Be aware that the creation of a website always goes hand in hand with the SEO strategy. If you still don't know what it is, here's a quick definition: SEO is the set of methods used to make a website appear in the results of search engines, Google in particular. How can you quickly check the SEO of your website (or that of your client)?

Uses a chrome SEO extension: SEOquake

Do you remember? This week, I told you about 4 very useful chrome extensions for webdesign. Well, for SEO, there are some too. One of the ones I use the most: SEO Quake. It's very complete, and yet free. So take advantage of it!

Just download the chrome plug-in, and then install it. Once installed, it will automatically be placed on the menu bar (like all other plug-ins). So all you have to do is choose a site (randomly, for starters). When you are on the site, just click on the extension icon. There you get a (almost) complete analysis.

The SEOquake extension gives you a lot of information about :

  • SEO warnings, followed by a few tips and ground rules to improve them
  • the correct SEO elements

Several criteria come into play:

  • key words
  • titles
  • images
  • and many others...

Actually, SEO is a whole other area. If you want to go further in this field, maybe you should consider subscribing to a SEMRush offer? Actually, SEMRush works with SEOquake. With this tool, you will be able to go even further in the natural referencing of a website.

There's a Youtube video in which I describe this at the bottom of the article. Support me by subscribing to the YouTube channel "Happy Desk Design".

To come back to webdesign, when will you have to quickly check the SEO of a website?

Why and when should you quickly check the SEO of your site (and that of your customers)?

You can start with your site. When you have mastered everything, move on to your (potential) customers' sites. Before interviewing them, why not do a quick SEO analysis of their site? This will prepare you! Indeed, by knowing who (and what) you are dealing with, you will be able to prepare arguments (taking into account the size of their site, what they might need, what you are going to offer them, etc.). Your future client will be convinced that you are a true professional, trustworthy.
