Goossips: External Resources, Tabs and Accordions – SEO News and Engines – Ultimate SEO

Some info on Google (and Bing sometimes) and its search engine, gleaned here and there in an unofficial way these last days, with this week’s program some answers to these frightening questions: If a site uses JSS files and / or External CSS (available on another website), can this be problematic in terms of SEO?
