What is Technical SEO and why is important?

As search engines increasingly favour high-quality websites in their index that offer user-friendly experiences, it is essential for businesses to perform a technical SEO audit on their website.

Technical SEO refers to website and server fixes to help search engine spiders crawl your website more effectively. It provides a deep dive into your website’s technical profile while identifying opportunities for improvement. It also checks if your website complies with search engine guidelines, avoiding potential penalties given out by search engines to websites violating these guidelines.

As search engines are getting more and more sophisticated, their algorithms are constantly changing and becoming more complex. Keeping your website SEO optimised will help its performance keeping it ahead of your competitors. It is safe to say that technical SEO is a process that is never completed and should be performed on an ongoing basis.
