Search Engine Friendliness

I added a few search engine friendly features. This includes:

  • Text links to Cadets / Members area on the main index. This allows the search engines to easily link through, making it easier for them to catalog the site.
  • Full text navigation in footer of members area. Because we have a DHTML menu, search engines aren’t able to search the site. So I added a text menu at the bottom of the page so that you could get to each area from every page without using the menu bar.

This is the first step in our Search Engine optimization plan. It’s our hope that we can get more search engines to rank us higher if our site is a little more friendly.
