When using a website, usability is about effective visitor guidance with the aim of providing the visitor with the desired information as quickly as possible or, as in e-business, leading the visitor to a conversion that is completed, for example, with a purchase in an online store. The better the user experience, the more likely a visitor will be to convert and the more products or services will be sold.
