What is information scent?
Sometimes you see a link and you are dead sure you know what information youâ€™ll see when you click on it â€“ other links you just havenâ€™t got a clue. When you are searching for information and have a specific goal the extent to which you can predict what you will find if you follow a certain path and links through a site is called the â€˜Information Scentâ€™.
Usability testing â€“ how many users should we test?

Using active voice for web copy
