I'm currently using RoboHelp 9. We are considering using WebHelp format to

publish our Help on our website.

Will Google index the content? If not, will a newer version of RoboHelp

provide this functionality?

Thank you,

Hi,

Google will crawl and index the URLs. You need to submit them at https://www.google.com/webmasters/tools/submit-url?pli=1

Not only google but you can submit the URLs in the same way to other search engines also.

Thanks and Regards,

Surbhi Maheshwari

Be aware that Rh9 may have compatibility issues with the latest browsers. There are posts to confirm that on these forums.

Google will index the pages, but it may not be able to find all the available pages, regardless of RH version and output type. This happens because the crawler won't execute the scripts required to view the Table of Contents, Index, etc. So only the pages that the crawler can find links to will be indexed. These typically are files that are linked to from other indexed locations such as your website.

If you want to have Google, Bing and others completely index your help system, you will have to provide a sitemap. Your developers or web admins should be able to create a sitemap for your help. Or you can opt for my paid solution: http://www.helpessentials.com/downloads/sitemap-generator-for-robohelp/
