I used Screaming Frog tool and found that this javascript is showing 404 error. Should I be worried?

Need clarification on this.

Thanks.

No it doesn’t Google bot only care about the final rendered HTML. They crawl the content sothey won’t bother about any script.

No, but it doesn’t stop scrapers either. It’s pretty pointless. What if someone wants to quote you or link to you with a quote?


#4

No but sometimes it affects user-experience.

You can use CSS instead of java script

It can affect badly for a site which offers something like

  • Name suggestion (example: Funny Wifi name)
  • Special Symbol / online text convertor
  • Coding
  • A web form

Other kind of site where copy-paste blocking can destroy user-experience.

  • Quotes
  • Shayari
  • Lyrics

etc.
