  •  Form Labels Work Best AboveThe Field  Users Focus On Faces  Quality Of Design Is An Indicator Of Credibility  Most Users Do Not Scroll  Blue IsThe Best Color For Links
  •  The Ideal Search Box Is 27-Characters Wide  White Space Improves Comprehension  Effective UserTesting Doesn’t HaveTo Be Extensive  Informative Product Pages HelpYou Stand Out  Most Users Are BlindTo Advertising
  •  UX Matters found that the idea position for labels is above the field.
  •  OnWeb pages, we tend to focus on people’s faces and eyes than text.
  •  One interesting finding of these studies is that users really do judge a book by its cover… or rather, a website by its design.
  •  Jakob Nielsen’s study on how much users scroll (in Prioritizing Web Usability), He said :  only 23% of visitors scroll on their first visit to a website.  77% of visitors won’t scroll;  16% scrolling on their second
  •  The first consideration is contrast  Secondly, they should stand out from the color of the rest of the text  And finally, research shows that sticking to blue for links is best.
  •  The study found that the average search box is 18- characters wide.The data showed that 27% of queries were too long to fit into it.  Extending the box to 27 characters would accommodate 90% of queries.
  •  A study (Lin, 2004) found that good use of white space between paragraphs and in the left and right margins increases comprehension by almost 20%.
  •  Jakob Nielsen’s study on the ideal number of test subjects in usability tests found that tests with just five users would reveal about 85% of all problems with your website
  •  Make the information easy to digest. Make the page scanable by breaking up the text into smaller segments and using plenty of sub- headings.
  •  The implication of this is not only that users will avoid ads but that they’ll avoid anything that looks like an ad, even if it’s not an ad. Some heavily styled navigation items may look like banners, so be careful with these elements.
