[Archivesspace_Users_Group] PUI question: external indexing of container list tree link text

I would suggest crawling the OAI endpoint for indexing, but linking to the PUI record.
oai_ead metadata just EAD in an OAI wrapper, and has the complete resource tree. 
The problem with that is that not everyone may have configured OAI or made it public. 

But yes: that’s a problem with progressive web apps: all of the data you want indexed isn’t in the page. 
I wonder if there is a way thru google webmaster console or sitemaps to configure this sort of action, i.e.
Use this other URL to index this resource.

As many of you probably know these are coded as URIs in the HTML-source and are only rendered as visible text at runtime via javascript and css in the browser.

Additionally, our crawler sometimes times out on large PDFs as it can take ASpace a while to generate them at runtime.
