Rules

Rule: Avoid Javascript Links

The href attribute of <a> tags should never contain javascript because Google won't follow them and the content can not be spidered.

The href attribute should contains every time a valid uri an a javascript event like onclick should read the uri from the href attribute.

If you need navigation elements only for the user and hidden for search engines, you should avoid semantic anchor tags and place javascript calls on elements to click, like <div> or <img> tags.

Rule: Avoid hash (#) only links

The only the hash (#) placed within the href attribute in an <a> tag are often used as template placeholders and have no function within the document.

The onclick behaviour in some browsers is a jump to to pressed link and should be avoided.

In the most use cases the hash only can be avoided and replae with semantic better ones. Javascript onclick events should handled like described in HTML rule Avoid static event handlers.

Rule: Avoid multiple outgoing links

Try to reduce external links on your page.

If multiple links with the same external url are given, try to mark as much as possible uris with the rel="nofollow" attribute to increase your "link juice".

Google gives every site a total score and every link will reduce the score; except links marked with rel="nofollow".

The higher the score of the document the higher are the backlink quality for the targeted site. This term is equal to the rule Avoid multiple internal links.
