Hiding Dropdown Menu Data From Google

Hi Guys,

I have a website with a dropdown menu of brands, these brands are pulled from the database and then display products matching the particular brand.

The only problem with this is that google is viewing the dropdown data and it looks VERY spammy, its basically a huge list of keywords.

Is there anyway I can stop google from seeing this data so that it doesnt get indexed and is just purely for my visitors to use?

Any ideas would be much appeciated.



I don’t think you can set parts of a page to be ignored by google. Maybe the best option for you is to create the menu with javascript (or load it via ajax).

google is starting to understand javascript, and if it catches you hiding something that looks spammy, it might not be happy.
