Most spiders can also follow the META refresh method:
<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="0;URL=default.cfm">
Which goes in the <head> section of your HTMl. The 0 is the delay, in the example above, 0 seconds before redirect.

Change the default index file for your base directory to default.cfm. You can do this using your .htacess file (on apache)

> adding an href= statement after the GoNow
Maybe try it before the JS function. I'm having good luck with spiders following links that look like this:
<a href="address.html" onClick=function()>
<added> Whoops, I should have read closer. I see now their isn't any click!</added>

"So, in my index.htm page is a JS GoNow function to redirect to default.cfm
Only problem is WebSpiders won't/can't follow the JS link so my site doesn't get indexed."
Why not submit the default.cfm page so spiders can start there?

Thanks for all the advise:
-I have added both the text link and the Meta refresh
-I can't change the default index file as my site is hosted by my ISP (shared server)
-I am submitting /default.cfm, but that doesn't take care of the spiders that crawl through the net on their own (inktomi)

Ask them to do it for you, if they won't move the site to an ISP who will.
