I'm having an issue with web spiders.
My default page is index.htm (as defined by my ISP) however I'm running a CF site.
So, in my index.htm page is a JS GoNow function to redirect to default.cfm
Only problem is WebSpiders won't/can't follow the JS link so my site doesn't get indexed.
I tried adding an href= statement after the GoNow, but it still looks like the spiders aren't following the link. (Once a spider does get to the default.cfm page, it will read the page properly, as tested by the SimSpider utility on this site)
Can anyone offer any suggestions?
Maybe try it before the JS function. I'm having good luck with spiders following links that look like this:
<a href="address.html" onClick=function()>
<added> Whoops, I should have read closer. I see now their isn't any click!</added>
-I have added both the text link and the Meta refresh
-I can't change the default index file as my site is hosted by my ISP (shared server)
-I am submitting /default.cfm, but that doesn't take care of the spiders that crawl through the net on their own (inktomi)
