Google remains constant in upgrading how it searches websites, recently launching its Knowledge Graph that intends analyze the way users search, thus delivering more accurate information.

To provide better search results, Google (and even other search engines) need to improve its site-reading capabilities. However, stuffs like JavaScript and AJAX put a damper on Google bots as they crawl through a webpage.

Google, however, has been developed to search smarter. For instance, bots now execute the JavaScript they encounter, mimicking how users click on objects to activate them. This makes the bots able to dig deeper into web pages, accessing databases and contents that were not indexable back then.
