  • Before optimizing our webpage, let’s try to understand what bots can read and what not...
  • Guidelines Page Titles: Unique titles ! 7 words is ideal, but don’t focus on it OR : 10-60 characters and no special characters Make sure to have keyword/keyphrase included in the page title Keyword in Title tag - close to beginning Google breaks off your title at 65 characters -When using a long brandname in the pagetitle, know that the weight of your keyword(s) drops (value-spread over all the words)
  • Guidelines URL’s : No more than 3 hypens per folder, per filename (hypens better than underscores) Descriptive url’s (incorporate keywords) Not too many directories ; the shorther the url, the better Don’t repeat keywords in the url Better html (avoid php/asp/cfm) Lowercase urls (otherwise risk for duplicate) No special characters in the url (# à è, spaces, [, ], !, ?, etc.) Maybe a little word about URL-rewriting &amp; Redirects
