I have question i hope to find the answer ...

I have a javascript menu (collapsible menu) and its 3 js files and one of them contains the links that i want to show in the a collapsible menu) . I do not want google to read the links that are in the menu and i want to ask if there is a chance that google read those links from the text based js file.

Thank you

as a rule of thumb you can't be sure.

afaik, googlebot normally doesn't read external js-files but i've read reports here that it sometimes does. i guess that's part of their anti-spam techniques.

refrain from tricking google by javascript, google is more clever. if you want some pages not to be crawled use robots.txt and/or meta-tags.
