Top Bar
The Top Bar serves as your fixed compass, a way for visitors to navigate their way around your site and be introduced to your brand. So it's best to keep it simple; a prominent logo, clean section links, share buttons and a search bar are typically all you need at the top.

Side Bar
The Side Bar is great for call-to-actions and circulating additional site content.

Note: The default Side Bar layout features a Social CTA placeholder -- CTAs help attract the visitor's eye and drive additional engagement on your page.

An Important Note on Site Quality From Google’s Search Expert
