---- Do Internal Links Lead To Penguin Slap / Algorithm-Based Penalties?
- 10:44 pm on Jul 1, 2013
I would think that a navigation bar would be ignored but if you thought it was a problem you could always "no follow" those links.
I personally would not "nofollow" main navigation links, in fact I would not use "nofollow" on internal links at all - it can send a message "I do not trust these links".
If you are concerned, then just create main navigation that is aimed at visitors rather than at SE and you should be ok.
