Near the top of the SeattleTimes.com home page, there is a section called Top Stories. These are local, state, national, world or other types of stories. The top of the home page just under the masthead features a main story and photo that change as news breaks.

Scrolling from top to bottom readers find various sections, such as Nation and World, under which are subsections. The Nation/World subsections include national politics and oddities. To the right of the Nation/World section are links to the most-read articles on the site. Under the Local News section, there are links to subsections, including crime, transportation and local columnists. The Business and Tech section includes links to subsections on Boeing and Microsoft, the two largest corporations in Washington. Other sections featured on the home page include Life, Travel, Entertainment, Sports, Homes, Jobs and Marketplace.

The links across the bottom of the site's home page include drop-down menus for contacting the Seattle Times and its newsroom employees; a link called About the Company that has newspaper archives and Pulitzer Prize-winning articles from 1950 through 2014, as of 2015; and links for advertisers and subscriber services.
