247 web usability guidelines to keep in mind while designing user interfaces.

The categories are:

  • Home page usability
  • Task orientation
  • Navigation and information architecture
  • Forms and data entry
  • Trust and credibility
  • Writing and content quality
  • Page layout and visual design
  • Search usability
  • Help, feedback and error tolerance

Most of these guidelines are obvious, but there is a benefit to working off a defined list because it's next to impossible to keep in mind all 247 guidelines as you brainstorm designs and features and functions for your project.
