    Hi Steve,

    While I am not aware of any official Google documentation on this topic, there are reports on the Internet that Ajax content can be indexed and Google are working on this. You can verify the assumption very easily if you search for Ajax content in the KendoUI demos, e.g.:

    https://www.google.com/search?q=Vins+et+alcools+Chevalier+Toms+Spezialit%C3%A4ten+site%3Ademos.kendoui.com

    So the content appears to be indexed. Of course, at this point it does not seem like something you would count on entirely.

    Just so everyone is aware, it appears that Google DOES index AJAX content from Kendo controls, while at least Yahoo and Bing do NOT.

    Google DOES INDEX:  https://www.google.com/search?q=Hanari+Carnes+site%3Ademos.kendoui.com

    Bing NO INDEX:  http://www.bing.com/search?q=Hanari+Carnes+site%3Ademos.kendoui.com

    Yahoo NO INDEX:  http://search.yahoo.com/search?p=Hanari+Carnes+site%3Ademos.kendoui.com
