3 Free Tools – Web Site Usability / User Experience

SEO Share this post

In my previous post I wrote about the importance of usability/user experience testing on your web site.

Now for some interesting tools to help you along…

Wave – free, easy to use, and fantastic for a visual overview of your site. I recommend you download the Firefox toolbar for an even better look at it.

Improve Readability – this one really caught me out on Buzz Marketing Pros! My home page was, sure enough, filled with “agency-speak” and not connecting with the average reader. It showed the offending copy right in the analysis, so I knew what I needed to change.

Usabilla – this tool is in beta. It allows you to get visual feedback from visitors, who can indicate what they do/don’t like about your site. I’m still working with this…you may encounter it soon when you visit the Diva.

Do you have favorite usability tools to add to this list?
