Check out this tweet from Google Webmaster Trends Analyst John Mueller:
The web has moved from plain HTML – as an SEO you can embrace that. Learn from JS devs & share SEO knowledge with them. JS's not going away.
John Mueller is correct. It’s not going away.
A quick search on Google Trends for “Single Page Application” reveals the sharp rise in popularity and awareness of SPAs over time:
Take Angular (also known as AngularJS and Angular.js), for example.
In my role as a professional SEO, I can’t say that Single Page Applications are the rule and not the exception when it comes to how businesses choose to develop websites these days, but I am running across more and more SPAs, and so are my colleagues.
- Yes, it’s true that SPAs to date have not been great for SEO.
