Create a Perfectly SEO-Compliant Website
If you’re a web developer, SEO specialist, or entrepreneur looking to build a new website from scratch then SEO Sarnia, Trevor Tynes, SEO Consultant has some tips for you. There are lots of different factors that go into making an SEO compliant site and we’ll cover them all.
First, let’s talk about the technical aspects. Make sure your website is responsive to mobile devices – this means that it can be read on an iPhone, Android phone or tablet.
Make sure you have a sitemap accessible for all pages on your site. This allows search engines to crawl through them properly and will help with SEO rankings.
Your site needs to be crawlable. This means you need a robots file and an XML sitemap (if possible, including images) in your root directory and all folders of the website.
Make sure there is only one domain pointing to each page on your website – don’t create multiple URLs for pages that are similar or identical except for the URL part.
Now let’s talk about content! Make sure your articles have both proper grammar and punctuation as well as correct spelling with no grammatical errors like using “to” when it should be used instead of “too.” Also make sure they’re interesting, unique and informative so people will want to read them. Be consistent with headings type size and placement throughout the articles. Use short paragraphs with concise sentences.
Make sure all links on your site work! You can test this by using the “ping” tool in Google – enter a URL and make sure the ping is successful after clicking it, otherwise it’s time to fix those broken links…
Now for some meta tags: Every page should have a title tag that describes what the website offers. Meta description tags explain briefly about each page including keywords relevant to searches people might be performing when trying to find content like yours. Make them engaging but not misleading or spammy sounding as they’re used as snippets of information from websites by search engines such as Google and Bing which will help you rank higher if done correctly! This also helps readers know exactly what they should expect to find on your website.
Make sure you have a valid HTML sitemap which should be accessible in the root directory of every page and it should include all images, videos or other files that can’t be accessed through links throughout the pages. This is very important as search engines will not index content they cannot see!
Finally, make sure there are no broken links or 404 errors on any page – this looks really bad for SEO rankings because Google sees these as “dead ends” where users may get frustrated when clicking them only to end up at an error message instead of what they were looking for. If necessary use tools like link checkers within web design software such as WordPress plugins to fix them quickly before uploading everything to your server.
