I have one question would the Google crawlers be able to crawl through all my links on menu? Here is my site with menu {URL REMOVED}

Thanks

Luke

Hello Luke,

The standard AllWebMenus menu has all its content within the JavaScript files, so search engines that are not able to access JS files will not see it.

There are two tricks you can do to increase your SEO:

First you can create a “sitemap” page (AllWebMenus will generate it automatically for you). If you link this page to your index page (even as a link not noticeable to the human eye) the search engine crawlers will follow it and discover all the menu links. To do this, have a look under “Tools->Create Sitemaps”.

You can also create a Sitemap for Google. Go to Tools-> Create Sitemaps -> Create Google Sitemap.

Second, you can turn your menu into a UL/LI menu. This means that you will have to insert the menu content into every single page (the same way you would do with a CSS menu). This of course adds more maintenance, but the menu links are visible in all pages. If you choose this option, we recommend that you use an include file so that you only have to edit the menu content in a single place if you want to change something in the menu in the future.

You can find more details about both methods in the project properties:

Let me know if you need more information.

Thank you!

Support Case Month: November 2012

Hello again,

Are the menus seen as html or as image from browsers/spiders?
There is one thing that I couldn’t manage yet. How do I show an image/icon before the text/name of main menu and sub menu items? Right now if I set an image than it doesn’t show the text anymore…

Thanks,
Paolo

Reply From: Likno Customer Support

Dear Paolo,

The menus are JavaScript, so they are not directly visible from browsers, in order to avoid “spamming” due to repetition of the same links. This is why you should use the “SiteMap” which you can automatically product from AllWebMenus, and add it to your page for the best SEO performance. (look in Tools for more info)

Regarding the image, do you want to have an image per item, for example on the left side of the text? If so, then you need to specify this in the Project Assets:

select image from project assets

If you want an image on the left of all the menu (not part of an item), then you need to use the “header” properties:

menu header image

Make sure that you also check the relative Style properties:

I have a question regarding AWM.  We are working with someone rebuilding the navigation on our website.  We built our basis with AWM.  He then told us that your program would not support SEO.  I thought that I had read in a few places that it will.  When we are using links in our Navigation will they be recognized by SEO if we build and compile with AWM?

Thanks,
Bob

Reply From: Likno Customer Support

Dear Bob,

It does indeed support SEO in two different ways. The first is by using the included sitemap generators (under the “Tools” menu). The second is by using a “ULLI” menu in which case the menu structure (and links) is directly included in every page.

Please check the “SEO” section under Project Properties for more details.

Let me know if you need more specific help.

Initial Email Subject: XML Sitemap for http://sukiskincare.com/
Support Case Month: April 2012

The site http://sukiskincare.com/ was built with many AllWebMenus (as required by the designers).  Is there a simple way to generate an XML and Google sitemap for all pages of the site?

Reply From: Likno Customer Support

Hello Stan,

We do have a similar feature in AllWebMenus ("Create Sitemap"), however this cannot be applied in your case because:

1. One of your menus (the main menu) is a "mega menu" which means that many items are actually entire HTML (with many links etc.) and this HTML cannot be included in a sitemap entry (which requires just links).

2. Each project will create its own sitemap. There is no functionality for creating a "global" sitemap derived from multiple menu projects.

So, I am afraid that this cannot be done with AllWebMenus (which has this feature for "simple" and single menus) but you can definitely do this easily by using the Google Webmaster tools:
http://www.google.com/webmasters/

This is more appropriate as it will index all your pages, even the ones that are not included in the menu.
