I set up a single page application using Vue.js and Firebase.

It works fine but when I search for the website in Google Chrome, this is what pops up :

enter image description here

I expect to see a proper description, instead of "We're sorry but ... Please enable it to continue."

Here's the code of the file index.html :

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="">
    <meta charset="utf-8">
    <meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=edge">
    <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width,initial-scale=1.0">
    <link rel="icon" href="<%= BASE_URL %>favicon.ico">
      <strong>We're sorry but <%= htmlWebpackPlugin.options.title %> doesn't work properly without JavaScript enabled. Please enable it to continue.</strong>
    <div id="app"></div>
    <!-- built files will be auto injected -->

It seems that Google Search crawlers catch the noscript tag content, rather than the rendered components.

So far, I used Google Search Console to request re-index of my page, but nothing changed.

  • A meta description tag might really help out in this situation. Apr 7 at 1:05
  • Thank you @Maximilian Laumeister. I added a meta description tag. I'm not sure whether it will solve the issue that Googlebot doesn't seem to see the rendered pages of my single page application. I added above a screenshot from Google Search Console showing that Googlebot's screenshot is a blank page ...
