Re: Do you have helpful SEO suggestions?

Hi everyone.

 

We often write about Magento SEO as we have a lot of clients for whome we do such services and we've seen all sorts of stuff.

 

Let me contribute another small tip:

 

Make sure you verify both HTTP and HTTPS versions of your website in Google Search Console (ex. google Webmaster Tools). 

 

Unliek Google Analytics where oyu gat both http and https data in single view, for Google Search COnsole thos eare two separate websites and you might be looking at just one of them and not seeing all of the warnings, errors and messgaes that might be found on another one.
