---- Is Googlebot indexing content loaded via JS lazy load?

The care must be taken if you use GET rather than POST because GET can be indexed as a separate URL.
Thank you for bringing up an important question, aakk9999. I don't think you can use POST here - they are looking for a URL crafted in a particular way, so it has to be GET.
I would assume you cannot block http://www.example.com/?_escaped_fragment_= else Gbot won't be able to read it. You also cannot (as my limited understanding of the process goes so far) meta noindex it because you do want it to be processed. So, which URL then will show in the SERPs?
It looks like it's going to affect the site's ranking in at least two ways:
The crawl budget will be effectively slashed in half because each page needs to be downloaded twice (each of the two different versions)
There is a chance ?_escaped_fragment_= version will show in SERPs, and not the normal URL, in which case you still have to redirect mobile users.
Has anyone implemented this yet? Any experiences to share?
