TA: Tips for making your website useful to users

While Avoid Weak 'Links' in Your Digital Chain was written for federal government agencies, the advice is applicable to nonprofits and DC government.   As the article points out, linking appropriately is good for searchability and makes for good readability and a positive user experience.   Ways to accomplish the good practices promoted by DigitalGov include:

  • make links descriptive
  • be concise
  • use color, bold, and or underline to differentiate links from normal text
  • indicate if the link leads to a document versus a webpage
