Why you need to do technical SEO.
What Is Technical SEO?
Technical Seo means the technical side of your blog or website SEO. You need to apply these things if you re already running one blog or planning to start. Technical SEO helps you to boost your ranking.
Why you need to do Technical SEO
As you know now of-page SEO does not boost your ranking. You need to strengthen your On-Page. The first step of on-page optimization is technical SEO. if you don’t fix the technical side of your blog/website visitor will leave your website and don’t watch/read your blog post.
I will share with you how I did technical SEO in my all blogs. It is not difficult it is super easy to fix your blog technical side. To do Technical SEO you need only 30 minutes.
USE SSL (https://)
You need to use SSL for your blog, as SSL indicates google that your site is trusted and secured it will help rank form anyhow. You can get SSL for free from Cloudflare.
After adding SSL you need to redirect all website link HTTP:// to https://. You can redirect it form WordPress setting or form domain panel.
If your Domain from GoDaddy follows my steps. Login to your GoDaddy account. Go to Manage Domains, click domain DNS settings.
Scroll down and come to the end of the DNS settings page, and you will see the forwarding option. Click on the domain additionally, now forward to https:// also type your domain name. Tick the “Update my nameservers and DNS settings to support this change” and click save.
Now it will take 1 to 2 hours to redirect properly. And you have done to add SSL.
Which Type of Hosting You Need to Use
Page speed is very important to rank your post. Let me explain how it is important. If you visit any website and website taking 1 minute to load you will leave that blog and go back and watch the next post.
That’s how to google drank or not rank you. Now you need to fix your page speed.
Blog/website page speed mainly depends on hosting, you need to use good hosting. I personally use a2 hosting. Their servers are super fast. If you have heavy traffic go with VPS hosting.
Now how you will check your website speed is good or not.
Go to Google Page Speed Insights and type your website URL and click analysis. Google Page Speed Insights not only show your website optimized neither un-optimized but also show you fix.
As you can see my blog is showing 100 rating means no error found.
Now click on the Phone tab, as you know this time most of the people visit the blog from phone so you need to optimize your blog for a smartphone too.
Here you can see my website is mobile optimized too. Is your website optimized like this? Comment down.
You just need to use the good theme and you need to shift to good hosting. What is a good theme? Good theme means which theme is responsive and properly optimized.
Like, use Generatepress, Genesis, NewsMag, newspaper etc type themes. These themes are mobile optimized and CSS optimized.
Website Cache Optimization
If you have done this steps next step is you need to add one cache plugin. Yes, cache plugin is important, cache plugin will make your website cache and save to your visitor browser. When a visitor will visit your website, will load fast.
You can use W3 Total Cache, WP Super Cache etc plugins. I recommended W3 Total Cache, I personally use this plugin for my all blog. W3 Total Cache is a free plugin. With this plugin’s you can make cache and compress your website which will decrease your website load time.
How WP Rocket Help Me to Increase My Website Speed (UPDATE)
Recently I changed my cache plugin form W3 Total Cache to WP Rocket. And I was amazed WP Rocket is too much easy then other cache plugins. It is very lite and very easy to set up. This plugin recommended by one of my friend.
It is really amazing it has inbuilt all option to optimize. You will no need to install other plugins to compress HTML, CSS, and JS. This plugin can be done all these things very easily. It can also optimize your Database. And many more features.
Image Optimization In Simple Way
I already said that website load time hold your ranking. For Boost website load time you also need to optimize your website images. Optimize website images means first you need to compress your main image. If your image size is bigger then 1MB use image compressor website to compress those images. But I recommend you to compress any image before upload it on your website.
To compress images I use loveimg.com. From here you can compress your images single or as bulk for FREE.
Also, many WordPress plugins come to compress images but those are paid and some free. For example WP SMUSH.
Still, I use the manual method to do this. Now depends on you which technique you want to use
The second thing you need to add your image description properly. If you don’t add your image description image cant rank on google as you know Google also ranks images. To rank image, you need to use image description and you need to include your keyword related to the image as an ALT tag.
Free Website Security And CDN
On every website, security is very important. For security use Cloudflare.
Cloudflare comes free and paid form for me free form is sufficient on the off chance that you need additional highlights you can purchase. Cloudflare causes you to spare your transmission capacity and square DDOS assault and BOT assaults.
It additionally gives free CDN (Content Delivery Network), it will enable your site to stack time. mean if your server is from the USA and your guest frame INDIA Cloudflare will indicate Indian guest shape Cloudflare INDIAN server.
That’s how CDN works and I recommended you to use CDN. many paid CDN comes like MAX CDN etc, If your blog is too big and huge visitor load use CDN.
Boost Mobile Traffic Using AMP
I know you used the mobile-friendly theme but if you add AMP it will load your website on smartphone very fast. And google like AMP blogs so transform your site to AMP. If you are using WordPress it is very easy.
Simply download AMP for WP plugin and install it will transform your site to AMP. And you will rank faster.
You saw many times you search any keyword and the first result shows like the list.
This is called the schema. Schema helps to rank your website faster. You can read how you can install schema here.
Broken Link Checker
You need to find your blog/website broken links. Simply visit this website then enter your domain name and click on find broken links. It will show you all the broken links.
Now redirect broken link to a new post. With this, you will fix your ranking problem.
Google Search Console
Use google search console to fix any type of search error found. And if your post is not indexing or you updated your post-re-fetch your post from Google Search Console. This tool is very important.
Submit your website sitemap to google and bing webmaster tool. It is a very important step to index your posts. If you are using Yoast SEO plugin it is very easy to make Sitemap.XML.
No one says about the blog look, however, blog look/layout is a very important ranking factor. You need to make your blog layout simple, not many Pop-ups and not much slider etc. You need to fix this thing on your website.
