Too Many Hyperlinks Because Of A Drop Down?
Posted 02 February 2007 - 08:00 AM
The first one is finally up and running and all the links are getting indexed. Its working great
But now I realized, most clients have tons of links to these drop downs. This client has close to 100 just in the top of page navigation drop-down with all the flyouts.
They have a another page selector a the bottom of the page, a standard Form list drop-down that has close to 50 links; many are duplicates of what’s in the top top of page navigation drop-down
Add this to the other links in their page side navigation area, and the links in the page body and we have well over 200 links
I know the ideal is to keep to less than 100 links on a page.
Is having all these navigation links going to hurt us?
With the growing use of these drop-downs, do search engines, hopefully, favor the links in the body of the page?

I wouldn't worry about it unless you're finding that some of those pages aren't getting indexed.

The greater concern, as has already been mentioned above, is how easy the page and specifically your navigation is for real people to use. On the surface it sounds pretty confusing for users, but that's without seeing the page/site in question. There are certainly ways you can have a lot of links on a page and still have good usability, so this the main concern I'd be focusing on.
