Ensure your navigation structure is not a spaghetti design, again apply common sense. The ease and clarity of your navigation of a website is important in helping visitors quickly find the content they want, and search engines understand what content the owner thinks is important. Use text links for navigation around your site as text links make it easier for search engines to crawl and understand your site. Create the navigation structure based on your home page and make sure the menu titles are relevant to the content of the page, like the contents under the SEO menu pertain to SEO and not insects from the Danube delta, if you get my drift. The sitemap is very important both for the search engine which trawls your site and users who can see the navigation of your site, the search engine will need an XML file and you can create a HTML file for the visitor. You should also create meaningful 404 page leading back to the home page and with further info, so if the visitor types to visit an non existent page they are no left stranded. Make use of Breadcrums in they site design so the visitor knows where they are and how to get back to the home page and sub-pages.
