In 2018, does SSR still provide an advantage over CSR for: (1) SEO, (2) performance?


Please use an hybrid/enhancement approach:

SSR for first page load (benefits: SEO, accessibility, speed)

Then if browser supports JS, use a router, catch link clicks, and do CSR for faster and more app-like transitions (details like GA events can be done programmatically).

Plus, for SEO, never underestimate the importance of a clean and full sitemap no matter the approach you choose.
