A client's site is a 1-pager, where it all runs from the homepage, and content gets pulled through AJAX into the page. Clearly this is bad for SEO.

 

I'd like to not have to re-write the site.

 

However, what if I link to a hierarchical site map, so I can generate unique URLs for that content, so those pages, rich with content will have their own URLs. Would that suffice for "okay" SEO?

I know it still won't do well since in the real world, nobody will be linking to those site mapped URLs organically since the majority of users will use the home page with AJAX, and never have a separate URL to link to except the homepage.

 

But can this still perform well?

Soooooo! What exactly would be the point when as you correctly note "it won't do well in the 'real world'

 

 

But can this still perform well?

The simple answer is, .... No it won't.

Why won't it do okay?

 

It's a product site, and the generated site map will have over a hundred new pages, each with complete on-page SEO, rich in keywords, just no off-page SEO (other people linking to it, since they wouldn't find it). But in theory, shouldn't it do as well as pure on-page SEO can do? Despite not actually being used by humans?

 

In a less competitive industry, which this particular client is in, I figure the on-page SEO should be enough to do okay.

 

Any reasons why it wouldn't?

 

Thanks for any clarity you can offer.

You said it yourself

Despite not actually being used by humans?

 

 

 

Why would search engine even CARE about documents that no one can actually link to, therefore are  absolutely unable to be promoted NATURALLY and as such appear to have no value to anyone.

 


 

rich in keywords,

A.K.A. key word stuffing.

 

You have completely and utterly  the wrong idea of what SEO actually is.

 

Start re-learning  by reading the tips for new SEOs articles.

Because 1999 is a distant memory.
