Look at Your Site From the Users Perspective
Why are they there? What makes sense for them to see and to visit?
How do you link the classifieds. A simple text link can work,
as long as this fits in with the rest of your navigation. You
want to integrate the classifieds link so that is appears to be part
of your site. I like to tell people that we add content
to their web site. See if you can use this idea when you set up
your whole site.
Keep it Simple
Don't distract your visitors with too many options. Make your
site clear and simple to understand and navigate. A site map with links
to all the sections can be a great way to let users look around, but
don't make this your first page. Think of the first page that
visitors see as your only chance to keep them. Don't just give
them a "headline", tell them why your site is different, or
why they should stay and look around. "EPage
Network Classifieds" does not tell a visitor to stay, but
"Classifieds and Auctions: Best on the Web!" along with "The
Worlds Largest Auction and Classified Network" tells them that
this might be worth checking out.
Try not to get stressed out about things you cannot control, and do something
about that which you can control.
