# Web navigation should be persistent and consistent

Effective website navigation helps navigating non-psychical space. Given that the users will be moving from one page to another, the navigation should also be persistent and look the same throughout their journey.

Just having the navigation appear in the same place on every page with a consistent look gives you instant confirmation that you're still in the same site - which is more important than you might think. And keeping the same throughout the site means that (hopefully) you only have to figure out how it works once.
