Google Analytics 4

If you’ve got a website, you’ll likely have heard about the big switch over to GA4. The new analytics boasts plenty of fancy features that provide new insights into your performance and the behaviours of your customers. 

We can help migrate your business over to GA4 and provide training, so your team can pull reports and understand what the data is telling you. 

This empowers you to make informed business decisions, based on GA4 insights that’ll make a real difference to your success.

Page speed

In today’s world, we expect websites to be fast. Waiting more than a few seconds for a page to load is enough for visitors to quickly back out affecting traffic and conversions. So, a speedy website is critical to the success of your business. 

Technical SEO plays a huge part in page speed, meaning we can transform a sluggish website into a speedy one with a variety of tweaks. From resource prioritisation to decreasing large media files and fixing caching, there are many different solutions to a slow website. 

Not sure if your website’s slow? At Distinctly, we can carry out page speed audits to report back on the pace of your site, with cold hard data.

Conversion rate optimisation

Slow site speed, clunky checkout processes, poor site structure – there are countless reasons why leads don’t convert and sales fall through. 

A technical SEO audit can capture any of these oversights. Our team will report their findings and suggested improvements in plain English, so you’re not left second-guessing.

We take a forensic approach to conversion rate optimisation (CRO), digging deep into how users interact with your site and where they come up against problems.

This deep analysis leads to tangible actions that have big impacts.

Frequently asked questions about technical SEO

What does a technical SEO agency do?

Website’s can be difficult to manage given their size and the number of moving parts especially in industries like eCommerce and recruitment.

Making technical SEO improvements helps ensure your website is search engine-friendly, allowing them to access and index important pages whilst ignoring low value pages.

As well as this, a technical SEO agency will guide you through significant website changes such as a CMS change, rebrand or redesign.

When do I need a technical SEO agency?

You should always work with a technical SEO agency as early as possible when planning fundamental changes such as a CMS migration, a rebrand or redesign. This will allow more time for consultancy and gives you the flexibility to make changes before they are live.

Alternatively, if you have already gone through this change and it’s impacted traffic and conversions, there may be some underlying crawlability and indexability issues.

Migrations can be a tumultuous time and, if handled incorrectly, can negatively impact your website’s performance. If you think something is awry, it’s always best to consult a technical SEO agency to get to the root cause.

If you have an eCommerce or recruitment website, expert-led technical SEO will help you gain extra traffic and conversions through Product schema and JobPosting schema. See our Engage Education case study to discover how.

Why is my website not being indexed?

Underlying technical issues can result in websites not being indexed.

One reason may be that a noindex code has been added to your website’s HTML, alerting Google to stop this page entering its index. Another technical issue may be that Google’s access is being blocked via the robots.txt file.

This is a common issue, but one that should be addressed immediately.

What is schema markup?

Structured data markup, or schema markup, can be used to tell search engines what your data means, producing more informative results for the user and (often) increases in website visibility and traffic.

We can see examples of this with enhanced product descriptions in the search results, including information on delivery, in-stock availability and more.

 

Do 404 errors affect SEO performance?

A large number of 404 errors will start to affect a search engine’s crawl demand, but most of the time they’re due to websites continuously changing.

To prevent Google from revisiting these errors, set up an informative 404 page to navigate users to a working destination and permanently remove pages using a 410 status code.
