    Great Article also menu bars, either horizontally or vertically, are the most common factors of allowing users to move through your site.

    Your visitors need to easily be able to navigate around your site; if not they might get frustrated and leave. Also when your website is easy to navigate around visitors are more likely to return to finish reading certain articles that they were interested in, but didn’t have time to read. Search engines also look at how easy your website is to navigate when they send their spiders in to crawl your site.

    A more easily navigable site could help your search engine ranking, which we are trying to get.
