I don't have the research but in my own experience (also opinion) it gives the user a reference and easier recognition of the nav or tertiary content to main content. Even more important I believe on the side of UX; a visual hierarchy and focus to the main by giving a darker, to less dark nav and tertiary controls, to light main areas gives the user a ...

EDIT: I realized that my answer is much like Stephen Keable's. Don't know how I missed his! Will you only have users from US and UK? I'm from Sweden and my address neither contain a province nor a state. If this is a webform you could do a geo IP detection to detect the country and then use this information to automatically change the form. If for some ...

Rather than using the Checkbox to decide, could you perhaps initially show just a country drop down. Which after selecting shows the other fields and appropriate labels for the selected country. Try this fiddle for an example You could even pre select the country option based on IP address (with ability to override). I would also recommend using drop ...

dThe first rule of navigation is that when you hide information, its usability declines precipitously. This rule becomes exaggerated when we are talking about navigation clicks (mobile) as opposed to hovers (desktop). So the TL;DR version is - no it's not a very good idea in most cases. Let's start easy - where is it okay to have deep nesting, even in ...

If I am correct in understanding your question, you want to avoid users from downloading content only to realize after download that its the same. The concept of visited links has been around from a very long time. In today's world with greater browser capabilities, devices becoming more personal and the ability of cookies to store lot more defaults you ...

Looking at your hierarchy tree I'd say that it could be easily transfered over to a similar hierarchy that is used in the Google Play app. There you have a Home with in line entry points to the Main areas (Eg. Apps, Games, Music, etc..). Under each Main area you have tabs to list content within that area in different fashions (Eg. Categories, Best ...

Short Answer: They never intersect, as described, at a single "hail mary" point. They are different elements of the same process and should coexist together as part of that process. In the cases where one may be dependent on the other, the most ideal situation is that Information Architecture would guide the Software Architecture. Long Answer: When you ...

I have met, designed and prefer the first option where you separate the two sites, especially for back-end it's a clear division (less misunderstandings will occur between you and tech in development phase). However in communication it has to be in the first contact for both B2C & B2B: -home page: if you communicate both the user will understand that ...

Your suggestions c and d are closest to the mark. Your primary goal of avoiding duplicate content is a good one. Having repetitive sections on three important pages will compromise their ability to individually rank for any given keyword, and there's also the UX angle - once a reader realizes sections are duplicate they'll start to ignore them, and possibly ...

There are a number of methods you could use in order to make sure the navigation works. First you could do a tree test to make sure that you really are having a navigation problem since you say that you have just heard it. You could also do a classic task-based usability study on the site design to be sure that it's no a interface problem. You could ...

If you're having trouble defining the categories, maybe it's because they don't exist. Categories are only useful when they will be obvious to the users of your site--in which case they would probably be obvious to you, as well. Think of the grocery store. If you want lettuce, you know to head for produce. If you want ground beef, you know to go to the ...

Another option is the following scheme: Location Tabs List of all opportunities for that location w/ search controls to display only one kind of opportunity or a combination of a few.

If I were using the quote tool, I'd want it to work the way you're describing. The main focal point (correct me if I'm wrong) is the camera quantity. Let me choose the number of cameras, then show me a list of compatible DVRs.
