About SEO Optimization
The template is ready to be SEO crawlable. DurandalAuth implements the google ajax crawling scheme for pages without hash fragments. You need the default pushstate option enabled.
I created a interface (Helpers/ISnapshot.cs) that needs to be implemented in order to work.
The default implementation uses a new project I created called AzureCrawler
This new project is a Worker Role ready to be deployed to Windows Azure and serving a REST Web API via OWIN. The Web API executes a phantomjs process when receiving requests and returns html snapshots. Moreover, AzureCrawler can save the snapshot to Azure Storage and keep it there with the expiration date you choose, so next time the page is requested for any bot, the stored snapshot will be served.
I created AzureCrawler like a separate project but it´s easy to bring all the concepts from AzureCrawler to your own project if you want to keep it in the same solution. Another option is creating your own implementation of ISnapshot.cs.
Check durandalauth site at google:
Another included feature, very useful for SEO, is the dynamic generation of sitemaps. If you browse to localhost:port/sitemap url an XML Sitemap will be rendered.
Include your own urls in the SitemapController and change the robots.txt for pointing to your own domain.
