsive
  • Not compatible with most mobile devices
