What Is UX? Who Owns User Experience Optimization? What You Need to Know About SEO & User Satisfaction from #SEOchat was originally published on BruceClay.com, home of expert search engine optimization tips.

What is UX?

User experience (UX) is the web design and marketing concept concerned with satisfying the user in their every interaction with a brand’s website and products. Attention to UX spans all aspects of digital marketing, including images and videos, design, website architecture and content.

When we hosted #SEOChat last week, we immediately knew what we wanted to talk about: user experience. It’s an integral part of digital marketing, and something we can never pay too much attention to.


UX + Star Wars = Winning #SEOchat

Digital marketing bellwethers including Duane Forrester, Lisa Buyer, Casie Gillette, Robert Ramirez, Michelle Robbins, Virginia Nussey, Eric Lander, Jason White and Bill Slawski showed up to talk UX. We were also delighted to have Kim Krause Berg — the veritable UX whisperer — join us for the chat.

“I was pleased to see that many SEOs place a high value on user experience for all devices, and that they understood why … I’m thrilled that Bruce Clay, Inc. is educating people on UX,” Berg said post-chat. “UX is HUGE …  it includes empathy for every human, using every device and every software application and every search engine wanting to provide what humans want, in every environment, with an understanding of the limitations of age, bandwidth, Internet availability, use cases and business requirements specific to one’s business or web page intent.”
