    Are my internal links visible to google?


    Hi Guys,

    I hope you can help me out. My website designer says it is not an issue, but I think otherwise. I have a new website which consists of a home page and several sub pages. Somehow the links menu from index.html is called for all the sub pages as well (I believe the term may be bootstrap). The link structure looks fine to the end user on all the pages, but my main concern is that it may be invisible to google. For example, if I go to any of the sub pages and look at the source code, the coding for the links menu is not there. Furthermore, if I use the w3c link checker on the sub pages, it doesn't find the links. Am I correct in assuming this is an issue for my internal linking?

    I'd link to post the link to the website so you can get an idea of what I mean, but I think that may be breaking the forum rules (please let me know if I can).

    Thanks in advance :-)

    type the url like this
    domainname(dot) com
    so it's not a link.

    Was that on the index.html page or one of the sub pages? It shows up fine on the home page, but not on any of the other pages.

    I'm assuming the bot's can read them, I'm not a developer so I don't always understand certain code, hopefully someone else can answer that, but I'm thinking it can.
    sorry I can't be more precise. What platform is your site built in?

    No problem, thanks for your input. Hopefully I can get a second professional opinion to ease my mind :-) The website is built using html/javascript/css... No CMS

    Is it possible to move this thread to a more relevant area?

    Links will visible to Google if there has been indexing by search engine bots and they are not put in sandbox.
