Future or Past?
Most people confuse responsive navigation with mobile-friendly navigation. If you are here to find out how to design or code a responsive navigation – this article will help you:
A couple years ago a huge discussion around responsive navigation fascinated the word of SEO and web development.
But what is a responsive navigation? It is when the navigation of a website is subject to change based on user behavior. Imagine you as a user type in “men’s business shoes” on Google and click on the most promising URL, which happens to be the website of a popular fashion brand. When you land on that website, why should you also see “Yoga Pants” and “Purses”, right? Imagine that a smart website would know that you came from that search above and all in a sudden the menu navigation would change to “Casual Business Shoes”, “Classic Business Shoes” and “Comfortable Business Shoes”. It is still a great idea, but until today, the whole discussion never reached public attention. We will see and watch this development. In the meantime, this is a reminder for us: web development is always subject to change due to new trends.
