Is there any workaround?
How to use <noscript> tag
I believe readers of this blog are already familiar with some web development basics, so I’ll give you one simple example.
If you do something like that, both users and Google will see your content.
Why you should or shouldn’t use <noscript> tags
Another problem is that adding additional tags to a page, results in an increase of a page size. Increase of page size will negatively affect its speed and if we consider that website speed is a ranking factor, we realize that we have to be careful. Luckily, size increase shouldn’t be big enough to noticeably affect speed.
Please don’t spam!
Spammers often use <noscript> tag because huge majority of users won’t see its content, but Google will. However, Google will fight against spam. If they catch you, you’ll get penalized. Please use this trick just to make content that is visible to users also visible to Google, not to fool Google to rank you higher or any other spammy action.
