What is SEO🤔?

How to be better at SEO?

As I previously stated, information is king, and you need dynamic content to keep users on your website and learn everything they need to know.

1. Use Semantic HTML

Using specific tags like <article>,<section>,<header> are way better than using <div> which are semantical i.e it gives a meaningful understanding about the section or part.

2. Alt Attribute

Use the “alt” attribute to images If there is some text that describes what the image is, it will help search engines to understand the image more quickly. It will also help people who are differently-abled (Screen Readers).

<img src="link or location" alt="Some meaning full Text">

3. HTML Head Tag

Now we can go to the <head> of the document. The Head contains all kinds of helpful metadata for SEO.

4. Meta tags for description

Since the title is less descriptive, using the meta tags gives more meaningful information.

 <meta name = “description” > 

5. Meta tags for keywords

<meta name=”keywords” content=”HTML, CSS, JavaScript”>

6. Meta tags for popping up images

Apart from SEO, when you share a link to your website if it has a better image/logo, who will resist clicking it? use the following snippet for achieving this.

<meta name=”image” content=”imageurl”> 

7. Use appropriate heading element

Using heading tags (h1 to h6 ) can help the crawlers to determine the sections or parts of the website.

<H1> Main Section heading
<H2> Heading inside H1
<H3> Heading inside H2

Wrapping it up!

Thanks for reaching this far, you are a fantastic reader!
