re: Server Side Rendering pros and cons. When to use it and when to choose something else VIEW POST

re: It has similar ideas and I generally agree, except one bit Google and other search engines use a ‘real’ browser to index your pages. Not quite ...

The last time I checked, Google is using Chrome 54. I have a few websites without SSR, there haven't been any problems with indexing.

But yes, if your site has thousands of pages, SSR can improve indexing speed

Googlebot uses a web rendering service (WRS) that is based on Chrome 41 (M41). Generally, WRS supports the same web platform features and capabilities that the Chrome version it uses — for a full list refer to chromestatus.com, or use the compare function on caniuse.com.

Oops! sorry, somewhere I read it's 54. My mistake!

I'll correct it
