I think I am using the correct term (on page). Is their a limit to the number of links you should have on your home page to other pages in your site. Example: You have a page about the Califorinia and landing pages in the site for each town and city. Could be 300 links? Does it matter to SEO. The links are relevant if someone wants to search for the same info in another location.
Too many links on one page is one of the primary reasons for site abandonment, it might be an idea to add some kind of search functionality. For visitors who don’t know the town and city names you can link to a page that has all the towns and cities logically listed by county.
As a general rule (and SEO guideline) index pages normally describe the sites intended use and provide links to main category pages, or the most important or most up to date information.
100 links on a page is a pretty good rule of thumb.
More than that and usability for visitors will start to suffer - and search engines might stop following them after the first hundred or so.
It's not a hard and fast rule - I have pages with more than 100 links where it makes sense for site navigation - but it's pretty rare.
do whatever is best for your users. they are the only ones that really matter
Google says limit to 100 on each page, probably good idea to spread them.
I think you should keep links as less as possible and certainly it should be less than 100. One more thing you consider, that is use of frames. Open all your links in the details frame (keep a larger space at right leaving a small margin frame at left for the links. that will save you of providing links to your homepage every time.

This is how I understand backlinks. Linking to a webpage that links back to you is more valuable to SEO than not having it link back to you. The more removed this website is from your own the better. For example, linking from one of my hubs to a non-hubpages webpage is more...

"Paranoia" must think some of you, and honestly, I used to think the same. I didn't even believe that this was possible, even though Google mentioned that they have ways to detect link spamming. But the reality proved me I was wrong. My Traffic Is Constantly Going DownI did complain a...

affect the authors search engine rankings on other pages, blogs, or websites?

This topic has been raised a couple of times in other threads, I thought it was worth posting as a separate topic to get more attention. We all know how important backlinks are. Current thinking is that simply exchanging links (site A links to site B and site B links to site A) is a...
