What is website navigation? To determine the effectiveness of a website, one of the most crucial elements is Website navigation. If the links of a website are not obvious and hard to figure out then the web surfers will never click away to return.
Here are some basic guidelines… All the navigational elements must be clearly linked by using standard conventions like menus, buttons, changing color on mouse or underlining the text. If there is any non conventional link then tell the visitor explicitly that this is a link. It is required to maintain the “Three click rule”. Most of the users doesn’t click more than three links to get their desired information. So make sure that every page of a website should be reachable within three clicks. Make the web page simple yet attractive. Do not use more flash movies and other type of splash pages.
