Brothers,
I need experts' help here. Recently (6th June) I launched my first website(NameStall.com). I took a lot of care and it took 4 months to finish the website and submitted my website to 4 forums for review. In one forum a guy with 500+ forum posts PMed me and told

"Your content is unique but your internal linking will kill your SEO. Google doesn't like this kind of internal links."

Then I send him 4 PMs and asked - him what was wrong and what my mistakes were - but never got any reply from that guy.

Guys I am really very scared now. This guy has more than 500 forum posts, so he must know something I don't.

This is my first website and I spent 4 month to develop all the tools and just launched it.

Please please please brother help me out here. what did I wrong with my internal linking? Or what is the safest or best practice to build your internal linking. Or who do you link your website pages?

Please help me out here guys.

    Internal linking is really good as long as its part of the "content". Check out this recent thread

    Your internal linking looks good to me. One thing I noticed is that the alt text on your banner should be your man money keyword rather then "logo."

    Other than that there is some kind of funny #fghfghfghfg code that keeps getting appended to links. Not sure what technology that is supposed to be but it's not standard and stuff like that will mess google up a lot of the time.

      namestall.com/user-domain-suggestions#.T926DFJIbDc or
      namestall.com/domain-name-suggestions#.T92-_VJIbDc

      if yes then i am in another problem i think. i thought i was the only person having this link problem...but now i think it is another problem i need to solve....

      i am not sure why this is happening -

      i am really getting frustrated with the site....every day new problems are arising


      anyway thank you very very much for telling me this problem....

        This thread is a perfect case as to why people really need
        to learn something about creating sites, servers, javascript,
        coding, etc. If not, you get this.

        The # is not part of the link. It gets put there by something
        internally that is putting it there. It sends and gets values
        for some internal need. Obviously, nobody here is on twitter
        or they would know twitter does something similar. Normally
        that # means an anchor on the page, but in this case it
        must be used for something else, a la twitter. Probably
        makes it easier on the server.

        Has nothing to do with seo, google, or anything else.

        Your internal linking is exactly they way it should be.
        Top menu, that is. There is no need to clutter your
        so-called "content" with the same links, over and over.
        That's what a menu bar is for.

        Unique content does not mean a thing.

          Dear Paul,
          thank you very very much.

          I found the problem of that #. Link. I used AddThis social plugging and this # link was generating by that plugging. And I don't know who to solve this problem so finally i switched to ShareThis social plugging and this problem immediately solved.
          You think my Top menu bar is enough for my internal links and no need to add internal links using same anchor? Did you mean if you have a proper navigation top menu bar then that is enough for your internal links? Content links are not that important?

          Bro i am really very new to web development and SEO and this is my first site. Learning every day. and learning new stuffs. Top many things to learn. Sometimes I really feel like leaving this web development business. Too complicated and too exhausting.

          Thans again brothers for your valuable time & suggestions....

    Yes, a proper top menu bar, like the one you have, takes care of all the internal linking you need. You should still change the alt text on your banner on the top of your page to a money keyword rather then "Logo".

    After the first link to a page, which is made in your top menu, any subsequent links have very little value. No reason to stress any longer, the site links look good, just add content.

      Thank you Ablaze...


      I didn't know my top menu bar is enough for my link structure...I was a coincident...and I am really very happy know that...


      I am not sure what did you mean by "money keyword rather then logo"...but after reading your post I change the alt of my logo and named it "domain name generator" as I think that is the most important keyword for my website...hope you will explain me a bit about that logo issue...


      After asking in different forums and reading solutions I really felt like need to reorganize my internal links and I did...reduced total number of internal links...used variations of anchor text (keywords)...and tired to do it litter better....don't know whether I did it correctly or not but this time I felt much better personally....


      Thank you very very much for your valuable comment and suggestions....

      As long as you are playing within the rules OR in simple words, as long as you are keeping things natural and they make sense, you have nothing to worry about.

      Internal linking is a considerable onsite factor and you can simply understand it by linking not more than 3-4 pages of your website which are truly relevant to the text linked on that specific page.

        ArticleSubway,

        thank you very much for your guideline and suggestions.....


        In a different forum someone wrote - Google Says- "The number of internal links pointing to a page is a signal to search engines about the relative importance of that page. If an important page does not appear in this list, or if a less important page has a relatively large number of internal links, you should consider reviewing your internal link structure."


        And I think you are correct....and I had way too many internal links....so I reorganized my links and anchor texts...this time I just kept most important and relevant links and used various keywords as anchor text...


        This time I really wanted to keep things clean and wanted to guide my visitors correctly....though I linked 4/5 pages but at least this time I am feeling better....hope I did things correctly this time....


        Wish to hear from you again ....

          You've read it correct. Important pages must be linked more than less-important pages (staying natural of course).

          It would also help you to distribute Google PR to the pages which you think/link are important for you.

          Good day,

      bro i really took lot of care of this site...and this is my first website so tried my best to develop a good and useful website...I worked really hard to develop all my domain tools...really put a lot of work into the site specially building the database and tools....


      And this is why I m getting frustrated...I am not finding any problems with my tools rather facing problems with SEO and other stuffs where I have little knowledge and control...and facing new problems every day...after solving one problem I am facing another problem...it's like a continuous process and seems like not ending....this is the reason of my frustration....


      Hope you are correct brother...everything will work itself out...


      Thank you very much bro for your kind words...
