Googlebot doesn't see embedded product descriptions from Netsuite

Googlebot doesn't see the content on your page if it comes from embedded javascript.

So if you embed your product description from Netsuite into static pages, Google will never index those descriptions. So it doesn't matter if you use SEO keyword terms in the descriptions. And it doesn't help to use keywords in the Netsuite descriptions. And it will hurt your product's search engine rankings unless you include a fair amount of keywords in other places on the page.

This isn't just about Netsuite. Any content that is embedded in a page using javascript is invisible to Google. I just discovered it while testing product pages with the descriptions embedded using the code from Netsuite WSDK.

At least according to the Webmaster Tools "Fetch as Googlebot" in Diagnostics.
