    Cool "Advanced" help with the "table trick"

    I have read and understand how to utilize the table trick (mentioned by Craig Fifield) in order to have my main copy indexed by the spiders, instead of my navigation links. But I have a problem: What if I have a table that has 4 cells: The top Left and right are graphics, bottom left is the Nav Links, and the bottom right is what we want the spiders to index (main copy).

    If it were just the 2 cells (nav links and Main copy), then it works. But when I try to add the top 2 cells in, it fries the page. What am I doing wrong?

    Your guidance would be greatly appreciated.


    If you need to see what I am talking about, the page is:

    Why wouldn't you want your navigation links indexed? Links are extremely important.

    This type of thing is really only an issue of obscenely long pages, over 100kb usually. Unless your page is that long you don't need to worry about this, your page will be indexed in it's entirety. If your page was larger than 100kb I'd still say do not worry about this. I'd rather link my menu links indexed, thus increasing link popularity for the pages the menu links to, than to have an extra 5kb of 80kb of content indexed.

    The links will still be indexed, they just won't be spidered BEFORE the copy on the page. It has to do with SE ranking, not page size.

    Thank you for your comment.

    Hate to break it to you, but that isn't going to help your ranking.

    You really should make a new post for CSS questions in the web design forum.

    But yours looks perfectly formed to me.
