Press "Enter" to skip to content

Three ways that you can limit information overload of your Website.

Create manageable information segments: –

Break your content into smaller files, then link them together. Provide logical groupings of choices. Keep a flat hierarchy. A good rule to follow is that users should not have to click more than two or three times to get to the information they desire.

Control page length: –

Do not make users scroll through never-ending pages. Long files also can mean long downloads. Provide plenty of internal links to help users get around and keep the pages short. You can judge your page length by pressing the Page Down key; if you have to press it more than two or three times to move from the top to the bottom of your page, break up the file.

Use hypertext to connect facts, relationships, and concepts: –

Provide contextual linking to relate concepts, facts, or definitions, letting the users make the choices they want. Know your material and try to anticipate the user’s information need.
