No no. It is not a Technical topic. I’ll tell you one thing, I’m not a Technical Guy. I don’t have any coding background, and I even don’t understand it in the first place.
This topic “Technical SEO” is similar to On-page SEO. There are slight differences. let me go through in detail in the following article.
What is Technical SEO
In Simple Words, it is a way to ensure your blog meets the technical requirements of the latest search engine Goals, which helps in ranking your blog high on organic search results.
Making a blog and website faster, easier to crawl, and understandable for search engines are the pillars of technical SEO.
Technical SEO is part of “On-page SEO“, which focuses on improving elements on your website to get a higher ranking in organic results.
But it is the opposite of off-page SEO, which is about generating exposure for a website through other channels.
These are some of the important elements that need to taken care of. They are crawling, indexing, rendering, Sitemap, Security, and many more.
Let me explain all this in detail.
- Mobile Friendly
- Duplicate Content
- Search Console
- Other stuff
Let’s try to understand what are these and how they will help in ranking
The sitemap is the single most important part of Technical SEO. It is also neglected by many bloggers. This step helps google to understand what is the flow that you are following.
This also helps Readers for quick and easy navigation.
Sitemap or XML sitemap is a list of all pages of your site. It serves as a roadmap for search engines on your site.
With it, you’ll make sure search engines won’t miss any important content on your site.
The XML sitemap is often categorized in posts, pages, tags, or other custom post types and includes the number of images and the last modified date for every page.
This map may vary from you and Me. Your site may be different from mine. However, this helps both users and the Search engine.
If you want to see your blog visually on the online click here This will show what is linked to what and what are facing errors.

Often few pages or blog posts need to be removed or changed to another place. But Search engines don’t know about that.
Google takes some time to understand. Meanwhile, your blog or site needs to show “404” or “401” Error.
Here is the example of the “404” Error page. This might happen in 2 cases. One id you might have deleted the Article. the other is you might have transferred or changed the article to another place.
Redirect is also look similar, but it will redirect the user to the new page.
7. Mobile Friendly
According to Google, more than 60% of searches came from Mobile. and most of the blogs are not optimized for Mobile-friendly views.
Nowadays google checks for mobile-friendly ness. If the site looks good on the laptop and on I pad, but not on Mobile then the blog won’t rank high.
Your blog might lose valuable points from an organic ranking perspective.
Always check for mobile-friendly themes. If you think it is okay, then you are making a mistake. Do quality Check your self.
If you are using the chrome click the left button and at the bottom, there will be an inspect button. Click on that.
You’ll get this view where you can test your website.
8. Duplicate Content
I often have to create Duplicate content. There is no way you can create unique content all the time. For example take this article, some of the points like “Speed”, ” Security”. This is common in On-page SEO, the article also.
However, there is no Panility form google side, for duplicate content particularly on your site. But if you copy from other sites then, it is worthless.
Your blog may contain duplicate content, it is not a bigger problem. However, google need to know what to show for a particular request.
If there are 2 articles on the same name then, google will get confused and it’ll show the most viewed articles on the top.
You may create the same content, simply changing the file name or headings. But Google can understand what is it about. If it gets confused then it will get hard to rank your article.
If you want to create any Duplicate content then add it in the middle of the article. Don’t create an exact article.
9. Search Console
Google Search Console is the best way to optimize your site. This helps you in many ways. You can arrange your domains and subdomains.
Just like this bing has its own search console.
You can better understand your blog with these free tools. There are paid tools also available. But this is the best.
10. Other stuff
Always have one domain name. Ex: mine id “www.bloggingformulae.com”. I use it all the places. I don’t have any other domains, like .in or .org. This will lead o confusion.
I had a first-hand experience. To avoid all this confusion, and keep one domain for all.
You also need to structure your blog in such a way that the user should not do the treasure hunt. all the topics need to be at fingertips. Use dropdown menus and other options to navigate.
Just like user google and Bing need to understand the blog structure as well as content structure.
See there is no coding involved in this topic. This is just a Name. This process including “On-Page SEO” is very important to rank high on organic search results.
All these points are similar across all platforms. and if you want to optimize your blog, then you need to take care of all the pointe that we just discussed.
