I am designing a website, which will display 5 records initially and as the user scrolls down, it will keep loading contents like facebook news feed.

If i submit this site to google for crawling, will it scroll down and navigate to all links or will it just visit the first 5 links that gets loaded initially?

P.S I will also be creating a sitemap and submit it as suggested here


Google now are able to crawl dynamically generated content with javascript, but i don't know if they also crawl javascript that requiring scrolling down page for more content to be generated. Take a look at this http://searchengineland.com/tested-googlebot-crawls-javascript-heres-learned-220157

  • You have a timeframe of app. 3-4s. Content that is not rendered then will not be crawled/indexed. You can che it by using "fetch as googlebot and render" feature in Google Search Console. – Seb Aug 13 '15 at 12:54

If you append a parameter to the URL like # or !, then it's possible to have them indexed. http://example.com/#about
