How this Presentation is Laid Out

Here, we explain the visual signposts you'll see at the right hand side of every page in this presentation, plus the visual signposts at the bottom left hand corner of each page. We also explain how to find your way around this collection of materials.


The Right-Side Frame Defines the Tutorial's major sections

This presentation is organized around eight sets of pages, as follows:

Navigation This Wayfinding page section provides an overview of the entire presentation's layout, and explains how to navigate its sections.
ISP The Picking the Right Hosting Provider section describes the characteristics of a good Internet Service Provider (ISP) and how to pick an ISP that best meets your needs.
Tracking The Tracking Visitors section discusses log files, tools to analyze them, and what you can and can't learn from them.
Searching The Picking the Right Search Tools section looks at ways of making your web information searchable.

Navigating Between Tutorial Sections

To begin any section of the presentation, you need only select its icon in the right-hand frame on the screen. You can jump around these sections as much as you like, but you'll begin each one with its introductory page.

Navigating With Frames


Other Navigation Controls

Within the substantive sections of this tutorial (all of them except for this one), you'll also find a set of controls at the bottom left hand side of each HTML document (within the large "slide frame" on the left side of each page). Here's a list of what you may see (not all of these elements will occur on every page):

Home This Home icon returns you to the introductory page for the current tutorial section. On an introductory page this icon returns you to the master Title page.
Previous This Left arrow takes you to the preceding page in a section's page set (where one exists; if one isn't available, the arrow won't appear). Thus, the first page in a set has no left arrow, and the final page in a set no right arrow. Use this to navigate within a page set, to get to a preceding page.
Next This Right arrow takes you to the next page in a section's page set (where one exists; if one isn't available, the arrow won't appear). Thus, the first page in a set has no left arrow, and the final page in a set no right arrow. Use this to navigate within a page set to get to a succeeding page.
Outline This Outline button links you to the presentation outline.
