Considering following site architecture, where each category has multiple products inside it:
/Home /About /Products/Category 1 /Products/Category 2 /Products/Category 3 /Products/Category 4 /Services /Blog /Contact
What is the optimal way to display this as horizontal-navigation with user behavior in mind?
Should the main navigation only show the very top-level directories? Therefore, "Products" would link to a page with sub-navigation links to each category. (Each category page would then contain links to products.)
Or should the division of categories be visible right away in the navigation? Thus, through a drop-down menu on rollover (and something else for mobile). In this case, the "Products" could still link to a landing page as above (e.g. in case the rollover doesn't work).
