Jump Menus Again
Posted 21 October 2008 - 04:29 AM
Do spiders follow links in Jump Menus ? If so which ones do and which ones don't. Here's a Code Sample:
<form name='jump' action="" style="height: 12px; margin-bottom: 5px;">
<select name='menu' onChange='location=document.jump.menu.options[document.jump.menu.selectedIndex].value;'>
<option value="eshop.php">Full Range</option>
Any comments on recent findings would be much appreciated.

The most common way to get those links followed is to remove it from a <form> and instead style a <ul><li> list to look like a form, even though it contains real <a href links.

I have just started to change all the links in my photo gallery from ordinary blue links on the page, to a jump list.
I couldn't see any <form> or <ul><li> tags in the code. A java script makes the whole thing work.
<option value="http://www.aaaa.com/a/b/c/abc.html">A B C</option>
Is this bad for the search engines? Can they follow the links?

In either case, you're throwing up a big roadblock for the search engine spiders. They won't follow through either to my knowledge.

Maybe the time has come to try to get a CSS drop down menu to work.
