Haoyu Wang, Mengxin Liu, Yao Guo, Xiangqun Chen
2014 Proceedings of the 23rd international conference on World wide web - WWW '14  
Experiments on webpages of various websites show that the proposed technique can speed up the webpage loading process by up to 68% and reduce the redundant style calculations by up to 77% for the first  ...  visit to a webpage with almost negligible overhead.  ...  Any webpage can be attributed to a specific directory.  ...

Internet-based research for the desktop and beyond: Building a foundation of excellence for information design on the web

S. Rush, S. Halko, B. Masker, E. Cuddihy, J. Halko, K. Mobrand, J. Spyridakis
2009 2009 IEEE International Professional Communication Conference  
The internet has become a primary vehicle for delivering information, but the online platforms used to access that information are constantly shifting.  ...  The need to develop a set of effective best practices for web design, based on empirical research, becomes even more critical as people migrate from desktops to mobile browsing.  ...  For example, if the goal of a webpage is to inform the reader on a topic, an experiment would need to specifically define the user action(s) that could indicate success.  ...

Alexiei Dingli, Sarah Cassar
2014 Advances in Human-Computer Interaction  
However, simply owning a website is not enough for a business to prosper on the Web.  ...  Indeed, it is the level of usability of a website that determines if a user stays or abandons it for another competing one.  ...  are also significant for this task.  ...

Revisiting graph neural networks and distance encoding from a practical view [article]

Haoteng Yin, Yanbang Wang, Pan Li
2020 arXiv   pre-print
Specifically, for link prediction, DE can be viewed as a way to establish correlations between a pair of node representations.  ...  Here, we revisit GNNs and DE from a more practical point of view. We want to explain how DE makes GNNs fit for node classification and link prediction.  ...  Nodes represent for webpages regrading specific topics or actor personals, and edges denote mutual links between pages or co-occurrence in the same page.  ...

Will this search end up with booking? Modeling airline booking conversion of anonymous visitors

Misuk Lee
2020 Revista de Análisis Turístico  
The dynamic Markov chain model provides a systematic framework to predict online search, revisit and booking conversion and the time of the online activities.  ...  Originality/value This study presents both theoretical and managerial implications of online search and booking behavior for airline and tourism marketing.  ...  Yeo et al. (2020) specifically investigated revisit customers' purchase conversion. They developed product-level and customer-level models for conversion predictions and predictability.  ...

A Comparative Eye Tracking Study of Usability—Towards Sustainable Web Design

Mihai Țichindelean, Monica Teodora Țichindelean, Iuliana Cetină, Gheorghe Orzan
2021 Sustainability  
The study analyzed the behavior of 22 participants during their interaction with five different landing pages while they performed three tasks on the webpage and freely viewed each page for one minute.  ...  Even if a user's past experience influences their experience on a website, we show that the design of the webpage itself has a greater influence on webpage usability.  ...  This finding could be valuable for personalized online services: in an ideal case where the regular activity of a customer on the website is known, his visual behavior on the webpage would be easy to predict  ...

Electrophysiological correlates of aesthetic processing of webpages: a comparison of experts and laypersons

Jens Bölte, Thomas M. Hösker, Gerrit Hirschfeld, Meinald T. Thielsch
2017 PeerJ  
In a time-window of 110–130 ms after stimulus onset, aesthetic webpages elicited a more negative EEG-amplitude than unaesthetic webpages.  ...  We investigated whether design experts or laypersons evaluate webpages differently. Twenty participants, 10 experts and 10 laypersons, judged the aesthetic value of a webpage in an EEG-experiment.  ...  Aesthetics has an impact on various constructs: for example, perceived usability, credibility, satisfaction, preference, urge to buy impulsively, or intention to revisit (for overviews see Lee & Koubek  ...

Implicit bookmarking: Improving support for revisitation in within-document reading tasks

Chun Yu, Ravin Balakrishnan, Ken Hinckley, Tomer Moscovich, Yuanchun Shi
2013 International Journal of Human-Computer Studies  
After showing that dwell time and number of visits are not appropriate for predicting revisitations in documents, we model the high-level reading task as a sequence of reading blocks and recognize long-distance  ...  We explore improving support for revisitation in documents by automatically generating bookmarks based on users' reading history.  ...  We explore this approach using an algorithm that predicts revisitations based on a user's reading history within a specific document.  ...

User experience with web browsing on small screens: Experimental investigations of mobile-page interface design and homepage design for news websites

Nan Yu, Jun Kong
2016 Information Sciences  
We found that the designs for mobile news pages and the structures for website homepages can have a significant impact on perceived ease of use, reading time, and the overall reading experience.  ...  Based on the evaluation results and the analysis of the current interface design for popular mobile news websites, we developed two important guidelines for mobile news websites: 1) the single-page design  ...  Perceived ease of operation (β = .31, p = .028) and perceived interactivity (β = .42, p = .003) significantly predicted the intention to revisit the webpages using the same device.  ...

Indirect assessment of web navigation success

Jacek Gwizdka, Ian Spence
2005 CHI '05 extended abstracts on Human factors in computing systems - CHI '05  
We present two exploratory studies designed to explore the relationships between several web navigation metrics that are based on similarity to an optimal path to predict task success.  ...  The data suggest that the relationships between these measures depend on the particular web navigation task.  ...  Examples of goal-directed tasks include searching for a specific fact, a specific document, or information about a specific product.  ...
