Statistic Info

There are even more statistics and facts within the infographic itself, but these are the hardest-hitting, at-a-glance stats we found. Even if you just take a quick glance at these numbers, you can seethe value in a beautiful, functional website that really serves the user.

As modern web users, we all have expectations. If a page loads slowly, if a site loads poorly on your mobile device, or if you can’t find the information you’re looking for, you’re going to head to another website. Immediately.

Web designers already know this, of course. But if you’re pursuing a DIY solution for your own website, or are planning on enlisting a designer soon, then the general concepts you pull from these statistics are something you should keep in mind. The user comes first, and approaching a website in any other way usually results in costly mistakes and missed opportunities.
