The 12 Rules of ergonomics (ergonomic web interface):
1-Know your visitors or users and their habits is a crucial point for the architecture of the information on your website. It is the organization of information by different groups or themes to facilitate access and research and provide immediate access.

2-Visual organization
This is how your site is built: there must be consistency and clarity in the layout and be able to identify at a glance the different blocks or blocks that make up the site and its features. Indeed, an animation in the body of an item will create a distraction for the user: try the best to separate the space and to assign roles to each of them.

3-Consistency
Is to have a well organized and stable homogeneous throughout the visit of the user. A railroad is a navigation guide that will tell the visitor's position in the site. Items such as menus, buttons and other important contacts should not change location. We need to help your visitor to quickly find what they want. Innovate or should not create conflict with the ergonomics. Even if a button has to remain a button so that your visitor quickly understands that a click on that item will trigger an action, changing graphics it absolutely must remain easily identifiable and do not leave room for doubt.

4-Conventions
The use of internet has created the users reflexes and automatisms when visiting a web site should not be upset. Indeed, this change will impact directly your visitor is then in a learning phase, so unpleasant as it may no longer use its achievements and its previous experiences. Adherence to these conventions gives your visitors autonomy and ease in navigation and makes the experience more enjoyable. A few examples:
Do not call your home page "Square" (conventions of vocabulary)

Your logo must be in the top left (location conventions)

A link should change the mouse cursor in main (conventions of interaction and presentation)

5-Information
The site must be able to react to the actions of visitors and inform them. Although it inform your visitors the correct information at the right time with the right means.

6-Comprehension
The words and symbols chosen must fulfill their role properly and should be understandable. The use of user-oriented vocabulary is very important when you are targeting the general public. The use of words and phrases too technical or jokes that only you understand the meaning do not help your visitors.

7-Assistance
The assistance is to guide your users according to their needs and expectations at a specific time. This assistance may be made in various forms:

  • Using an explicit form of text
  • Visual aid by organizing general
  • Help through the affordances or the identification of actionable items


8-Error Handling
Plan from the design of your website error handling that your visitor may encounter. Many errors can be prevented by captions or labels of the fields. Many errors are made when filling out a form. There should be assistance and answer explicit and precise site informing visitors of his error and guiding in the action to be done to fix it.

9-Speed
The site must be designed to facilitate the visits of users by helping them go as soon as possible to find the desired information. Keep in mind that your visitors do not all have the same experience. The implementation of multiple systems to access the same content can be a good way if well designed and can help visitors experienced to go faster. The search engine should offer several levels of research, simple and advanced, for example. Also, avoid any action unnecessary or repetitive message.

10-Freedom of users
The user should always have a sense of control environment. Basic controls must not be changed or blocked, such as copy and paste or rewind the browser. Making the current user on your site is to give access and choice to undertake a number of actions, for example, a stop animation, lower the volume, if the site is prevent launch an external application.

11-Accessibility of your site
The site must be designed for maximum accessibility and, ideally, it must respect the conventions established by the WAI (Web Accessibility Initiative).
