      Hi Prasanna

      A lot of things descibed in this post can also fall under the umbrella of on-page SEO. It’s a matter of how you categorize the different tasks. What is important though is to make sure that your website is configured correctly for each and every point described above.

    The funny part about all this stuff you’re recommending we do is that a lot of it improves the user experience as well. It’s almost like… Google has fooled us into making our sites better for users in our attempts to rank them highly in search engines… Damn you Google! 🙂

      Hi James

      That’s true. SEO is all about improving the user experience and this is what Google wants.

    Agreed with another comment that we’re getting more and more into the realm of UX when looking at technical SEO.

    Interesting to see how closer these come together each year.

    Great article!

    Hi Alex,

    Worth reading it, as always.

    I didn’t get one thing, while adding canonical tags, does adding noindex tags to duplicate pages are important or just canonical tags to original pages would be enough?

  9. Komal says

    Hi Alex,
    Genuinely helpful content, this is the third time I visiting this blog, especially the one related technical SEO and thought that it’s best to bookmark it now. So I also thought I should let you know. Thanks for writing this. However, I do not understand a few terms completely yet, but I hope to get a grip on it soon. Cheers!

    Great article but I think I have found an error:

    You state: “I prefer to have www in front of my domains because it seems more natural to me but there is nothing wrong if you decide to go with the http version.”

    I think you mean to say that there is nothing wrong with going with the non-www version.
