Web usability: do-it-yourself resources

Website usability.jpg

Did you know only 16% of users read web pages word-for-word? Or that line length affects readability? Research suggests that only up to 75 characters per line is acceptable. 

Here's a list of my go-to places for web usability best practice

  1. Article : How Users Read on the Web
  2. Book: Don't Make Me Think by Steve Krug
  3. Tool: Online Character Count Tool
  4. Website: Writing for Gov.UK - see top link "Writing well for the web"
  5. Guide: "Tips for clear websites" (under heading "Special subjects")
  6. Online courses: Lynda.com
