Technical SEO Training

Why is it important to learn technical SEO?

There’s a lot more to SEO than “optimizing” a page. You could have the most optimized page on the web, and your customers will never see it if search engines can’t read it. Technical SEO is the practice of making sure Google can read your website. Once search engines can read your website, it can serve it to your customers- as they look for what you offer. Learning technical SEO basics can positively affect your digital marketing efforts, bringing more traffic to your site and improving conversion rates. It will also prepare you for advanced technical SEO training in the future.

Is SEO a technical skill?

While you don’t need to be a web developer to do SEO, there are some technical things you need to do to ensure your SEO success. The best place to start is using a WordPress website. WordPress (out of the box) is ready for an SEO campaign.

However, even if you don’t use WordPress, Curious Ants can give you the technical SEO training you need. We will show you what to look for and what you need to do to fix it. While Curious Ants isn’t trying to teach you how to build your website, we do want to teach you how to communicate clearly and precisely with your web developer. That ensures that technical problems can be fixed quickly (which is also less expensive). In other words, you don’t have to be a programmer to do SEO, but Curious Ants will teach you how to ask the right person for precisely what you need.

What comes under technical SEO?

Google Search Console will be your primary source of information for learning technical SEO. With that information, Curious Ants’ technical SEO course will show you what to do with that information. We may also discuss using Google Analytics. You’ll get a good sample of specific technical SEO parts if you read below.

Does technical SEO work?

Yes. Technical SEO makes sure search engines can read your website. If you understand the principles of technical SEO, Google will have no problem reading your website. That is how technical SEO works. There’s more to SEO than just the technical aspect, but it’s the best place to start.

How do you do technical SEO?

If you’re just getting started in SEO, I recommend you start with Google Search Console. It will tell you if Google has any problems with your website – primarily technical SEO problems. Once you have this information, you can fix the issue yourself or work with an experienced web developer to improve it.

Curious Ants will teach you how to do technical SEO using Google Search Console. It will show you what reports to look at and what you should do about each of these reports.
