Same Header & Footer for Main site & Sub-Domain is against to SEO Guidelines?

Discussion in 'Google' started by Chinna Botla, Oct 30, 2019.

    I have a client site for Ex - site.com. Its blog site is blog.site.com

    Main website site.com's menu bar is having 50 links, the same menu section with 50 links we have placed in the footer. Which means 50 links in the header and 50 links in the footer.
    SEMrush
    The same header (50 links) & footer (50 links) we are using for blog.site.com

    Below are my queries.
    1. Keeping the header (50 links) and footer (50 links) the same on the website will hurt SEO?
    2. Shall I need to add nofollow tag for footer links (50 links)?
    3. Using main domain.com links in the header (50 links) and footer (50 links) of blog.domain.com is that spamming?

    Please help!

    That's quite a lot but it shouldn't hurt if the links are relevant (e.g. navigation/sitemap links).
    Having also the same links repeated won't hurt.
    Just make sure the links are relevant and useful to your users.

    2. Shall I need to add nofollow tag for footer links (50 links)?

    I wouldn't do that if the links are relevant. Unless you really want to devaluate those links

    3. Using main domain.com links in the header (50 links) and footer (50 links) of blog.domain.com is that spamming?
    Not necessarily.

    To my opinion, 50 links are way too many and since you are repeating the same link on the footer that would not help at all on the SEO aspect. Neither does it help by placing the nofollow tag.

    Just select the links to pages most relevant and with content that is keyword rich and these are the ones to be placed on the main page and then create sublink from there.
