|despite the fact that i know Google has visited the source code and has cached the info in the noscript, it is not listing the links to sitemaps |
How long ago was that. You'll have to wait at least a month before you can be sure that Googlebot hasn't seen them.

Not my forte so... but should you not be using noframes tags?

I expect he only wants search engines to visit these pages, not users, so noscript should be just as good.

I see.....must say it doesn't appeal to me, as if working in that sector isn't "complicated" enough ;-)

In that sector, they key is to use a lot of offline-based marketing.
I've worked on a few sites in this sector and offline branding is the key.

|The links to the three sitemaps are in the noscript on the main homepage |
Going back to the very beginning and thinking about your users first--and not the SEs--how the heck are they supposed to find your site map if the link is hidden from their view?
Put it out in the open where your users can see it. Though your site navigation might be intuitive to you and your client, different visitors find things different ways. A good site map or series of site maps can come in handy.
Heck, put a link to it in the footer of each page. That way it will be handy to your visitors--and SEs!

I had to use some noscript with links in it about a year and half ago for a project and ran into the same issue.
I left it up for about 4 months and pages linked to by the links within the noscript tag were NEVER indexed.
