Improving the Usability of Web Content (Elsewhere on the Web)

Just thought you’d like to know of an article I wrote for Mashable on how to improve the usability and readability of web content. The article covers seven practical, easy-to-implement tips based on studies done by Jakob Nielsen, Gerry McGovern, academic researchers and others.

Here’s a short except from the post:

Writing content for web users has its challenges. Chief among them is the ease with which your content is read and understood by your visitors (i.e. its readability).

When your content is highly readable, your audience is able to quickly digest the information you share with them — a worthy goal to have for your website, whether you run a blog, an e-store or your company’s domain.

Check out my other posts on Mashable and I do encourage you to share the post to your friends and social networks! Thank you!

I’ll head over to Mashable and give this one a read.

Content is so important on websites and I think people often put no effort into it and don’t think about the websites users when adding content.
