The problem isn’t clickbait. (It’s pretty easy to spot when a writer is more interested in getting you to scroll past a few ads than to share some genuine insight.) The problem is old content that no longer represents best practices. And the search ranking of this content is often surprisingly high. If you aren’t specifically looking for a hot new feature that was introduced with one of the last few ECMAScript releases, the sheer weight of old information often overwhelms newer and more relevant content.
To be clear, I’m not talking about relatively minor points (like you should use
let instead of
var to prevent weird edge cases with variable hoisting). These are relevant issues, but not critical. I’m talking about major patterns that have shifted over the past decade. Things like associative arrays or modules. For example, it’s easier to find articles touting the basically obsolete revealing module pattern than to learn about one of the modern approaches, like Node or the official ES6 module standard. And the problem is made worse by the way new developers often write new blog entries to rehash old advice (a practice encouraged by coding camps). I came across old, roll-your-own module system advice from articles like this written as recently as 2019(!)
