It will not be indexed by search engines. Ajax-imported content is not part of the page, so search engines won't see it, and almost all search engines use source code only-- they don't use Javascript actively. That might change, but for now it's not reliable at all (if not NEVER indexed).

You need a backup method that doesn't use Javascript-- links and real pages. But for your regular users, you can still use the ajax script.

That's always a good idea anyway in case someone doesn't have Javascript available or if they are on a mobile device that doesn't support Javascript.

thanks for the reply!!
ok so can I make the links go to the actual page IF the javascript is disabled. this way maybe google will find those links...

is there a conditional anchor tag i can make? somehow?
i hear <noscript> isn't either indexed by google...

what about a condition like this?

//if there is javascript//
<script type="text/javascript">
document.write('<style>.'class for links if js is enabled' { display:none }</style>');
document.write('<style>.'class for links with js code { display:block }</style>');

ill have 2 sets of anchors one that does the js and one that doesn't. by default the js anchor is set to display:none; would that work or the anchors will mess each other up
