Making 'xmlHttpRequest' content indexable for search engines

Hi, I’m trying to make content on the homepage of my site - called using XmlHttpRequest - indexable to search engines.

I’ve read through the google docs (, but I’m obviously missing something.

My website uses a javascript function to load a php file, passing parameters in the get string. e.g.

The google docs suggest you need to put <meta name=“fragment” content=“!”> into the page to get the content indexed (step 3). I’ve tried putting this meta tag into both the page which calls the javascript, as well as the php page the javascipt calls. By doing a ‘fetch as googlebot’ request, I’m still not getting the content.

Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Many thanks

It can take a while, up to six weeks for google to reindex the content of a page.

Thanks for the reply.
Just to clarify, putting <meta name=“fragment” content=“!”> on my page is not going to make a ‘view source’ show the right content either?

Definately not.
