Technical SEO is arguably one of the most important areas to master when creating or managing a website. It can provide a solid foundation for other types of SEO activity, and even then, it requires regular attention to ensure everything is working as it should be, and in-line with best practices.
You’ll learn about a huge range of techniques for making your website work as hard as it can do for you, including how to boost page speed, the insights you can gain and implement from analysing server log files, and how to make sure you’re covered in a mobile-first world.
This course is going to be split into four distinct sections, with each focusing on a specific theme. We’ll start with more basic topics, such as how technical SEO fits into the overall picture as well as looking at crawlability, crawl budget and how search works. It’ll be a good basic introduction to the more advanced topics that are introduced in the following sections. The second section is focused on Indexing, Content and Speed, and the third will investigate more advanced technical topics, such as the potential of python, carrying out a server log file analysis and details of useful HTTP headers. We’ll then finish the course with the fourth and final section, that’ll look into international SEO, schema, HTTPS and Google tools.
This hands-on course is run by the winner of Young Search Professional of the Year 2019 at the UK Search Awards, Tom Pool. He’ll take a deep-dive into the more advanced areas of on-page technical SEO.
