I’m really into checklists at the moment, and I’ve been squirrelling away lots of them for when I’m either rebuilding companies’ websites or just advising them on how they can improve what they’ve got. Anyway, I thought I’d share some of them with you in case you’re doing some DIY analysis …or perhaps they’ll inspire you to do some! You’ll see at least half a dozen appearing here over the next week or two.
Today: usability. If your site isn’t easy to use, you’re wasting all that expense and effort getting people to look at it. Test your Website: A 57-Point Checklist for Maximum Usability appeared a couple of years ago on the VirtualHosting.com website, and it’d be an excellent project for someone to go through and ask these questions about your website.
