Reconcile Real Rankings with Technical SEO to Maximize Visibility in Search

How is the health of your site impacting rankings? Too often, SEOs isolate technical SEO from rank strategy. The two are inseparable! And the most effective SEO strategies combine them.

Join this session to learn how your site’s rankings are directly impacted by crawlability, site structure, content quality and indexability.

After this session, you will be able to:

  • Tie technical SEO KPIs to real rankings.
  • Make data-driven decisions about ranking strategy based on site structure, content quality or site speed.
  • Optimize crawlability and discoverability of content with SEO log file analysis.
  • Manage indexibility of content, capturing factors like noindex tags and non-canonical pages that are less likely or ineligible to be included in search engine indices.

Search Presence Intelligence: Where Search Meets Business Intelligence

I Let’s talk about the pain points of traditional SEO. For years, SEO has been considered tactical not strategic, reactive rather than proactive. In far too many instances, it is left out of the ideation of key business strategies, from content to product to services.

But what if we could centralize SEO, shifting it to the center of the organization with a solid line to all departments? Join Stephan Bajaio, VP of Professional Services & Co-Founder of Conductor, as he discusses why this move is necessary for optimal company growth and the data – Search Presence Intelligence – that makes it possible.
