Google driven design - support for client side includes

During a recent project inception I was surprised to see just how many use journeys were expected to start from a Google search - probably more than half.

With that in mind, I have found myself starting to question any approach that involves a super fast initial page load followed up by Javascript calls to populate the rest of the page - "what will Google see?"

According to this old blog post Google's crawler will happily recognise an AJAX request and call on it to pull through the content, and presumably index it as part of the page.

I love it when a plan comes together (even when it's not my plan).
