Does Google Bot parse javascript?

In react pages there is script tag which generate all attributes inside a script _NEXT_DATA_= properties of the document goes here . And inside these properties there are urls, but as json object. Anybody know if google is tracking such type of urls as well or not ?

  • Michael Martinez: I`ve only read a few React case studies and they all mentioned running into limits with Googlebot crawling and parsing the content. Have you tried Fetch and Render in Google Search Console? If not, you should start there. If you did try that and Googlebot didn`t see the URLs, you may have to dig into the React developer community for suggestions on how to coax Googlebot into seeing the content. I`m afraid I don`t know React well enough to advise you.
