What are the Most Common Technical Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) Issues?
Here are the top 10 issues we see most often in websites we are either refreshing or rewriting.
Does your website have a sitemap, correct metadata, and strong internal links?
What pages should search engines index and offer in their search results?
Is your website adapted to load quickly and clearly for mobile and tablet users?
Does your website load quickly and does it satisfy the SEO requirements for loading time?
5. Back-end Code
Is the code used on the website SEO friendly?
Is the content duplicated elsewhere on your website or anywhere else on the internet? Duplicated content is harshly penalised as it often means the content has been copied from other websites.
7. Link Building.
Are the links directing traffic to your website credible? Do they have good domain authority?
Can website visitors navigate around your website easily? Can they easily access all the information they may need from you? Is it easy to find your contact details?
9. Image Optimisation.
Are images optimised and are there accessibility alternatives i.e., for sight-impaired people?
All redirects should be 301 redirects. 404 errors do not link to new URLs and do not contribute positively to your new web pages and websites.
How Does Technical SEO Benefit Websites (and Businesses)?
All three areas of search engine optimisation are important. If you were building a house, technical SEO is the structure and the foundation. When done well, it will be a powerful base you can rely on for years to come. SEO improves the user experience which ultimately translates into more enquiries and conversions.
Why WordPress? It is the Best Platform for Excellent Technical SEO
WordPress is the most popular website building platform (content management system) in the world for good reason. It upholds SEO best practices which contributes to websites ranking well on search results pages(*2).
Almost half (43%) of the websites on the world wide web are WordPress sites. In second place is Shopify at 4.5% and then Wix at 1.9%(*3).
For a website to be found on the internet, it must have excellent SEO and content. WordPress provides the absolute best digital architecture for our teams to create the best quality websites for our clients.
Once we have everything set up, we can (and do) easily teach our clients how to maintain their websites well into the future.
Popular websites such as Grammarly, Dell, Bloomberg, GoDaddy, TED, CNN, Spotify, and Ali Baba (to name a few) all have WordPress websites(*3,4).
