I have a site I am about to create a site map for that is over 500 pages. How do I go about this without creating a link farm. Or since they are all internal links will the SEs not view it as being a link farm? Has anyone dealt with this?

Would not be considered a link farm (internal only).

adding... 500 links on 1 page seems alot -- you may want to make sub-maps (similar to a directory for common topics/pages).

Last time I worded on the site I made "Hallway Pages" for each subsection. Guess I could stick with that system for the revamp.

Thanks

Yes, highly advisable.

Although a site map helps bots and spiders the greatest value is so visitors can easily overview your site.

500 links would be easily "confusing".
