Thanks for the info, Robert. I'll definitely research more on the nofollow before bringing it up with them again.
And you said it right... this has been a disaster for sure.
I had them remove the tertiary links, but left the secondaries. Those were generally just shifted from body links in the old design to top nav links in the new one.
Any idea how long it would take a site to recover from a internal linking blunder such as this? Or is there anything else I can do to get the site to rebound?
I'm of the opinion that we need to stop making changes to it and just let Google digest it for a while. But if there's something I can/should be doing now, it'd be better to know sooner rather than later. :)
