    AJAX & SEO crawling

    We have a site build on SPA - backbone.js . On the SEO front, We need your help here for our site so that google can crawl. It is the problem that we have now discovered is in the construction of the product section, where these URLs are not findable by search engines as they are built via AJAX, aka hash (#) URLs. Anything after the hash is ignored and not crawled.

    Please let us know best options to resolve this problem.

    Thank you,
    Vinay Kumar

    I assume its a single page website that populates the page via AJAX, very much like WIX built sites.
    As far as I know these type of sites fail as they are not SEO friendly in the conventional way.
    You wont like my advice I am afraid, Change platforms to something that works as things should is the only solution for long term success.

    Heya Kvvina - Getting indexation going with AJAX has been a ...developing conversion...to say the least over the last couple year...

    I have some thoughts that may be helpful...

    Firstly: Do NOT listen to blogs and stuff that recommends escape fragments for AJAX related indexation issues

    Google not longer supports this , they recommend html5 push states instead...in fact, even when they did support it, I've never seen any escape fragment pages rank - ever....

    Secondly: Have you ruled out Rendr as an option?

    Check out Rendr, it was developed by airbnb to solve for this - have not tried it personally but it is supposed to render content on client and server simultaneously...here's the link: https://github.com/rendrjs/rendr

    Let me know if this helps or you have any further questions on this...
