What I need from a site

Posted on December 14, 2006. Filed under: Musings |

What are the reasons that someone visits a website?  Does anyone know?  Without getting too much into demographics, what is the number one reason someone visits a college/university website?  The number one reason someone visits a telco/isp site?

How many times do you find yourself frustrated at finding information you need… and wondering why these guys even bother to have a website?

How do you decide what to put up on your website?  You should decided that by looking at your phone history.  What kind of people call you and what do they call about?  This matrix of types of callers and types of questions should give the designer an idea on how to build your site.

So far, webdesign or any kind of interface design on the PC is a new thing and designers are more obsessed with menus, typography, colors and css2 then with anything to do with organising information.
