    This article is at best misleading, at worst plain wrong:

    “Browsers store the information gathered from the first page into a cookie. That cookie is kept on your computer. The second page reads the cookie so it can have the information that the first page gathered. It’s a programatic headache and security problem, but I’ll spare you the details.”

    This is NOT how the web works.

    “Project managers and SEO advisors should consider the added amount of technical effort needed to make it crawlable by Google. Read: Hash-bang: Good for the web but isn’t ready for prime time”

    Is not that hard, the hard problem is “HTML snapshots” avoiding site duplication, however there are solutions, take a look:

    Thanks for the link! I bookmarked that one. It’s off topic but I found it interesting that the Google Instant Preview bot is actually Safari. The user agent looks like this:

    Mozilla/5.0 (en-us) AppleWebKit/525.13 (KHTML, like Gecko; Google Web Preview) Version/3.1 Safari/525.13

    I guess that means, if it looks good in Safari, it looks good to Google. :)
