What goes into your sidebar? Some site owners may choose to fill it up with anything - a place for anything and everything, just like a website junk drawer. However, a sidebar can be valuable real estate on any website, and depending on what the website's purpose is, can help further reach the goals of the website.
In this post today we'll talk about sidebars in detail, from what goes in them to how they're designed. Both can have a profound effect on how the website is used, and what content is highlighted. What's featured can even have an effect on how and how often that content is used. We'll also take a look into some examples of websites that use sidebars correctly in a number of different niches.
