According to Netcraft, there are 525,998,344 websites in the world as of November 2011. During October 2011 alone, 22,000,000 new websites went online. That's wild! The web is growing at an exponential rate. Lets stop and ponder a question: how many of the 22,000,000 new websites launched last month suck? How many aggravate and frustrate their visitors?
Judging from our experience, the majority of them. Vincent Flaunders of "Websites That Suck" does a great job of cataloging sucky websites and the frustration they cause visitors. Take a look at these painful examples Vincent has shared:
We've decided we have to do something about this; it's time to stand up and help make the web a better place. We want to help website owners figure out problems with their sites before they launch and frustrate visitors.
We're looking for testers to take short usability tests and influence companies' design decisions. If you want to voice your opinion and make the web a better place, give us your email address by signing up below and we'll shoot you a note when we're ready to launch and need your help (which will be pretty soon).
