Usability looks at how easy it is for a user of your site to navigate your website and accomplish the goals that you have set for that site – find a health care provider, apply for admissions to your college, etc. Reviewing your site for usability issues and finding ways to address them is critical for a well-functional and effective web presence. Without it, your site runs the potential of being too difficult to use and people will leave the site.
