What to place in the content area

This area contains the main topic of your website. The content area provides the page name, the content and an update date. Large sites also provide breadcrumb navigation, jump-to-top links and paging navigation on the content area.

What’s the page name?

Page names are the street signs of the Web. Every page needs a clear and unique page name. It should be prominent and frame the rest of the content.

Where to place it?
Place the page name at the top of the content area. Use a different size, colour and typeface to make it clear that it’s the heading for the entire page.
