Bad To Use Anchor Links In Navigation Bar?
Posted 22 November 2011 - 12:36 PM
I'm doing a site for a small client who's driving me crazy with the navigation bar. She wants to have links off the main navigation bar that are essentially anchor links going to the same page, just different spots on the same page.
For ex. on the nav bar under the "Hats" button, she wants the fly outs beneath it to be "red hats" "blue hats" and "green hats". The 3 hat links would go to main Hats page, just land on the corresponding section.
I'm trying to talk her out of it. It just seems messy to me. If I were to go ahead with it... would it be bad, good, no difference for SEO.
She doesn't btw, want to make seperate pages for each.
Thank you in advance!

Thanks for your response. I think in this case, she was trying to keep the page count down. We had agreed on 10 pages for her site and she was trying to get more content on the site without paying for more pages.
But, based on your resonse, sounds like it's a bad idea in any case as it may appear tricky or underhanded to search engines.

I can recall having a very similar conversation about named anchors seven or eight years ago at IHY about Sharon and Roy Montero when they added document fragment links to many of their pages.
