Google Clarifies 15MB Googlebot Limit

Google Clarifies 15MB Googlebot Limit

The other day, I covered how Google added a line to its Google documentation that Googlebot can crawl the first 15MB of content in an HTML file or supported text-based file, after that, it stops crawling. Then I was a bit shocked to see a large number of SEOs begin to panic.

For some reason, SEOs felt 15MB of raw HTML per page is not enough. 15MB is a massive amount of HTML on a URL by URL basis. It does not include downloading videos, images, etc, it is just the HTML source code. Again, it is a huge limit and none of this was new, it was simply just added to the documentation but has been in place at Google for a long time.

So Google’s Gary Illyes did his thing to clarify and posted a nicely titled blog post on the Google blog named Googlebot and the 15 MB thing. In short, Gary explains “You, dear reader, are unlikely to be the owner of one, since the median size of a HTML file is about 500 times smaller: 30 kilobytes (kB). However, if you are the owner of an HTML page that’s over 15 MB, perhaps you could at least move some inline scripts and CSS dust to external files, pretty please.” He digs in more for those who are concerned, so go read it.

Then John Mueller of Google does his Twitter thread version:

Are you still concerned about this 15MB limit?

Will Google Lens Come To Google Search Console Reporting

Published

Search By Image & Text

As Google Lens becomes more and more popular, SEOs are asking, will we be able to see what traffic we get from Google Lens in Google Search Console? The answer is that Google Search Console currently does not support showing Google Lens traffic or data and likely won’t in the foreseeable future.

John Mueller of Google was asked about this and he said on Twitter “Regarding Search Console, my feeling is it would need to be in a separate report, and Lens is probably still too new to be in a place where it won’t change significantly. John did add that this is “something Search Console can report on in the same way for the long term.”

Here are those tweets in context:

So I really wouldn’t expect much from Google Search Console and Google Lens here anytime soon but we can keep on asking.

Oh, by the way, Google Lens is just magical.
