What is a menu?

Why does a web site need a simple menu?

What is a good menu?

To define the term menu is simple: A good website menu is a simple html menu that let's your visitors find all your site's web pages easily. It is a complete site directory or a table of contents of the individual pages on a web site. A site index is not a site map, but it gives web site users a good method for quickly navigating around a web site. One of the important features of a good menu, lets visitors know when they have already visited a specific web page. Each text link should change as the user visits that page. Making website navigation simple for your site users, is important in building a trusted website. Where am I and how do I find the right page ? are the two most common user complaints about business sites. Customers hate confusion. A good navigation menu is will also be an accessible menu and good seo requires a good menu design. A user friendly website provides a site index, with a link to the HOME PAGE clearly visible.
