It seems we have discussed enough of web design service but still there is always something new or may be a different prospect of a thing, looking to this today we are going to discuss about the importance of navigation in entire website design as all those end users are keen to browse through website to get information, if they feel it difficult or annoying to locate any of information they are looking for they are more likely to leave your website and will never try to come back again. This may leave a bad impression in your end users mind, so here the best thing is to make sure you consider all those aspects which might improve end users experience. Though each websites are different and have their own specific purpose, some may be involved in sharing information whereas some may be involved in direct selling of their products or service. All such websites should be considered accordingly.
Let us discuss some of basic guidelines which should be considered by those website designers to design better websites:
All such navigation links should be placed either at top of the menu or may be at the sidebar where the visibility level is high. Make sure to include some relevant text in menu button, about what those Navigation links are meant for. This way of navigation may be considered as a conventional method but if you are suppose to use unconventional method where you are to place some typical box in terms of quick navigation near the sidebar, by which you are to provide all those products or service links by selecting different possible combination from drop down menu here you should always make sure to inform end users about how those quick navigation works. This way you save their considerable time in trial and error.
Even when it comes to navigation there is some thumb rules of “Three click Rule”, here there is belief that end users never will try to click more than three links to get what he is look for. Thus it is very much necessary to design the entire navigation structure accordingly. Well while talking about the navigation I should definitely include breadcrumbs technique of navigation else my talk will be considered as incomplete. Basically breadcrumbs are those, in which a combination of text and graphical presentation is placed above the beginning of body section, it is place at top left corner of a page. Each word is a link back to previous page, which better helps you to judge where you are currently located in website. Let us look to an example of how breadcrumb navigation looks like
