What Is Crawlability and Why Is It so Important for SEO?

When it comes to SEO, crawlability is one topic that doesn’t see much airtime. It’s a shame, too, because it’s an integral part of SEO. By improving your website’s crawlability, you ensure that Google understands what your website is about. And when Google understands what your site is about, it will properly index you and make you searchable. Want to know more about the secret to ranking on Google? Read on! What Are Crawlers? In order to browse, index, and rank the hundreds of millions of webpages on the Internet, search engines use specialized bots called crawlers, also known as spiders, or spiderbots (since they “crawl” like a spider). We consider those terms a bit unfair, though: they’re more like the worker bees of the Internet. These crawlers scour the Internet, searching for new webpages to evaluate and index.

3 Reasons Why the LinkNow Yelp Reviews Are Higher Than They Look

  At LinkNow Media, we take a lot of pride in our work. Whether we’re helping our clients create the perfect website, or improving our marketing services, it’s all about doing good work, all the time.
