I think if you used dhtml menus like hierarchical ones rather than js menus the main link from the menu bar would be spiderable thus you would need to create an index page for each section with fixed links to the content. Spiders and those with security set to high would use that, the rest would use the dhtml drop down (hierarchical) menus.

electronics leads to page /electronics/index.html or whatever with your content and links on it .. but mouseover creates a pop up menu for that section ..
Oops thats not what your site does now is it .. forget it .. im sorry I spoke now .... well heck posting anyhow took me all of a minute to write this :-)
I am sure you could create the same effect as you have with a more spider friendly method.
Someone with a clue will no doubt be along shortly :-)
I verified that the site works okay with even "low" setting in IE. If you trun off active scripting, the menu does not appear. I have no clue how many average users go that far. You might be right about the spiders. That's why I added the site map.
It is a problem with some real store sites and manufacturer sites though. they seem to be willing to throw out the 20% of users that do not use IE, or an even higher percentage when they start requiring lower security settings, or even flash.
Instead of your_dhtml_menu.js, can I use [domain.com...]
Or is there any other way, where I can use the code that will work on different level categories?
This is not exactly a link ;)
Perhaps because of this, I've never seen Googlebot [and I mean 'Googlebot' he..] fetching a .js "pointed" by a "src='".
