What is technical SEO?

Technical  SEO is the processes of ensuring that technical on-site elements are configured to maximise the potential organic visibility in search engines.

The practice of technical SEO itself is concerned with web technology factors that directly impact on a search engine’s ability to crawl, render and index a website — which ultimately impact on a site’s ability to rank for relevant keywords in search engines.

Crawl -> Render -> Index -> Rank

Why invest in Technical SEO?

Unfortunately, most websites are not tested to ensure that they are search engine friendly (never mind optimised), by the people that build them. Fundamental mistakes are often made, which might seem small, but over time these mistakes compound and incapacitate a website’s performance in search engines.

Investing in effective technical SEO is making the right technical decisions overtime (whether small or large) which optimise a website and maximise its potential for search engine visibility. These decisions add up overtime add up and lead to significant increase in organic traffic and therefore conversions.

Our SEO Consultants can help with any CMS

As SEO consultants, we get to audit and optimise rather a lot of websites; ranging from eCommerce to lead generation, and from news publications to brochure websites. They're all different, but all equally have a lot in common.

No matter what technology you use, we can pretty much guarantee that we are the technical SEO agency to optimise it for search engines, helping you improve organic search performance, leads, and conversions.

They are a wealth of information in what resources search engine crawlers frequently access and help to identify issues within a website – which could hinder search engine crawling and indexing.

Website Architecture Review

The information architecture or taxonomy of a website is crucial to being successful in organic search. A good website structure helps optimise not only for search engines but also the user experience.

At SALT.agency we can help your team optimise your website’s information architecture.

Google Penalty Removal

Penalty removal is not strictly technical SEO, but it does require a technical mindset to help websites identify and remove any manual action given by a search engine. We can also help identify if a website has been hit by an algorithm update and help uncover what is causing it.

International SEO

Any international website needs to be optimised so that search engines can identify which country or language it should be displayed. Optimising any multilingual and multiregional ecommerce website requires careful planning and technical SEO implementation.

It’s important to make sure that your website is secure, and protects your customer’s data. Failing to do so can impact your site’s visibility in Google Search. Even worse, your website could be fined due to new rules by the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

    SALT.agency did an exceptional job in removing a Google Manual Action penalty given to one of the larger e-commerce websites belonging to our group. The penalty was removed on the first submission and they carried out this task with a high level of dedication and skill, impressing us with their passion and knowledge. I strongly recommend SALT.agency to carry out any similar briefs.

    No, both Google and Bing have highlighted that they do not use meta keyword tags as a ranking factor in web search.

  2. Do you think that moving to a purely JavaScript based website is a good idea?

    Although Google is getting better at crawling and indexing JavaScript websites, there are still issues. Do your research before moving to a Single Page Application framework, or get in touch.

  3. Is it important for my ecommerce website to be secure?

    Even though your website is on https://, it might not necessarily be secure. Intruders can still try to hack your website, which can impact on your SEO performance. Our Technical Director discusses how you can check if your website is secure.

  4. Should my ecommerce website be on https://?

    Absolutely, it helps you protect your website and your customers’ information against intruders. Even pages with non-sensitive information should be on https://. It is also a minor ranking factor in Google, and soon most modern web browsers will flag non-secure pages to users.

  5. What SEO tools do you use to audit your website?

    We use some of the leading SEO tools to analyse websites including: Sitebulb, Screaming Frog, URL Profiler, Lightbulb and Chrome Developer Tools. We also use several in-house SEO tools.
