page length internetfixes msg:598204 1:38 pm on Sep 23, 2004 (gmt 0) How large is to large a page when it comes to Search Engines. I have a glossary page that I'm working on and I'm thinking of breaking it up into alphabetical pages. But I'd rather have it one page because of all the good page content it has. Anyone have any ideas on how many characters on a page is to much?
Thanks in advance. (And thanks for all the past help you guys have given me.)

Google cuts off at 101Kb of text/markup. However, as most users will not get past a three or four paragraphs on a long page, you shouldn't be approaching the former limit anyway! R1chard msg:598206 1:31 pm on Sep 24, 2004 (gmt 0)
And I thought 20kb of text was too long! I didn't know about that limit, but it's worth bearing in mind. Thanks. tomda msg:598207 1:41 pm on Sep 24, 2004 (gmt 0)
I suggest you to break your glossary by letters and have a link "all in one page" with "none" in the robot tag so that SE will not read it (to avoid duplicate) Lord Majestic msg:598208 1:51 pm on Sep 24, 2004 (gmt 0)
In original Google's design 4k words was the limit after which words would lose exact positional data thus impacting relevance calculation based on proximity.
