Site map with out being a Link farm How to create a site map without creating a link farm? aaronjf msg:642047 2:56 am on Oct 22, 2002 (gmt 0) I have a site I am about to create a site map for that is over 500 pages. How do I go about this without creating a link farm. Or since they are all internal links will the SEs not view it as being a link farm? Has anyone dealt with this?

Would not be considered a link farm (internal only).
adding... 500 links on 1 page seems alot -- you may want to make sub-maps (similar to a directory for common topics/pages).

Last time I worded on the site I made "Hallway Pages" for each subsection. Guess I could stick with that system for the revamp.

Yes, highly advisable.
Although a site map helps bots and spiders the greatest value is so visitors can easily overview your site.
500 links would be easily "confusing".
