Why is Technical SEO important?
Well, because technical SEO is what allows search engines to know that you have a website of high value. This is vital because its prompts the search engines to rank you higher.
What are the Technical SEO elements?
The faster your website loads, the better because it plays a direct role in user experience. Most of the users bounced off the sites when loading speed is slow.
Make your templates simple
Make your templates minimalists by limiting the components of your website.
Additional elements of your layouts like plugins, widgets, tracking codes need extra time to load. So, optimizing is much needed because the more elements on a page that need to load, the longer your users must wait.
Similarly, images are important. Create sharp images and make sure to adjust their sizes. However, limit to the minimum sizes because large pictures can affect your loading time.
The browser cache stores website resources automatically (on a local computer) the first time you visit a webpage. Thus significantly improves the page load speed for returning visitors.
Try to leverage the browser cache and set it according to your needs.
Millions of people all over the world uses mobile rather than using computers (desktops/laptops). So, mobile friendliness of your website is equally important as website speed.
You can test how your website’s load in mobile devices. Use Google’s mobile-friendly test tool.
