Google Clarifies 15MB Googlebot Restrict

The opposite day, I lined how Google added a line to its Google documentation that Googlebot can crawl the primary 15MB of content material in an HTML file or supported text-based file, after that, it stops crawling. Then I used to be a bit shocked to see numerous SEOs start to panic.

For some motive, SEOs felt 15MB of uncooked HTML per web page shouldn’t be sufficient. 15MB is an enormous quantity of HTML on a URL by URL foundation. It doesn’t embody downloading movies, photos, and many others, it’s simply the HTML supply code. Once more, it’s a large restrict and none of this was new, it was merely simply added to the documentation however has been in place at Google for a very long time.

Nonetheless, in case you are the proprietor of an HTML web page that is over 15 MB, maybe you could possibly at the very least transfer some inline scripts and CSS mud to exterior recordsdata, fairly please.” He digs in additional for individuals who are involved, so go learn it.

Then John Mueller of Google does his Twitter thread model:
