Is Your Website Search Engine Friendly?
Search Engine Optimization (SEO) essentially involves making it easy for search engines to find your website and improving your position in search engine rankings. With the right strategy and implementation, search engine optimization can dramatically improve website traffic.
SEO is an overwhelming subject. Understanding and implementing SEO on your website require some basic to advanced technical knowledge. Keep in mind that some SEO practices quickly get outdated since Google constantly changes its search algorithms. When Google is about to roll out a significant algorithm change, those updates are reported on by the SEO community and publicly discussed and confirmed by Google so that you can prepare your website to comply with the upcoming changes. If you do not, your site may drop it's current rankings. For example, Google just started rolling out "mobile-first indexing". It's going to change the way your site is ranked in the search engine results pages. It means that a site's mobile-friendliness is now a part of SEO, and you cannot ignore it if you want to improve or sustain your current search rankings.
Now, some basic on-page SEO such as page title, header tags, HTML site map etc. can be easily done by a non-technical person. However, to convert an entire website (that was meant for desktop users) to a responsive site requires help from a professional. But it isn't enough even after a site is converted to a responsive site. You need to make sure :
- your website loads within few seconds.
- your website graphics are optimized.
- your website css, scrips and HTML have been compressed and cached.
- you minimize server HTTP requests.
- your website is encrypted so that search engines and web browsers can inform site users that your site is secured.
- your website uses search engine friendly URLs.
- you redirect site URL to a www or non-www path (use one or the other) whichever is appropriate.
- you implement analytics to monitor site activity.
