What do you think would be an alternate way other than long scrolling pages?
Not sure why Google is going towards not indexing contents behind tabs/ajax/accordion/collapsed content.
So, Google sees the content but it's not going to rank that page for the optimized keywords if it's in the collapsed content section
@TheMadScientist - Do you really think using a 'fragment id' can help the collapsed content rank for certain keywords that the collapsed content is optimized for?
Because they probably figure if it's important (or legit), you wouldn't put it in a collapsed content scenario.Do you think they are smart enough to distinguish between abusive collapsed content and the the legit ones aimed at improving user experience? I think the move is not quite good since Google asks to create websites for users not search engines. May be not anymore.
I don't know if it's still the case, but a while back Moz published an experiment that showed that links from one part of the page to another using # were not only counted, but more than one anchor text was noticed (previous tests having shown that Google counted first anchor only when page A linked more than once to page B).Yeah, I read that too. That seems to helps to break the believing of only the 1st anchor text on a page counts when there are multiple anchor texts pointing at the same page. I believe that's more of a ranking factor than whether the actual content is considered for indexing or not. Even that might have changed now until it's proved wrong with a new case study.
so SEs and visitors can link directly to the version of the page that displays the hidden contentCan you please explain this part? I don't get it. Thanks!

This means: Can you link to the page in a such a way that the hidden content shows open when you first land on the page? E.g. if your default tab is tab1 and the hidden content is on Tab#2, can you link to this URL in a way that tab#2 is initially open?
Will not that make the Tab#1 content disappear from Google index?
