✅ We’re on to WEEK 10 of the A to Z of #seo – which means:
Now, this can get pretty complex but in the spirit of what these 26 posts are all about, I’ll try to keep it simple.
Now, the issue (from an SEO perspective) with JS is that Google/Search Engines have a job understanding (and sometimes getting to) this JS content. They are getting better at it but it does cause them some issues. (I’ll add a link to a Google resource in the comments about this).
…this can cause issues getting your page(s) to rank – if the big G can’t fully understand your pages (and content) it might not rank this pages as well as they ought to be. There’s an extra step – or two – in the process using such Google technologies such as ‘Caffeine’. There are delays because of this extra step too.
In summary – use JS if you have to but don’t use it for everything.
