    Node.js Now with Dan Shaw

    [APPLAUSE] DAN SHAW: How’s everybody doing? So before we kick off into my talk and my janky graphics, is this on? Can you hear me? AUDIENCE: Yeah. DAN SHAW: Great. I’m going to kind of lay out where we’re going this evening. So we have a very interesting kind of eclectic mix for you, and that very much represents the world of Node. We’re in the enterprise, in embedded devices, in mobile, all over the place, so I’m going to share some of my experience, some of what I’ve been helping grow in the Node community. And then after me, we’ll have Trevor Norris, Node core contributor, and we’re going…

    Should I disallow crawling of all of my site’s JavaScript files?

    MATT CUTTS: Today’s question comes from Zurich, in Switzerland. John Mueller wants to know, “Googlebot keeps crawling my JavaScript and thinking the text in my scripts refers to URLs. Can I just disallow crawling of my JavaScript files to fix that?” Well, you can disallow all JavaScript. But I really, really, really would not recommend that. If there’s perhaps one individual JavaScript file that’s the source of the problem, you could disallow that. But in general, it can be really helpful for Google to be able to fetch, and process, and execute that JavaScript to learn what other links are on the page. So in general, I would not block…

    The World Wide Web: Crash Course Computer Science #30

    Hi, I’m Carrie Anne, and welcome to CrashCourse Computer Science. Over the past two episodes, we’ve delved into the wires, signals, switches, packets, routers and protocols that make up the internet. Today we’re going to move up yet another level of abstraction and talk about the World Wide Web.This is not the same thing as the Internet, even though people often use the two terms interchangeably in everyday language. The World Wide Web runs on top of the internet, in the same way that Skype, Minecraft or Instagram do. The Internet is the underlying plumbing that conveys the data for all these different applications. And The World Wide Web is…

    Don’t block Googlebot from crawling JavaScript and CSS

    Hi everybody. Matt Cutts here. I just have a short public service announcement rather than a question today. And the PSA is this. If you block Googlebot from crawling JavaScript or CSS, please take a few minutes and just take that out of the robots.txt. And let us crawl the JavaScript, let us crawl the CSS, and get a better idea of what’s going on on the page. A lot of people block it because they think, this is going to be resources that I don’t want to have the bandwidth or something. But Googlebot is pretty smart about not crawling stuff too fast. And a lot of people will…

    Node Toolchain for Newbies: More Libraries for Node.js Projects

    The next library is the go-to library for querying your… HTML, HTML data! Let’s say you’re building a web crawler. What is the web crawler or web scraper? They are certain scripts, there are certain applications that go to URLs and then they, they interpret that data, they store it, they index it, put it in the database. They do something with that data. So you can use the jQuery syntax the good old familiar jQuery from the front end in your back-end to get to some element or maybe you’re performing some testing. For the testing on the back end it’s nice to use this jQuery syntax you want…

    What does Google think of single-page websites?

    We got a question from Frederik in Munich, Germany. Frederik wants to know, what does Google think of single-page websites? They are becoming more complex. And there are some great websites using only a single page, plus lots of CSS and JavaScript, bringing the same user experience as a regular website with many subpages. That’s a really good question because there is a trend. You’ll see the conference page, or the hot start-up, where you just keep on scrolling forever. And they have a whole lot of content, and sometimes they do cool, dynamic stuff. So Google has gotten better at JavaScript. And a lot of times, if you’re doing…
