Enticing Users with Content
Christine Perfetti writes about where to feature advertisements and promotions. While most of us don't have ads, we do often have content that's important to a director or dean that they want to see featured. Is the home page the place to do that?
The 8 Types of Navigation Pages
Jared Spool details what he sees as the eight types of pages that direct users. He goes into more detail about what he calls galleries at Galleries: The Hardest Working Page on Your Site.
Here are what I see as examples of the types. These are just pages I'm familiar with. I wouldn't claim them to be the best (or worst) examples.
Academics : University of Minnesota, Twin Cities
University of Minnesota, Twin Cities
I guess that means all of us must belong to one of the following "stores": Academics, Admissions, Arts & Culture, Community Connections, Employment, Health & Medical, Libraries & Computers, Research & Scholars, Sports & Recreation, U of M Administration
Gallery-level Search Results
Search Results: University of Minnesota
Department-level Search Results
The free Google search doesn't allow for this. I'm not familiar with any such search results at the U.
Search Entry Page
People Search : University of Minnesota, Twin Cities (This is actually the main search page.)
Home Page (Landing pages)
MInnesota - A Great Place to Live
I'd be really interested in knowing which pages at the U you consider to be the best of each of these types.Posted by bullwink at December 1, 2005 12:36 PM
