There are many factors that go into whether or not your target audience will find what they are looking for on your site.

You will learn more about SEO later in the course but for the purposes of Website Optimization, there are some basics of SEO that are important to know because we can clearly see how they tie into the optimization of the website. Because design and development may work with the marketing team to implement these changes, knowing basic terms can help us understand how SEO ties into website optimization in this module.

Terms include:

  • Metadata: the meta titles and descriptions, which are shown to users in search results and in the title bar of internet browsers. There are character limits to meta tags – 70 for titles and 160 for descriptions. Search engines use this to determine the content of the page and whether or not to display it in search results.
  • Sitemaps: this is a list of all the pages on your website, including blog posts, media, and forms. This list helps search engines index your content to potentially show it in search results. Most websites built on CMS platforms have sitemap plugins that update this automatically.
  • Website content pages: these are all the informative pages on your site that aren’t blog posts. Examples include About Us, Contact, Services. These pages are usually created once and are only updated when there is new information to be added. However, regularly adding new information or pages that provide more niche information can help with SEO.
  • Blog posts: these are articles that are published in blog post format– usually with the title, author, and date on the page. These are sometimes treated differently by search engines, depending on their content, date, length, and topic. Due to the Google freshness factor, websites with new content can get preference in search results.
