We start this workshop with on-page SEO. This is what people see when they look at your web page. There are many things to improve on the page, so your pages are indexed better, such as site architecture, page design, site search, and video. This also improves the page for your visitors.

You will see how to find meta-tags in your HTML code. We will cover how to edit the meta-tags, the page heading, the body text, ALT tags, and the text in links. We give you a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet that lets you make sure your meta-tags stay within Google’s character limits. You’ll also see a quick way to test meta-tags to get the best ones. We also discuss which pages to choose for SEO work. You’ll also see how to do SEO for images, including how to make changes to the hidden text in images.
