The "HERE" Syndrome
The dreaded "HERE" Syndrome. Otherwise known as "CLICK HERE". This is one of the most used navigation confusion devices around the Internet. I must admit that I have fallen into this trap and there are probably still a few onsite still.

What this really is... when you create a text link to another page or site using saying "CLICK HERE". Doesn't really describe where the link goes does it? Unless you have a full description just ahead of it, the visitor is blindly clicking and trusting they will appear in the correct area.

<a href="ColorPage.html">Click Here</a>

The solution... For the linked text, either put in a description on where it is going or display the URL where it is going.

Please check out : <a href="ColorPage.html"> My Color Page </a>

My color page is located at :
<a href="ColorPage.html"> http://www.mydomain.com/ColorPage.html </a>

Giving your visitor a specific description or idea on where they are clicking to is part of a great site navigation system. It gives them confidence in where they are going which goes towards your site as well.
