Search Engine Optimisation

SEO Friendly

Auto-Generating HTML Sitemap

Sitemaps can be added to any page of your website via the Sitemap component. You can choose what page of your site you would like the sitemap to start from. All sub pages are automatically added to your sitemap listing and you can choose to hide certain pages from your sitemap if you wish

SEO Friendly

Auto-Generating XML Sitemap

A sitemap.xml file is automatically updated every time you create, update or delete a page on your website. You have full control over what files should be added to your sitemap.xml file, the sitemap priority of each individual page and the sitemap change frequency of each individual page. XML Sitemaps are very important for SEO because they make it easier for search engines to find the important pages of your website.

SEO Friendly

Canonical Tags

Every page of your website will have a canonical tag added to the page source. This is very important for SEO and ensures that search engines only ever index a single URL when each page of your site can possibly be accessed by multiple different URLS.

SEO Friendly

Robots.txt File Editor

Update your robots.txt file directly from the CMS. The robots.txt tells search engines areas of your site structure should not be accessed and avoids overloading your site with requests.

SEO Friendly

Searchable and Indexed

Our websites are built with clean HTML markup that is optimised to be easily indexable by search engines.

SEO Friendly

Meta Titles

You have full control over the exact format of your page titles. These will be automatically generated based on your page and website name to ensure that they are never blank. You can then override the default title when you require greater control.

SEO Friendly

Meta Descriptions

Update the meta descriptions for each page of your website via the CMS to control exactly how each page is listed in search engines.

SEO Friendly

Search engine previews

SEO Friendly

Heading Tag Hierarchy

Within the CMS we provide you with a customised editor to control the tags used for each heading on your web pages.

Full control over image alt tags on your web pages to improve search engine visibility and accessibility of your website.
