I've been working on a web site update and I would hate to do anything that might mess up my google keyword rankings for individual pages.

This update is going to involve a new menu system. Currently the only full menu in on my index page. ie http://www.budgetlighting.com It's nothing fancy, just a bunch of links, but it works.

What I would be changing to looks like this ie. http://www.ballastlighting.com/index-test.html The links are all in the menu on the left, still not a big deal. However, I will be adding this menu to every page on the website via an ssi tag. FYI, the menu is css with only a very tiny bit of javascript to allow the menu to stay open when your mouse is not on it.

Any guess as to the what a menu (the same menu) on every page might do to current individual page placement in google. If it might be a negitive effect I could add the menu on each page by using an iframe instead (if that would be noticed less by the search engines).

Just looking for some input.

Thanks

Steve

It should not effect your ranking, but if you change your title meta tag then you will have problems

I changed my menu (navigation) system on some of my websites and I did not see a drop in ranking.
