    These are some of the advantage of web designing:
    • Easier to Navigate
    • Simple Designs Load Faster
    • Content is More “Scannable”
    • Simple Sites are Quicker to Design and Build
    • Simple Code is Easier to Debug
    • Smaller File Sizes Mean Less Server Space

    How simple is simple? "Being simple" is very much different in every person.

    It is better if you wrote the website category too e.g

    personnel website
    blog
    forum
    shopping website
    news website
    article directory
    and making simple varies for type to type.......

    its good to have simple site when it don't need to be complex where users can exactly tell what the site is all about.
    however, if you have a gaming site, it needs to have heavy graphics.

    Difference between simple and to simple though. Web 2.0 basically is the definition of "Simple" and those are all characteristics of the Web 2.0 or Simple look. To simple though can be a major turn off sometimes.

    I saw a few gaming sites that doesn't have heavy graphics, just a good header with the site's name in it.

    Definitely every interface his own advantages and disadvantages But i think its not good for the business that needs more customer oriented and customer has to create query on them.

    Simplicity is a relative term. For my design services, I market myself as an artist who designs simple websites, but if you look at my work, simple is relative to the industry and what needs to be accomplished.

    In my opinion only that website could be called simple which allows a first time user to easily understand and navigate.

    During the design process, I always think to myself "What can I take out?" instead of "What can I add?"

    From a UX Design perspective, achieving the ultimate goal with the least amount of effort.

    I think that simple means user-friendly design and not much content

    That is right.
    But every advantage implies its disadvantage.
    If website is too simple,it may not look professional that there will be only few returning visitors.

    When you say "SIMPLE WEBSITE" it only means that it is easy to use and the users do not have any hard time accessing the pages or products or other contents that they need on your website. Such simplicity can also be called being a "minimalist".

    Take for example "GOOGLE" and "YAHOO". When you go to google.com, you can only see their SE box with no ads at all. All white and the SE box. Making it to load faster and more convenient to use than anything else.

    While Yahoo takes some time to load due to lots of ads and animations added on it main pages. You can also add some pop-up ads too making them quite tough to use unlike Google. Though I like both SE like Bing too, I still prefer on how Google serves their users in a very simple yet fantastic manner - making them a very popular SE.

    Depends on the Business Type . Like For Real Estate Website , use of Flash and Images Plays great Role . A website Should be Designed First From Visitors Point of view and then from Search engines .

    Yes, it is right that website should be simple and should not be complicated to navigate, read and access. Simple website looks great and everyone can easily access the website without any problems. Make sure that the website should be user-friendly and unique in content so it easily catch the visitors' attention.
