Usability mistakes that you should avoid

“Get rid of half the words on each page, then get rid of half of what’s left.” (Steve Krug)

Usability has become an important factor in the discrimination of web design development and services. From usability, usability mistakes have been depicted, importance of which cannot be neglected. Usability itself renders as the ease of individuals in finding the website via search engines along with accessing the website pretty easily. Main soul of usability lies in the aspect of communication between the web design interface and the approach of the accessibility of individuals.

Below is a list of usability mistakes that should be avoided and in any circumstance should not be made use of;



You cannot particularly lead to a destination without having proper navigation and map sense. Similarly, with the diversity and complexity of web, the website should be properly navigated for the assistance of the consumer. Web designers should also construct their websites very swiftly. They must not forget to add the connecting link between the homepage and the respective page.



Your website cannot attain a successful path if the ratio of web developer dominance is greater than that of customers’ whims. Some web developers maintain this myth of opening any link into a new window. This action is obviously contrary to what consumers want. Consumers and users want their links to be opened within the same window.


Over whelming

Over whelming factor never makes any design appealing and soothing. Certain web developers are so much agitated and think that everything should be accommodated within a single room hence the room gets over occupied and when any user visits such website instead of responding to what the content of the website means the user spontaneously shuts the website. White space is significance because it highlights the content and therefore exhibits a higher user experience and functionality of the website.


Long scrolling

People are often associated with variable mentalities hence some of the people do not favor long scrolling pages. Long scrolling pages put all your content in one centralized page due to which most of the people do not bother scrolling down and only pay attention to whatever is visible on the screen. Also, Google has made sure that the image section is prioritized for scrolling whereas the text search page is prioritized for pagination in order to suit people with different mentalities.

Always understand that no matter how much appealing your website is but if it failed to make new customers then it is of no worth and simultaneously this results in zero customer satisfaction hence the website is destined to be ruined.

“Your objective should always be to eliminate instructions entirely by making everything self-explanatory, or as close to it as possible. When instructions are absolutely necessary, cut them back to a bare minimum.” (Steve Krug)
