Technical SEO is the process of ensuring that technical on-site elements of a webpage are configured to maximise the potential organic visibility in search engines. This includes making sure the website can be crawled easily and has an architecture best fitting to user experience and entity classifications. The practice of technical SEO itself is concerned with web technology factors that directly impact a search engine’s ability to crawl, render and index a website — which ultimately impacts on a site’s ability to rank for relevant keywords in search engines. Google’s process of ranking a website can be broken down into four stages: • Crawl • Render • Index • Rank Technical SEO concerns itself with ensuring a website can be crawled easily, rendered by search engines, allowing for more accurate indexing. Once this has been achieved, Google can attribute and weight it’s many “ranking factors” to your webpage (and website) to determine a ranking for user queries.
An SEO strategy is the planning of what you want to achieve through your organic search channel on a KPI-led basis — also, the planning of what SEO activities will be required to achieve these KPIs. It is fundamentally the process of ensuring that all SEO activities that are undertaken have a set purpose and that the findings from these activities can be applied in achieving your KPIs.

SEO migrations differs from project to project, but overall, they include ensuring every reasonable step is taken to eliminate the risk of losing traffic from organic search: • A technical SEO specification for the new website at the planning stage (recommended) • Technical SEO audit of the new website • Organic keyword ranking checks before and after migration • Google Search Console & Bing Webmaster Tools configuration • Project management • URL structure analysis and management (if necessary) A new website should, in the vast majority of cases, mean an uplift in organic search traffic, if done to SEO best practice, taking advantage of new technology, combined with better design, and user experience (UX). It is also a good idea that the SEO migration is carried out by an independent stakeholder in the development.
