Will my links cause indexing problems?

Hi from sunny 19 degree C Wetherby UK :slight_smile:

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 :slight_smile:

[FONT=Verdana]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.

  1. View source, and if you can see the link, then so can a bot. :)[/FONT]

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.

Thank you for all your replies, it very re assuring to get a third party review :slight_smile:
