2nd example – The menu below the content
3rd example – The menu in the right side of the content
4th example – The menu in the left side of the content
As you may have noticed I haven't mentioned anything about the title and the subtitle of each one of the web pages in your website. These two elements have also to do with the layout of your web pages and they must reside at the top of each page.
The truth is that you have only two options to choose from:
- The menu below the contentAnd this constraint has to do with the optimization procedure of your web page.
Remember which are the elements Search Engines use to extract the theme of a web page and measure the relevance of a web page regarding its theme?
They examine mainly the "metatags" in the "header" section of the web page and then they examine the first paragraphs in your web page starting from the top and moving from left to the right. It is much better for you search engines to find text to examine than to find links in a menu, which lies above the content or in the left side of it.
Both layouts are good.
Here are two examples of these two layouts:
First example - The menu below the content:
Go to http://www.free-work-at-home-job.com. See where the menu has been placed (in the yellow line at the bottom part of the page).
Second example below - The menu in the right side of the content:
Go to http://www.computer-work-at-home-job.com. You can easily spot the menu in the right side of the content.
Remember to keep the consistency in the layout of your pages. If your visitors loose time to understand how to navigate in your website, they won't have time to read the content. From the very first moment a visitor comes to your website, no matter the web page he is entering from, you must train him to navigate himself easily through your web pages. Your website must look like a newspaper. He must understand quickly the layout of the web pages. Where is the menu placed, where is the link to the home page. Where is the link to your email address, where is the content. And he must also understand that the layout is the same in all pages, so he can move fast.
