Dear Experts:

We have revamped our website which is have a projects and under which microsites. everything has come out excellent . now the doubt is for all the inner pages of the microsite Home button is placed and when click on it takes to the micro site home page this is realy great.

problem is from every microsite home page should have a some sort of button which takes to the main site home page as of now designer says if click on the brand logo on every micro site this will take to the home page of main site but this is well not be know to every user.

1.Please suggest a best practice method where in a layman can understand.
2. Is it recommended to keep the Home button click on every microsite home page when click on this it takes to the main site home page.

Please suggest.

There are 2 standards for this type of thing:

1) On every page of the microsite you have a link to the "top" home page - the corporate master home page.

or

2) On the home page of the microsite, clicking the home tab takes you to the "top" home page -the corporate master home page.

Answering the question about the use of the logo as a link to the home page, this is true to a certain extent, in that a lot of web developers use this as a "standard" - but, as you correctly say, not everybody that browses the web actually knows that. Thus it is not an "industry standard", just something a lot of web developers do.

It certainly should not be used as the only way to get back to the corporate (master) home page.

Thanks for the reply.

I have tought something like Home tab of all the innerpages of the microsite will have to take to the Home page of that particular microsite and Home tab on the microsite home page will take to the corporate home main page.

please suggest.
Yes, that is what I said in point 2 above.
