    I was wondering teh following:
    In search of SEO friendly url's Implemented "Routing" in my ASP.NET webform application. This gives us nice url's like:
    for example.
    Now, working on a different application with AJAX and one page that loads usercontrols (modules) I was wondering how to combine the two of them. Is that even possible? Because the first application I mentioned does a URL click for a product view, while the second does it internal and keeps www.portal.com/default.aspx in the address bar...

    Any ideas of experiance about this anyone?

    Hello Erik,

    As you already observed with ajax only part of the current page is updated. Where as a request to a new page, with different Url requires a full postback. A mix between both can be achieved with implementing history through the ScriptManager. However I am not sure how SEO-friendly this approach would be.

    Best wishes,

    Hello Iana,

    Thanks for the response. I will update this post if I find more information in the future.

    for now, I found this, somewhat old, blog post. It speaks about using a "ghost" href in server controls (buttons/links) for crawlers and a query string for permalinks.
