What Is Technical SEO?

Technical SEO (and technical web marketing more broadly) is the process of using your website's code and server configuration to improve the way search engine robots, other automated services, and your human visitors interact with and perceive your website. This includes making the website more accessible, easier to navigate, and easier to understand. By improving your website’s technical structure, you can earn higher rankings in search results, drive more traffic to your website, and increase your conversion rates.

Technical SEO Factors

The three main goals of technical SEO are making your website and your website’s content findable, ensuring robots can access and crawl the content once found, and, after they’ve crawled through your website, that robots can understand the content your website provides. The better you do these things, the better your chances robots will understand your website and be able to rank your website for the correct search results. While there are many aspects to each, here are a few guides about some of the key technical SEO tactics.
