Google Will Only Spider Index Page
Posted 11 December 2004 - 02:29 PM
A search for 'soccer transfers' gives me a first page ranking on most search engines (10th on page one on google, 3rd on page one on Altavista) but searches for actual text from my site come back with nothing.

Is the script blocking or preventing the search engines from spidering the site correctly
- One solution is to get rid of the menu bar and go back to what you had before
- Add text links at the bottom of your pages
- Add <noscript> tags next to your menubar, and include links to your pages (don't overdo it though - you wouldn't want to get penalised for spamming)
Hope that helps - let us know how you go!

A simple verticle list with buttons is here:
Look through some of the others there. Some of them may be pretty close to what you want.

HTML links are needed. That's an absolute. Do what you like, but if your links are not links (that means anchor tags with HREF attributes), they will probably not be crawled by any spiders.

Its a drop down menu using entirely CSS , except of a small part because IE doesnt support some thing yet.
I believe this must be ok with the search engines but i not 100% sure.
Maybe the experts here can let us know

The problem is the sub menus are not displayed in Opera. e.g. in IE6 if you highlight :
the sub menu :
is displayed. In Opera they are not.
A breakdown of the code is here :
If anyone can figure out how to make the script fully compatible with Opera (and other browsers) I would be very grateful as I paid someone earlier in the week to make me a script but it didn't work out so I'm back to square one.
