I'm building a website right now, and the following scenario has presented itself and I'm unsure if it affects SEO or not. The website needs to be divided in two sections. It is one single company with one area that gives consulting services and the other area develops software, related with he consulting services they give. But they want to keep them separate like this: DOMAIN: www.domain.com. From here there are two links: - One to www.domain.com/consulting/ - Another to www.domain.com/software/ They want to be able to change from the Consulting side to the Software side, but not to be able to return to the root (www.domain.com). How will this affect the SEO of the website? (not having links back to the root) I've seen that www.flexerasoftware.com does something similar, but they are an established company already which might not be that affected from this. Thanks for any help.
