Understanding UX 

UX is determined by a variety of factors, including site load speed, accessibility on different devices, and ease of navigating the site. In general, strong UX means that visitors will have a positive experience clicking through your site and they’ll find relevant information for their needs. User experience isn’t just a buzzword—it’s integral for a strong performance in search engine rankings. Increasingly, Google search algorithms target various signals of positive UX so that users are presented with the best possible results to their queries. So, by emphasizing user experience in your website design, you’ll be building a sturdy foundation for your ongoing SEO. 

How to Optimize for User Experience in Your Website Design 

There are some components of positive user experience that are universal for any audience, such as rapid page load times, easy to read fonts, and responsive website design that loads on any device. However, it’s necessary to build detailed audience personas to truly optimize your site for the users you want to see.
