    What is JavaScript SEO? | Ask Bartosz Anything

    Javascript SEO is something that emerged a few years back, and I’m proud to say that we were the first ones to address that on scale. Javascript SEO emerged from technical SEO, when more and more websites started using Javascript. When we found out that Google is not very good, and other search engines as well, with crawling and indexing Javascript, a whole new branch of technical SEO emerged called Javascript SEO. The core focus of JavaScript SEO is making sure that Google and other search engines can index and understand your JavaScript content just like they understand HTML content.

    Wikipedia API – Intro to AJAX

    We’ve got two out of our three asynchronous requests working. Let’s get some Wikipedia articles about the page to show up. We’re on the MediaWiki API page, because Wikipedia is run by MediaWiki, and looking through this page, you’ll actually find you don’t need an API key. However, making normal JSON requests to Wikipedia would result in a cross origin or a cross-site error, because Wikipedia servers forbid cross origin requests. There are several ways we can make this request to Wikipedia. One would be to set the origin and content type headers on the request and then Wikipedia would allow it. Or, we can just use JSONP. In our…

    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…
