I have seen that anchor links can not be indexed since the crawlers read www.example.com/page#someanchor as www.example.com/page.

It is the web browser that then interprets the anchors to jump in the appropriate section or open an accordion (my case).

I would like to know if there is currently a way to have a url with this structure indexed by search engines:


The site contains multiples accordions, each anchor link opening each associated accordion.

Found some answers in this blog post, http://blog.analytics-toolkit.com/2014/virtual-pageviews-google-analytics-why-how-when

Explaining ways to achieve it with virtual pages.

But I think that means we can track the tabs/accordions that are clicked in Google Analytics, making these virtual pages indexable is another story.
