SEO for a content creator goes like this - keyword research, steady content creation and a little bit of persistence, right? Not really. We forget here a very important leverage, technical SEO. While looking for specific content about technical SEO for content creators or blogs you will find a lot of resources that can only add to your confusion. Some of them will mix everything and you will end up reading about link building and header structure. And while both tactics could be useful, none of them are truly technical. The rest will write about technical SEO for ecommerce sites or even bigger platforms. To add a little bit of clarity to ever expanding topic, we decided to compile a list of useful articles about technical SEO that could be applied to a blog or a website where the main focus is content creation. Let’s go!
