What Does "Too Many Links on Page" Mean?

Any page that contains more than 100 links will be listed as having "Too Many Links on Page".

Why It's Important

Having a large number of links on a page is not a major issue, but there are still a number of reasons why it’s a best practice to keep the number of links under 100 when possible:

  • Indexation issues – When there are too many links on the page, search engines may not crawl all of them, which could lead to problems with indexation.

  • Diluted link juice – The amount of “link juice” this page will pass will be diluted the more links there are on the page. This could negatively affect the ranking benefits of backlinks to this URL.

  • Poor user experience – Too many links on the page often creates a poor user experience. With over 100 links on a page, users may feel overwhelmed and have difficulty navigating the site. Therefore, it's possible some search engines could value these pages less.

How To Fix

Remove any unnecessary links on the page. Look for links in the navigation or in the footer that are redundant or could be removed. If the majority of the links are in the body text, consider splitting the content into several pages (using the rel="next" and rel="prev" tags to connect them together).
