Content – Use Multiple Ways to Find Content

Some users may start at your home page and see where the links take them, while others may use your menu structure, while still others will use a search feature.

You need to provide at least two ways to navigate your site.

The possibilities include the following.

  • Include a menu system to allow users to navigate to major sections of your site.
  • Include links on each page that explicitly take you to the next and previous page within your site. This is very helpful on a blog or a educational site.
  • Include a set of links, or a menu, at the bottom of each page that will take you to pages within your site that are related to it.
  • Include a site map.
  • Include a search function.
  • Include a table of contents in content page(separatefrom the site main menu) that links to the major sections of the page.
