does addthis interfere with seo?
Our address bar and click tracking codes use url snippets instead of query parameters. because search engines consider these commands to be browser-only, they are ignored for indexing purposes. if a particular link gets a lot of traffic from, say, a reddit post and has an anchor, that anchor may show up in search results, but that’s how address bar tracking tags are supposed to work and of clicks to track which instances of the actions are the most popular.
