It's time you shared your knowledge with the world. The fact is the more people that start considering usability with their web pages, the better for all.
I throw out a challenge to all that dare. Come forward with your Usability Best Practices. Let’s put together a joint list of all the best usability ideas we know.
In return, I'll assemble the list into an article and then we'll use peer pressure to get Jill to publish it in her newsletter. (Are you listening Jill??)
The person who submits the Most and Best tips will get a "Special Super Secret Award" (meaning I haven't figured out what they'll get yet...I'll take suggestions).
Of course, I'll list your name and URL so you'll get credit for your super ideas. Yes, guys - free links!
Okay...I'll prime the pump.
1. Use consistent intuitive navigation. Users are impatient. They hate having to learn new site navigation. Make your navigation obvious and consistent throughout your site.
Come on, there are a zillion usability tips – who’s got some they’re willing to share?
Added after contest was on for awhile - 2 Aug: You can see the latest list of tips at this temporary page:
