The City of Seattle’s main Web site has been redesigned to improve public access to City services. See www.seattle.gov. Upgrades include
- Streamlining the interface to five portals, instead of nine;
- Improving access to information based on feedback from the first Seattle.Gov usability study ever done;
- An increased social media presence;
- More direct access to the most used city Web pages.
The focus of the redesign was to simplify access to city services online. The City web site includes more than 150,000 pages, the top 700 of which are linked to five main portals: Business in Seattle, Living in Seattle, Visiting Seattle, City Services, and City Departments. There are now 23 percent fewer links on the homepage – down 24 from 106.
