The book focuses on the actual content of the website and not just the design or functionality. Redish discusses a wide range of topics which all apply to the user experience.
- Breaking up the text using headings, subheads, and bulleted lists.
- Writing links that are meaningful.
- Making sure your site is accessible to everyone.
Another valuable book is “Usability for the Web” by Tom Brinck, Darren Gergle & Scott D. Wood. It provides a comprehensive discussion of website usability. The book provides 450 pages of usability advice. It’s broken down into easy sections allowing you to jump to the areas you may need; however, I would recommend reading the whole book.
Here is a list of the sections:
- Pervasive Usability
- Requirements Analysis
- Conceptual Design
- Mockups and Prototypes
