In this message, GoogleGuy says that javascript-y stuff isn't too harmful on a member's site - but he also advises that the member remove the javascript-y stuff. Hmmm....

Freshman, the more I talk about a specific domain (e.g. you don't have any penalties), the more the mods worry that lots of people will start mentioning specifics--and that's against the charter of the board. So re-read all our webmaster pages if you haven't, and read Brett's essay if you haven't, and then general comments may still apply to you.

Crow_Song, javascript-y stuff isn't too harmful, but I don't remember seeing a site map. Site maps are your friend. If the domain has truly moved forever, then you should have a 301 in place from the only host to your new host--verify that is so. Someone else mentioned that individual pages can be suitable for garnering links. I noticed a few pages indexed because it looked as though they have their own links. You may want to include a static link on every page back to the root of your site.

But my main advice is still to get a few more links (e.g. from within the university; campus directory, etc.), and instead of the javascript-y mouseovers, go with static links without fragments (the '#' stuff I saw a lot while mousing over the root page).
