    Here is the thread I found this in:
    http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...323-anyone-notice-no-index-web-2-0-blogs.html

    The quotes from kikerinka:

    I didn't post on that link because I didn't want to take the thread off topic.

    My question is:

    What is good navigation? Everything else (referring to, outbound links, etc) I am doing but my navigation is terrible. I use AFM and all the 2.0s listed in it seem to offer 3 navigation options. tags, category, archive.

    My web 2.0s are being constructed on do follow sites to provide link juice. I am bringing them up to around 10 articles (written with images) and some posts that are just Youtube vids to flesh them out.

    With only 10 articles or so should I be making categories. So far I am just using archive, which shows only 1 option with the number of posts in it. It is horrible navigation. (although I do leave the popular posts widgets to show those)

    I'm not even sure what I am asking. I guess what I mean is do I need navigation if all I am doing is building backlinks to parasites. How authentic do they have to be.
    (I have about and contact pages but that is about it)
    ...................

    If leaving this in the real thread would have been better, please let me know so that I won't do it again. I don't want to steal anyone's conversation but I also don't want to take a topic off course. Anyway, please advise.

    If your web 2.0 is for example in the home niche. Have a static home page all about the niche - this page will have your link and a outbound link to authority site. Then have an about page/contact page (make up the details) and to flesh it out a bit you can add category pages into the nav like Bathroom - Kitchen - Bedroom etc. And under each add 1 post at least with youtube video or little bit of text.

    That's how I do it anyway. Try not to overthink it.

    How come you go with a static rather then blog homepage?

    I've heard that people also add generic About and Contact pages. Just babble and mention your keyword just a little. The contact page does't really need to list real contacts, you can have a contact form, just make sure you don't leave the same e-mail footprint there (I don't know if they're checking, but still).

    Just so it doesn't roll off the 'home page'. You can do either, that's just my way of doing it.
