UI i.e. User Interface is also a most important factor behind success of a website.If UI is not so friendly people will avoid using your website as much as they can. They will find an alternative to your website which is having easy UI than your website.Most of social networking sites differ from each other just because of UI. Some are performing very great due to simple UI where some are failing due to UI only.

So what we will do to analysis of our UI is we will track each thing. On which link element use is clicking. Facebook is doing the same thing if you have noticed it carefully.

If you visit homepage by Logo of facebook the URL home.php ends with ref=logo means it is passing value that referral is logo by GET method. If you visit homepage by clicking Home tab of menu , the homepage link will end by word ref=home.

You can do the same with  your site’s UI. This helps you to know which link or elements are easy for user and from that you can decide causing factor like look , size , position. You can rearrange the elements according to heat of clicks.

<?php

$host=”localhost”;
$user=”username here”;        // name of db user
$pwd=”your password”;    // pwd of db
$con=mysql_connect($host,$user,$pwd) or die(“can’t connect”);
mysql_select_db(“add databese name here”,$con) or die(“can’t find database”);

$track=trim($_GET['ref]);

if($track==’logo’)

{ //increment the value here for logo

}

else if($track==’home’)

{ //increment value for home tab here

}

?>

You can use one counter type system to track data. This will help you sure to improve your UI. After all UI is the thing which you present in front of all users. Happy Web Designing !
