Scripting

So if you have some funky JavaScript that controls all your mouse-overs, scrolls text across the page, serves up the current date, time and second, and implements mouse trails, chances are you’re slowing down the crawling of your site with useless text, while burying your keyword-rich content at the bottom of the page where it gets ignored by search engines.

Fortunately, the solution to the problem is a simple one. If you use JavaScript, put all your functions in an external .js file and link to it in the header tag. This will not only help to improve your site’s search engine positioning, but it will also ensure your pages load much faster.
