On PageGo to hints
On Page is one of the most fundamental facets of SEO, and is basically considered table stakes - you need to be getting the basics right if you expect to compete in competitive spaces.
Most modern CMS platforms allow you to control and adjust all the major On Page SEO elements, so making fixes or amendments is achievable for SEOs of basically any level. Beyond this, there are certain considerations with the HTML itself, which are by their nature more technical, but can have a big impact on the ability of search engines to extract content accurately (which can have a knock on effect in terms of indexing or ranking).
As such, Sitebulb's On Page Hints are split into 'SEO' and 'HTML';
Sitebulb's On Page SEO Hints highlight potential issues and optimization opportunities for the fundamental elements of the page <title>, the meta description and the <h1> tag.
