ways to improve SEO with google crawling
there are many ways to improve your site SEO with google crawling and i’ll touch some of them in short details, first of all, keep in mind that in order to Improve SEO of your blog, you’ll have to consider hardworking, blogging is not a peace of cake, you need to become enough smartt and you’ll have to cover your blog from everywhere. if you will forget after submitting your site to search console, you won’t get much benefit then.
check load time
if you want google to crawl your pages quickly then its important that your site takes minimum time to load, sites with slow loading time cannot get better ranking in google, if your website takes 0.5 or 1 second to load, its good signal, but if it takes 2 or more seconds then remember, its time to worry about it. there are many free domain checker available over the internet, just google the “check domain speed” or any similar fraze and check your domain load time.
if your load time is slow, i’ll recommend you to switch your blog over a fast server. blog speed really matters in order to Improve SEO of your contents
optomise your images
most of people use images in their blog but they don’t use image captions, remember, if you would not provide caption with images, search engins including google won’t be able to understand your image. make a habit to write image captions if you really want to Improve SEO.
when you will provide image captions, your images would be considered by google while searching a content
submiting your sitemap file to search engins like google can improve your site crawling, I know creating a manual sitemap file is difficult because you cannot edit your sitemap everytime you publish a new posts, therefore i’ll suggest you to use Yoast SEO, yoast seo is an ultimate solution to manage your blog SEO because it has a lot of features, i must say that in order to Improve SEO of your blog, there is only one plugin which provides fully satisfaction. check complete guide Install and Set-Up Yoast Seo plugin with wordpress where I have explained everything in detail.
