    Question SEO and site migration question


    I'm redesigning my old site (www.wetokole.com) for mobile and the category pages like www.com/acura.html" have a good ranking. In the new site (dev2.wetokole.com) I have a menu with the category of products links but the links don't take you to the category product page (but they do exist in the new site "dev2.wetokole.com/acura.html") instead when clicking on the category it shows a drop-down menu with all the sub-categories(car models).

    Can the SEO be affected because the link does not take you to the category page even though it does exist?

    The value of the category pages will lose their importances if you have removed the link to them. However I noticed you was using a popup to select which I know is a hotly debated issue but my personal view pop up's are really bad user experience and when used like this can really damage a site. #others may disagree but there is no reason for the popup except because you can. So your new version in my eyes is a far better solution.
