Newegg Website Usability Test
James Plaut DIG 245
Find Newegg Premier for Student
Moderately accurate, even after the premier sign-up page was found it still took time to find the student section.
Find out how to become a Newegg seller
Accurate, the user quickly used the featured sellers bar to find the Newegg seller option.
Find the email subscription sign-up
Moderately accurate, the user accidentally scrolled by it once.
Find the marketplace spotlight
Not very accurate, scrolled through the whole page and looked at the footer before finding it under Deals & Services.
Find the careers page
Very accurate, immediately scrolled down to find the correct page. However, this may be due to them reading the footer in the previous test.
Results and Recommendations
The marketplace spotlight should probably get its own tab in the footer, or be made distinguishable from Deals & Services in some meaningful way.
The subscription letter should possibly be more catchy to the users eye, scrolling by it accidentally ruins the point.
Newegg premier for students was a hard find, premier itself is a bit out of the way but the student option should probably be higher up on the page than it currently is.
