Learn Technical SEO

September 03, 2019

I’m excited to announce that Elementive has released a new course diving into the fundamentals of tech SEO. This Tech SEO course is designed for marketers who aren’t technical but need to know the more technical aspects of search marketing. However, developers and designers who are already more technically inclined will also find value in this course to understand what aspects of design and development apply to SEO.

In this course, we cover duplicate and thin content, appropriate URL structures, ways of controlling robots, resolving errors, XML sitemaps, speed, and schema. Each course explains the main concepts you need to know but keeps it practical by providing guidance on questions you need to ask and tasks you need to complete.

By the end of the course, you will understand the best ways to rework your website’s code, server configuration, and site structure to help search engine robots better understand your website. The better robots understand your website, the better your chances of ranking higher in search results.
