    SEO - Links coded on a page using a foreach loop VS links written manually onto a pag

    Links on a website are a very important aspect of the an SEO strategy. Is there any SEO disadvantage of displaying links using a PHP foreach loop, like this:

    $land_for_sale = array('<a href="url.com/texas_land">Land in Texas</a>', '<a href="url.com/colorado_land">Land in Colorado</a>', '<a href=url.com/california_land">Land in California</a>');

    foreach ($land_for_sale as $links) {
    echo $links . "<br>";

    as opposed to manually coding them onto a page the standard way:
    <a href="url.com/texas_land">Land in Texas</a>
    <a href="url.com/colorado_land">Land in Colorado</a>
    <a href="url.com/california_land">Land in California</a>

    This may sound like an odd question, but using the foreach loop method would make site management for a client of mine easier

    Not a programmer so don't have any direct experience with your coded string but so long as a bot does not need to follow an action like "on click" you should be OK.
