One of the most important steps of a website design process is determining how you will organize your content.
When doing a facelift to an existing website, we often encounter sites that have 10, 15… even 20 or more navigation choices listed on the site. This creates confusion for website visitors, requiring people to waste a lot of time reading long lists.
Your goal should be to consolidate your content into no more than seven top-level navigation sections. Each of these top level sections can have sub-pages… even sub-sub-pages… but even with tens of thousands of pages, you should be able to organize your content into seven sections or less.
One good example is The White House. The largest bureaucracy in the world, they still have organized their enormous website into seven sections.
