Personalisation

The real-time

it’s products and/or
content, to suit each
visitor’s unique needs and
guide them through a
custom conversion
funnel.

The rise of angularjs
Stack Overflow tags referencing frameworks over time

Single-page apps load a solitary
HTML page into a browser & update
content dynamically, which can
creates fluid UX & flashy interactions
BUT
If your website presentation layer is
generated by AngularJS, the URLs
may be difficult to define, and deep
linking might not be possible.

Ultimately, online experiences are
becoming uniquely tailored to you.

Quickly

There’s one tiny problem with this

I don’t care

Links, static URLs, content, queries,
traffic, indexation….

We’re normally so agile

Why?

“It’s always advisable to use static
URLs as much as possible”

Sites do rank with dynamic URLs

Include hard-coded text links behind dynamic content
Submit accurate sitemaps
Keep both static and dynamic URLs short

Make AJAX crawlable
Create static URLs that link to the same content as each dynamic
URL.

“We'll admit it, moving is never easy
[…] web reputation falls off the truck
in the process.”

If it were up to us; no site would
ever migrate, but that’s unrealistic,
so we help people protect their
traffic.
It’s a service we sell

YES! I love our
new brand
strategy I can’t
wait to see our
new identity
We’ll need to
speak to SEO
about any
changed we
make to the site

YES! I’m so
excited to give
our customers
personalised
messaging

Me too!

As more content becomes dynamic;
SEO needs to be part of that
conversation
