Is Ajax SEO friendly??
We've just launched our company website http://www.fsb.ltd.uk It's a single page website! All the contents are being loaded using Ajax in json format data. I and my friend bappi has developed it.
But now I'm worried about SEO. We've used history manager for hash management, so anyone can share any link with his friends. The question is, "Are the search engines able to parse the contents for hash enabled Ajax web pages?"
As I'm new in ajax+seo concept, I would like to request you for helping me out.
Thanks in advance.

Simple answer: Ajax and SEO dont mix.
The best solution is always use alternatives
AJAX is nor supported by search engines.
Ensure baseline application is built first and then you can take AJAX to take the user experience one step forward.
AJAX breaks the normal browser refresh
- This means content not necessarily corresponding to URL
- No addition to the browser history
- No history, no back button
Fix this by Add Unique page IDs to each Page:
- But is that a duplicate content issue? But typically # signs do not count as duplicate content, they ignore that.
- Make sure not to cloak, it is very easy to cloak in this case, dont do it
- Looks nice
- Most content is served through AJAX
- AJAX navigation
- Amazon Diamond Search (www.amazon.com/gp/gsl/search/finder?ie-UTF8&productGroupID-loose_diamonds
- He shows off the diamond search feature with sliders
Yahoo wants to make some general points:
- Yahoo will understand this stuff, they will get there, so dont assume stuff right now
- Open up your CSS so Yahoo can peak into it
- He also brought up Sitemaps as a way to also submit content (Site Explorer)
- Search engines arent built to interact with the site, like users
Yahoo added again, again. simple user...Build it for the simple user and not the search engine.

First of nice site :) clean design!
Regards your question; Ajax isn't search friendly at the moment but Google and Yahoo are working on it!
I'd say as you have it at the moment the on-site seo is not looking good!
An easy solution would be to create a non ajax working version of your website and add the ajax where necessary! This is never a nice solution to a programmer :)
Also your meta tags are not looking good! They need to be different for each page, this is the same for your keywords.
Get these sorted and also target some keyphrases. Your title tag should contain the keyphrase you are going for. No one will be looking for future solutions for business (even though most companies should be). How about "Web Design Luton" ? For starters :)
All the best with your venture.
p.s Make sure you add a sitemap.xml & robots.txt too!

It all depends on how you use it. AJAX is a tool for a specific function - providing dynamic updates to a page without having to reload the page or go through the post/get cycle. If you are coding correctly, depending on how you use it may limit the use of back/fwd navigation and bookmarking, but to be quite honest these aren't really applicable for the type of page that heavy-duty AJAX should be used on. As for search engine friendliness, again this _shouldn't_ impact at all if it is used correctly.
