The Javascript menu I created is not found by search engines, even though I used the populate using UL/LI items option. MY SEO advisor tells me that the display: none setting causes this. Search engines do not like display: none settings anyway.

So I tried converting to a CSS version. However now my sliding vertical submenu does not work anymore. Is that not supported in the CSS version?

Hello Roger,

I am afraid the sliding option does not work on a CSS based menu.

Considering the SEO you may want to use the JavaScript based menu and populate your items through UL/LI structure.

Also, you can use a sitemap so that search engine can crawl your menu items and links. You can do so by clicking on Tools -> Create Sitemaps -> (Create Generic Sitemap / Create Google Sitemap / Create ROR Sitemap).

create sitemap options

Let me know if you need further help on this.

Also, if you need further assistance please export your menu project and send it to me so I can have a better look on the issue.

Thank you!

Kind Regards,

Hi again,

If I’m creating this tab in the web tabs builder and then linking to it in my web page, what is the effect on SEO?  Is the content that I put into the tabs container available to the crawlers?  Ultimately I want the content to help my SEO ranking for that page so if it’s not available to the search engines I can’t use it.

If it is not available is there a way to use this tool so that the information IS available to search engines?

Hello again,

If you define the content within the application, then it may not be visible to most crawlers as they are not capable of parsing JavaScript files.

You do however have the option of keeping the content in your page using either the “UL/LI” or the “DIVs” population method.

With these methods you define the Tab control “look & feel” within the application, but you define the actual content in your page and it is visible to all crawlers and search engines.

For instructions on how to do this:

1) open your project

2) change the population method to “UL/LI” or “DIVs”

3) go to the “Sample Code” tab (F4)

4) check the “code that populates tabs” in the bottom to highlight the population code you need to add to your page

(you can simply copy-paste this to your page)
