The SEs do not seem to be spidering my site. I am concerned that the use of JAVA script drop down menus might be the reason (this is what I am using for navigation). URL is: [goldenwebjewelers.com...] . Let me know if this is the problem. If it is does any one have a solution without adding more text/images to the index page, as it allready takes 26 seconds on download.

Suggest you add a site contents list consisting of invisible (preferably absolute) links on top of your
page, right beneath the BODY tag. JavaScript links will not be spidered by engines, so ...

What I mean is that you reference the links as you would any other in normal HTML convention:
<A HREF:"http://yourdomain.com/page1.html"></A>
The difference being that you don't put anything before the end anchor tag </A> - this renders
the link invisible to a web browser, whereas the spiders will follow it.
Also, you might want to submit your pages individually to the search engines: not many will spider
or deep crawl an entire site following internal links anymore.
