It is well-known that huge amounts of effort put into SEO can bring significant rewards. However, it should also be noted that there are a number of quick tasks that you can carry out to keep your overall SEO effort ticking over.
Writing for Search Engine Watch, Josh McCoy, has highlighted a number of these tasks - which can be done in under 15 minutes.
Here are just a few of those tasks in a summarised form:
- Review your Robots.txt file; assess your Meta Robots tagging - This can be done by checking /robots.txt. In the process of doing this you may find that images, folders and pages on your site are being withheld from search engines - preventing traffic from being driven to your site.
McCoy also recommends running "a site scan with a tool such as Screaming Frog to assess if there are any pages on your site you are excluding via a meta robots tag."
- Review your site for duplicate title elements - Checks for duplicate title elements can be carried in Google Webmaster Tools.
McCoy adds: "Checking this Google property feature can quickly show you these issues and give insight into whether you need to spend the next 15 minutes writing unique title elements, creating redirects, or thinking about which of the multiple pages should include a certain keyword term."
