  1. Missing Search Box


A visitor might land on your website in a number of ways. Either organically through Search Engines or via Social Media or referral traffic. They might also like the meta text in the search engine and click your link. So, most likely they need to access what they want to. Sometimes, your UI might not facilitate users to find what they are looking for. In those scenarios, they might need a Search Button to locate a specific content.


UI Designers can incorporate search buttons to help visitors find the actual content on the website. These features are also built in with CMS like WordPress. Having a search box on the website homepage improves the User Experience overall and therefore every website should have a search functionality on their website.



  1. Slow Loading


Even the best-in-class UI won’t prove usable if your website takes more than usual time to load. Slow websites result in poor website user experience with high bounce rates. Too many scripts and requests with no image optimization are some of the major barriers to the fast websites.  Visually appealing and interactive UI needs too many optimization. The optimization helps increased web performance and it also helps in improving SERP.



  1. Inadaptability to Mobile Devices


It is a common belief among the mobile users that if a business website is not well-accessible to the mobile devices, Business organization might not be careful about their services. This can portray a poor brand image to the users. Not designing a responsive website is as good as not owning a website at all. Almost every type of website should focus on achieving responsive design and businesses must have it in order to give them online plausibility.
