Questo post è in inglese perché partecipa allo “usability library
contest” lanciato da User Effect. Chiedo umilmente scusa a chiunque
rimarrà turbato dall’uso sconsiderato della lingua. Non prendetemi
troppo in giro che sono sensibile…
Here’s the top 3 reasons I love usability and I want to improve my knowledge
- As a SEO specialist I know that I can do many good things to
increase traffic and visibility of a website, but if your site is
not well designed for user all you can obtain is an epic fail.
Putting a website in the first position for the most competitive
queries is completely pointless if users can buy your product
because of a bad designed shopping cart or product listing. It’s a
waste of bandwidth and money. I believe that usability knowledge can
make me a better SEO specialist and can be the real ultimate SEO weapon.
- Although there are many smart people in Italy the overall level of
the country in term of knowledge about Internet as technology and as
medium is quite low. In many things we are five or six years late
with respect to USA. Usability and user centered design and
development are not so widespread and there are only few companies
that offer usability studies as their core business. I believe that
usability should become part of the culture of developer, marketeer,
CEO and obviously web designers. Only if these people can really
understand the benefit of usability we can have a big improvement
of the Italian web scene. I want to improve my usability knowledge
because I want to be a usability evangelist in my company and in my community.
- Well designed things make people happy. Think about all the
times you find yourself frustrated for a bad designed websites or
web application, maybe it’s a big site with thousands of users
sharing same frustration every day… Let’s stop bad karma! I like
to think about usability as a mean to make people less frustrated
and more comfortable in many task of everyday life.
Let’s make the world usable!
