View Full Version : Alternate name for 'Links' page?

One of the options on my pull down menu leads to a page that has links to the following areas of my site:

FAQ - frequently asked questions
Related Links - Links to sites whose content is related to that in my site
Missing Links - Where readers can submit links of their own if they feel their content is similar
Thanks & Accolades - Giving thanks to those people who helped with this site, listing any awards I may win for the site in the future, disclaimers and so on.
I may also put a link for a site map here.

At present, the drop down menu option is called 'Links' but I don't think this is an appropriate name for the actual content the page has.

Any idea what I could use instead?

FAQ -leave it
Related Sites- Links to sites whose content is related to that in my site
Missing Links(other sites) - (i don't know what this has to do with ppl posting there links )Where readers can submit links of their own if they feel their content is similar
Thanks & Accolades (site credits)- Giving thanks to those people who helped with this site, listing any awards I may win for the site in the future, disclaimers and so on.

"Site Map" would work good.

If you have sites linking to you (incoming), try to put them at the bottom of your index page, too. No sense boosting ranking for your "similar sites" page. :cool:

sorry for the bad explanation - I just need one word as an alternate to 'links' which covers the topics mentioned.

My menu looks like this
http://www.geocities.com/murphyz_mike/pages/nav.htm
and under the 'content' dropdown I have 'links' as the last option. That's what I want to change.

The page it leads to contains the things mentioned above - from FAQ to Site Map.

lol. Copy & paste, I suppose :D

My suggestions:

Quick access

I do hope it was copy and paste, not sit there typing from a book.

'General' may be a possibility, I really can't decide.

Hopefully if I continue with the rest of the site something may pop into mind.

"portal" is an alright alternative to "links"...

Yeah it was a copy and paste off www.thesaurus.com lol.

Not even I could be bothered to type that much... ;)

I like portal too (readhead's suggestion).
