I really want these pages to be as indexable as possible. I'm even going as far as an ISAPI rewrite strategy to make the URLs look nice.
What concerns me is that when I look at the page source, I see:
<input type="hidden" name="__EVENTTARGET" value="" />
<input type="hidden" name="__EVENTARGUMENT" value="" />
<input type="hidden" name="__VIEWSTATE" value="dDwtNzQ3MzU5N [... about 30 lines of garbage ...] bR0NUc=" />
it's that _VIEWSTATE variable that I'm concerned about. It's huge. Will it affect my SEO?
And because those variables are visible in the source, any bot worth its salt will know it's a dynamic ASP.NET page. Will my pages be ignored?
Just make sure your URL's are cleaned up and have no querystrings, and you will be fine!
