I have a website with a page with 10 tabs, each tab's contents is loaded by AJAX.
I would like Google to index the content of the tabs (loaded by AJAX), but Google should allow links ONLY to the parent page (not directly to the pages holding content of the tabs ). Otherwise someone will click a Google link which will take them to the unformatted tab content page.
How would I do this?
unformatted tab content pagesounds like you need to fix this part. You can use jQuery with hash locations or other triggers that take them back to the front page and then automaticlly load the Ajax Tab Content, or you make the linking page accessible when linking, in otherwords the page is mirrored on the link page and triggers the correct tab.
