Useful list of Unicodes for geometric shapes - great for adding arrows into CSS. (ASCII codes wouldn't fit into my CSS content=" " and eventually, after a lot of Googling, came across these.)

Useful for putting shapes such as up and down arrows into menus, accordions etc.

Is a high bounce rate worth a few links to blog posts?

We are a local web design company. 5 of our blog posts give a very comprehensive list of famous celebrities who have lived in / been influenced by our local area, with a few lines of unique content about each celebrity's links with the area.

These pages have got a few links (Wikipedia, 1000s of Pinterest links and a few others).

Unfortunately, they also have a very high bounce rate (high traffic, about 90% bounce rate) as people from around the world, and throughout different ares of the UK, are clicking on them, reading the few lines about the celebrity of interest, and then bouncing away as they have no interest in the local area. (The pages were envisaged to be an interlinking set of comprehensive pages for local people; we have interlinked and created good content and design etc)

Are these 5 blog posts damaging our site as a whole? Would we be better off deleting them and sacrificing the links?

Would appreciate any advice.

PS The bounce rate for our normal sales pages is low but these blog pages are dragging our overall bounce rate up as they are high traffic.

I would like to arrange some the content of some long pages so that you have:

Heading 1 - click to create a "drop down" of previously hidden content within this section then click again to re-hide the content

Heading 2 - click to create a "drop down" of previously hidden content within this section then click again to re-hide the content

etc

This would make it easier for users to see and understand the structure of a long page and also easier for them to navigate through long pages.

Would this have any negative SEO implications as much of my content would be hidden from users initially? That is, would Google discount this content in its algorithms or otherwise penalise me?

Nice slick code for creating responsive CSS menus - CSS only, no Javascript, works across browsers. Easy to edit and adapt.
