Unclean Website Headers Impact

Google Doesn’t Have Exceptions for Sites with Unclean Headers

Recently on Twitter, Kristine Schachinger questioned whether iframe code added in the head part of the website after the execution of Akamai tracking’s loader snippet is breaking Google Crawler.

Also, Barry Adams backed this question and said, the Akamai iframe code breaks Google’s processing of the site’s hreflang tags.

It is a major issue. So, what webmasters should do?

Here goes the answer.

Google’s John Mueller in his reply to Kristine said Google doesn’t have exceptions for sites having unclean head sections. Webmasters should fix this issue either by moving such codes to the bottom of the page or try using different methods like headers and sitemap.

Therefore, it is better to have a website with clean head section.
