Websites that are easy to navigate

Web Content Management System - Information Architecture Management

If a website is to be used to its full potential, users must find it easy to use and easy to navigate. It's human nature for people to dismiss things that are difficult or don't make sense at a glance. The big question for any organisation considering their website strategy is to consider the structural or navigational barriers that may impede maximum website utilisation.
