Hello all...

I am about to go live with a site I am working on.
I made a dreamweaver template to make it easy to create new pages.

The template contains the Menu- and I have links to all the major pages on the website, including the HOME link to get back to http://www.mysite.com\

I have 2 questions:

1. Do I need to know something about using the same Menu for ALL the files in my site? Is it good or bad? If it's good, do I need to make sure there are specific links inside? If it's bad- do I need to think about different method?

2. When linking in the menu to my 'HOME' page, is it matter if I use the index.html or just the main adress of my website...?

Please help me out and thanks in advance for any help...

Guy.

IMO, It does not really matter if it is good or bad for seo. What really matters is that it is bad if you confuse your visitors with different kinda navigation in each page.

Pick one and try to have any and all links pointing to that single url. I suggest pick http://www.yoursite.com/ and use it everywhere. Internal or external.

your menu is good. Dont confuse people by trying to change it.

Use your url to link to over index.html.....

ie. http://www.yoursite.com

This is the result thats found in search engines not http://www.yoursite.com/index.html

Use the same menu through your whole site. Once users understand the menu it is easier to focus on content.

I always point to the domain name or "/" for most of the links to my home page. If there are two references to the home page on the same page .... then I would use the file name (index.html) for the second reference.
