    where should your logo go?

    i think the logo looks best in the top left corner of the website, and just about every major corporations website that i go to, their logo is always in the top left corner. Is this a standard or just common practice? would the type of site determine this? is there any cases where the logo would be better in the top center of the page?

    I'd say the top left is the most common place, and it's usually where users look first. It's also a good idea to link your logo to your homepage.

    In a left-to-right reading environment, most visitors are probably accustomed to seeing the logo in the upper left-hand corner. As long as it's near the top of the page – and is readily recognisable as a logo – I don't think it matters all that much whether it's on the left, the right or in the middle.


    For usability reasons it should be a link to the start page, though.
