When implementing jQuery, it is important to do so in a manner that doesn’t compromise user experience, increase page weight, block valuable content from crawlers, or otherwise reduce the potential SEO value of the site. Below is just a sample of SEO-saving tactics from our recent white paper that you can use when implementing jQuery:
- Manage page size by moving jQuery elements out of in-line code.
- Prioritize essential content (HTML and CSS) to fully render prior to executing jQuery elements.
- Implement fallbacks for users who cannot parse it.
- Prevent elements from not fully rendering or firing in the proper sequence.
- Minimize code and consolidate multiple functions to minify the amount of scripts.
- Avoid conflict with other programming languages.
