  • This is wrong. Not science. Not even close. I can show just as many sites with centred logos - none of those here or what I can find showing something different makes any proof. Who say there is only two options: left or centred? How about placing it to the right side? Not even mentioned. Or how about integrate the logo in the way the site is build, so it is not colliding with the menu in any way? That Nielsen say a centred logo hurts navigation just show they don't look into how menus are placed today. In some sites I am sure it can hurt navigation, but do that make any proof? Sorry. This not useful. 6 years ago
  • Why would putting it in the center be hard to find? a lot of websites do that 6 years ago
  • I find this interesting, however Nielsen research on this did not consider Intranets, Extranets, or other mediums of delivery. In addition it was more speculation then fact based as they really never clarified if this was a real effect, or just the fact it was what people were accustomed. The study also only used 50 users, and we have no idea of there persona's or demographics. So quoting this as fact is a pretty big leap, not knowing if the folks are your customer base. The research seems limited to more global brands who are trying to keep to the classical way of web design. I have found that yes keeping to traditional placement is easier for the user, however this does not take into consideration mobile, tablet, installments, or many other ways we are now engaging consumers. Marc, thanks for the points, and pointing out where you got your research. 6 years ago
