5 Things are very important in Usability for a web-page

1. Having search feature : Placing search on top left or top right left ensures immediate visibility to the users.

2. Special attension to the web-page/layout : Eye catchy headings/ subheadings, bullets, bold text are needed, so the user focus is more on highlighted areas, while reading the content.

3. Keeping the user interface simple & consistent : Design should be intuitive means self explanatory. Keeping the interface simple & clear makes the easier navigation for the user. New users/ first time users quickly become regulars if the interface design is simple & consistent. As it will be very easy to user to understand.

4. Proper structure of web forms : Text hints needed in the input fields (for first name, last name, birth day, birth year etc.) for no ambiguity to the required input field order style or type. Text hints will be removed when the user focuses on the input field. Chunking or grouping items logically section-wise as distinct topics, which makes the user understand easily & quickly fill out the form items. For user action there should be proper responses to reduce confusions. After filling the form, user should get feedback or confirmation. User should be properly guided/ suggested for the form fill out errors. Errors should be properly listed out with correcting hints.

5. Help feature is very important : All the users are not technically sound. So the interface need to be intuitive & easily accessible to the areas in order to get, “what to do ? ” for “what they want” !! Help feature plays crucial role to prevent the user from being discouraged from using the site. If they can’t figure out for what they want easily & if there is no alternate way to seek help feature then they will try to look for a site where they can figure out the things easily.
