    What Is Web Usability?


    (Page 1 of 3 )

    Web Usability. It sounds very simple. "Itís just how to use the Web, right? I already know how to do that."Thatís not exactly right. In fact, Web Usability is the layout, construction, structure and navigation of your website. Does that sound simple now?

    Web Usability - A Real World Comparison

    You can compare a website to an actual store. Letís say you walk into one of those big retailers, looking for a new baseball glove. Now, youíve never been there before. So, you first need to find the Sporting Goods section. This store is huge. And with all the shelves and displays up front, you canít see the layout of the remaining 80% of the space.

    The store might have a guide/map up front for you to check out. Then again, if itís the chain I have in mind, they probably donít. Instead, youíre going to wander around looking for signs. You also might use past experience in stores to make an educated guess. For example, you probably would look for the Pharmacy in the same area as the medicine and vitamins. Thatís where they usually put it.
