This week I asked my social media followers:
++What technical issues do you see on websites that are potentially hurting their SEO performance?++
Here's how they responded:
RyanJones: Messed up redirects, canonical issues, nav that doesn't actually use <a> tags.
Marie_Haynes: Huge amounts of duplicate content dt CMS structure. Improper canonicals or robots.txt files.
John Mills: Too much CSS in the web page.
Christina Lannen: Pages that never load. A former client hooked up with someone new and their contact page will not load as it goes into a continual loop.
Gisele Glosser: Crappy code - even basic HTML tagging like <TBODY> and the notorious lack of </table>. Plus huge flash or GIF graphics that occupy the first fold with no text.
Dianna Huff: Sliders (or carousels). I wrote a blog post about it. Bad usability and bad SEO. Also menu "flyouts." Hate them.
Jordan Mawbey: 404 Error Pages!
Jay Wilner: Poor architecture.
