Start with Google Search Console

When it comes to search, Google reigns supreme. If you want more traffic, start here. Google provides a free tool to help you monitor, maintain, and troubleshoot your website’s presence in Google Search results.

There are several reasons to plug your site into the console, but most importantly, it tells you how the search engine finds and crawls your site. You’ll be able to see if there are any indexing issues with pages, and you can request a re-index if new content has been added that doesn’t show up on search results.

Search Console also provides information on your visitors’ browsing habits, like search terms they used to find you or how often your site appears in search results. Helpful.

Check your links

You can have a great design and stellar content, but broken links are annoying enough to push visitors away. Link Checker from WC3 scans website links and gives you a summary of their health.

It provides more information on any 200 错误 (“Some of the links to this resource point to broken URI fragments”), 404 错误 (“The link is broken. Double-check that you have not made any typo or mistake”), 和更多.

It is easy to see if all your content and links are pointed in the right direction. Pro tip: Broken links can impact your place in Google search results, which means less traffic.

Make sure your website is mobile-friendly

How frustrating is it to open a website that’s impossible to navigate on your phone? Most browsers can scale web content into a mobile version, but something is bound to look out of place, 破碎的, or just plain weird.

Mobile-Friendly Test from Google does exactly what the name implies: It checks your website for mobile-friendliness. Just put in your site URL and hit Test URL.
