In this guide, you can read and learn about the product Pages and how it will work with your Search Engine Optimization (SEO) efforts and strategy.

How Google Crawls the Pages & Content

It is possible for Google to crawl pages with JavaScript. With JavaScript content, the crawling will add an additional step besides the traditional phases of crawling and indexing. It will be:

  1. Crawling
  2. Rendering
  3. Indexing

This means that it will not affect your SEO efforts and optimization when using our product Pages.

It is important to note that the first initial run of the crawl might take some time to parse as it crawls without JavaScript and then it will be added onto it to have it enabled.

If needed, it is also possible to utilize Hello Retail's API to server-side render the category pages. You can read about it: Introduction to Pages API and API Integration.
