Mueller raised the issue of using a static website builder to create a website, and concluded that he and Splitt used the same tool called Hugo.
For simplicity, Hugo uses the Markdown language to generate pages, but this has limitations such as not being able to use HTML for nofollow tags and redirects.
Splitter said there was no reason to worry.
A basic example is to hide content behind a button that the user must click to show the content.
As far as SEO is concerned, this is a problem because Googlebot does not interact with anything when crawling a web page.
Splitt refers to “extreme situations” without specifying what they are.
A basic example of this is to hide content behind a button that the user must click to display the content.
From an SEO point of view, this is a problem because Googlebot will not interact with anything when crawling the web.
Therefore, the content cannot be used to understand the page and rank it in search.
Use the “Browse like Google” tool in Search Console to find out what Googlebot can see when crawling your site.
If the Fetch as Google tool is able to render all critical content, then you’re in the clear. No need to worry, as Splitt says.
