Default Is There A Negative Effect To Show Categories And Products On The Same Page?

I mean having say 5 different categories on a page and showing the products that are in those categories below the categories.

Just In case people don't want to dig deeper to find there product because they know what they need already.

I would also want those categories for the people that need to do a little more searching and have a better reference guide.

So is there any negatives to my SEO doing it that way?

Nothing is for CERTAIN, but I can't think of a reason why the search engines would object. It sounds as though this would be useful for your human visitors. Search engines WANT pages that are more useful for humans.

Is there anything specific you're concerned about with this configuration? Or was this just a general question?

Thanks Torka,

This was somewhat my thought I'm glad I have a second person thinking the same because I really feel it will help users to do this.

Thanks again

as long as you don't have hundreds of categories and thousands of products for each category, then you are going to be OK.

If you use images for each product in the home page, make sure they are small and loads fast. Fast loading is one of keys for getting love from Google.

Improving the user experience is well rewarded by Google, if is easy to surf around your site then you will be rewarded.
