So I'm working on this website for a client that is primarily based around photos, it's a gallery of a couple hundred photos arranged in tiles.

Each tile is a location in the world. When you click on a tile, it opens up a gallery and shows more photos from that location.

You can then share this to facebook and consequently on the returning link, pull up this particular place from the URL's parameters.

I found a way to build unique facebook shareable "pages" although they still use the same parent page, just that the template is rendered with different meta tags/opengraph tags.

So for example the url structure is something like:


similarly another site would have a "unique page" like this:


Both places are served under the same index file under the places directory but they're built differently with PHP and the information passed as parameters.

It takes a few seconds for facebook to create the shareable post with the URL but it works.

I just think this is not good for SEO because the same page has different meta tag/open graph tags, unless this is common practice.

I just figured you needed unique pages for every facebook share button to do it "correctly". While my method works, I don't think it is correct.

I'd appreciate any information.

SEO For Single Page Sites.

If you’re not dissuaded at this point, you may be wondering: how do you SEO optimize a single page site?

1. Defined Content Sections

Design each section of content as if it were a separate webpage. Select the keywords you desire to rank for and draft the appropriate headline, copy, image alt tags and any other SEO signals.

2. Separate Content Sections in DIVs

Place each section of content inside its own DIV. Look at the code on The .GIFYS. Their sections include:

<div id="animals">...content...</div>
<div id="art-design">...content...</div>
<div id="cats">...content...</div>
<div id="film">...content...</div>

CSS id names are not considered SEO keyword signals, but it’s a good way to keep things organized. You can also use them for anchor links, which are SEO signals.

3. Anchor Links

We know Google looks at anchor links. Not to be confused with anchor text, anchor links take you to a specific place within a webpage. In search rankings, we’ve sometimes seen Google list anchor links as site links.

On The .GIFYS, each link on the left side navigation menu is an anchor link.

The link http://thegifys.com/#art-design will take you to the Art + Design content section. I like having an on-page navigation section like this.

Try to optimize each DIV id for both usability and keyword SEO. You want them to make sense for people using your website and have a relevant keyword for the section.

To create an anchor link for each section,

Name the DIV id.

<div id="art-design">
Link to it.

<a href="#art-design">Art + Design</a>
From another page the link would be:

<a href="http://thegifys.com/#art-design">Art + Design</a>

4. Give Each Content Section an H1 Tag

This is probably the one time I’ll suggest multiple H1 tags on the same page. An H1 signals that what follows is distinct and separate from the rest of the page. Only use one H1 per section.

The sad fact is, optimizing e-commerce websites for SEO (Search Engine Optimization) Of course, the picture speaks a thousand words, but the search engines  Don't keyword stuff the page with the keyword phrase by repeating it over and over again. You will inevitably repeat the same keywords over and over again.
