Today Matt explains what you can do to make your site’s copy scannable for the user.
Hey everybody we’re talking about usability and today I want to explain why it’s important for your website to be scannable. Users can get really frustrated if they can’t look through a website for a few seconds and find what they’re looking for. It is said that users will give the website about five seconds until they move onto the next site. You could do a lot of things to make your website scannable and the first one being make your headlines very descriptive and bold. That way when a user is scrolling through your website they can pick out those headings and find what they’re looking for. The next one, you could incorporate a list into your copy. It’s a great way to break up large blocks of copy and also very easy for a user to scan through and find what they’re looking for. Another thing you can do to your site to make it scannable is to make sure that all links on your site are again bold, that way they stand out for the user and the user knows exactly where they need to go to find the information they’re looking for. We’re going to be talking a lot about usability this month and I hope you register for our seminar that we’re going to be hosting on July 30th and I hope to see you there.
