  • 25 Variables to Google and User Compliance: 22. Move Javascript off and onto a JS file
  • Definition Magician: JavaScript is a programming language commonly used in web development. It was originally developed by Netscape as a means to add dynamic and interactive elements to websites.
    (www.techterms.com/definition/javascript)
  • Fun Factoid: JavaScript is used in Web development to do such things as: 1. Automatically change a formatted date. 2. Cause a linked-to page to pop up in a new window. 3. Cause text or an image to change during a mouse rollover.

  • Fun Factoid: A JS file is used mainly to run client side JavaScript code on a webpage. The JS file contains all the HTML HEAD and BODY objects in the tags of an HTML page.

- Okay, so variable 22. Move your java script off of the site and onto a JS file. Jason, am I talking in jargon here or can you help iron this out for us? Clay, describe to me, JS. - Let me make it more clear - I think I, were you speaking Klingon or what? - - Here's the deal A lot of times again, we get overwhelmed, we look at jargon because we don't understand it. And our web, a lot of web developers kind of prey on you based upon your lack of understanding. So because you don't understand... have you ever had a mechanic, an auto mechanic before who you know is screwing you? - [Voiceover] Yes. - Okay, I'm just telling you, I've gone in before for like a brake job and the guy's like, "well I tell you what I mean your rotary girder is completely off the M-line. It's totally off the M-line, I'm going to have to just, we'll put some fluid in there. Now we're going to just see what that does and I'll run some diagnostic tests." And then you come back four hours later and then you see how they haven't touched it yet. And he's like, "I'll tell you what, it's completely disabled. The car is, basically, the manifold at this point is completely up under what I would call the..." And you're going so this guy tried to do that with my Hummer. You know I have the H-2 Hummer. I am not exaggerating. This guy literally created about $4000 of repairs. So I took it to a different place and they're like, "oh, it's all good." But this guy was just playing the game. So a lot of times web people, they kind of play these games. Okay, so we're going to make it simplified for you, okay. So java script, you want to move the java script off onto a JS file. So let's talk about it. First off, what is java script? It's an object-oriented computer programming language commonly used to create interactive effects within web browsers. "What does that mean?" What does that mean Stuart? It's true. - So, a lot of websites use java script. If you've seen video on a website for example, that's going to be loaded or embedded into the website with java script. That's one way to do it. If you see buttons that move or flash when you hover over them. Just all kinds of things like that. - So if you have, if it's an animated, if it's an object. - Right. - Like if it's a video, if it's maybe an image that moves, that is probably java script. - It's probably java script. We use a lot of java script on Thrive. So, when the boost prize, the number ticks up that's an example of java script. Or you're writing in the notes, which you probably, hopefully doing right now and you see the add to notes pops. That's all java script, it drives a lot of that interaction on the website. - But html basic text, that is not java script. - Correct, they're sort of brothers of each other. They've very related. - Kind of Cain and Abel, kind of like one killed the other one? - Maybe, perhaps. Hopefully not. - Notice again, Jason's trying to run for office so he never quite, you can never quite pin him down. Well yeah, I can see both sides. - That's true. - Back to you, my good friend from Iowa. You know, that kind of thing. - That's true. - So here we go. If I want to move my java script off and on to a JS file. What am I talking about? - This one is a little more practical than the CSS one we just talked about. - Show us an example Yoda. - Here's an example. Let me just say this, if you, we have some clients Clay, right now that will go unnamed. But they have a ton of plugins in their WordPress. Okay, you talk about WordPress and plugins, well, they get a little experimental, I won't mention any names. And they'll get in there and they'll ad plugins. Hey, let's see what this does. Well, the more kind of plugins you add to a website, the more java script is running. And, oh my gosh, all of a sudden, a few things start to happen. First of all, your text to html ratio gets out of whack. - You have too much. - Too much code. - Too much code. - For how much text is on the page. - Therefore, Google says... - Eh, it's a bad thing. It's a negative. "- We no like you."

- ♫ Break it down ♫ - They start to conflict with each other, so one JavaScript starts to cause a problem with another, there's a lot of conflicts. Bad deal. So there's a whole sequence of events that start to happen when you start to rack up more and more plugins. Plugins are great. You have to be very careful how many you are running at the same time. That's an example. - Great plugins are, make sure you don't have much on page. Sorry, that was a shameless Yoda impersonation, but the thing is here, Thrivers, this is something that everybody, we wanna kinda show you how to do this. We wanna show you how to do it. To quote Montel Jordan, ♫ This is how we do it ♫ How do we do this? How do we move off the JavaScript and onto a JS file? How do we do it? - This is one of those things that a mere mortal is not really gonna easily be able to do this. - Thrivers, we can do this for you. We have an unbelievable off the menu package. We can do this. Just reach out to us, Mix Master Marshall, we will do it for 90% less than we do it-- we have a PR firm called Make Your Life Epic where we do big old projects. But for Thrivers we have a secret move. So just reach out, we'll knock it out. Back to you. - It's true. There you go. - So if we want to do it, can you show us a little bit of how to do it, or are you just gonna kinda tease us here? - Absolutely. So I'm gonna go to Thrive because we do it the right way. And I'm gonna search for .JS. See all these things that just highlighted yellow? - Yep. - Those are all JS files. We're gonna jump right off the nerd cliff right away, here. - Nerd cliff? - You wanna jump off this cliff? - Who was R2D2's father for 400 points, Alex? - Do you wanna discuss that in the forum? - Yeah, in the community, let's discuss this in the forum, I want people talking about JS files. - That's good, yeah. So, all these things that highlighted yellow, because I just searched for .JS, these are all JavaScripts. Okay, here we go, we're going to jump off the nerd cliff. You ready? Here we go. Oh my gosh. Right, we are square in the Matrix at this point. - Oh. - So all this code is doing different things on the website, it's posting forms, it's allowing you to take notes, the add to notes feature, the ticking boost prize number, all those kind of things, this is the nerd code that is making that happen. Specifically, what you are talking about is the fact that that code is not in the HTML source code, it's not blended together in the same file. - Oh. - It's separated out, externalized into its own file. - So if you click it, it would take you to the file. - Exactly, we've done it the right way. - So, Thrivers, again, how can they test it if they want to know? To quote Whitney Huston, "I wanna know." - "How will I know?" - "How will I know." We'll use "How will I know," How will I know? - I would email info@thrive15.com. - And we'll help you. Right? - We'll help you. - Okay. That's the deal. So, Marshall, you talk to the Thrivers everyday, you and your team of beautiful humans, you talk to Thrivers, any question you feel like they are going to have right now? - No, I think this gives you a brig, broad concept to educate yourself when having that conversation with your web developers, and if you need further help wth that, we're ready and willing to help you guys. - Now, I think what he meant to say was "big, broad," but instead he said "brig, broad," and "brig, broad," was actually a Thriver from Alaska who is very successful with his lumberjacking business. Brig Broad, this episode goes out to you, Brig Broad. Chop that wood baby.
