As a UX consultant, I always think what is better a regular menu or hamburger menu. In mobile version obviously but in desktop?

Let me explain the pros and cons:

The hamburger menu is an actual navigation element you can find on sites, landings, webs, apps, and programs. It’s a design of three horizontal lines. Is an icon and a button that typically opens a sider menu or navigation.

This is the hamburger menu: bread, hamburger and bread.  So, that’s why the name.

Hamburger menu

 

Let me share my thoughts:

 

PROS: These are a list of why use the hamburger menu:

 

  1. It’s SIMPLE and very clean.
    It’s easy to access to the navigational menu.
  2. It’s recognizable for users. People know that in a hamburger menu there is a navigational menu, so we are used to.
  3. It’s the other access. If you have a menu or other navigational items, the hamburger helps to add a new one.
  4. It uses for a mobile version.

 

CONS: These are a list of why NOT use the hamburger menu:

  1. Hidden navigation
  2. Make pages less important  and less effective
  3. Low engagement: the click rates go down and down…
  4. Two clicks is an extra step to get to the goal. To achieve the content you click twice.
  5. Not for a desktop version.

So, here my  recommendations,  as Nielsen Norman Group:

Hamburger menu Recommendations:

 

Desktop:

  • Do not use in desktop user interfaces

Mobile:

  • Use it if you have more than 4 level navigation links.
  • Provide footer with page links to important information on your site

Today we want to talk about a common error on websites. The 404 page.

What is 404 page?

404 page is an error, the Error 404.

Error 404 is an HTTP status code that means that page you are trying to access can not be found.

The 404 pages are very common in all the clients that we do consultancy SEO: Beter, AMT,

A picture speaks a thousand words.

An image of SEO must speak. In my last three works, I made different consultancies for customers and I detected the same issue: the images.

The images are always forgotten. And Google likes images and users also.

That’s a typical conversation:

  • “Send me an e-mail to barbara@ebavs.net”

In my last project: Transmitting Science, I worked conceptualizing a site development: wireframes, mockups and prototyping.

These 3 different words are so important and vital to start any digital project. Not always used the 3, many of the projects I’ve worked often use wireframes and mockups prototyped regardless of.

These 3 are very unknown and many customers, developers, designers and users do not understand the difference between the three. So I explain what they do.
