SEO for Angular Apps
Jun 08,2017 | Posted by : Michelle Esposito
There are pros and cons to everything. In the case of single page applications such as Angular 4, you have the potential to provide a better user experience. However, staying on top of search engines and boosting SEO for Angular apps has been a challenge in the past with Angular 1. That’s no longer the case thanks to advancements with newer versions of Angular combined with changes to the way Google crawls the site.
In Angular 2 and 4 the application uses server side rendering which is a reliable way to allow search engines to access your content.
Now that the biggest SEO challenge is a thing of the past, there's quite a few advantages of building a single page application, including the ability to:
- Make a distinction between "pages" and views"
- Load a single HTML document from the server
- Use HTML5 features:
- History interface for navigation
- Local storage to save and reuse data
The best part is single page applications are easier to implement using Angular. If it's time to refresh your Angular skills or learn the recently released Angular 4, The Training Advisors has a class for you.
