What Factors Create ‘Stickiness’ for the Website?

Stickiness is defined as the time spent on a website, page, or app. And the factors that play into that are varied. We have talked about a few in some of the Questions and Answers here. Usability, Responsiveness, Navigation, Content and more. Here we can also talk about the images and videos being used to convey your messaging. They need to be doing their jobs by being pertinent to the content contained within, but also not be a hindrance to the user experience. Thus, the sizes, loading times, and cache-ability of each graphic or video need to be considered when placing them on the website. Also, don’t forget (which most do) the utilization of the name of the graphic and the alt text description can be useful in the experience and the indexing of your site with Google.
