    Default Will I lose my SEO potential?

    Hello, I wonder if the review on the website would not have separate subpages, each only that after clicking on the review button, the collapse row would appear, and the review itself would be hidden under the accordion. It would be easier to manage a site with a lot of reviews plus the reviews would load faster. Nowadays, mobility and speed of information seems to be a good solution, but am I not losing from the SEO point of view?

    If you're talking about a handful of reviews this will probably be okay.

    If you're talking about dozens of reviews, especially long ones, the longer the 1 page gets the more time it needs to download. That won't be a problem for most desktop systems but if you're targeting mobile players who don't have good wi-fi, you and they may not be happy with the experience.

    I'd say be prepared to start carving off reviews onto their own pages when the thing becomes unwieldy.

    A single review page might cloud your analytics, since it will attract all the queries. You won't really know which queries are bringing in the money. Someone might search for Casino Alpha and sign up with Casino Beta.

    If you are speaking about the method of a drop down menu, then that is a fine way to do it as long as it seems to fit the theme of the site.

    At some point you may find the total number of reviews or sub pages in the drop down may reach a limit, where you may have to put some of them in another drop down menu or find another method to make the links to them available to the reader, but each case may need different solutions.

    Showing the site in question and allowing to look at specifics may provide better suggestions.

    As Michael said, by not having sub pages for individual reviews tend to make some pages far too long.

    So the page would be very long, but the anchor menu would assist in navigating this site. So, for example, if a review of, for example, Intertops was hidden on such a long page under the collapse row and it did not have a separate subpage, you can rank in SEO for Intertops related terms as efficiently as if this review were on a separate subpage?

    But,

    Although debated somewhat, pages that are TOO deep and too long, may not be read and may chase some visitors away.

    A visitor may arrive at the page based on a keyword that is many screens below the fold and may leave since they scroll and scroll and scroll and not find the topic of the keyword that landed them there.

    As a personal preference, I rarely stay at sites I land on that do not answer the query I searched for fairly quickly.

    If I had searched for blue widgets and land on your page and see 3 or 4 or 5 reviews of red widgets and green widgets and yellow widgets and purple widgets, other then what I searched for I most likely will never see your blue widget information and will go back to my search and look for pages that do in fact answer my search.
