The ramblings of a developer

Cut down on the treats, your website is going on a diet

Google recently announced that their bots will start executing Javascript on your site. This is huge. This means that now your images, text, and resources loaded within your Stacks or other Javascript files can be indexed by Google. As a result, search terms will be more relevant for the content on your site.

This also brings a glearing issue into the spotlight. All of those Stacks you've been adding onto a page need to be looked at. Google will now have a better idea how your site performs. Therefore, it is important to keep the number of Javascript based Stacks to a reasonable amount. In future articles, we'll discuss some tools to use to measure web performance but, for now, everyone's been put on notice!
