Meteor indexing

It wasn't long before I noticed something was up with regards to Meteor's website... I have a really hard time googling anything related to Meteor, and the reason is simple: they're using Meteor to build their own web properties. As Meteor is still very much in its infancy, it has no static equivalent--it runs almost entirely in JavaScript.

In the case of Meteor's website and documentation section, this is a simple case of using the wrong technology for the job. Until Meteor can render equivalent static pages indexable by search engines, they should have stuck to plain old HTML.

This will likely become a moot point when Meteor does find a way to address this issue as a feature of the framework, but until then it's absolutely critical to have your website and especially documentation in some indexable format.
