It seems that although google say they can index Ajax websites I cannot find any websites where this currently works. Does anyone know of any sites that are indexed?

This site imagemechanics.com.au appears to have a few #! URLs indexed, although none of the /blog/ section appears to be indexed which I think is down to an incorrectly implemented ?_escaped_fragment_=/blog/... URL (required by Google) which results in a 500 internal server error. – w3dk Sep 21 '12 at 23:31

I have also been looking and the answer is no, I can't find any or many.

I think this by itself is something you need to consider. Google doesn't use this, and you can't find any one who does.

Now, should a technology or SEO dictate your approach. YES! You don't have to use #! to use Ajax there are other ways - I've just spoken to our Ajax / JQuery experts here and only one of them have even heard of this (#!) and said don't touch it.

Don't get me wrong, I know Google suggest to use it for Ajax, but from my research (and yours) I think you've answered your own question here!

I know this isn't a direct answer but I hope is useful.

From your link, Google suggests searching for https://developers.google.com/webmasters/ajax-crawling/docs/faq - this does at least bring up a few #! indexed pages. – w3dk Aug 10 '12 at 19:13
Thanks, this was a very helpful answer. I don't know why the question was closed. – Zubair Aug 12 '12 at 8:01
