Rich McIver has written a piece on The best ways to incorporate the benefits of Ajax without making your site blind to search engines.

The article talks about how not to use cloaking, div layering, and instead:

  • Design your site with degradable AJAX, that way users with JavaScript disabled can view a working version of your website along with JavaScript enabled visitors.
  • After you’ve established a non-AJAX working version of your website, go back and include an alternative AJAX enhancements where you desire.
  • When designing, make sure to check your website with JavaScript disabled as well as through the eyes of a text only browser such as Lynx or SEO-Browser.
  • Perform a browser check to make sure the user has JavaScript enabled, that way you’re only serving AJAX pages to users that can view them.
