Navigation

Your website's navigation is visible at the top of each page. It should act as a menu for your website, showing a clear and direct route to the information that a user may be searching for.

Don’t make the navigation menu too detailed, as this could be confusing to look at. Not all pages need to be linked to from the navigation. Show just the main sections of your website and their most used pages.
