Google Guidelines – Blocking CSS Or JavaScript

Google have announced a change that they made to their Webmaster Guidelines, a change that specifically informs users to not block them from crawling your CSS or JavaScript.

A quote from Google’s Guidelines:

“To help Google fully understand your site’s contents, allow all of your site’s assets, such as CSS and JavaScript files, to be crawled.”

This has been added to the guidelines as it has been proven to be harmful to your site if Google is unable to crawl CSS and JavaScript content. It can directly harm how well Google’s Algorithms render and index your content, and can result in below average rankings.
