Page SEO Settings
The following are areas to work on to help the way search engines see your website.
- SEO Title – The title of your website is very important as it describes what is in the page content and typically included in a search result. This title should be concise with the keywords of who you are. (Google shows only 65 charactors in title)
- SEO Description – This is the description of the page and is typically included as the paragraph under a search result that describes the content of the page. This isn’t necessarily used to index the content but is important for how results are previewed and encourages someone to click on the link.
- Keywords – Most search engines, including Google, completely ignore keywords for search ranking because they are too easy to game. Lots of people choose to leave these completely blank, however, some people like to include keywords for certain systems that are indexing these for use internally for their own search purposes. In short, don’t waste too much time on these if you are just looking to increase your search rankings.
Website Content SEO Settings
- Text Content – Search engines use the HTML Text Tags to index the structure and content of your web pages. This helps them better understand the information found on your site. <h1> headings should be used for main headings, followed by <h2> headings, then the less important <h3>, and so on. Showit automatically applies Text Tags based on the Font design settings you are using. You can read more about HTML Text Tags here.
- Images and Media – Under the preview of an image, there are options to add an SEO Title and Description used as the title and alt tags for SEO purposes for an image in the page. These can be used to determine how Search engines index the file without relying on potential generic image names.
