Meteor/React - Nothing in text brower or Google crawler

Hey everyone,

I am struggling as I developped a quite complex app for a client using React and Meteor. Everything works fine but somehow the SEO is quite catastrophic. The source code for the rendered website in the body is only 2 scripts tag :

<body><div id="app"></div>
  <script type="text/javascript">__meteor_runtime_config__ = JSON.parse(decodeURIComponent(""))</script>

  <script type="text/javascript" src="/4205b5d94d92aa1ae498c93d28adfba603e30a89.js?meteor_js_resource=true"></script>


And that is not appreciated by crawlers or text browser such as Lynx for testing.

I installed but apparently no changes at all in the result …

Any idea how I could solve this ? improve this ? I’m new to this part of the dev and that would be much appreciated to see more clearly. Thanks in advance.

Its not really a Meteor specific problem, Its a problem in general for Client Sider Rendered websites (CSR). For this you need Server Side Rendering (SSR). I’m currently putting a lot of focus and effort in my personal website. Which i’m going to publishtonight!

It contains exactly 1 finished article about setting up SSR with Meteor and React. It exactly fits your needs to make your website SEO / crawl friendly. I will post it tonight (approx 22:00 GMT).
