comment Is this way of using Pushstate SEO friendly?
@HelloWorld They cover that a bit later on. My crappy/slow/old/mobile browser still has to do the extra step of parsing and translating your JS and JSON into HTML. Why not have your server (i.e. the bit you control) send it down as HTML in the first place? That's something my browser is really good at :) But this is all getting away from the actual topic: SEO.

@HelloWorld I can't get to the actual article right now (at work) but it seems to be linked from openmymind.net/2012/5/30/Client-Side-vs-Server-Side-Rendering

comment Is this way of using Pushstate SEO friendly?
If your site is serving the right headers, all page requests after the first will pull back relevant external resources (scripts, css, fonts, images etc) from the browser cache anyway, which probably nullifies a big chunk of any advantage you'd gain by using ajax. Incidentally, your ajax method is how Twitter.com used to work. IIRC they moved away from it (back to server-side rendering) because client-side performance was terrible.

comment On which page(s) to add canonical?
If they're exactly the same, why does the second one even exist? It might be better to make the non-canonical URL a redirect to the correct one instead.

comment SEO-friendly masthead with a hidden <h1> and <h2>
In that case you're hiding it from everybody except browsers without CSS support. It'll probably have no effect on SEO because it's effectively not there :) The BS3 .sr-only approach will make it useful to both search engine bots and screen readers.

comment SEO-friendly masthead with a hidden <h1> and <h2>
What does class="hidden" do? If it's just display: none; I suspect the search bots will just completely ignore the content. Something like Bootstrap 3's .sr-only will make it invisible but available to text-only UAs (like screen readers and search bots).

comment Google is fetching body as title
Is your alt text really "mysite logo"? If so, consider that screenreaders users will hear "mysite logo" on every page. Change it to "mysite". Google might well stop duplicating it, too!

comment Microsoft update site has no SSL
That doesn't answer my question. What is it you are trying to achieve? Why can't you simply link to <a href="http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com/">?

comment Microsoft update site has no SSL
What do you mean by "a link"? A simple <a href="https://windowsupdate.microsoft.com/"> or something more complex?
