I know it’s been asked by I haven’t been able to find a clear answer.

Google deprecated the escaped_fragment requirement for JS applications a while back:

Does this mean it’s no longer meaningful to have the Pre Render functionality for Galaxy enabled? To be clear i’m talking about this package: https://atmospherejs.com/mdg/seo

it is still meaningful in my opinion for these reasons:

  • google does actually a very poor job in rendering js pages, altough they claim that they can do it properly. Most of the time, they just fail to render the page completly.
  • even if rendering works, if you have subscriptions there is no way to indicate that your subscriptions are ready to the crawler.
  • The last time i checked the facebook crawler (which reads og-tags when sharing an url) could not render js pages.

Alrigthy, well we’re on the same page then :smiley:

I’ll let it be :smiley: thanks.
