    Do search engines follow links inside a noscript tag?

    I'm considering adding a dhtml menu to one of my sites and would add a noscript tag so old browser (hopefully ) will just see that.
    If the SE's do, my problems could be solved... I'm betting it's not that simple though.

    Does anyone have any experience with this?

    LunaC...

    your post might be better off inside the Search Engine forum. There are many people who tend not to get outside the sphere of influence. That is where people who specialize in knowing about search engines would be at.

    good luck.

    Traditionally, search engines ignore all unknown tags, and therefore would ignore the NOSCRIPT tags at the beginning and end of that area. Therefore yes, it would find the text inside of it.

    However, due to many recent changes in the search engines to combat SPAM, the search engines may actually recognise NOSCRIPT tags and ignore their contents, or ignore the whole page if there are excessive keywords inside of it.

    You should put in the NOSCRIPT tag what is appropriate: and it should work fine. It will be indexed by some search engines. You shouldn't try to use it as a spam technique.

    There's a general rule I've seen around here: if you think you're the first one to think of it, chances are that you're not, and the search engines have woken up to it already.

    Sorry I couldn't answer your question specifically though.

    Thanks for the replies.

    No, I'd never put just a list of keywords in it. I've seen many times that anything spammy is found by the SE's and the site is banned... not worth it imho. I'm hoping they will follow valid links however.

    I guess I'll try it and see what happens.
