A Simple JavaScript 
SEO Solution to Implement

Try it for yourself—it only takes three simple steps to get up and running.

Common JavaScript SEO workarounds like SSR are very expensive, labor-intensive, and complicated to master—but that’s not how Prerender works.

Our Google recommended solution isn’t only friendly to search engine bots but to you too! Whether you have an enterprise site with 1M+ URLs or a small website with 10, Prerender boosts SEO performance at scale without complications.

Flexible and Easy to Use

SSR Comes With Flaws

Server-Side Rendering (SSR) is an ongoing investment that isn’t cheap.

To set up your own server, you’re looking at weeks of engineering, a lot of manpower, and hefty costs. That excludes the maintenance and scaling-up expenses, and the universal libraries installation (e.g., Next.JS for React) for websites that use JavaScript frameworks. Furthermore, SSR weakens the First Input Delay (FID) scores—one of the Core Web Vitals (CWV) metrics. 

SSR may provide visually ready pages faster, but the functionality of the web elements still lags behind. This means there is a time gap between your pages being visually ready and fully interactive, which can affect bounce rates.

*Our middleware is a code snippet that responds only to requests made by search engine bots. Every time Googlebots make a request, Prerender is signaled to intercede and speed up the content-serving process by giving them the relevant static HTML page. Human-made requests are handled by your server through the normal routes.

Simpler Implementation FAQs​

Learn about Prerender, technical SEO, and JavaScript on our dedicated FAQs page.

Prerender is for any business that has a website built in JavaScript. We help to increase SEO performance without compromising user experience. 

Whether you have an ecommerce, real estate, or other industry website, our robust prerendering solution can process even 100 million URLs flawlessly—empowering you to compete with HTML-based websites without removing the dynamic elements of your JavaScript web pages. 

Three main reasons why Prerender is better than SSR: it’s cheaper, has a 100% success rate, and doesn’t come with side effects. 

  • You can start using Prerender from $0, whereas you need at least a $72k upfront investment for SSR plus extra expenses for maintenance and upgrade costs.
  • The high costs of SSR still don’t guarantee the system will work for your website. Prerender, on the other hand, is a plug-and-play solution that is compatible with most programming languages.
  • SSR hurts your First Input Delay (FID) scores which damages SEO rankings. On the contrary, Prerender only gives you benefits (increased SEO scores and faster PageSpeed) with no negative surprises.
