app.js

We have a set of images that can't be spidered by google becuase they are hidden. How do we get this content spidered here is the code

this is the code app.js and we have determine if it is indeed a java application. It looks more like it is a “shortcut” function to load the jquery library. You can view the code here: http://www.sandals.com/assets/js/app.js
 
This makes sense to us because jquery libraries are often used for media-rich content like slideshows, zoom photo albums and video content.
 
So the page source code that controls the “media-loading” we believe

<script src="/assets/js/views/smb/media.js"></script>
 
Which loads this script:
 
require(['/assets/js/app.js'], function(){
require(['/assets/js/modules/resort-media.js'])
});

The first line appears to call the jquery library into action …and the second line of code referencing the resort-media.js is what I believe actually loads the images, video and all on the page.

So how do we get google to spider the images that this is pulling

If you want the images to be spidered by Google and other search engines even though they are not linked to, follow the two steps below.

### 1 ###

Create an XML sitemap pointing to your hidden images.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sitemaps
http://www.sitemaps.org/


### 2 ###
Make sure that they are not being blocked by your sites's robots.txt file.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robots_exclusion_standard

Use this tool (or a simular tool) to test the link to the image and make sure that they are not being blocked:
http://phpweby.com/services/robots
http://www.frobee.com/robots-txt-check


Then make sure your robots.txt file points to your sitemap.  The last line of your robots.txt file should look  like this:
Sitemap: http://example.com/sitemap_location.xml

Open in new window

We know that.
I'm wondering why you posted in Java TA then? You'd probably be better off posting in web-related TAs

(Your problem comes from the fact that no Spider RUNS javascript -nor Flash-.
They just read HTML... Since your file names are not présent in the initial html source code, they are not visible by spiders.
 Placing them in sitemap makes them visible. You can even place on your site a mini to the XML sitemap, since spiders understand xml
