Refining your website’s user experience in 3 steps
There are plenty of sites out there. Beyond producing great content, it’s vital to make yours stand out. How? One way is to provide an exceptional user experience (UX).
Use tools to put yourself in your user’s shoes, and then rectify anything that compromises their ability to move easily through your site. In turn, these optimizations can produce a positive impact on the performance of your ads.
1. Measure your site’s performance
As a first step, assess your current website user experience to understand what developments are needed.
Track important metrics about how your site performs in Google Search results using Search Console. Find out how often your site appears, its average position, click-through rates and more.
The Performance report provides visibility into how your search traffic changes over time, where it’s coming from and what search queries are most likely to show your site. See which pages have the highest (and lowest) click-through rate from Google Search.
Expose untapped performance opportunities and improve the quality of web pages through Lighthouse. With Lighthouse audits, you can identify and then fix common problems that affect your site’s performance, accessibility and user experience.
Run a mobile-friendly test to see how easily a visitor can use your page on a mobile device. Just enter a page URL to find how you score. The majority of users coming to your site are likely to be using a mobile device, so if you haven’t made your site mobile-friendly, you should.
