Si bien se trata de aspectos básicos en los que no se va a entrar en profundidad, puede ayudarte a contemplar la necesidad de contratar a un profesional para que ponga solución a los errores en materia de posicionamiento web que estás cometiendo.

Testa Mag L’expérience utilisateur des sites web s’est améliorée à pas de géant au cours des dernières années, mais il nous arrive encore souvent de tomber sur des sites qui nous font nous demander : « Mais à quoi pensaient-ils ? » Du point de vue du design, il est facile de se laisser prendre dans des querelles internes (« Non, non, c’est le contenu qui doit être au centre ») ou de perdre du temps à cause d’un choix de type de management (« j’avais dit que nous devions faire du lean UX sur ce projet »). Lorsque cela se produit, on oublie souvent que l’utilisateur final n’a pas assisté à toutes ces décisions, et qu’il veut juste obtenir l’information dont il a besoin, acheter le produit qu’il souhaite, ou se divertir pendant cinq minutes en attendant le train. Dans l’espoir que cela puisse aider à éviter ces écueils, voici une liste de 5 erreurs majeurs d’UX que l’on retrouve sur les sites web d’aujourd’hui.

Designing Web Interfaces We just wrapped up last day of the IA Summit 2012 in lovely New Orleans. I have enjoyed wonderful food, drinks, company and speakers including Stephen Anderson , Josh Clark , Chris Risdon , Greg Nudelman, Nadine Schaeffer and Dan Brown. But one of the talks on Saturday, a panel called Taking the Plunge: Diving into Indie UX , left me gaping. The first section focused on design and design process and how it would be different if you are acting as an independent operator vs working within an agency or organization. I was shocked to hear the 4 panelists don’t collaborate with other designers or work with mentors because, as one said “ I’m a good designer, I don’t need help “.

The description of the usability issue and solution are discussed ahead.

Link Building Tactics - The Complete List Remember how people say, "it's not about what you know, it's about who you know"? The same goes for the Web. Those relationships will turn into links, both in the short-term & the long-term. Just like with getting people to see you content, I realized a lot of the tactical ways to build relationships aren’t direct ways to get links, I decided to delete that section in this guide, and list all of them here instead.
