           .....THIS WEEK'S ARTICLE.....


        KEEP YOUR WEBSITE NAVIGATION SIMPLE!
        ====================================

  By Merle 

  Whatever the reason you have for building a Web
  Site, they all have one thing in common, that is 
  to convey information to millions of Web Surfers 
  in an easy to follow path. 
  
  This article will help to ensure your visitors
  find just what they need by supplying easy to
  follow navigation. Now my telling you a few tips
  on clean navigation won't help you if your site is
  at a loss for quality information. Content is
  King, navigation second.

  Web Surfers are always in a hurry, that we know,
  and you don't want to take the risk of upsetting
  them as soon as they enter your site by burying
  content so deep within your site they can't find
  what they are looking for. Don't make them guess
  where they need to go, instead lead them right to
  it.

  ===================================================
  !!! BOOST YOUR WEBSITE TRAFFIC TO AMAZING LEVELS !!!

  Visit GetHits, the number one source for website 
  submission! To submit your site to up to 500 search 
  engines and directories, go to this URL:

  ===================================================

  Navigation bars which are a simple set of buttons
  or text, should be repeated on every page in the
  site, usually at the top,left, or bottom. Make
  sure you locate them in the same place on every
  page, consistency is key. If your page scrolls
  down more than 1 1/2 screen views you might want
  to add simple text navigation to the very bottom
  so they don't have to scroll back to the top to
  make another selection.

  It's also a good idea to let people know exactly
  where they are at the given moment. You can
  accomplish this by having the button for the page
  they are on slightly altered in appearance, for
  example dimmed or highlighted or another color.

  Every navigation bar should include a home page
  button, contact information, and if your site is
  large an index page or a site map.  A site map
  will show a complete outline of the site. Search
  capabilities are another good idea and allow
  people to conduct a one or two word search of your
  site and get back a possible list of pages.

  Make sure you keep everything consistent and
  organized from page to page. Don't worry so much
  about fancy backgrounds and Java Applets you don't
  want to make a site so technological advanced that
  your guests have to download plug ins just to view
  it, or wait forever while a Java Applet loads.

  Instead concentrate on the organization of
  information in a simple easy to follow format,
  and your site will become bookmarked on everyone's
  favorite list.
