Website User Experience Analysis
User experience has a direct connection to the overall performance of your website. Visitors that are unhappy with how your website is laid out are less likely to stay, engage, or buy from your website. But if you tried to optimize your UX before and the results are the same, it means that your website needs a comprehensive UX analysis. We will help you pinpoint issues and weak points in your UX through visitor surveys, analysis of visitor behaviors, and a site audit to identify weak usability elements.
Also, User Experience is the #1 SEO Ranking Factor
Your website represents your business. And your website’s visitors’ experience directly impacts the way they see your business. Knowing what’s wrong with your UX is just like knowing why no one steps from to buy in your brick-and-mortar store.
Why UX Can Make or Break Your Website
Unclear Navigational Cues
Navigation issues alone can make or break your website. You can’t gain a customer’s loyalty if your website’s navigation is confusing with tedious transactions that redirect to different pages. Even a great deal won’t make customers stay if they can’t ascertain how to avail of said deal.
Non-Intuitive User Interfaces
Website visitors expect an interface where they do not need to read a user manual to navigate. Non-intuitive and complex UI is one of the main hurdles in UX. Some of the key things that can improve UI is discoverability, affordance, efficiency, and predictability.
Non-Responsive User Interfaces
Another issue in UI is unresponsiveness. An effective UI should provide responsive feedback, showing users the results of their action immediately. A delay of a few seconds can result in abandonment, especially if the action you asked for doesn’t provide them with any incentives to stay.
Slow Loading Times
Your prospective customers won’t wait in line online. 47 percent of website visitors expect a site to load within 2 seconds. Another 40 percent of visitors will leave if the site won’t load within 3 seconds. The figure is even higher in mobile users with 53 percent opting to leave if a website misses the 3-second mark
Weak and Unclear Calls to Action
Don’t confuse visitors with calls to action that barely gets the message across. Like navigational and interface cues, your calls to action should immediately tell your visitors that this is the way and that this is where you should click. Without that clear message, you can’t expect visitors to perform your desired action.
Error 404 is one of the most common website errors. It results from either a broken link or a page that did not redirect properly. This, along with Error 504 (gateway timeout) makes for a frustrating visit on a website.

Our years of experience in the industry taught us how customers think and what drives them to either leave or buy from a website.
The UX Optimization Process
UX optimization isn’t a quick fix, though. It’s a process that involves two main steps: UX analysis and recommendation implementation. UX analysis requires a thorough inspection of the website’s design elements and identification of weak usability elements. Visitor behaviors also provide important insights on visitors’ impressions of the website and how they interact with the website’s elements. As the analysis goes along, we will provide recommendations that we can implement to improve your website’s overall user experience.
