    Website Navigation, or, How to Make or Break Your Website

    (Page 1 of 4 )

    Hopefully, you have basic idea of what you want out of your website. The next step is to put it into some sort of order.Where do we start and where do we finish? It is a simple question, but the answer takes a lot of perspective and planning.

    Assuming that you know what you want to include on your website, a simple organizational chart can put the layout into some semblance of order.

    "Home" page is the front door or gateway into your website. One way or another we got the customer/client to open that door and come in. Now that they have taken that first step, we cannot afford to lose them due to confusion and not knowing where to go next.

    A simple, uncomplicated flow of traffic from your major categories, to your sub-categories and from there, to each of your adjacent or lower levels makes it easy for the non-technical (and that happens to be most internet surfers), to get around your website and not become confused. On top of going from one category to the next, they must be able to maneuver with ease within each of those categories. You want to direct them to where, you want them to go next and not be jumping all over the place.
