Create "spiderable" drop-down menus that every search engine will scan!
By using Optimized Dropdown Menus Widget, you’ll be able to create dropdown menus that are searchable or “spiderable” by search engine bots.
Basically, it works like this:
The menu's markup code is being printed as an ordinary nested menu. e.g.
<ul> <li><a href="http://example.com/page">Some Random Page</a></li> <li><a href="http://example.com/page-another">Another Page</a></li> <li><a href="http://example.com/yao">Yet Another One</a></li> </ul>
<select> <option value="http://example.com/page">Some Random Page</option> ... <option value="http://example.com/page">Something else</option> </select>

Soon there will be an option for developers to use the same functionality via the code. e.g.
<?php optimized_dropdown_menu( $menu_args ); ?>
Currently, these translations are available:
