ajax menu and web spider problem

hi
I just get a problem. in my site all my menu is using Ajax(like the
componentart menu). but the website is heavily rely on the web search engine
to promote(like Google bot). I think most of the web search engine use a web
spider to go through your site. It seems the Ajax menu will screw up this.
Is anyway to solve this issue(keep the Ajax menu and make my site available
to the engine)?

Cheers

This is one of the thorny issues with AJAX. I don't know of a way to fix
this gracefully. Perhaps someone else has a suggestion.

You should probably make a google sitemap for your site so google will
understand the basic structure of your site despite the AJAX menu.

You could do "cloaking" but it's risky...
Have you tried our menu?
