The position of the navigation bar is very important for the visitors of your website.
Some effective webdesign rules for navigation:
- The navigation has to be clearly visible and accessible, preferably at the top of the page.
- The navigation has to be consistent, this means the menu has to appear on all pages, at the same location.
- The titles (navigation names) have to be short and understandable.
- The button corresponding to the actual (active) page has to be clearly selected.
