I am maintaining a website with several million pages of user generated content.
Therefore, we are thinking about including the [+] and [-] buttons on the AMP page as links to the non-AMP version with a GET param in order to show the calculation result on the non-AMP page.
We are afraid though that this will affect our crawl budget since Googlebot will most likely follow these two buttons for each of the millions of AMP pages.
Is this fear justified and if so, how to handle this situation? Thank you very much!
We have considered the following options:
- use a simple POST form with a submit button for each [+]/[-] button - but according to several sources, Googlebot will often follow simple POST forms as well, so this appears not to be a solution
- use a GET param and tell google to ignore it in the search console - but it seems like this feature is not reliable and outdated anyway
