We have an Angular JS eCommerce site (windows server).
We tried using a caching service (prerender) that served up a
<meta name="fragment" content="!">
on each of the internal product pages. But there was something that was preventing the cached page from being shown to Googlebot. We could not figure out what that something was. We're not running any scripts/etc that would interfere with Googlebot receiving the cached page from the 3rd party service.
I was brought in to do the marketing/SEO and my technical experience (and past success) has been with Wordpress and Linux servers.
Do you think if we remove the 3rd party caching system, Google would be able to crawl our site (I was told the reason they went with a 3rd party caching system was due to all the soft 404's they were seeing in GWMT...I just started the job a few weeks ago).
Or do you have have any advice on how to get Google to crawl and index our site normally? "Switch to Wordpress or other CMS" isn't an option at this point in time (maybe towards the end of the year).
