    Default Are Dynamic Ajax links followed by bots?

    1) Script Title: Dynamic Ajax Content

    2) Script URL (on DD):

    3) Describe problem:
    I am using the Dynamic Ajax Content script on a page with many links like this...

    <a href="javascript:ajaxpage('redcarpet.php','center_product');"><img src="images/medium/redcarpet.jpg" />Red Carpet</a>

    I'm wondering whether google bots would follow and try to index the following type of link?

    I have built alternate pages for all my different content that I'm loading via Ajax. I would prefer that the search engine follow these alternate pages via my sitemap rather than the dynamically loaded content.

    Anyone have an idea how these might be handled by a search engine?

    Generally Javascript is ignored by search engines so backup (or alternative) links are suggested.
    Of course as time goes on and search engines become more sophisticated this may change.
