Threats to Web Designing

No web designer wants to set a terrible user experience. In fact it is not just the user experience, which hinders web designing, but there are dozens of usability mistakes, which when repeated right through the user interface creates one annoying experience.

Today in this blog well be discussing some of the points, which frustrate the users:

  1. Ignoring the Design of Blank Slates

A blank slate, in web designing, is what a screen appears to be like when a user hasnt yet added any data or also when all of the data related to that screen has been deleted by the user.

There are some simple elements which enhances the usability of the screen. They are:

  • Prominent description:

Placed at the top of the screen, with a description of what the screen is about.

  • Actionable components:

Three pathways that allow users to get started immediately

  • Blank slate indicator:

A statement telling that there are no items to display in the screen

 

  1. Uncertain Button Labels

When you fill out a form to create an account, what according to you should the button at the end of it say?

It should always spontaneously say Create Account.

The label on a web button should always tie back the user. These interface essentials should never be uncertain, doubtful, or unclear. They should be as noticeable and apparent as possible.

These Interface elements of Website Creation Companies should never initiate the following questions in the users mind:

  • Will it bring me to a new web page?
  • Will it reveal a modal window with a web form?

 

  1. Making the Users Wait

I always hate to wait, particularly if its for an indefinite period of time.

But we most of the time make our users wait continually in our websites and applications. We make them wait every time we are updating a web pages content or opening a modal window with a very large high-resolution photo, or even when our web server abruptly goes through an abridged performance.

Hence making users wait is at times inevitable, but making users wait — without informing them — is never obligatory.

 

  1. Losing User Inputs

When users sign in for a web application, the first thing that is required is to fill out profile information. Thats fine. But when for some reason the user is brought back to the same page, telling them to fill up more information is a kind of irritating!!

The actual issue here is that photo or some other vital information are gone, which needs to be filled up again. This brings to the cardinal rule of web form validation: where a user does not lose any data after validating his/her inputs.

 

  1. Clickable Areas should be Larger

In fact last but not the least its important to make sure that the elements that appear to be clickable in a web server should be actually clickable.

Majority of users presume that the entire tab is clickable, but thats not the case in most of the websites. Only the text is clickable. This usually annoys the user. What is worse is that this is a frequent mistake occurring.

However, this entire blog gives us a brief idea of the frequent mistakes occurring in a web server pattern. Web Consulting Companies should always look out for these mistakes.
