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!

How do I make the content of Modal Windows available to crawlers? It looks like only compiled code is available, which means Google etc won't find it.

If not, any suggestions?

Reply From: Likno Customer Support

Hello,

This is true only if you use the “Embedded” Content source type. Instead, you can use the “Page Element” source type so that the modal takes its content from the page. This way all crawlers will also see this content.

page element modal window source type

If you want to use the modal to open external pages and especially if want various page links to open in the same modal design, then I strongly recommend using the “Make certain links/forms in page open in this window” option:

make ceratin links open in same modal window

You will find many examples and sample code for this, but if you need more help then let me know your exact needs so that I can suggest the best solution.

Hi Guys,I love your programs and with the 50% discount over Christmas they became affordable.Here is an observation for you, I use your scroller at the top of {URL REMOVED} and when i put this url into facebook the images are not seen, whereas the wow program I also use are.Which makes me think the search engines are not seeing these images.

Dear Colin,

This depends on whether you have the content in your pages (i.e. using the DIVs or UL/LI options) or if you are populating the items inside the scroller project.

If you populate the items within the scroller project, then indeed the content resides in the compiled JavaScript and hence may not be readable by crawlers that skip JavaScript. If you keep the content in your page, then all crawlers will be able to see it.
