Hi there

We have drop down menus on our site which repeat words like MENS WOMENS Wide Narrow... which skew or search engine results. If possible is there a way to render them in JavaScript, comment tags, or other so that search engines will ignore them?

Thanks
-Martin

The challenge is how to show the links without showing the repetitive words. If you generate that part of the menu so that googlebot can't see it, then you dirupt the circulation of link equity a PageRank too.

I'd look into strengthening the rest of the on-page content rather than monkeying with the menu.

You may try images... hacky but it would probably work. If they are not actual links but headers within your nav, you can create a css sprite and set background images for those headers. Would be nice to see a little snip of what the problem is here instead of guessing. I agree with tedster though I'd refrain from getting too cute with the menu.
