Great website navigation requires a great balancing act. You have to provide enough options that visitors can find the information they need but not so many that they become overwhelmed and frustrated.
This balance is also important for your search performance. Too many options mean little or no site hierarchal development that the search engines use in valuing pages and ranking content. But
you have to make sure the search engines can get to any page with as few jumps (clicks) as possible.
This checklist will help you achieve the right balance and conquer other important site navigation issues to make your site more user- and search engine-friendly.
