Advanced CSS Drop Down Navigation Menu With Link Logos

Navigation menus play a huge role in search engine optimization of a blog. Linking blog articles directly to the root of the blog makes those articles jump higher in SERP (Search engine results page) as that allows to flow the page rank juice to those linked posts. So once you work hard and achieve higher page rank, you could then utilize them by linking your top notch articles with the main domain of the blog. That could either be done via featured post widgets or simply through drop down menus that provide an instant out look of the content that your blog could provide.

 CSS Drop Down Navigation Menu With Link Logos

We have shared couple of drop down menus before and here we have today yet another elegant one (probably the best one that we have shared before). The premium feature that allows you to add logos beside the link is simply amazing.

Before we move on, you can see our previously navigation menus:
