Most sites do it. Does yours? Having your logo link to your home page is a fairly common practice. As a user of a website though, do you expect it to be like that? Does it improve a sites usability at all?
Here is the poll: Do you expect the logo of a website to link to the home page?

The answer has to be YES. However, I see you’ve alerady had a vote for no.
Maybe it’s not as expected as I thought.
FYI: I’ve never had a client ask for this feature – it’s usually suggested by the designer.
Me voted no? No. I voted yes. I think it’s a generation thing. I have read many articles about how some people are totally against it. It generates wasted clicks. Most people I know though say they expect it. I have even read some people that so much expect it, they say “If it doesn’t, I stop visiting the site”. A little extreme, but I know for me, I expect it to do just that. It’s not a wasted click if the visitor is trying to get to the home page.
Also, I know a common pattern is many hit the logo to simply refresh the page, knowing they are on the home page. I tell people to keep it.

yes it does improve website usability.
It actually bothers me when the logo doesn’t take you the home page. I think that should be a no brainer.
Very much a throw soak yes to weblink your logo the webpage. I’m thinking if the no voters are basically voting no because they never though of it, or because they think it must not. Well.
