According to Google Webmaster Trends Analyst John Mueller, “isn’t going away.”
In my opinion, it’s not the case, since everyone who wants consumers and search engines to be able to access their website’s content would be affected by this.
As a starting point, I’ve put up a dictionary of the most important phrases and topics you should know.
What Is the Document Object Model, or DOM, Anyway?
When a page is loaded, the Document Object Model (DOM) is formed and contains nodes and objects that represent the various components and properties of the page.
The page’s structure, content, and style are laid out so that other applications may edit and manipulate the page.
What is ECMAScript?
When the ECMAScript language is upgraded and adjusted, new editions are issued, such as ES5 and ES6 (which is also referred to as ES2015).
To put it another way, what is transpiration?
Programming languages may be transformed using a transpiler, which is a kind of compiler. Like Google Translate for code, the principle is similar.
Chromium: What Is It?
Google employs Chromium, an open-source project whose code forms the core of the Chrome browser, in order to accomplish this goal.
New versions of Chrome are launched as soon as a new version of the browser is available. Since Chrome 41 was launched in 2015, Googlebot has utilized a WRS based on Chrome 41.
It was just a matter of time until Google made their WRS evergreen, meaning it would be updated whenever Chrome was upgraded.
What is a Single-Page Application?
Single-page applications (SPA) dynamically update and re-render a page in response to user input, rather than requesting fresh HTML and content from the server each time the user wants it.
Angular, Polymer, React, and Vue: What Do They Mean?
- Google created Angular and Polymer.
- Facebook created React.
Evan You, a former member of Google’s Angular team, created Vue.

It takes the script and all the instructions it contains, processes it, and runs it in the browser to provide the desired result.
- Quickness of the website
- Indexing and crawling by search engines
Using different rendering methods, you can minimize website load time and ensure that information is crawlable and indexed by search engines.
Prior to rendering, the material on the website is rendered, so that the user or search engine is presented with the page as a static document with all of its information.
A search engine or user’s browser will not have to display the page if it is preloaded in this manner, allowing your content to be easily available.
Pre-rendering is more often employed by search engine bots than humans. Static pages are less appealing to consumers since they don’t have any dynamic material or interaction.
Representational State Transfer
In addition, server-side rendering guarantees that search engines can index all of the page’s content.
Rendering on the Client Side
The user’s device or a search engine’s responsibility is to process and produce a page once the server handles the first request.
Using client-side rendering is generally discouraged because of the latency between Google indexing a website and rendering it.
According to Google, pages that need to be rendered are placed in a queue and will be processed as soon as sufficient resources are available.
Up to one week might pass before your page is included in the search engine’s crawling if you’re depending on Google to display it client-side.
When a website is requested by a search engine bot or a user’s browser, dynamic rendering uses a separate set of rendering algorithms.
A tiny client-side renderer (for example, Puppeteer or Rendertron) is used to pre-rendered a page so that Googlebot may view and index it as soon as it arrives.
Server-side and client-side rendering are combined in hybrid rendering.
When a user’s browser or a search engine crawler requests material, it is pre-rendered server-side and provided to the client.
You should now be able to converse with the developers more confidently now that you better understand the terminology they use!
