Published

Here is a recap of what happened in the search forums today, through the eyes of the Search Engine Roundtable and other search forums on the web.


Google has finished rolling out both the September core update and the September product reviews update but we still see some volatility today. Google’s John Mueller is offering to review your public presentations to make sure it is accurate. Google said if you don’t know if your content is expertly written, then it probably is not. Google said there is no percentage to measure duplicate content. Google is testing a new search feature to collect your recipes in a Google Cookbook. Oh, Search On is today, so I should have some news for tomorrow on that.

Google Advice For JavaScript Heavy Sites: Have Content Load First

Published

Google Says Near Duplicate URLs With Canonical Still Can Lead To Wrong URL Ranking

Gary Illyes from Google posted a PSA (public service announcement) of sorts on Mastodon and LinkedIn for sites that are heavy with JavaScript. He said that you should try to load the content, including the “marginal boilerplate” content, first when you have a JavaScript-heavy site.

He said this is recent advice based on seeing a “bunch” of emails with complaints from SEOs where they see “lots of dups reported in Search Console.” He said when he tried to load the pages in his browser, it “took forever to load,” “so rendering timed out (my most likely explanation) and we were left with a bunch of pages that only had the boilerplate. With only the boilerplate, those pages are dups,” he added.

So if you see this issue in Google Search Console for your JavaScript heavy site, then try it, try to load the content first.

Here is what Gary posted:

Do you have a JavaScript-heavy site and you see lots of dups reported in Search Console? Try to restructure the js calls such that the content (including marginal boilerplate) loads first and see if that helps.

I have a bunch of emails in my inbox where the issue is that the centerpiece took forever to load, so rendering timed out (my most likely explanation) and we were left with a bunch of pages that only had the boilerplate. With only the boilerplate, those pages are dups.

Gary later added on Mastodon, “Search engines are in fact very similar to a user’s browser when it comes to indexing, but a user doesn’t access billions of pages (or however many search engines typically access) every day, so they must have stricter limits.”
