The main use of buttons is to offer short cuts and supplement your site's navigation. Buttons range from major site-wide "call to action" tasks to links to read more about a specific topic.

The text on each should be clear and concise—only two to four words.

How many buttons can I have?

Use buttons very carefully to highlight important links and tasks. Using too many buttons reduces the importance of all of them.

One or two buttons draw attention and show their importance. If you have five or six buttons, your users are likely to ignore them all.
