    navigation wording

    I'm working on navigation and trying to determine good wording. So which is more understandable?

    Company
    Services
    Solutions
    Contact

    or....

    Who we are
    What we do
    Your solution
    Contact Us

    Is one better to use than the other? I have my own opinions on them but wanted to see what others thought before offering my own.

    Personally I dislike navigation systems that give no clue whatsoever about what the organisation does. Both of the choices you have offered could apply to any organisation.
    work: revs | ecru
    reviews: films | mp3s
    projects: Glastonbury Tor | London IT support

    A combination of the two since the first one is too short in fact both are rather generic.

    Thanks Stymiee, I think that shows what everyone is suggesting. I had not considered adding the detail link description to the title before. thanks.

    Company - Instead of that Name of Company
    Services - <Company Name> Services
    Solutions - Solutions <Company Name> Provides
    Contact - Reach <Company Name>

    I guess using the Name is what I personally prefer.

    Thanks
