VueJS Benefits

Pros and Cons of VueJS

Vue.js works by encapsulating your content in JavaScript and connecting it to an HTML template. When a user interacts with your website or web application, Vue will only update those components instead of the entire page.

However, search engines can’t interact with your page as customers would. 

When a search engine requests your page, they will only see a blank page. To access this dynamic content, search engines need to download your CSS, JavaScript, and all relevant files to render your page. This can make the crawling and indexing process 9X times longer than standard HTML websites.

Solving this problem can take months of engineering, expertise, and money. Or you can just use Prerender to get your pages crawled and indexed every time. 


VueJS and Prerender

Make VueJS Visible in Search Engines with Prerender

Although Vue is great for creating user-friendly functionalities, search engines like Google have difficulty handling JavaScript, while others don’t support it at all, leaving your web pages stagnant for weeks, months, or even indefinitely.

We solve this issue by fetching all your page’s files, including JavaScript, to generate a static HTML version and serve it to search engines. Our solution requires near-zero development time, and you’ll get all the benefits in days.

Get Your Website Fully Indexed, Every Time

Unlike HTML pages, Google needs to download, compile, execute, and render your Vue code before finally being able to see your content. These extra steps affect indexation and ranking. Prerender speeds up the process by generating a fully rendered HTML version of your pages for search engines. Now, you can get your pages to feature in the SERPs as fast as just days after installing it. 

Ensure All URLs are Discovered

Google crawls your site by following every link it finds on your pages, which is very simple on HTML pages but not on Vue.js sites. All your links are injected through JS, forcing Google to wait until your page is rendered before finding the next one. This results in wasted crawl budget and many undiscovered links.

Prerender ensures Google can discover every page fast by loading all your links alongside your content. This increases crawl speed and efficiency significantly.

Make Your Pages 104X Faster

Prerender caches your fully rendered pages and serves them directly to bots when needed. 

In most cases, boosting your page speed to 90+ scores and getting Core Web Vitals (CWV) to near-perfect results.

Frequently-Asked Questions

All your Vue questions answered.

Just like other JavaScript frameworks, all sites built with VueJS are set, by default, to client-side rendering (CSR). Unfortunately, this means that Googlebot sees a blank page when it crawls, so there isn’t any content to index. Nowadays, Google is better at executing JavaScript, but it’s still an unreliable system that, more often than not, will penalize your website if you’re not using any solution to help your pages get crawled and indexed.

Dynamic rendering is associated with many positive outcomes that can help your site’s usability, SEO, and overall visibility.

  • Makes Vue.JS SEO-friendly: enjoy the UX benefits of JavaScript SPAs while keeping a high SEO performance by making your site’s pages easily crawlable.
  • Faster indexation and search rankings: get more of your site’s pages indexed in a shorter amount of time so they can drive valuable real estate on Google.
  • Increased organic traffic: the sooner your content achieves rankings, the sooner you can start driving organic traffic – and ROI! – to your site.

All these benefits can be achieved using Prerender without the high price tag and complex implementation of server-side rendering or the drawbacks of still experimental workarounds.
