What is a Sidebar and Do You Need One on Your Blog?

When you think about a typical website’s layout, there’s a strong chance you include a column of important links or information to the right or left of the main content area. This element is known as a “sidebar”, and is extremely prevalent across the web. However, for yours to be effective, it’s vital to understand how this feature works.

Not all websites need sidebars, and some designs are much better off without one. With that in mind, we’re going to dig deeper into the purpose of this feature, what types of sites should consider using it, and how it factors into the current “mobile-first” landscape.
