Yesterday, John Mueller from Google posted on Twitter a notice to all SEOs that they should embrace JavaScript and help JavaScript developers learn SEO. In short, John said JavaScript is not going anywhere and the basic static HTML web has really transformed. Thus SEOs need to learn JavaScript so they can help JavaScript developers make their content accessible to search engines.

Here is John's tweet:

A few months ago, Google created a workgroup for JavaScript and search.

His point is, it is not the job of an SEO to tell coders not to use JavaScript but rather how they can use JavaScript and still ensure the content is indexed and ranked.

I run at the SMX conference a session on JavaScript and SEO pretty much every SMX show I am at for the past few years. This is an important topic and every time we discuss the panels, we keep deciding to run this panel at each show. It is just that important.

Forum discussion at Twitter.
