Technical SEO

Under-the-Hood Optimization

The term “technical SEO” refers to behind-the-scenes practices users can’t see, but Google can. For example, Schema markup can help Google better understand your site’s purpose, matching you with customers you need. An XML sitemap helps Google understand how the pieces of your site fit together. It’s not terribly exciting, but it’s essential. Whether you want a new website or already have one, March17 Design can do the boring parts for you.
