Users are accustomed to using a variety of methods of finding content on websites. Many users prefer search, others prefer navigation menus, and some prefer to use a sitemap. For some users the choice might be determined by a particular feature’s ease of use. For example, users with disabilities might find it easier to use a search box than to operate a navigation menu. To address the needs of all users, multiple means should be provided for finding content on your website.
Website owners should choose two or more of the following features to use on their websites:
- Navigation menu
- Search feature
