Say you have your website built all in WebGL or SVG. All your text is in there like that too. I'm wondering, then, if you could put duplicate text in HTML but just make it invisible. So you would have the same text in both WebGL and HTML. This would be purely for SEO purposes. Wondering if this is acceptable.

It used to be this is what you'd have to do with Flash websites, so I'm wondering how it is today.

According to the documentation about web rendering engine, is WebGL not supported by the indexer. So you can no worry - your WebGL content will be not indexed.

With the Flash websites there was an opposite problem - developer wanted to index their content, containing in the Flash objects, but Google wasn't able to. There was the cause to create workarounds to make a HTML/XML fallbacks to export textual content from outta Flash objects.

  • why do you want to index WebGL content, and not HTML? – Evgeniy Jan 17 '19 at 8:58
  • I want to draw my text in WebGL, instead of HTML, so I can animate each individual character. – Lance Pollard Jan 18 '19 at 0:12
