What More Do You Need To Know?
There are no shortcuts for SEO. There are the basics, the intermediary and the advanced. Regardless or which level you are right now, one important aspect of SEO is to analyze your website and see what needs to be rectified. Now this is easier said than done. I spent the last three days “correcting” many errors and mistakes on several of my blogs, specially in the beginning of my journey, and believe me, I was surprised to see that there was a lot to be done. Small errors or mistakes can significantly impact the search relevance of your site’s content and cause you to fall back on search engine rankings.
Some of these common errors include: broken links from a page, missing alt tags on images, multiple URLs on a site pointing to the same content, descriptions, and keywords, different casing, unnecessary redirects, invalid markup, etc. Almost all of these errors or mistakes are often easy to rectify – the problem however is how to discover and find them within a site and more importantly what action should you be taking? Imagine looking at each post and verifying for broken links, properly identified images, etc. If you have started your blog and still has very few links on it, you can probably do this manually, but what if your blog is already established and has hundreds if not thousands of posts, that could take days, weeks and maybe still leave something behind. Is there a tool where we can narrow all this auditing and go straight to rectifying problem areas in our websites or blogs?
