No maximus12, I did not add any external links. I just changed the internal site navigation and even reduced links on page. In earlier site design we had too many links in right and left nav to almost every section of site. After many months i realized that we our both nav were too much of a templated content for each page. So we got rid of unrelated links and rather got rid of one nav, reduced no of links in nav to just 15-20 related links to that particular page.
