Do shortcodes affect page indexing by search engines?
I am using this(Insert PHP Code Snippet) plugin for inserting PHP code in a HTML page.
My Question is by using these shortcodes are there any bad effects when it comes to SEO and page indexing by search engines.
Why I have this doubt is because I am using another plugin to count the words on each page. The page which uses shortcode showing fewer words even it has more words.
So I just wanted an answer for this one.
