SEO Best Practices - Google Webmaster Conference 2019

Quality Content

  • Don’t paraphrase other’s content. Use original own content.
  • Avoid spelling mistakes and grammatical errors
  • Publish a single solid article and consolidate all thin articles in one.

Search friendly

  • Create a good meta title & description.
  • Give your image a descriptive name, and alt.
  • Use high-quality images.
  • Always keep featured/Primary images in the top (if possible just below the title)
  • Don’t insert important text in images.
  • Fix all errors you find in search console.

Mobile Friendly

  • Everyone is on mobile so we need a mobile-friendly website.
  • If we miss anything on the mobile version we’ll lose it on desktop too for indexing.
  • In the desktop version, you added text and image and in mobile you only use text. Then Google will index image for both mobile and desktop. This will happen in desktop index first. Vise Versa for mobile index first.

Fast

  • Use inline CSS in the visible content above the fold area.
  • Eliminate render-blocking JavaScript and CSS
  • Minify resources
  • Enable compression
  • Improve server response time

Secure

  • All website should be on https secure server because no one wants to compromise their security. (Highly recommended)

Structured

  • Give explicit information to Google with the help of structure data or schema for below type of content or websites.
  • Implement it in any 3 ways listed below:
    • Code:
      • Google prefer JSON-Ld
