Hot Yahoo Got a Facelift

When Yahoo! Inc. embarked on a massive redesign of its front page last year, just about every department at the company suddenly had an opinion. As expected, conflict arose. While Sales would want to place ads front and center, Yahoo's Mail department would dispute this idea by explaining how that could potentially cannibalize their business. To avoid design by committee, Yahoo deferred almost every decision to an impartial judge: data generated by users' clicks.

The Face Begins to Wrinkle
The Yahoo front page causes a ripple effect throughout Yahoo and is a very important driver of revenue for the company. As such, getting the home page right is crucial for a portal like Yahoo, especially since the company's advertising revenue has been slowing. Consequently, Yahoo made a commitment to improving the usability on the front page in an effort to drive business.

The Procedure
Throughout the redesign, the company used a blend of focus groups, one-on-one interviews, test pages, and data mining. From this, it was revealed that what people said they wanted, wasn't what they actually clicked on. For example, in focus groups, users consistently said they wanted serious world news, but when Yahoo studied users' clicks, world news got little attention while pages on pop culture were among the most heavily trafficked.

The Final Result
Mixed messages led to important insights, and, in the end, Yahoo kept world news prominent on the front page because users felt secure knowing that it's easily accessible, even if they don't often click on it. Eye-catching placement also went to entertainment, but was balanced with other areas of interest such as finance. But perhaps the best feature of the redesign was the Personal Assistant, which lets users hover their pointers over icons to see preview boxes of content such as email.

The Maintenance

Although Yahoo's front-page redesign is finished, the testing is not. In fact, testing at Yahoo is part of their DNA and there is always test running. The company is devoted to continual improvement for the best user experience possible as well as the greatest revenue gain.
