Prerender® Your JS
Prerender® Your Ember
What is Ember.JS?
One of Ember’s defining features is that it’s built on the Glimmer engine, one of the fastest rendering technologies out there. That means that your Ember pages will load at lightning speed, which will make both your users and Google happy.
Ember is designed to have more functionality straight out of the box so your developers can get straight to work without using a lot of other plugins or add-ons.
SEO Considerations With Ember
Ember has challenges similar to other SPA frameworks such as Angular or React, like getting its pages indexed by Google in a timely fashion. However, it also has solutions to those challenges that the other frameworks lack.
Plugins such as FastBoot exist to render your Ember app server-side for search engine crawlers, then revert back to client-side rendering once the required content is downloaded and available.
However, using FastBoot has some drawbacks. For one thing, the number of supported applications compatible with FastBoot is limited. It also requires you to run a full DOM when you use JQuery.
Alternatively, you can use Prerender®, which is compatible with Ember and requires no extra development time!
Prerender® Your Backbone
What is Backbone.JS?
Backbone SEO Challenges
Backbone uses AJAX to make a RESTful JSON interface.
AJAX doesn’t create unique URLs for each page. Instead, it encodes each individual URL with a # map.
This is a problem when it comes to getting your Backbone pages properly indexed because Google officially stopped crawling “#!” URLs as of 2018.
Google Webmasters provides some documentation to help solve this problem. However, it’s a complicated process that takes some fiddling around with Google Search Console.
You could do that, or you could use Prerender® to properly format your URLs for you. That way, you can continue to use Backbone to its fullest potential without having to worry about whether Google will read your URLs properly.
You just make sure your Backbone web app is working, and we’ll take care of the rest.
