  1. Set up Google Analytics and connect it to your website. Be sure to set up the correct tracking code on each webpage so that you can track how visitors interact with your website.

  2. Track search engine and organic traffic sources. Identifying which search engine and organic traffic sources are driving visits to your website is key for understanding how SEO is impacting your business. Use the Source/Medium report to see the breakdown of search engine traffic and the Landing Pages report to see which pages are receiving the most visits from this source.

  3. Monitor keyword performance. Dive into the Search Console report to learn which specific keywords are driving organic search traffic. Identify which ones are performing well, as well as which ones require additional optimization efforts.

  4. Analyze page-level performance. Use the Pages report to identify which pages are receiving the most SEO traffic and analyze the engagement metrics associated with each one in order to determine which ones need further optimization.

  5. Monitor backlinks. Monitor backlinks through the External Links report, which shows the total number of pages linking to your website along with the number of domains linking to your site. Keep an eye out for any unusual spikes or drops in order to identify any potential issues that may arise from link-based activities such as link baiting or link removal requests.

  6. Set up alerts and track trends over time. Use custom alerts to be notified of any changes that could potentially impact your rankings, and use segments to track trends over time per region or referral source.

13. What is crawlability?

Crawlability is the ability of a search engine to find, index and rank website content. It refers to the process of discovering, analyzing and interpreting webpages, links and content by search engine bots or crawlers. Search engine spiders crawl websites to discover their content and structure in order to include them in the search engine index. It is important that websites are optimized for search engine crawlers, since without it, the website's visibility won't reach its full potential.

14. What is an XML sitemap?

An XML sitemap is a file written in the XML language that provides a listing of the URLs for a website. It can be used by search engines to discover and index the website's content. XML sitemaps provide information about the pages, such as when they were last updated, how frequently they are changed, and their relative importance.
