Website Usability Tips

There are a few simple things you can do to make your website more user-friendly.

Regardless of how brilliant your website design is, if the content on your site is hard to read, then the site just isn’t useful.

Below are some tips to improve the usability of a website to ensure it functions at optimum level.

Readable Typography

The letters and words on your site

The first method is to make sure the content has suitable typography. If large blocks of text exist, be sure to use CSS to space out the lines accordingly.

The longer a single line of text is, the greater the line-height each line should be. Also, make sure the font size of the text is big enough to be easily read.

Having 10-pixel-tall text in Verdana font may look neat and tidy, but will be a real eye strain for site visitors reading the actual text. 14pt is more suitable these days.

Clear and Concise Text Formatting

When you’re formatting text for your website, you want to make sure that it’s easy to read and understand. This means using clear and concise text formatting.

To make your text easy to read, use short paragraphs and sentence fragments. Break up your text with headings and lists, and use simple fonts and colours.

If you’re using images on your website, make sure that the text is easy to read next to them. You may also want to use a light background colour so that your text stands out.

By using clear and concise text formatting, you can make your website content easy to read and understand for your visitors.

Easy To Use Navigation

How your visitors move around and find information

Make it easy for visitors to find content on your site.

If a visitor wants to find one single article from a pile of thousands of articles on your site then a feasible means to enable visitors to do that hassle-free must be provided.

Whether its a SQL-driven database search engine (typical for WordPress sites) or a glossary or index of articles listed, providing a feature such as this will ensure your visitors can use your site easily.

Your Pages Load Fast

Fast loading websites make visitors hang around

Ensure the website is fast loading if you do not want to lose visitors.

Most internet users will leave a website if it doesn’t load completely within 10 seconds, so be sure your website is delivered to the visitors as soon as possible to retain their attention.

Pages Are Properly Linked Together

When you’re creating a website, it’s important to make sure that all of your pages are properly linked. This will help your users move around your website more easily, and it will also make your website look more professional.

To link your pages, you can use the <a> tag. The <a> tag is used to create links, and it looks like this:

<a href=”http://www.example.com”>Link Text</a>

The <a> tag has two attributes: href and target. The href attribute is used to specify the location of the link, and the target attribute is used to specify the window in which the link will open.

The most common way to specify the location of a link is by using the URL of the page that you want to link to.

Links Are Clearly Labelled

Make sure all of your links are easy to find and clearly labelled. This will help your users navigate your website more easily.

Labelled links make it easy for your users to find what they are looking for on your website., Users can use different types of labels, such as text or icons, to help your users identify the helpful link.

Additionally, you can use different colours or sizes to distinguish between different types text of links. This will help your users locate the information they need on your website more easily.

When creating links, always use descriptive link text that clearly describes the destination of the link. Avoid using generic link text such as “click here” or “more information”.

No Broken Links

Error 404, Link no longer exists equals.. Bye Bye

Last of all, test and check each and every link on a website before it goes online.

Nothing is more effective in tarnishing a professional website image than broken links
