    Hi, I'm new here, but not to the web. I'm wondering if anyone knows if Javascript can be read by the search engines? I had a magazine article from 6 months ago that said it was a bad idea to put keywords, text, links in Javascript, but I suspect that that advice is now out of date. Anyone any ideas?

    Thanks!

    Search engine spiders don't like Javascript, it can trip them up so they don't read things correctly, so use external javascript files which are called from the page. You can store all the javascript src files in a seperate directory with .css files, SSI includes, etc with a robots.txt file to stop spiders looking at them.
