As it discussed in the latest episode of Search Off the Record podcast which consists of Google’s Martin Splitt, John Mueller, Gary Illyes, and Daniel Waisberg.
Mueller put up the topic of creating a website using static site generator which realizes both of them uses the same tool, Hugo.
To make easier Hugo uses Markdown languages to generate pages & with a limitation to not understand the HTML for nofollow tags & Redirects.
Split says there is no reason to worry about.
Here’s the Splitt’s words to Mueller:
No, you don’t have to be worried about that…
But as far as I know, and as far as I can see, we crawl a page and then put the content into the document in our index, and then we render the page, and then we complete the content from the DOM.
As far as SEO is concerned, Google bot does not interact with anything when it crawls a page.
If the tool can fetch all the critical content then no need to worry-Splitt added.
