However, with the help of the tools available at Weblium you can set up and maintain all the needed SEO settings for your website.
Changing page URL
Each page on the site has a unique URL which it can be accessed with. By default, the page name in the editor becomes its URL. You can change the default subdomain in the URL to match your brand. Changing page URL Сlick on the pages menu on the top panel of site editor: Select the page and open its **S
The search engines look for the information to a query in their index of sites, not the actual sites. Thus, getting into the index is super important for your SEO optimization. Google uses software known as web crawlers that look at web-pages and follow links on those pages to bring data about them back to Google’s servers. You can check more details about how Google Search works and organizes information in this guide. Che
Adding page title and description (meta tags)
Site title and description (meta tags) are HTML tags that give search engines more information about what the page is about. These are displayed on the search results pages in Google, Bing, etc.
Adding Schema.org markup
Schema.org is a semantic vocabulary of schemas for structured data markup supported by major search engines. In simple words, this on-page markup helps search engines understand the information on web pages and display it in a useful, relevant way.
Adding alt-text to the images
Alt-text is the image description that allows search engines to understand the nature or contents of an image. It is not displayed on the live site and is not visible to your visitors. Alt-text can be set up only if the image has been added as a standalone element or as a part of the gallery. It is also generally recommended to add alt-text only to the meaningful images on the site — those which actually relate to the services/ business represented. Adding alt-text to the images Firstly,
Adding a canonical link
A canonical link (rel = canonical element) helps to define a "preferred" page version if certain pages were duplicated. In this case search engines will only crawl and index the specified page version. This tag is also useful if you have a single page accessible by multiple URLs, or different pages with similar content. In this case, Google sees these as duplicate versions of the same page. Google will choose one URL as the canonical version and crawl that, and all other URLs will be considered
"Nofollow" for links
If you add links to some external resources, you may want to disallow search engines to follow them. In this case, you can set up "nofollow" tags for links. "Nofollow" is a signal to search engines that you don’t want to vouch for the content of the page you refer to. This is useful if, for example, you are not entirely sure that the links are trustworthy, or you don't want to redirect traffic from your site to other sources. In this case, be sure to put the "nofollow" tag on the link. This way
Adding H1, H2... tags to the text
H1, H2 and other H-tags help search engines to recognize the headings and subheadings on the site and organize its structure. Heading tags have a top-down hierarchy — there are four tags that you can add to your text in our editor : The H1 heading tag acts as the title of each page — therefore, you should add only one H1 tag per page of your site. The H2 tag is commonly used for subheadings, which can be placed as section titles. The H3 tag is supposed to define the third-level headi
Setting 301 Redirects
The 301 Redirect may be used when you want to send traffic from any outdated URLs on your site to the new page. This option automatically sends site visitors to a different URL than the one they originally typed into their browser or selected from a search engine results page. It also redirects the search engines to crawl and index the newest page. You can set the 301 Redirect within a single site only. For example, you used to have a page with the URL domain.com/services. You deleted it and
Adding "www" redirect
According to the SEO purposes, it is preferable to show a website only under http://www.example.com or http://example.com, not both URLs. Learn how you can add "www" redirect to your domain.
