Are Links Recognized By Google Inside Shortcodes?

Recommended Posts

I'm using a comparison table plugin for the products which all have heir links inside them. 

The plugin places a [short code] in the article I'm using it for.

When I inspect element of the page I don't see any of the links from that shortcode.

Eveything is working fine I'm just curious does google see those links?

Yes, Google does see them - a "Short Code", simply tells WP to execute a particular script on the server, which is them delivered as HTML. Google doesn't actually see the Short Code at all - just whatever HTML is outputted by the results of the code.

This is true, but you should see the links on the published page in the source code.

Thanks for the heads up.

After I went back and looked at the source code I did find where the links show up. It just showed up at the bottom of the page instead of towards the top where the shortcode is actually applied.

Either way is fine, just glad to see it.
