As we mentioned yesterday, SEO can get tricky. However, there are several SEO tech tips you can use to ensure your site is being indexed correctly. Take a look at the factors below!

Crawlability

If your site isn’t “crawlable” then it cannot be saved (indexed) by Google. What does that mean for you? Your site won’t rank. Try doing a quick SEO check using the Quix SEO check page. If it’s not green, then you have some problems to fix.

Canonical Links

If you have duplicate content on your site (pages with the same content), that could be hurting your chance to rank. To eliminate this problem, Google introduced the canonical link. A canonical link should be used if you have 2 pages with at least 95% of the same content. A canonical link will connect the duplicate page to the main page. The canonical linking tool is very powerful and easily misused, so use it wisely!
