Welcome to 2015, or as I call it, the year of mobile. After years of carefully watching statistics chronicling increased mobile adoption by consumers, devouring several reports published this past year and poring over local and national data Evolve Creative Group collected, it’s more than evident we need to adapt and change the way we think about our ongoing marketing initiatives.
There’s been an ongoing debate in our office, and I’m often challenged with it: Do websites still need a homepage button or link? I’ve been searching for the golden blog post or whitepaper to answer this question, and have yet to find it. So I’ll answer it myself.
Last, but not least, in our Technical SEO Checklist series, we’ll explore how to use the robots.txt file and what to do when you receive a response code error.
In part one of our three part series, we discussed what steps to take to fix duplicate content issues, and how to properly use the rel=canonical tag. In part two, we’ll go over what character counts to abide by for your SEO meta information, and what to do about headings like H1 and H2.
By now, folks are realizing how utterly complex SEO really is. There isn’t one calculation of efforts that will create the holy grail of search engine rankings, and there certainly isn’t one element that will shoot your website to #1 on Google. If you’ve been told so, you need to start talking to someone else about your website optimization.
