  1. User experience has often take a backseat to monetization needs at publishers, leading to the rise of ad blocking, and tech giants like Google and Apple cracking down on ads that slow down page speed.

    But letting go of annoying, obtrusive ad formats which are still big revenue generators isn’t easy for publishers. For the latest in our Confessions series, we spoke to a digital media vet, who until recently was a senior publishing executive at a national newspaper, but has also spent time on the ad tech side, about the challenges in fixing the user experience.

  2. There’s no denying that we reside in a mobile-first world. There’s also no denying that this trend will continue, which means competition will inevitably become tougher and tougher.

  3. What is user experience? How does it affect SEO? What do I need to know?

    We have all the answers and explain why you need to focus on both SEO and UX if you want your website to be a success. We also provide a lot of actionable advice… so dive straight in!

    With search engines getting smarter thanks to the increasing usage of machine learning, old SEO tactics are thankfully being rendered useless.

    While before, a few keywords stuffed throughout the content was sufficient to get noticed by a search engine, it’s no longer the case. More relevant factors are now being taken into account to judge the quality of a website.

  4. Well-designed digital systems and government websites are crucial for e-governance to succeed.

    Governor of Hawaii David Ige had a Muffley moment earlier this month. The Hawaii Emergency Management Agency had just pushed out a false ballistic missile alert on cellphones and airwaves. Ige was informed of the mistake within 2 minutes. But it would take 38 minutes for a public correction. The alert system, it turned out, had no cancellation option. How, Ige might have wondered like Cold War satire Dr. Strangelove’s hapless US President Merkin Muffley facing the prospect of nuclear armageddon, was it possible for the thing to be impossible to untrigger?

  5. The experience your customers have when they visit your website and how easy it is for them to use is vital to the success of your online presence.

    If your website is unprofessional or does not meet expectations from a design perspective then your audience may not trust your company, if it is slow and difficult to find what they want they may leave before getting in contact or completing their order.

    This means, between a well-designed website that a customer finds easy to use and a poorly designed one can be the difference between success and failure online.

  6. Consumer habits are quickly shifting and more online activity is occurring on-the-go with mobile phones, netbooks, e-readers and tablets as opposed to desktops and laptops. Every device and operating system offers a unique user experience with specific functions, requirements and behaviours.

    The Problem: Many business websites do not provide a smooth user experience on mobile devices. Users need to ‘pinch-and-zoom’ to properly view webpages, webpages are slow to load and site menus are difficult to access.

    Not being accessible on mobile devices results in a loss of local website traffic, mobile leads, and potential profits.

  8. The eCommerce industry has experienced a tremendous amount of growth in the past decade. This growth – in combination with a (still) relatively low market share – represents a huge opportunity for more innovative eCommerce companies looking to overtake their traditional counterparts.

    However, in order to latch on to the ‘growth train’, these same eCommerce companies (and therefore, eCommerce managers) are going to have to put their best foot forward. In other words, they’ll need to be sure that they are providing a first-rate online customer experience.

  9. Brought on by the steady rise in mobile users and usage worldwide, mobile user experience (or Mobile UX) has recently become a major focal point for many digital marketers. It essentially encompasses how customers experience a mobile app while they’re active in the app itself. With the goal of offering a smooth and user-friendly UX, mobile UX is something which must be continuously optimised – especially if businesses wish to maintain a loyal and satisfied customer base. This is where the use of in-app feedback comes in handy.

  10. The ongoing 'fake news' saga highlighted a previously unseen flaw in Facebook’s model: allowing open access to all became a liability to the social media giant’s brand, and therefore to the wider company.
