SO here is my discussion.
Good web site design means a good navigation structure for your web site. This means the visitor can find the information easily and they stay long time. Few steps for navigation structure.
Navigation Styles: these can range from navigation buttons, navigation bars, plain text links, fancy animated graphics or drop-down select menus. Use illustrations, photographs or graphic images to show your visitor around. For example, an image map contains one graphic with different “hot spots” (invisible buttons) that link to other pages.
Primary and Secondary Navigation. Primary navigation consists of the navigation elements that are accessible from most locations within the site. Secondary navigation elements allow the user to navigate within a specific location. For example, many sites have a page that offers information about the company. The primary navigation element may be an About Us link.
How to Guided Navigation: This is a popular technique, in which you guide the visitor
through your site. Links are provided for the next step and establishing links that keep the users on track continues the process.
Creating a Navigation Action Plan: Before creating navigation structure determines goals and needs of your audience need what the purpose of your site is and who your target audience will be.
