Not sure if I'm posting in the right place but am trying to improve long term effectiveness of a high traffic site.

Basically I'd like to have a few links currently at the bottom of each page appear as the first thing on the page to spiders. (Each page is quite long)

I'd like to follow this with my Page Heading and then my page content followed by Flash, images, JS menus etc

Do you do this with css, divs, or? I've no clue! Could someone maybe point me in the right direction?

Thanks for your help
John

Hi Johnser

Try linking your .js files from seperate java files with a link attribute. G cannot index them anyway so they are totally useless as far as SE's are concerned.

It's always better to show them the "meat" as early as possible.

Let them stay at the bottom. Its better in SEO terms to have your content spidered first and then your links. I usually set up my pages something like this..
[pre]
<body>
<div id="content">
blah blah
</div>
<div id="nav">
links
</div>
<div id="otherstuff">
</div>
</body>
[/pre]

Then I use CSS to absolute position these divs as required on the page.
