How to Make Easy to Navigate Websites

There are probably millions if not billions of websites around the web these days, and not most of them are much pleasing to their viewers. Most of them are junk, some just around to tag some traffic and most are just there to take domain names which they can sell later on. If you are in the process or planning on putting up a website, you should have already looked for the right web hosting companies with good promos and discounts like a hostgator coupon code or fat cow coupon codewhich give you amazing cut on those certain company’s hosting services. You should also know that what really matters in a website, whether it’ll be personal or business is the accessibility and navigation. It is important that you make your website easy to navigate, since this is one of the factors that keep visitors from coming back.
Let us not focus on discussing the technical aspects on how you can improve the accessibility and user friendliness of your website, since there are simple ways to go about it and simple is always better. It’s not at all difficult to do the little things that make it so. You just have to make sure you do them properly.
The layout of your website should be visually the same throughout your other pages, at least the top part. The title area (website name), menu, and submenus also, the features you have on the sides should all be as much the same throughout your entire website regardless of what page it is in. this is important to help your visitors to easily navigate through your site, putting up too much variety in your website would make them feel lost and then they would go back to the home page to find other pages which is such a hassle.
Make use of the “alternate text” on your images. This is basically a description of the images or its function. Whenever you insert an image on a web page, most of the modern web design software, even the free ones, will give you an option to input alternate text. Why would you need to describe an image and why not just put it in the caption area? The reason is that with slow computers, images (especially large ones) take a while to load onto the screen. The alternate text will load first, telling the viewer what image is coming or is loading. This would tell the visitor if s/he would rather wait for the image or not.
