    Question regarding google and if/why they won't be able to access my pages...HELP>.

    Ok, I put a new navigation bar up on my homepage, and I'm afraid google or other bots won't be able to find it.

    The reason: (it calls on files, the links aren't actually in the page itself: here is the only script in the page for the buttons

    <script type='text/javascript'>

    //HV Menu- by Ger Versluis (http://www.burmees.nl/)
    //Submitted to Dynamic Drive (http://www.dynamicdrive.com)
    //Visit http://www.dynamicdrive.com for this script and more

    function Go(){return}

    </script>

    <script type='text/javascript' src='exmplmenu_var.js'></script>
    <script type='text/javascript' src='menu_com.js'></script>
    <noscript>Your browser does not support script</noscript>




    As you can see it calls exmplemenu_var.js and menu_com.js. Inside exmplemenu_var.js is where I put all the links and its how I named the buttons.

    Why did I think google wont find it? I went to www.google.com and typed in muscle-mustangs. Then I clicked cached, when it went to the cached version of my site, the navigation bar didn't appear.

    Now I just changed that a few days ago, so I don't know if google scrolled my site while the navigation bar was down for a few min or if it just cant read the files...


    any help or suggestions???

    You should always use simple text links to supplement any other type of navigation (whether javascript, flash, or even just image links) to make crawling easy for spiders -- as well as to give an alternative choice to human visitors.

    You see this approach all the time: small text links at the bottom of a page that has essentially the same links more integrated into the design elsewhere.
