    All of these are like 1 page. Are they harder to rank?

    What do you mean? HTML5 has nothing to do with the requirements to be 1 page. Are you talking about infinite scroll or some sort of other feature?

    HTML5 just gives a lot developer freedom to do extra cool stuff like canvas and animation, etc.

    Plenty of html5 sites have more than one page? Are you talking about SPA (single page application)? If so that's done with AJAX.

    I mean most of the html5 sites I see look like this:

    [​IMG]

    It doesn't matter where you click with every button taking you to somewhere on the main page.

    This is compared against regular site design where each option takes you to a different page.

    I'm uncertain about how search engines will like the html5 sites because they are only one page even if they have the identical content on them.

    Actually using anchors to move about on a single page isn't something new to html5. The only difference in html5 is that any element tag can now be an anchor target by adding an "id=" to it, where in previous versions of html, an on-page target had to be an "a name=" tag.

    So the single page website isn't anything new. It just happen to be a popular style right now. I remember they were pretty common back in the late 1990's too. :)
