site navigation

In many ways, good web design is good navigation. When we say that a site is well-designed, or that it works well, what we usually mean is that it has excellent, intuitive navigation.

Navigation is the visual expression of a site’s structure, and it’s the basic problem that must be solved, in the course of designing a site. It’s no small problem. Unlike magazines, or stores, or products in the physical world, web sites are abstract: The user has no way of intuitively sensing the scope of your site or where they are within it. (See how people navigate the web, p. 111.)
