Welcome to CodeSpread!

There was a requirement to include ‘ratings and reviews’ plugin on the product pages of our website which is provided by a third party. We included a javascript library and some code as provided by agency. On running the website, we were able to see ratings and reviews on the pages as required.

So everything’s done and over but we got a call from SEO agency that  search engine is not able to crawl the reviews which are appearing on product pages. ‘Reviews’ is such a kind of item which evolves and provide a better ranking to website because of its ‘continuously getting updated’ nature.

We were able to see the reviews on our webpage but when we did right-click on the page and checked ‘View source’, we were able to see the empty ‘review’ div with NO reviews. Though I have read somewhere on internet that search engines are not able to crawl the content rendered by javascript, but could not able to find a real time example so never got hold of the concept.

While doing this assignment, it became clear to me search engine crawls only the html rendered [right-click on page and click ‘view source’] and nothing apart from that. To resolve the issue, all the reviews are added on the page as an html and javascript was avoided.

Its easy to find definition and abstract content over the internet but difficult to find any real life experience shared by anyone. This post is one of my leanings through experience so I request you all to share this post with everyone.
