Study Q170030. Menu Options
Question -
There has been a great deal of controversy recently about the optimal length of menus on web pages.

Some people argue that shorter menus with few general options, are better because they are easier to scan. Others argue that longer menus are better because they include more options and therefore allow for a more accurate selection.

In general terms, what do you think is the optimal size of a menu?

3870343The answer could also be "10 or more" depending on the amount and the diversity of information on the web site. I think efficient categorization is very important.PeggyGreeceF43

3870032i do not agree that there is such a thing of the optimal length of menus on web pages. as the web is so huge, n hugely different, a small company selling only dozens of handmade toys, a restaurant, a large supermarket, a giant international company like apple or bp or amazon..... it does not make sense to me to talk about an optimal length of menus on web pages for them......GaryAustraliaM59
