Hi. I have a problem I cant seem to fix. On my page i have a javascript dropdown menu which i dont want search engines to read because it is very big. It consists of 434 links.
Is there a way for me to exclude it from search engines?

Thx in advance.

You can exclude the entire page with a meta tag:


<meta name="robots" content="noindex, nofollow" />

Another way is using a robots.txt file. More info is here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robots_Exclusion_Standard

I'm not sure if one can exclude just a part of the page, though.
