There are a few things you can do to make sure your application is still indexable by search engines.

Make use of meta tags in your HTML head, those should be static and not generated by JavaScript.

I suggest you read up on the Unobtrusive JavaScript paradigm and view, controller, model separation.

For example, to help search engines you’ll want as much indexable content in static HTML .. so instead of doing something like this:

var li = $("<li>Home</li>");
li.click(function() { ... });
$("#nav ul").append(li);

Do something like:

<div id="#nav">
  <ul>
    <li class="home">Home</li>
  </ul>
</div>

...

$("#nav ul li.home").click(function() { ... });

That’s a very basic example, but as a general rule of thumb try and keep as much of the logic for how your application will look in HTML and CSS . Then use JavaScript for changing how it behaves.

Probably the result of an optimization I was trying out – it ended up causing too many problems so I’ve reverted the changes, badges should be back to normal now.

Hey Ian – Yeah, we could add one in. Wasn’t sure how much people actually use those. But it only takes a few minutes to add an FB plugin in. I can do it today if you think it’s worth it.

I noticed people used them on the bundle pages quite a bit.. even if only 1 person comments, that’ll still give us some exposure to their friends/followers. Every little helps I guess?
