Setup a good website navigation structure

Website navigation structure is important, a good and organised website structure not only helps the website visitors to find information within your website easier, it can also help search engines to find and index the web pages too.

You can view a website as a library of books and the navigation structure is the library's catalog system that helps readers to find the sections the are interested, further locate the book title they are looking for and then hit direct to the rack. A good navigation structure will save a lot of time for readers to get the info needed.

Some search engine optimization tips, use only HTML codes and CSS to format your navigation URLs instead of using fancy javascripts or flash menus, search engines ignore content within javascripts and do not parse inner flash content, if you have your website navigation structure in javascripts or flash menu, you are basically hiding your web pages from search engines and make it difficult for search engines to index your web pages.
