  • For readability of textual information. I'm sorry, I can not express it. I think you understand :)

It depends whether the sidebar is related to the header or not.

In your first example, the sidebar seems to be related to the title.

In your second example, the sidebar seems to be an independent sidebar.

Take a look at the Gestalt principles. They can give you some clue about how you can arrange your page to give the correct impression of the underlying structure. Also lots of examples here on UX.SE.

  • "It depends whether the sidebar is related to the sidebar or not." - don't you mean "It depends whether the sidebar is related to the content or not." ?

    @L.Möller Thanks! Should have been "related to the header". Commented Dec 2, 2013 at 15:13
