Hi guys I'm working on a site which already has quite good rankings for its keywords and I don't want to change the code around too much in case it causes a problem with this. Currently the page structure goes like this: 1. Usual META. 2. Header. 3. Content. 4. Right Column (Items such as similar services, Twitter feed etc.) 5. Left Column (Navigation). 6. Footer. My question is, from an SEO standpoint, is it important to have the navigation loading as soon as possible? I have read numerous conversations on the subject with many saying that links closest to the top of the page will have the most relevance for SEO, but others disagree and say it's not that important. What are your takes on it?
