The pages are plain html, so yeah? Now I’m unsure if search engines can really scrape the entire post history because pagination is done with anchors, I’m not sure how robust anchors are.

An anchor looks like this: https://view.matrix.org/room/!OGEhHVWSdvArJzumhm:matrix.org/?anchor=$c2Qx9k8CB4WBrNsIxW4WxlZ1MqBvYS-tfGFsA7QkxMg&offset=60

Yup this doesn’t seem robust at all. Any message anchor= just points to a message UUID, which means there is a page, showing adjacent messages, for every message. The pages are mostly duplicates.
