We all know that SEO matters a lot in online businesses if we own a website and content is like the lifeblood of SEO but SEO is as important as the content but technical SEO refers to any SEO activities which do not include the content. It is the foundation of your website which gives our content the best chance to rank in the search engines through relevant keywords and phrases.
Technical SEO is the main reason for the search engines to crawl to our website and index the site. It can analyze the search engines techniques for accessing and crawling to our site.
Why Technical SEO is important? We are having a car with super sporty body with good fuel capacity but we cannot imagine the car without the good mechanics to run with as it will not be powerful. The same condition is with SEO. Only having the great content on the site is not sufficient enough if our website is not technically sound. Technical SEO should be combined with other SEO factors in order to make the SEO strategies successful.
Here, go through the few of the technical aspects of SEO:
Conducting technical SEO audit: Technical SEO audit is simply the process of finding out any issue which is acting as barrier for search engine to crawl to our site. It also gives us the opportunity to know the possibilities for improving the site performance. In order to create a template of all the technical issues and then resolve it one by one.
Mobile optimization: It is must as today mobile users have increased to the great extent than desktop users. If our site is not mobile optimized, it is definitely a bad sign. The mobile traffic is more than the desktop traffic which means that mobile users are the ones who are visiting the site and making purchases.
Check the Robots.txt file: This file is something which would tell search engines those parts or pages of the site to be crawled and which not to be crawled. The crawled pages are those which are visible to the users and not crawling pages are those which are visible to site administrators. The reason behind checking is that whether the entire website may have been blocked by the site owners.
Duplicate content: Google do not like the duplicate content but it can be found on both on site and off site. So we need to be careful in finding out both as if our website is having more number of duplicate content, then our site will be penalized by the search engines.
