Examples that trigger this Optimization
Why is this Optimization marked 'Insight'?
Loud Interactive has tagged this Optimization as 'Insight' to indicate that it may not require immediate action. Instead, it serves as a point of awareness as there might be strategic reasons for making some links non-crawlable, such as actions tied to user engagement or conversions.
Since the purpose behind such links can vary, Loud Interactive acknowledges that the actual intention might be to keep these links non-discoverable by search engines.
