A good navigation menu not only ensures that site visitors can easily walk through a website going but also ensures that a website can be used by search engines. Indexed

A good navigation structure satisfies a number of factors that a web designer should take when designing and developing a website.

- For example, the website visitor can almost always come. Every page on the website with up to two 'clicks'

- It should clear up the menu, with main headings and sub sections.

- The navigation menu should be be from flat hyperlinks and be an ALT text. Least in the case of images provided by search engines so constructed, preferably indexable The use of Flash technology behind as a navigation menu is also true that there is a 'flat' menu version should be added for search engines.

- Research has shown that website visitors a "scan" in the form of an 'F'. That is, the user starts at the top of the page, then the left-hand side view, and in the end only look at the center of the screen. Since a navigation menu is an important part of the clarity, must be proportionate. This menu at the top or on the left side of a page Placement menu on the right side or bottom of a page involves a risk of missing the menu and from the standpoint of web design so a definite "do not".

Designing a menu system for a site should not be a difficult task, as long as you follow a few key points:

Make it available on all pages in the same spot, so that it is consistent. Generally, this means placement at either the top or the left.

Make it available to all styles of browsers, so that ALL visitors can use it. This means if you insist on using images or Flash in the menu, it MUST also be available in straight HTML as well. TEST THE MENU THOROUGHLY!!!

Make it logical - spend some time deciding where elements of each menu belong. Products and services should have an appropriate main heading, etc.
