    Question Check indexing of pages linked to from JS


    Hi

    Our website has a resources section, within which sites some categories (blogs, guides, news etc).

    These categories change dynamically through JS, and as the categories dynamically change so do the blogs.

    When I turn off Javascript, I can only click on the categories and no blogs show up because it looks like they are linked to from JS.

    SEM Rush as a result has flagged the blogs up as orphaned pages (I'm guessing the audit tool can't pick up the JS).

    This worried me because now I'm thinking Google can't find this content. I've manually checked the blogs in Google (site: URL search), and they are being indexed because the blogs and guides sit within our XML sitemap..
    I've also checked with Screaming Frog and these blogs aren't appearing in the blocked resources section. So everything looks fine.

    I just wanted to get some opinions on this, as I know Google is much better at crawling JS now, but is there another more efficient way I can be investigating this?


    I'm aware the orphaned page issue is potentially going to impact backlink value etc at the moment.

    Thanks in advance :-)

    Google as no problem indexing sites in .JS (source John Muller sry can't find the webmaster office hours link on that matter) however you should know that not every SE is able to crawl JS, to my knowledge, Bing and Yahoo have issues with it.
