Apologies for giving so many suggestion. Anyways hope I can be of any help

We know that it is difficult for search engines to read drop-down menus plus when on a a a wallpaper page if we go into the source code of the browser, we can see that there is still a function which have not been interpreted by the browser.

For example:


<select class="select" id="resolution" name="resolution">
<option value="">Select Resolution:</option>
<optgroup label="4:3">
<option value="1600x1200">1600x1200</option>
<option value="1400x1050">1400x1050</option>
<option value="1280x960">1280x960</option>
<option value="1024x768">1024x768</option>
</optgroup>
<optgroup label="16:9">
<option value="2560x1440">2560x1440</option>
<option value="1920x1080">1920x1080 (1080p)</option>
<option value="1600x900">1600x900</option>
<option value="1280x720">1280x720 (720p)</option>
</optgroup>
<optgroup label="16:10">
<option value="2560x1600">2560x1600</option>
<option value="1920x1200">1920x1200</option>
<option value="1680x1050">1680x1050</option>
<option value="1440x900">1440x900</option>
<option value="1280x800">1280x800</option>
</optgroup>
<optgroup label="Apple">
<option value="1024x1024">1024x1024 iPad</option>
<option value="640x960">640x960 iPhone 4</option>
<option value="320x480">320x480 iPhone/iPod Touch</option>
</optgroup>
<optgroup label="Blackberry">
<option value="360x480">360x480</option>
<option value="320x240">320x240</option>
</optgroup>
<optgroup label="Google Android">
<option value="1080x960">1080x960</option>
<option value="960x854">960x854</option>
<option value="960x800">960x800</option>
<option value="640x480">640x480</option>
</optgroup>
<optgroup label="Netbook">
<option value="1366x768">1366x768</option>
<option value="1024x600">1024x600</option>
<option value="800x480">800x480</option>
</optgroup>
<optgroup label="Other">
<option value="480x272">480x272 PSP</option>
</optgroup>
<optgroup label="Windows Phone 7">
<option value="480x800">480x800</option>
</optgroup>
</select>

<input type="button" value="Download" onclick="getWallpaper(127, 'center', 'http://www.mywebsite.com', 'greatwallpaper')" />

We can see that there are no direct links to the wallpaper image like:

http://www.mywebsite.com/file/127/1920x1080/16:9/greatwallpaper.jpg
http://www.mywebsite.com/file/127/1280x720/16:9/greatwallpaper.jpg

So it is clear that search engines can't read these URLs and only the human visitor can open these images. This means that there is a huge chance that these wallpaper resolutions will never get indexed and only that small preview image of dimension 600px 338px will get indexed.


So what my suggestion is that instead of the dropdown menu, why not make them real links like this:

Wallpaper available in following resolutions

4:3 : 1600x1200 (http://dsad)| 1400x1050 (dsasda)| 1280x960 (dads)| 1024x768 (dsa)
16:9 : 2560x1440 (das)| 1920x1080 (dsdas)| 1600x900 (dsdsa)

etc
etc

Like this search engines will be easily able to index the higher resolutions too. Lets admit it. Google images shows big resolutions first and then smaller resolutions by default.

I think I will rest my case on this one. I am getting traffic from Google for resolution terms. Looks like drop downs are getting read by search engines.
