The internet is full of different ‘listicles’ of top 10 design agencies or best UI/UX companies, most of them are basically SEO-optimized paid listings with terrible design. We think that the quality of the websites/articles is very low because most of the really good digital product design agencies are not even listed there. So we decided to add our 5 cents to that and provide a list of great user experience design agencies and companies who (based on our research) deserve much more attention.
A site creates value when people find it and use it. The first step is engaging the target audience by creating something they will want to experience. User Experience (UX) is how people perceive their interaction with the site. UX combines sight, sound, touch, actions, emotions, and social stigma, all with individual context.
A great homepage is much more than a collection of words and images. UX designers focus on making the page not just useful, but enjoyable to use. The focus is on delighting the user.
“Give users what they want — and a little more. In addition to enabling users to use your service effectively and efficiently, make them also think, ‘Wow, this application is genius.’ Exceed their expectations desirably. If you do so, they will use your website or app not because they have to but because they want to.
Going forward, Google will only continue to raise the bar for what it considers to be mobile-friendly (including page load time) and reflect that in its algorithm updates. So if you haven’t been focusing on improving your mobile experience, you’d better prioritize it now, or your search ranking could really suffer.
Implementing a user-friendly website, load time/Page speed, page dwell time, Bounce rate & URL structure is an integral part of an effective user experience strategy. Effective URL structures help to orient the user in terms of where they are in the overall hierarchy of your website. They also help communicate what the page is about. Ineffective URL structures are exactly the opposite; they have no hierarchal structure and offer little to no insight about the contents of the page. The example, below, is an example of a poor URL structure:
Keyword research is the process of discovering words and phrases that people use in search engines with the ultimate goal of optimizing content around those terms and ranking for those terms in search engines.
A competitive analysis is a critical part of your company marketing plan. With this evaluation, you can establish what makes your product or service unique–and therefore what attributes you play up in order to attract your target market.
Link building, simply put, is the process of getting other websites to link back to your website. … Building links is one of the many tactics used in search engine optimization (SEO) because links are a signal to Google that your site is a quality resource worthy of citation.
