    It is said that a visitor coming to your site already has an idea of what they want. This test involves checking the site and ascertaining whether a visitor can figure out what to do next in three seconds.Has anyone tried this before?

    As much as I haven’t heard of this test before, putting yourself in the shoes of the site visitor is a good way of ascertaining how efficient a website is. Changes can then be made to improve overall performance.

    A visitor to a particular website should never struggle to find what it is they are looking for. There's nothing as good as visiting a website that is very straightforward. Putting yourself in a visitor's position is a good way of counter checking this.
