    So like, I have a wordpress blog design that I would like to reuse on a lot of different websites. But the menu is text based, getting it changed to a graphical menu is going to be too long, and too frustrating (I outsourced this work, specifically stated I wanted it image-based, was whole-heartedly promised this multiple times, was told they'd upload it 5 days ago, still hasn't been uploaded, etc etc, don't feel like fighting). Is there anyway I can have the search engines NOT crawl the menu? Thanks in advance!

    download All in one SEO for wordpress and there are options to not index certain pages (or just change the text for the menus). Nonetheless, I don't believe that the text on the menus will have much effect on duplicity, esp if it's common words.

    they aren't common words, and I'm pretty sure they've had an effect before unfortunately, I don't want to take that risk again, its high-stakes right now :(

    The menu though will be on all of the websites and I want them to be indexed, but not the menu at the top. So I wanted the pages indexed, but the menu ignored.

    Seems like I'm going to have to changed the menu text around, that kinda sucks :(
