    Arrow !!! Skip Navigation before or after the logo?

    Hi!

    I wanted to ask where would you place your "Skip Navigation" or "Skip to content" link. Before the logo of the page or after?

    I would appreciate your opinions or resources if any available!

    Thank you very much for your kind support!!!

    IMHO I make skip links so, to be first links in document. Because on text browsers the first link is always focused at "onload". So if your logo contains a link i would make the skip links before it. If the logo does not contain a link then you can place it before skip links.

    I normally would tend to place the skip link at the beginning of a long list of hyperlinks typically a navigation menu rather than focus upon the skipping logo itself - though skipping the logo is also a good method.

    My though was, that if I place the "Skip Navigation or to Content" link before the logo, the users of Screen readers would not need to hear everytime the logo alt tag (my company name) when they browse to other pages of my site. On the other hand, I thought that if was not so, the users could not be sure if they are still on my web site.

    What do you think about that?

    I put it between the logo and navigation bar. I've also taken to adding one at the footer lately, because I have about 4 or 5 links there on my site.
