SEO on single-page website, will it work?

As discussed in a recent post, I'm looking to make a SPA in React. I know the framework is controversial, but putting that aside, will a single-page website work in SEO? And if not, why?

Single-page websites can be very nice on the eye, but they are not good for SEO. A big part of a strategy in SEO, is internal linking. Unfortunately, a single-page website cannot do this. Meaning all the link juice is funnelling to one page. 

Having multiple pages allows you to distribute your PageRank correctly, and with anchor text allow Google to know what the purpose of each page is for. 

It's very rare to see a SPA rank well in any search engine. I wouldn't recommend.

Good advice?

Work in SEO ? well your terminology is wrong here, yes it will work in SEO but will it rank I think is what your asking. 

For anything competitive the short answer is no, not a chance. A website is typically made up af many pages, each will own their own page rank, this page rank will / should flow around your site boosting pages from your internal linking scheme. A single page fails on this score so unless its going to attract a ton of external backlinks then it will not have the same ranking power as a normal style website. 

For front end development I would advise to steer clear of React or any of the other frameworks until such time they can produce code that bots can read.

The ability to link to another page is not possible with a single page website. ... Also, having external links increases the sites SEO ranking. Though single page websites can be patchy and are in vogue, they do have their place in the market, but it is important to note they are not so good for SEO.

Mainly Website will be Static website and Dynamic Website 

Your Asking about Single page website means Static Website that will shares the information about particular subject 

For example : Social Parchar is Digital Marketing Institute in hyderabad 

So this website will shows only Digital marketing website page Link : https://socialprachar.com/digital-marketing-course-online-training-institute/

Good advice?
