Use C Navigation for Your Visitors - Advantages continued
(Page 4 of 4 )
Works for the novice too- C navigation is a system that has been developed while keeping the computer novice in mind. In fact, it is highly recommended that the navigation of any website always be tested on a new web browser who is not experienced in the field. Placing all important navigational tabs on the top, left and bottom section of a web page ensures that the browser will find the tabs regardless of his/ her experience on the Internet.
Allows the browser flexibility - C navigation allows the prospect visiting the site complete flexibility to move from one page to another without having to bother going through unwanted content. If a prospect is sold on the idea of buying the product, then simply navigating to the "buy now" section of the site is all that is required. There is no need to search through the entire web page to figure out how the product works, how one can ship it and other such unwanted information. The C navigation pattern does not force the web visitor to follow any one particular path, but lays out the entire plan of the website for the visitor's convenience. Depending on personal choice and need, the browser can go to any section of the website that he/she desires.
Caters to the visitor's attention span - Most web browsers suffer from what can be appropriately termed the 10-second attention span. If within ten seconds the browser is not catered to, the chances of him/her leaving your site are extremely high. The C navigation pattern ensures that the browser finds what is being sought immediately, since it is placed on all of the important sections of the site. So whether the browser looks on top, on the left or the bottom segment of the web page, he/she will be able to move on, onto the desired path.
C navigation is the mapping formula that works the best in the web world. A site that ignores this pattern might as well redirect the prospects to their competition's site instead.
