I am managing a new web development that is currently in the tech design phase. I have had a few paranoid concerns that SEO will be a problem on a few pages so would love to get some advice from experts to put my mind at rest!
We have a selection of products that I would like indexed. Each one can be found via and Ajax browser that narrows down a users choice to a final list.
1) i have been assured that if you preload the ajax selection then spiders can find and follow the products on the initial page but not any other products that would require ajax selections. Is this true?
2) The preloaded ajax results for the products are likely to change weekly hence some of the products will not be available to the spiders after a certain amount of time. Does this mean that the ranking of the product pages that are no longer preloaded will drop when the spiders cant find the link? Or is it sufficient to use an XML site map to show that the page are still there? As a solution should we set up alternative static category pages for the products to make sure?
