View Full Version : Javascript Menu and Spidering



Feb 3rd, 2005, 10:04 PM
I think one of the reasons my site isn't "google-ing" well is because my navigation is in Javascript. I like the looks of it, but I hate the non-spidering and the non-usability of my site for those people who have Java-script turned off. I was thinking about a few solutions for this, so let me know which one you would do or if there is a better solution.

1) Put a CSS-HTML look alike right behind my Javascript navigation so that when someone without JS or a bot enters it will access that menu instead.

2) Hide a "Site Map" link on the site for bots to access and spider my site correctly. (this wont help those with JS off).

Any other ideas? Really need help on this one.

Yes, a HTML+CSS menu.

Ok, but is ther one that actually drops down like the one at http://www.webpropertiesinc.com ? (See items on right for drop down). Point me to one like this that doesnt uses only CSS+HTML.
