Imagine you are on your computer right now and you are reading the news for the day. You already know what to look out for such as headlines, videos, and a key text of the news story.
Whenever you look at a website, you expect to see not only an amazing layout but also content that has clarity. If the visitor of a website can not use a feature on a website successfully, it simply should not exist.
In this article, we are going to explain and understand the thought process of the users when looking at a website.
After reading this article, you will have a better understanding of what to look out for when designing a website. If you are someone who specializes in web design, then you have come to the right place.
Thought process of website users:
The purpose of a website is to attract users which will lead to increased traffic. Here are some general facts in regards to how users act on a website. Your average user will take a brief look at different web pages, look out for any particular text, and click on something that may interest them.
Your average user will take a brief look at different web pages, look out for any particular text and click on something that may interest them.
You want to have a design that is clean and not congested. For example, instead of having a web design of San Diego, you can have a design that will not overtake the website.
Another thing to keep in mind is that if the web design does not meet the users’
expectations, then be prepared to witness a lot of back button clicking activity.
Now that we have gone over a brief introduction of the thought process of website users, let’s now go over some statistics to understand the users’ behavior activity on websites.
Here are some statistics that can help you understand what a good web design should look like:
● Quality and credibility:
This is something that the users will appreciate. If a web page can provide the users content that is proven to be high-quality, then they are willing to compromise the content with advertisements and the overall web design. If you actually think about it, content is more important than a design.
● More scanning, less reading:
Apparently, users tend to read less and instead, they want to scout around a website in a freeing manner. Users will simply lookout for keywords and that will help guide them with the overall content of a web page.
● Good functionality:
Users want to have consistent control when going through web pages. The last thing that users want to deal with is any sudden pop-ups. Otherwise, the users will just hit the back button and move on to some other site.
Now that you have an idea of what the thought process is for the users of a website, you have a head start on creating the perfect web design that can lead to building exponential web traffic.
One final piece of advice is that the user is always right in the world of IT or information and technology.
