Quick Guide on Google Fetch and Render
This guide is basically for the reader who came across Google Fetch and Render for the first time as well as who wants to add little more information about what they know.
When it comes to the Google updates we all hold our breath because when ‘Google dance we shake’ 🙂
Why do they need to release this tool when they had page fetch algorithm?
But now there are other parameters who decide the quality of the website and it includes design elements and Ads spaces. The way GoogleBot see the website now is more similar to what we see and easy to decide how to index and rank.
When we request GoogleBot to fetch and render we can also choose the device type as Desktop, Smartphone or any other device. Sometimes we may get the ‘partial’ rendering that means GoogleBot is not able to crawl some elements. You can click on the result for the rendering result. See the image below for Mobile/Smartphone version after GoogleBot crawled. Image shown above is desktop version.
Commonly we use Desktop and Smartphone version if the site is built in XHTML then also check Mobile XHTML/WML.
For any further query please feel free to comment. Suggestion and feedback are highly appreciable.
NEXT IS BEST 🙂
