A lost visitor is a gone visitor...

Navigation should be really simple.
  • Make the navigation bar available on every page.
  • Keep the navigation bar in the same place on every page.
  • Make sure links are described using unambiguous terms. It's better to be clear than clever.
  • Make the home page link really obvious (allows visitors to "start over").
  • Don't assume visitors know there's a back button on their browsers, i.e. no dead ends.
  • Avoid dynamic navigation bars where links change based on the page the visitor is on. Consistency avoids confusion.
