The three-click principle is an informal web design principle. Its content is that users of the website should be able to find any piece of information on the website with a maximum of three mouse clicks. Because if the user clicks three times and can't find the information they want, they will feel disappointed and leave. Web designers generally consider it useful, although there is very little evidence to prove it is right. But critics believe that "number of clicks" is not as important as other factors, such as "click correct rate." Jeffrey Zeldman wrote in "Bring Your Talents to the Internet" (2001), "The basis of the three-click principle is the way people use the Internet", and "this principle can Help you build a simple, intuitive and logical website".
