    Will my links cause indexing problems?

    Hi from sunny 19 degree C Wetherby UK :-)

    On this site www.collegeofphlebology.com there is a bunch of horizontal scrolling links illustrated here -

    Ive got two questions please:

    1. "Will the bots encounter any problems passing through these links" ( I read somewhere certain types of links are roadblocks to the bots )
    2. "How do you test to see if a links triggers nio crawlability issues"

    Thanks in advance :-)

    1. The links only scroll with JS enabled; when it is disabled, the links appear as a list. The link text is there to be read in the source code, so I see no reason why there would be a problem.

    2. View source, and if you can see the link, then so can a bot.

    Hyperlinks created dynamically by JavaScript usually cannot be crawled; if they still work when JS is disabled they can crawl them http://validator.w3.org/checklink might help give you an idea.

    Yes, as TechnoBear said, if you can see the links in the source code, you are fine.
