HOMEPAGE SEARCH

Increasing user engagment on search module


Engagement with the global navigation was tracking low. During routine user testing on the Zoopla property site, it was noted that users found it difficult to navigate through the site. A project was kick started to optimise the global navigation to make it easier for users to find content.

Our objectives were (1) Increase engagement of global navigation (2) optimise the dropdown menu with options for users to find content within the site (3) add more of the Zoopla branding to the top header (at request of Marketing)

Outcome: With the additional content in the dropdown menu along with the bold Zoopla purple brand colour, users reacted positively to the new navigation. We had an increase of 47% engagement with the rollout of the new navigation.
