I am using a splash page for entering my website. The body of the index page looks something like this
<div align="center"><img src="pic.jpg" style="z-index:1; border-width:0px;" alt="Some text" usemap="#m_splash"></img>
<area shape="rect" coords="275,246,508,352" href="http://www.mydomain.com/index1.php" title="Page Title" alt="Some Text Here" />
I have daily visits from googlebot on this page, but for more than a month i didn't see googlebot through my logs to visit any other pages on my website.
Does it have a problem with the code above? Please help :)
I seem to recall that Brett said that staying within HTML 3 specs is a good idea for robots. That's probably going a bit far but you must certainly make sure that robots can find all the pages you want indexed via pure, static, HTML links. By all means use javacript links and more advanced stuff in your site but don't assume that Google will follow such links. You should also make sure your critical pages are validated.
