Spider Question



7:13 pm on Mar 28, 2000 (gmt 0)

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 ...

I'm sorry confusion. Let me get this right under <body> use <!--http://www.goldenwebjewelers.com/examplelinlkpage.htm

Is this what you mean??

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.
