How much JavaScript can affect my site's SEO?
« on: 07-03-2020, 00:00:36 »
I have heard John Mu & Martin Splitt from Google speak about Googlebot indexing in two waves - first for plain HTML & then rendering the content (executing JavaScript). Keeping this in mind:

- If my text or images load via JavaScript & not through plain HTML - is that content on page less probable to be indexed?
- How does this play out considering every site has a certain Crawl Budget?

Looking for experiences, thoughts & opinion on this.

Hi,

Javascript sites aren’t bad for indexation but they make Google work harder. Google renders javascript sites more slowly. Hence you will face competitive disadvantage in SERP.

Long story short, JavaScript can complicate the search engines' ability to read your page, leaving room for error, which could be detrimental for SEO. When a search engine downloads a web document and starts analyzing it, the first thing it does is understand the document type
