Navigation bar can help create good first impression for your users since they tend to scan your nav bar when they first arrive on your website. Navigation bar can help your visitors to engage. A good user experience is relatively connected with a good navigation bar. So, to create a good nav bar is of great importance to your website. Here we will give you some tips on how to create effective SEO navigation bar.

For example, you should use recognizable link labels that set a clear and accurate expectation for the page content. Be in a consistent location on every page. The navigation bar should provide visual cues that tell you what page you are on and where your cursor is and what pages you have visited and try to avoid self-referential links that only refresh the page you are on.

First of all, you are advised to use recognizable link lables that set a clear and accurate expectation for the page content. You should use simple and clear terms in your primary nav bar, like "Home" "About Us" "Products" and so forth. It can tell users what your site is doing for quickly and effectively.

Second, be in a consistent location on every page. Generally, the navigation bar should be on every page and should always include a link to the home page. However, not all sites meet this guideline actually.

Third, provide cues to tell you what page you are visiting now and where your cursor is and what pages you have visited. You will never feel lost with good visual cues. You can try the cursor movement reveals clue, visited link clue, and so forth. When making the clues, you are advised to take consideration of clarity and readability. You should ensure that the text is clear and readable.

Fourth, avoid active links that only refresh the page you are on or visiting. Although it is harder for you to implement, the links for the page you are currently on should be inactive and provide a cue that they are inactive. It helps indicate which page the visitor is currently on.

Fifth, it should be better if there are left or right side primary navigation bars actually. The left or right side nav bar can be regarded as vertical submenus when you hover over the primary nav bar link. Also you can create bread crumbs which are acceptable visual cue for complex sites since vertical submenus must disappear after making a selection.
