View Full Version : Couple of questions about HTML and SEO

01-01-2004, 02:55 PM
Hi guys, sup? :)

I'm now in the end of the design process for my website, Websitefaq.com (It's his first birthday TODAY! Hooray! Cool birthday page is coming within the next ten minutes :))

As to my questions:

-I have links on a navigation box on the left (line 40-50 on the code, good and quick), and just before the link I have some arrow with a cool (and polite) hover effect, so the code is a bit long, something like:

<font class="nav_bullet" id="nb1">&#187; </font><a href="http://websitefaq.com/faqs/html/" class="normal" onmouseover="nb1.className='nav_bullet_hover'" onmouseout="nb1.className='nav_bullet'">HTML FAQ</a>

Can it disturb the SE? I hope not.

-In the footer I have some "links" that I nade with <span> and onclick, they doesn't coutn as links and won't transfer PR, right?

Thanks pals,

:cool: :)

Can we see the page with this on? Can only see ur birthday page at the mo! :)

Sounds like you could do your hover effect with CSS which would be much better - but would need to see it. As an example, the menu in my Casino Review Site (link below) is all done with CSS, including the red circle changing to green on hover.

Would need to see these footer "links" to check.

You should be ok with the onclick thing. It shouldn't transfer PR

I have another question: I have printable versions for all the content pages on my site - Should I use a normal link to that pages (which will count and tranfser the SE to non-important pages) or a fake one?

Depends if you want them to recieve any PR. If you do, then make sure there's a link back into your site. You could use them to focus some of your PR by linking from them back to an important page.

Oh, OK, So I'll link back to important pages on the site, great idea...

Thank you so much for the quick replies! Thank to you the changes have been made immediately :)
