I am currently working on a website, and the designer wants a menu that is setup like this:

  • Toplevel1
  • toplevel2Toplevel2
    • submenu1
    • submenu2
    • submenu3
  • toplevel3Toplevel3
  • toplevel4Toplevel4

allAll menu items have a title and content. When the user clicks toplevel2, the page needs to show all titles and content of the child submenus like so:

Title for submenu1 content....

Title for submenu2 content....

Title for submenu3 content....

etc..

ifIf the user instead clicks directly on submenu2, the exact same content should be displayed but with the selected submenu title and content placed first, like this:

Title for submenu2 content....

Title for submenu1 content....

Title for submenu3 content....

etc..

Although iI could get into a general discussion as to weather or not this is good design, my actual question is: Does this hurt SEO? They are all gonna have different URLS:

www.domain.com/submenu1 www.domain.com/submenu2

www.domain.com/submenu1 www.domain.com/submenu2

etc..

The thing is, iI can't just do canonical redirect, since the order of the content still differs between url's.

Any help is very much appreciated. Thanks
