During goal oriented web navigation does the competition for
web selection depend on all navigation options or only those
options which are more likely to be functional for information
seeking? Here we provide evidence in favour of the latter
alternative. Within a representative set of real web sites of
variable breadth, the time required to reach a goal located at
the depth of two clicks from the home page is accounted for
by C, an objective measure of the complexity of the start
page, based on the number of links weighted by the number
and type of embedding web elements. Our results demonstrate
how focusing on links while ignoring other web elements
optimizes the deployment of attentional resources necessary
to navigation.
