Put simply, we believe our product has no negative impact on SEO or search engine rankings, and when used effectively, it can actually increase a site’s ranking in Google and other search engines by improving performance and user experience.
To show you how the New Relic Browser Agent affects search engine rankings, we’ve put together a couple of relevant SEO tips and an explanation of how the Agent functions:
SEO Tip #1: Build a great site
Google consistently recommends that website owners build sites that are valuable to users and accessible to search engine crawlers. In its ranking algorithm, Google considers both on-page and off-page factors. On-page factors include a descriptive title tag, headings, or emphasized text. Off-page factors comprise links from other sites, feedback from Google’s human reviewers, and how frequently users click a search result and then immediately return to Google (also known as bounce rate.) Importantly, Google emphasizes that site speed has a significant impact on search engine rankings and that it continuously tweaks its algorithm to favor sites that provide the most relevant information and the best user experience.
SEO Tip #2: Emphasize front-end performance
Couple that with New Relic Browser’s ability to help you improve your site’s performance and user experience, and it’s clear that Browser is a tool to positively impact search engine rankings.
