Web Usability Errors 2005

Here are some of the more prominent and frequently encountered Web Usability Errors so far this year.

(1.) No immediate, clear presentation of site owner's identity and purpose of site.

(2.) Dysfunctional site search.

(3.) Database errors disallowing interactive functions and forms processing.

(4.) No upfront Contact, Bio, Profile, About, History, Background, or Credentials.

(5.) Failure to display a user orientation device to provide guidance through site, based on individual priorities.

(6.) No new visitor welcome.

(7.) No sense of a close, friendly human personality behind the site.

(8.) Using a multi-category discussion forum instead of a post topic comment thread.
