Hello,

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:
 www.portal.com/products/Show/UX-7624
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?

Thanks,

Erik

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.

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.
