Hello,

I have just revamped my main site. I am revisting how I am structuring my link pages. On one page how many links is too many in the SEs eyes?

Thanks,

Brian

GWJ,

I think that it is relative to the amount of text you have on the page. As long as you use a description with the link, I think that you should be okay.....and make sure that the links are on-topic

The old rule of thumb for hallway pages was 50, but this didn't have much basis in research that I'm aware of. The main concern was that spiders might not follow all of the links.

I've had well-ranked pages with over a hundred outbound links (a good mix of text and links).

Thanks. Yes I am giving each link a two-three sentence description. Heavy use of keywords behind the scenes also. Also all links are hand picked and very on topic/theme.

Thanks again,

Brian
