Navigation - the heart of any website

Customers should clearly see the path from your website entrance to the product they are looking for. If this path is not simple and obvious, customers will get lost and your store's bounce rate will increase. It's enough to use clear and modern Magento navigation to increase revenue, because user-friendly websites become favorite and are used more often.
