I have travel site, where every property has a picture gallery. If someone clicks on the thumbnail, wich are placed on the property page, a pop-up window comes up with the big photo and description.

Recently I put some Java script code on these pop-up pages, which disables right-clicking AND IE picture toolbar (I put too many efforts in making these photos, and I hate to meet them on another sites..).

Maybe it's a silly question, but could it affect crawling? i.e. if right click is disabled, one can't view the source code...can robots see it in spite of this?

Thank you.

This will have zero impact on robots/search engines. However, if someone wants your pictures, they simply have to switch off javascript.

Is it a Javascript link that opens the popup? If so, make sure robots can follow it.

<a href="page_with_big_photo.html" onclick=".. JS code to open popup .."><img ... /></a>

Hard coded link for robots and users with JS disabled. JS link for users with JS enabled.

No, it doesn't affect robots crawling.
Right click is not the best solution, as said anyone can disable its Javascript and get your photo.
This said, you can do nothing about guys copying your pictures and against the Crtl+Alt+Print Screen.

Hi Span,

Is it a Javascript link that opens the popup? If so, make sure robots can follow it.

Is this really a good to have robots indexing your popup window? I hate getting content from popup window from search engine (no header, sometime no links, etc). Yaelede, try not to use popup windows if you can.

Thank you for your inputs.
It's NOT a JS link that opens the pop-ups, so I think it's OK.

Actually I DO want to have robots indexing these popups, since they have unique headers and links as well. I think it depends on the content of popups.

Thank you
