To make search engines find AJAX content, you can implement the following techniques:

  1. Serve a HTML snapshot: Serve a HTML snapshot of your AJAX content to search engines, which can be easily indexed. You can use a service like Prerender.io to generate the HTML snapshot.
  2. Dynamic rendering: This technique involves serving a different version of your content to search engines and users. The version served to search engines will have all the necessary content included, while the version served to users will have the dynamic AJAX content.
  3. Hashbang URLs: You can use hashbang URLs (e.g. example.com/#!page) to make your AJAX content crawlable. Search engines will index the URL and follow the #!.
  4. HTML pushState: This technique involves updating the URL of the page when the AJAX content changes, without reloading the page. This allows search engines to index the new content and provide a better user experience.


It's important to note that these techniques can be complex to implement and maintain. It's advisable to consult with a developer to ensure that your AJAX content is accessible to search engines and users.

In addition to the techniques mentioned above, here are a few more tips to help search engines find your AJAX content:

  1. Implement structured data: Add structured data markup to your AJAX content using JSON-LD, RDFa, or microdata. This helps search engines understand the content and improves the likelihood of it being indexed.
  2. Use XML sitemaps: Include your AJAX content URLs in an XML sitemap and submit it to search engines. This can help search engines discover and crawl your AJAX content.
  3. Optimize metadata: Make sure to optimize the meta tags, such as title and description, for each AJAX page. This helps search engines understand the relevance of the content and can improve its visibility in search results.
  4. Provide unique URLs: Each AJAX-based page or piece of content should have a unique and shareable URL. This allows search engines to index and link directly to specific AJAX content.
  5. Avoid blocking resources: Ensure that your AJAX content is not blocked by robots.txt or any other form of server-side or client-side blocking techniques. Search engines need access to the content in order to index it.
  6. Monitor Google Search Console: Use Google Search Console to monitor how search engines are crawling and indexing your AJAX content. It can provide insights into any issues or errors that may be preventing proper indexing.


Remember, while these techniques can help search engines discover and index your AJAX content, it's still important to focus on creating high-quality, relevant, and user-friendly content.
