  13. Response to today's blog post: What makes or breaks a site?

    The overall quality of a website can depend on a variety of factors, including the ease of navigation through the site, as difficulty would make the provided information unuseful. The quality of the information itself matters as well, as an uninformative website provides no assistance to the viewer. The properties of organization, useful links, as well as updated information are also crucial to a website's success, as they are what invest the reader in the site.
