    Since content, especially long content, is always good for SEO. However, for some reasons I need to separate a 1500-word article into 10 chunks and add each chunk into slides. Therefore I got a 10-slide slideshow (text, real text, not image slideshow), people have to click on the "Next" button to read the whole article, if the "Next" button is not clicked, the next content will not be shown.

    In my niche, people are lazy to read a wall-of-text so I make the slideshow in order to improve user experience. Yet, is my site devalued since there is only 1 chunk of article in the eye of Google ? (Are google spiders able to click the "Next" button and figure out this ?)

    How is the code written?

    I find they index both, but ajax they can struggle with a little, if your using divs/css and javascript to change between them, it will pick it up better.

    A good way is to look at the source. Depends on how your "next" is coded.

    Some "next" separate it into pages, while some loads it in one page.

    Again, look at the source and you'll know if it appears as one page or separate pages.
