OK, so we know that it can be tricky to optimize a website that uses Ajax.
But will Ajax influence ranking? Basically, if the Google bot had a hard time crawling the page, but was able to, will that influence how the page is ranked?
Or is ranking a totally different issue from indexing?

Google will still see the page but ajax content isn't crawled by default - so yes, if you have content that you want ranking but it's delivered via ajax request then there's special steps you need to take in regards to URL structure.
