Questionnaire Content

Good Afternoon All,

I seem to be asking more and more questions on here as of late!

I was hoping someone would be able to help me with the below query..

I am creating a questionnaire for a client, which i have been advised from my developer would be best to implement within Javascript so all content and buttons etc are within the JS. I am still new to the world of SEO and was wondering does Google crawl content that sits within JS? Is this even a good method from an SEO perspective?

If Google does crawl the JS is it worth then the questions being keyword rich and focused around the areas in which we are hoping to attract or will this be a waste of time?

What are other peoples methods to optimising a quesitonnaire for SEO? Would schemas help at all?

Sorry if this question is abit all over the place!

Any help would be much appreciated!

Morning Dale, Keep the questions coming :)

Google has been able to crawl JS for some time now, checkout this article to get a more indepth outlook on whats possible ( baring in mind this is from 2015 )

Google has its own JavaScript MVW framework AngularJS and you have other large support for React and other progressive apps.


1. You also have to consider that although Google have the ability to crawl JS, they are not the only search engine out there so if its a vital element to a we pages search exposure across all search engines then consider your options carefully.

2. Try and use last modified dates for your sitemaps so search engines know when something within JS has been updated

3. Be careful with URL output of JS if its a pure JS website/page, hashes in URL's are generally considered to be poor usage.

4. Finally, check, check and check what is seen and what is not. Developers are developers, mistakes are made and everyone has different code quality and ability. Don't take someones word for it that its SEO friendly. Head into search console, do a "fetch by google bot" and see what Google bot is actually seeing, If the element isnt shown in the Fetch...............its not SEO friendly.

The question as to weather you should pump it full of SEO friendly phrases and microdata/schema...........If the shoe fits, Its just another element of a page, so it should follow the same on page SEO rules, if there is benefit to be had either for user experience or small SEO win then it should be done. Schema in particular can be very helpful in helping search engines identify what your page is all about.
