Recent Tech SEO Stuff We Love

What Is Edge SEO & Why You Should Adopt It

via @TaylorDanRW

It is rare that we, as an industry, discover genuinely new ways to actually do SEO. But that's exactly what the guys at SALT.agency have been working on - something called 'Edge SEO' - a system that uses Cloudflare Workers to execute JavaScript and change elements of the DOM, before the URL is served. This helps tackle the ageiest, oldiest problem with technical SEO - actually getting shit implemented. This article introduces you to the topic of Edge SEO and what you can do with it, but SALT have actually gone one better, and built an application for you to do it yourself - which you can check out here.

This article could well have been called 'loads of awesome things you can do with Chrome, that you probably didn't know you could do with Chrome.' Perhaps not as catchy, I suppose. There's things in here that even bona fide SEO veterans won't know about, so I challenge you to read this and not learn something new.
