Any site design is incomplete without a proper usability thought. Site usablity is some thing which every designer or site owner is concerned with in recent times. There was a time when site designers and developers were not much aware of the advantages of the term 'usability'.
'5 points- site design' may sound like an incomplete article. Well, I feel usablity is something which will differ for different user groups. These 5 points are some basic ones which are needful for any designer designing any site, for any product, for any user.
1. Important contents within the first screen
2. Fast loadable page, else the user will move to the next similar site
3. Distinct hyperlinks with prominent visible colors.
4. Homepage should be the starting point of your site.
5. no frames, no pop ups as these things detest the users.
We'll discuss these one by one in my coming posts...
