As was pointed out in a question asked earlier, Google will not recognize when the DOM is altered via JavaScript after initial page load to start at the bottom and scroll up rather than down.

Parallax landing pages and the affect on SEO

Is there an alternative better way that can be considered for achieving the same affect and maintaining the most optimized and correct search results and SEO score?

  • Most parallax websites that I've seen start from the top and you scroll down. What is the advantage of scrolling from the bottom? Jan 15, 2014 at 3:23
  • The content warrants it, and I try not to make choices based on what other people are doing. Jan 15, 2014 at 3:35
  • How much content is on the page? Is it a book's worth or an article's worth? Jan 15, 2014 at 3:38
  • More like an infograph which starts with a flower growing from the bottom of the page Jan 15, 2014 at 3:46

You could invert your results. On DOM load, you use js to invert it again. So, crawlers will read from top to bottom, but when page loads, it will have inverse position.
