googlebot 15mb

Google recently announced that its Googlebot will crawl and index the first 15mb of a website’s page html to determine rankings and anything after it will not be included in their ranking calculations.

Google specifies in their help document:

“Any resources referenced in the HTML such as images, videos, CSS and JavaScript are fetched separately.

After the first 15 MB of the file, Googlebot stops crawling and only considers the first 15 MB of the file for indexing.

The file size limit is applied on the uncompressed data.”

What does it mean for SEO?

With this latest development, anyone doing seo for their business should include their important content near the top of web pages.

To explain further, code must be structured placing strategically the seo-relevant information within the first 15mb in an html or supported text-based file.

But do we have to worry? I don’t think so as 15mb means 3,346,516 words on your page as what Mark Williams-Cook explained and I’m pretty sure you’re not dumb enough to create such on your page.
