New free e-book: The Guide to Usability Testing

Guide to Usability Testing

Read on to get a sneak peek and see what’s inside the 109 pages.

Usability Testing & Design: The New Yelp Design (Part 1)

Usability Testing & Design: New Yelp Design

In our previous posts, we described the qualitative insights and quantitative insights from our user testing on Yelp’s website. Now that the results and analysis were done, it was time to put pen to paper and our cursors to the screen to get designing. 

We’ll show side by side comparisons of the current Yelp design and our new look. We’ll also explain our process of sketching and low fidelity wireframing. In Part 2, we’ll look at low fidelity prototyping and high fidelity prototyping.

User Testing & Design: 6 Quantitative Insights Into Yelp

User Testing & Design: Quantitative Analysis of Yelp's Website

Our last post talked about our qualitative analysis of the user tests on Yelp’s website. We found 7 key insights, such as learning that the Events tab wasn’t very helpful and that the filters could use improvement.

In this post, we’ll take a closer look at quantitative analysis on the Yelp site by discussing the insights from card sorting and click testing. To test the Yelp site, we ran a closed card sort and first click test.

User Testing & Design: 7 Qualitative Insights Into Yelp’s Website

User Testing & Design: Qualitative Analysis of Yelp's Website

The first part of our analysis involved examining the qualitative data collected through the screen-recorded user tests we mentioned in our previous post.

As you might recall, we ran a series of tests on 5 users (as recommended by Jakob Nielsen). When choosing users, we were looking for semi-frequent Yelp users. Our 5 users included 3 users who had Yelp accounts and 2 who did not (since some of our tasks required accounts). Both groups of users were assigned common tasks like finding a restaurant and less-common tasks like finding an event. By choosing all kinds of tasks, we hoped to cover the spectrum of general use cases. 

In this piece, we’ll uncover the insights and explain how they might influence our redesign of Yelp’s website.

We’ll show you how simple it can be to turn your Sketch files into a fully interactive prototype with a simple drag & drop. Within UXPin, your team can also comment directly on the design.
