Once a person gets to a website, if they intend on visiting multiple pages, or the website designer intends on their visitors doing this, there must be proper navigation. While many website owners may place a focus on overall design and appearance, along with the content on each and every page, navigation is something that should not be forgotten, and wisely so. Doing this can be a challenge to a novice website owner, which makes professional assistance with Sarnia Website Design very useful.
Stick with a Single Navigational Bar
If a visitor does not know how to get around on your website, they may never get a chance to see the excellent content produced. Additionally, an exceptional design only goes so far when you are not able to retain visitors or get what you want or need from them. It is important to stick with a single navigation bar as this will avoid any confusion coming from your readers.
Avoid Clutter with a Dropdown Feature
In a situation where you have more categories than room to fit on a single navigational bar, you should utilize the feature that will fix this problem, a dropdown feature. It is an excellent way to categorize your navigation into several sections that make sense, but it also allows you to have dozens of categories without exceeding the available space that you have to use.
Pick a Color that Makes It Stand Out
Making your navigational bar as effective as it can and should be is a challenge. Fortunately, an excellent step to accomplishing this goal is going with contrasting colors. Although you may think that it is better to mesh your website, you will find that a contrasted navigation actually brings out the visibility more, which directs people to your navigation. While it should be fairly easy for a visitor to determine where your content is, navigation between sites can be rather unique, and this is why directing them to the right place can be so helpful.
