Only generating a few pages
« on: August 25, 2010, 08:42:23 PM »
Hello super smart admin!

The site I am currently working on for a client is only generating 8 of many pages of the sitemap.  Some are in the root folder.  A couple are in other folders. I have NO idea why it is only finding a couple of the pages.  Can you please check it out and let me know if you find anything?  Thank you!  Website is: [external links are visible to admins only]

Hello,

please let me know an example URL that is not included in sitemap and how it can be reached starting from homepage.

The About Us page is one that is not included.  [external links are visible to admins only]
It is accessed in the drop down menu under "home"

It might be easier if I give you a list of the only pages that are included.

membership/contact_m.html
stingrays/stingrays.html
/calendar.html
/online_services.html
/request_online.html
/services_faq.html

Initially I thought it might have something to do with the template but the pages listed actually come from 3 different templates.  One page (request_online) shares a template with other pages that are not included and it is the only one from that template that was included.  So I tossed that idea aside and thought I'd just ask in here.  Thanks!

Hello,

the dropdown menu in your case is handled with javascript (top_menu.js file), so it's inaccessible to bots. You should have the links with html <a href=""> tags to get them indexed.
