Webmasters, Don’t Punish Your Users

February 17, 2015 By

David Ajoy


There are many ways webmasters unintentionally punish visitors on their websites; through poor navigation, pop-ups, no clear calls-to-action, cumbersome checkout processes and bombarding users’ email inboxes with promotions.

A website is meant to inform, entertain, and provide a product or service. Why neglect basic user experience (UX) issues? This causes visitors to bounce directly off your website, which negatively impacts your search engine results. In addition, you can forget return visitors or positive reviews if you treat your customers to spam or an experience that left them cursing at their computers.

Check the usability

Improve your website navigation

One of the first problems that many websites have is that they tend to be overcomplicated, or on the other end of the spectrum too simple. This leaves lost and unsure of where to go and how to find what they’re looking for.

Make clear Call To Action routes

Although sometimes you’re unaware, when you visit a website, there are hidden or not-so-hidden calls-to-action throughout the website, hinting at what steps you should take next. This could be something such as a suggested question, to a button asking you to “Start Learning Now.”

Create a captivating visual

It does not matter what type of website is being visited.  Just because your industry isn’t necessarily in the realm of creativity doesn’t mean that your visitors don’t want to have a pleasing design.

A busy, cluttered and unappealing website is going to cause some visitors to leave immediately, raising your bounce rate and losing your customers.
