Removing my mega menu a good idea?

ginjarou published thread Removing my mega menu a good idea?


I work for a B2B website which has a large 'mega' navigation menu. It has hundreds of links to our most popular pages.

Our UX designer would like to change that instead for a page with the menu links on. I.e., you click 'Products' on the menu but are instead taken to a page with all the products listed within the pages as links.

At first I thought this was bad as this nav menu is currently giving us links to all our important pages. However after some research I found have comments that these 'mega' menus contain TOO many links and can really damage equity.

I do have a good sitemap so don't think any of the pages will become orphaned.

Any advice on what to do would be appreciated!

Google don't encourage using the Disavow tool. https://www.searchenginejournal.com/google-disavow-tool/289871/#close

I've noticed tools like SEMrush keep alerting users that they have a lot of 'toxic' links but you shouldn't just go and blanket disavow a whole bunch of these links just because a tool said so. Google knows which are the spammy links.
