Mistakes in Information Mapping Also Apply to Web Content Mistakes

You can apply these principles to web page design when it comes to text.  For instance, the ‘chunking principle’ describes how people ‘scan’ web pages for headings and ‘chunks of information’.  Short paragraphs and bullet points help readers fine info quickly.  Poorly written block labels; this translates to incorrect heading tags (h1,h2, etc..) or no headings at all.  Principles of technical writing can also apply to web content writing: clear and concise wording in plain English with content and language the reader or user will understand.
