Presentation of information on the site
I am addressing the blog's readers for a word of advice on how to lay out information on our site. With time, besides PVS-Studio code analysis program product we are developing and selling, www.viva64.com site has included articles and a blog for programmers, presentations/demonstrations/booklets about PVS-Studio code analyzer and solid information traditional for corporate sites.
As a result, on entering the site, one may simply not know what other materials it contains. And even if one is interested in these materials, he or she won't be able to notice them.
We learned this from analyzing the Google Analytics' statistics. As a solution we created several special pages called "guides on the site". On these pages, we wrote in common text what our site contains and gave a lot of links. It seems to us that in this way it will be easier for our visitors to understand what we have on the site.
For example, here we have a guide on the site for 64-bit application developers. And the main page with other guides is here.
Tell us if you do understand what our site contains after reading the guides' texts. Are there any other means to present navigation information on the site? What recommendations and notes can you give?
