Do blank second-level menu pages "upset" Google rankings?
One of my Home Page Menus on my guitar website is named BEGINNERS. When you hover over it, a list of second-level menus appear. One of them is named ARTICLES FOR BEGINNERS. When you hover over this second-level menu, a list of third-level menus appear.
My second-level ARTICLES FOR BEGINNERS is blank. The page has no text.
1. If I make the relationship link for this page a nofollow page, and check the box "open in a new tab," will this affect Google's ability to find my third-level menus and adversely affect my site ranking?
2. Or, is it better to put text in all of my second-level menus?
Your help is deeply appreciated!
